Greyhound Compassion (supporting Protectora y Santuario Scooby from the UK) is pleased to announce that we have linked up with Quaker Concern for Animals. Part of this relationship will bring benefit to a special galgo - Brisa.
Brisa was rescued earlier this year as part of a pack of hunting dogs held by one man and rented out to hunters on their boar hunting excursions. Protectora y Santuario Scooby rescued all of the 36 dogs from unprecedented circumstances of neglect and animal abuse.
Brisa is an older lady from the pack and is now living at Protectora y Santuario Scooby. She does have Ehrlichiosis and this needs regular treatment with antibiotics (doxycyclilne).
A few videos of galgos enjoying the freedom that comes with life as a companion dog in a loving home. What we would wish for every galgo. Plus a galgo doing agility and whippets doing flyball at Crufts!
I've copied this post from the Action for Animal Welfare Spain facebook page, written by Viv. I admire all everyone living in Spain (whatever nationality) living with the huge problem of abandoned, injured, starving, maltreated animals on their doorstep. How can they turn their back on such a dog, just because they have the legal limit for the number of dogs they can keep?

Primary rescue, Secondary rescue, Third line rescue, what’s best, what will make a difference? Perhaps a better title is, 'less is more', improving rescue, what do we need to do?
The recent case in France of an English ex pat keeping rescue dogs and having some of them removed, has produced a lot of controversy and differing opinions amongst rescuers.
Some people think it was wrong to take on so many dogs without resources and some hail her as a hero for picking up dogs that might otherwise have been killed in pounds.
From Cobie at Scooby Residencia Valladolid. 'Certain galgueros do this to their dogs, as if they don´t yet suffer enough: they brandmark their dogs like they are cows. This was done to Riku, who was saved a few months ago by Scooby from Jerez de la Frontera. No wonder that he first is a bit shy with strangers because you never know what they are going to do to you...'
