Four babies, galgos, abandoned inside a box and next to a rubbish bin. Because that is what animals are to some despicable beings, things that if they are not worth are thrown away. It is seen that the breeder kept the females of the litter, which are more sought after in the galguero world, and throw the males because they are not worth keeping.
Nefelis ia an almost 9 year old Galga ( Born 10/31/2011). This very poor girl was brought in and left in the shelter by the Galguero, not useful anymore…She arrived with tumors in both mammary-chains; she needs at least two operations, if the diagnostic tests do not show even more serious metastases.
This adorable sweetheart is very docile and sociable both with people and with other dogs
After her operations she will be in very urgent need of a (foster)-home to recover, and after that a loving forever Home, where she can be, cherished, pampered and loved for the rest of her life
Ever wonder about the Protectora Scooby Medina shelter and what it looks loike? How big is it? How do they keep all the animals. Well, below is a link to a video of the shelter from the sky. The horses - who don't like the 'bird in the sky' are mostly from a rescue of over 36 in terrible circumstances and which are the subject of an ongoing court case.
From Galgo's Rescue Almeria, Sandy tells the story.
'Saving animals is a never ending story. We received a message if we could help this girl. At this moment we don’t know much about her past. Is she’s traumatised, does she have wounds/ injuries, what about her blood results.....? Wednesday she came to GRA the beginning of a new life / future for this girl.
Yesterday we went to the vet with Cheli, named after the girl who found her. She received a full examination and a bloodtest. Her blood results were negative for Filaria and Erlichia but unfortunately positive for Leish and Anaplasma.To start the right treatment a blood sample has been taken.
Alex and Alexa are two five months old little galgos. They are siblings and we took them out of the perrera Provincial de Valladolid a few days ago. They are both very cheerful and love the company of other dogs and people.
Would you like to share your life with any of them? Or why not? Maybe with both of them?
Our help was asked to find a new family for Paco. This gorgeous, big young boy was adopted when he was 3 months old. Due to circumstances the family could not longer take care of him so he ended up in a foster family. Paco is a young ( 1 year 3 months ) energetic boy who loves to play. He gets on very well with other dogs ( male / female). Paco grew up in a warm foster family and is already used to living as a family dog.
Thank you to everyone who donated towards the Leish treatment for Nico. She is improving every day as you can see from the photo. She has her medication in chunks of meat, so Sandy and John can be sure she is getting it all.
