I first came across Vera Thorenaar when I started my Galgo News blog in 2007 and travelled to Spain regularly thereafter. As with many other rescue associations, the Protectora has grown over the years. Here's the story, together with a link to galgos hoping for forever homes.
'The History of Galgos en Familia is tightly linked to its founder Vera Thorenaar, who started her journey and immersion into the difficult situation of the galgo since 2008, and came into contact with a Dutch association that dealt with adoptions for abandoned galgos.
Dedicated to the translations, to getting her work known in Spain and being a link between said associaction and other associactions dedicated to the protection of galgos in our country, she started to write her personal blog to explain the difficulties experienced by this breed, to broadcast cases of abandonment and to retell her own experience as a foster carer of galgos waiting for adoption.
