Galgos 112 picked up this poor injured galgo at the beginning of the week. They are looking for an urgent foster for him in the Girona area.
'This is Mar, picked up in this state in a town of Jaén, no chip but with an injury on the right knee and tendon. By having an open wound it is infected. She needs surgery asap so the tendon doesn't retract and we can save that paw. To be able to operate it we need a foster home in Girona or as close as possible. Foster homes are urgently needed for injured galgos to recover from operations.
If you are in Span and can foster, please don't hesitate and send your details and phone number to email@example.com and we will get back to you quickly.
The association takes care of all veterinary expenses and transportation of the foster dogs. Operation Mar is going to pay off with the help of all of you. We're counting on you!

A couple of nights ago we suffered a storm and strong winds which unfortunately caused a lot of damage to our Rescue center. A large part of the fence has been torn loose and our storage space has been completely destroyed.
In addition to our usual daily tasks, we now have days of cleaning up debris. A solution will also have to be found for the storage space.
'Our friends at Puntanimals don't have enough coats for their many dogs. New Galgos are coming in every day....
Can you make galgo coats to ship to them, This link is to buy a knitting pattern for a galgo.

The WeWard app is good news for walkers, dog owners & Scooby alike. Link the app to the pedometer on your phone and when you walk your dog (or even without the dog), you clock up points and can convert them into cash donations
for Scooby. Available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian, it can be downloaded from the AppStore and Google Play. Apparently dog owners walk 1,600 kilometres every year, so with 1£$€ per 100 points, all the dog owners reading this could boost Scooby’s funds just by walking the dog.
This year we launched our education project, “A Wet Nose In Your Life” ("Un Hocico En Tu Vida”) which is directed at schools, youth groups and parent associations. This important venture teaches young people, their parents and guardians about the importance of properly relating to our dogs and understanding how they "talk" to us. This is fundamental to the prevention of bites. Our trainer, Pablo, is keen to talk to all education authorities and youth services about running the programme in their
organisations. He goes along to the class or session and gives an interactive, informative, compassionate talk to the group. In his experience the students are participative and ask a lot of questions. They also enthusiastically tell anecdotes about their own pets. We are always grateful to the teaching staff for warmly welcoming the topic and leading by example with a strong
interest. Almost every participant gains something from the event and has better information about understanding the signals dogs send us.

Our Virtual Adoption Programme is a good way of supporting some of the needy animals in the Scooby shelter. You can choose for yourself or as a gift for family and friends for 10€ per month or 115€ per year. We will send the virtual adopter a certificate, a photo of the chosen animal and updates twice per year. There are lots of animals to choose from,
Granny - an oldie;
Donja - has only one ear
Zuki - had gangrene before arriving at the
shelter and lost both of her back paws;
Paris - the gentle giant and an old faithful
Alba the albino horse is there with Plus y
Ultra, the goats, alongside Cayenne y
Pepper, the donkeys. All overseen by
Blackie the head of the cats in our cattery!
You may recall from our autumn bulletin we appealed for financial help towards kennel repairs. We have not been able to do the work because we failed to raise the funds. In addition there is a lack of available, skilled bricklayers in our area. It is pretty much impossible to find labour to do the job and within a reasonable estimate (€5k).
Our appeal remains and if you are able to donate towards it, we’d be very grateful. We’d love to complete the renovations in the spring when it is less rainy. We desperately need to repair brickwork, smooth the floor area to make cleaning easier
And now a rehoming story - not a galgo but an example of the work Scooby does.
;The polar cold has suddenly arrived in Spain and we need your help. The authorities warn of a sharp drop in temperatures and, as you know, fuel for dog radiators has doubled in price. We also need blankets to make coats, which you can buy and we can pick up or directly send us your help. Everything adds up and everything counts, to shelter the Spanish abandoned dogs.
Will you help us with a donation for abandoned dogs in Spain?
We are an Animal Protection Association with a small shelter located in Punta Umbria, Huelva. We rescue street animals to offer them a second chance.
A few days ago we learnt that the police had picked up a mother with her daughter from a polygon in a deplorable state of health. The mother unfortunately didn't manage to survive so much pain and abandonment.
But the little one has fought for her life after being discharged from her hospitalization at @hospitalveterinariofauna, she continues to recover in the shelter and getting more beautiful and stronger.
SURY - This is how we baptized her. She is a love, she is affectionate even though life has only been cruel to her. It is amazing how resilient and strong animals are. You are a champion without a doubt
