For the wonderful volunteers in Spain, if they don't own their property, it can be a difficult situation when an owner decides they want the property back. Ann Marie Payne was hopeful she could finally relax but things took a turn for the worse. Ann tells the story here of her experience with another woman.
'The dream of having kennels in La Cala has stayed exactly that.! A dream. Less than a week before signing the contract, and the contract to form an association she has come up with issues that were never mentioned before!
But that's OK, because I would never have signed a contract with such strict stipulations, and especially if it affected the way I run https://www.facebook.com/annscaninecare/ To me the dogs will always come first. So having waited around 9 months for the kennels to be completed, I am in exactly the same position now as I was then. I just wish that things would have come to light sooner.
So please if any of my friends in the Malaga area, or estate agents know of anywhere we can rent with kennels, stables or a place to put porta cabins to adapt as kennels please let me know, and the place has to be legal. And West of Malaga. Contact Ann on this link.
Black is beautiful and this is stunning galgo Phoenix, rescued and safe now with Dogs of Portugal. See more about him on this weblink. Contact Dogs of Portugal direct if you can offer him a forever home.
'I'm asking for help for a gaglgo rescued 1 year ago and who hasn't found adoption yet. He is about three / four years old, in good health and, like the others, has a hunter's instinct. He is in Malaga and he can travel. He is very good with people and children. His name is Percy.
Not about galgos but greyhounds, who also suffer terrible abuse. Hundreds of British, Irish and Australian greyhounds end up in China, where they eat dogs, as you know! Belle Vue, Manchester, and Peterborough Stadiums are two recent closures in England, Florida is a recent closure in the US, and now Kansas. Grey2K USA has launched a 'Help End Greyhound Racing' action pack of petitions.
'Big news is that a Kansas dog track will be sold to create greenspace and a new business center offering 1,000 jobs, we know that the trend is with the greyhounds. That's why we have just launched our brand new action center! That’s right, greyhound advocates can now sign multiple petitions to decision makers around the world, send emails with a click of the mouse to every governor in every US racing state, and share special memes and messages on social media to help greyhounds far and wide.'
'This goodbye is really going to hurt. Remember Amy who was living in atrocious conditions during the lockdown. Sue JAy, through a friend, and myself, and with veterinary support managed to get her out of danger and down to Mijas where she was examined and vaccinated by Costapet.
Amy came into my life as an unknown quantity but, immediately found her place in my heart. She is such a beautiful character, kind, so loving and also funny. When we were at Costapet she stole a treat whilst I was paying for her treatment, and brought it home with her. She settled in so easily with Rosely and the very timid little Pearl. But every time I put clean washing on the table Amy decided it was her place to sleep! I put a box on the table to stop her doing this and she decided that was better to sleep in the box than on top of the washing as she could curl up better in it.
This poor galga was found on the street this week. I've asked if she has been rescued yet.
This galguita has given birth on the street in Merida. She's in danger, because some neighbors don't want her over there.
Provisional foster is needed where you can have mommy and babies until they can give up for adoption.
Can you help?
Watch the music video we made with ALFAKAT. A documentary music video, if that genre exists, as all images are from our project and haven't been used for the film. I hope you like it, we believe it shows quite well what goes on with the galgos. Please share it
