Because of Covid-19 and lockdown, hundreds of animal adoptions are on hold - till the reserved animals can once again travel to their forever homes. Scooby has hundreds of animals in its care. Please take a look at the video and hear Fermin's appeal, and donate if you can spare. Thanks.
Regular readers will know that I sometimes publish amusing cartoons by Richard Skipworth, who is passionate about greyhounds in the UK, but the cartoons are also great for galgos. There is now a range of collars, key fobs...on sale using his designs.
This just in from Izzy & Finn's Hound Boutique, who made a donation to Greyhound Trust Hall Green for every Skipworth collar they sold!....
Since the launch of the Rich Skipworth's Greyhound Designs collars on the website we have raised a whopping £1002 for Greyhound Trust Hall Green. A massive Thank You to everyone who has purchased a collar, lead or keyfob as you have all helped with this amazing total.They are all still available to buy from the charity section on the website and a donation from each sale still goes to the greyhounds
Galgos 112 have worked for many years rescuing and rehoming abandoned and injured galgos and some podencos in the Barcelona area. Here are the stories of 4 hounds recently rescued.
'This is ARIN, he lay down at the door of Ainara and Ander because he couldn't take it anymore. When the family dog began to cry and bark at the door, they went out to see what was happening, and there he was, without strength, unable to take another step.
Fortunately he went to the best hands. They took him in his arms, took him inside and gave him food and drink. He was taken to the vet and he contacted us.
He only weighed 17kg, is about 2 years old and has a scar on his neck where the microchip used to be, in addition to a lot of wounds in his malnourished body. Ainara and Ander have decided to be his foster home until they find a family. His happy face says it all. Now Arin knows that nothing bad will happen to him, and that he will no longer have to roam the mountain looking for something to eat.
We rescued VALENTÍN on 14 February ... we couldn't have chosen a more suitable name for him. He is a young, friendly, and beautiful galgo inside and out, despite all the huge scars that run along his body.
'He's only 9 months old and he's so scared of people. He won't let a collar near him and bites when you try to touch him.
With that behavior anyone would think that Prince was born and lived on the street, but no, he has been brought in by his owner who has got rid of the most surly because he has 20 more galgos! Poor Prince! What he has had to live in his short life.
Need a foster home that has experience with this kind of dogs and help you trust people.
We don't want Prince to spend every year of his life at the shelter.
