Galgos AssociationIRENE SALVADOR, ASSOCIATION PARTNER
The GALGOS Association was established in March 2012. Its priority is to denounce the martyrdom of Spanish Greyhounds, called Galgos and Podencos.Each year, thousands of Greyhounds are being tortured and massacred in southern Spain, on behalf of a barbaric tradition.Used for hunting,
these dogs represent the honor of their masters and must be punished if they perform poorly.
To illustrate this situation, you can see some pictures of our protégés, before and after their rescue (we have chosen the least upsetting ones). Across Europe, associations like GALGOS join forces. In Spain, thousands of volunteers are fighting every day, often without any financial means, to save these little sufferers. Sadly enough, the government still refuses to take an action and to pass a law to protect them.
The Association GALGOS saves dozens of Galgos and Podencos each year, putting them safely in paid dog shelters, waiting to find them families. It supports financially various shelters across Andalusia. Every year it collects for these shelters anything that can be used to improve the lives of the dogs,
such as dry and wet food, treats, medications, etc…
The association also regularly participates in various animal events (such as the International Jumping of Chantilly, in the presence of Irene SALVADOR) to widely publicize the suffering of Greyhounds in Spain. The association has representatives throughout France.
You can help us by adopting one of our small survivors, which are truly wonderful companions, or by sponsoring one of our proteges in pension there (90 Euros per month), or by making a donation (eligible for tax exempt), which will allow us to continue helping them.They do not speak, but we are their voices.
And on their behalf, we verbalize a big THANK YOU for your generosity. We are grateful and appreciate all possible help you may grant those who need it. http://www.association-galgos.fr Contact: 06 42 69 41 55 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
