3rd April 2014
Scooby blog - contacted me two days ago a girl from Lominchar-Toledo. Had long behind an abandoned greyhound ... last March 31 found him murdered and buried semi. Today April 2nd has 6 other greyhounds found murdered, some stuffed in bags, others with signs of having been burnt and others hanged. How long will we have to attend such scenes??
Has the Seprona and will lodge a complaint but none of them has thus chip ..
Progress is slow in Europe when it comes to authorities taking action against perpetrators of animal cruelty. Here are two reports from PACMA about their success in achieving prosecution against maltreatment of animals in Spain. The articles are in Spanish but if you click on the dropdown menu in the top right-hand corner, you can select English. Thank you Kate for sending them to me.
Cool To Be Kind has been launched by Sarah Fisher. Basically it is encouraging people to make a short 2 minute video saying what your promise is to help and to be kind to animals. Then you nominate two or three other people to do something along the same lines. If they don't have animals, they can help in a refuge, cattery, riding stables, donate food and/or medicines.
I was nominated by Natalie Osborne. Now you can see my Cool to be Kind video and I hope that many of you will join in and make a similar video, upload it to Youtube - and facebook if you have a page. Just nominate 3 people - make sure you ask their permission first - then make the video, upload and share.
Regular readers will have followed the stories of Estrela, Foguete, Duke and Esperanza - the galgo family rescued from an abusive alcoholic galguero. Teresa and her family have given their all - literally - to help the dogs in the very poor area of Portugal where they live. This year they personally have suffered as no one should - and now Teresa's daughter is appealing for help as her mother is ill from the strain of it all. Please help her get back on her feet and continue helping the animals - who would suffer without them. Please share.
