Story

PLEASE CAN YOU HELP GRACE

I am trying to help Dogwatch West Midlands UK to save Grace here and five other dogs in Spain. Galgos (Spanish Greyhounds) like Grace are used for hunting, then indiscriminately discarded, sometimes after only one season and many are found with cigarette and acid burns, thrown down wells and hanging from trees where they are left to die - slowly.

I am well aware that despite being “a nation of animal lovers” we have our own problems with animal cruelty, but thankfully with the help of all our wonderful rescue groups, we don’t see it to such an extent and numbers as the Galgos and other dogs in Spain are found. I have seen it reported that Galgos are the most abused breed in the world. I don’t know if this is precise information, but where i saw it hasn’t been challenged.

Having put in a search for Galgos in both the general section and images of the web sites, I was utterly shocked to the core by what I read and saw and cannot just ignore it. I want to do my bit to help these poor creatures in some small way and hope that some of you who read this are able to help too, by donating to this page, however small the amount. Hopefully it will add up. The amount mentioned above will help towards bringing one dog over here: vet checked, neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, tested for EU diseases and given a passport. The donation asked for each dog is just that; the rest is given in rescuers‘ time and expense - and they are doing this all the time, sometimes in any free hours they have over and above their usual job. Because they care. Please help if you can.

We are also urgently seeking a SPECIAL and understanding HOME for a lovely AUTISTIC DOG - yes you did read that correctly. Do you know anyone who can help?

WE ARE LOOKING FOR MORE FOSTER HOMES IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. COULD ANYONE HELP?
