It's a nightmare for Jane and Alan Brian at Pepis Refuge in Pedrera, between Malaga and Seville - abandoned and injured and starving galgos and podencos in the olive groves around the refuge. there's no letup. Jane tells the story. 'We've got an abandoned podenco up the lane from the refuge which they have been feeding for 2 weeks in an effort to catch him, although there's no room for him because the refuge is full! Last week when we went up the track to feed the Podenco, he was not there...but this lad was...a bag of bones and too weak to put up any resistance. Could we leave him there as we dont have any space left to keep him and an extra mouth to feed on an already overstretched budget....A big fat NO...A small meat dinner and a soft place to lay in the warm sun...and he rested.
Now extra blankets and a warm coat and four more meat dinners, he was settled down for the night.
Now see him on the 2nd photo below, one week on! We've named him Callum.'
As well as Callum, look what else they found tied to the refuge gates this week!
