I recently saw this article on the subject of osteosarcoma in greyhounds. I have been involved with greyhounds/galgos for 20+ years and have not come across it as a common problem. Have any of you readers experience of it?
In this article from Levriers sans Frontiers, you can see the work Fondacion Benjamin Mehnert undertakes to repair and put back together injured galgos, before they go to their forever homes. Damaged limbs and tails, they all get attention.
Here is an appeal from SPCAI (which arrived in my mail Inbox) who, amongst supporting animals rescues around the world, are also helping the galgos in Spain. Last year they responded to an appeal from me for a grant for Pepis Dog refuge to pay for a concrete driveway from the lower refuge up to the Galgo centre. Before that, it was just mud and Jane and Alan had to manually carry or drag all supplies including water to the centre and their home.
The story here is about a galga rescued by SOS Galgos of Barcelona. It is also a story about the work SPCAI are doing to help the Spanish galgos.
