Great read from a volunteer who recently spent time helping with the animals at Scooby. Please consider spending a holiday doing the same thing. You don't have to stay in an hotel, Scooby have caravan accommodation.
Here is a video of the puppies produced by Scarlett and Monika at Pepis Dog Refuge. And a second one. Both bitches were dumped very late in their pregnancies. They all need feeding, along with the other galgos, podencos and rescued dogs. Please donate.
This video was taken by Luca, president of Anpana, the Italian galgo rescue association currently visiting Pepis Dog Refuge in Pedrera. He took this film on the drive down from the village to the refuge. The second half of the video is taken from Pepis. Check out the speed of the vehicle.
I witnessed similar 'training' when I was there, man on quad bike with 4 galgos. This was made illegal in Andalucia but a couple of years back the Junta rescinded the law.
The second one is a story from Scooby about a galga rescued in Salamanca; unfortunately they were unable to save her life. They are appealing for anyone who knows who the owner is. You can see the dog if you click on the link at the end of the report on the Scooby blog.
Bev Farmer of Podenco Friends is passing on this important information about Cani Leish. Cani leish was launched in 2012 a vaccine developed that was supposed to prevent dogs contracting leishmania. She never bought into it and never had any of her dogs vaccinated with it. Read this and it will explain why there is a petition to have the vaccine withdrawn here in Spain.
'We are proprietors of affected dogs or dead after administration of CaniLeish and people concerned about the health and welfare of dogs. We want this drug gets withdrawn by its apparent high level of toxicity, and so they stop hurting dogs.
