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.
