'We recently were asked for our help from a small charity in Devon, Hearts 4 Dogs, who were raising funds to help 3 galgos. One, Roma, needed an urgent operation on her back leg. We were pleased to be able to offer some funding to Sue and her team and have just heard that Roma is recovering well from her operation and plans are being made to bring her, Trianna, and puppy Alma, to the UK in July.'
From Hearts 4 Paws Dog Rescue
'A few days ago Greyhounds In Need (GIN) were made aware of our need to raise emergency funds for Roma and her operation. They were also told that unfortunately because of lack of funding we were unable to take the two other galgos that were in the Perrera with her. They have now been taken on by another rescue , we are glad to say.
GIN said they would like to help support us and we are happy to announce that because of their very generous donation along with the money we are raising we have managed to reserve two more precious souls to come over on the same transport as Roma.
Let me introduce you to Trianna and baby Alma,found alone in the countryside, covered in tics and fleas and very hungry.
Please check out Greyhounds in Need. They do a tremendous amount of work supporting other rescues in the plight of the galgos in Spain and sighthounds in the UK.
Thank you so much.
NB Just my own opinion, but I do wish that associations in the UK such as Hearts 4 Paws would take dogs for homing which are already in a shelter, which then leaves space for a perrera rescued dog. Protectora Scooby, for example, have hundreds of galgos waiting for forever homes, many rescued from perreras. GIN takes galgos already in shelters.
