A few months ago they gave us notice that a very weak skeletal sparrow had appeared in a field. We took care of her and she has since been recovering in foster care. As you can see below CANDELA doesn't look the same, it's great.
Her foster can no longer take care of her, and we believe that entering the shelter would be a very sudden change for her, so we ask you to make a space in your home for her.
We take care of feeding, vetting, etc.. Just needs a home until she finds her forever family.
Hunting season in Spain will soon start again, for 4 months. How many galgos will be injured, abandoned - far too many born with no hope of a happy future at the hands of a galguero. This story was published on my Save the Galgo facebook page this week.
Animales Perdidos y Encontrados en Sevilla
URGENT WARNING: GALGA IN DANGER OF HIT AND RUN
Sevilla. Mayor of Guadaíra Round two. Passing on the Decathlon
Found Barcina Galga without collar. She's about to be run over. Not picked up. Does anyone recognize her or can help her?
Then in one of the comments there was this information from Antonio Valle.
This galga was stolen yesterday (2/9/2023) at noon and her two daughters also. This one has been released because she is old, she has an owner and since we saw the message we have not stopped looking for her until it went dark! Tomorrow we will be sweeping the area with more people to find her. If you see it again someone do not hesitate to contact me in private message and thank you very much to everyone.
Pam McLeod is joining the Kilt Walk next month raising funds to help yet more galgos and podencos make their way to the UK and forever homes. It's almost a year ago when Pam very kindly responded to my plea for help for a young podenco badly injured on the roadside. Wilf made an excellent recovery and travelled to the UK and his forever home.
Please sponsor Pam, she's been training hard for the 23km walk.
Last year, climatologically speaking, was very bad for our sanctuary residents, and this year is coming just as or even worse...
The forage is scarce and we are having to buy a lot of thought to elders to keep our animals well fed, assuming this a great economic discharge.
We have sown alfalfa and we are hoarding and taking advantage of all that we can, but this is not enough for the 50 horses and donkeys and the 46 sheep and goats who live in our Sanctuary, so we ask help for them, so they can have the happy life that they deserve.
Any contribution will be more than welcome.
El Refugio de Leo is a non-profit association registered in the Registry of Associations of the Junta de Andalucía. Most of the people who care for it are volunteers who dedicate their time and effort to help and care for abandoned and mistreated animals in the Axarquia.
The animals we have stay with us until they find a home.
Our Mission is to welcome them, give them shelter and basic care such as food and hygiene, veterinary care, affection and prepare them for a second chance.
Leo's Refuge survives thanks to membership fees, donations, sponsors and events organized by our volunteers.
We invite you to browse our website, get to know us and our animals and help us in any way you can.
El Refugio de Leo are now running a fundraiser. Here's what they say about it.
