STILL MISSING 25th APRIL
Tina's devastated after all that's happened to Princessa this past week. She was thrown, with another galgo, into a 30 metre depth well then Tina's vet said he believed she was ok apart from cuts & Tina took her home then Princessa started losing lots of blood & couldn't breathe well.
Tina raced her & the other galgo up to Alicante's San Vincente's veterinary hospital who said she had a collapsed lung & internal injuries. She was in there 2-3 days then Tina took her home.
Who would've thought an ill galgo could possibly jump a 2m fence with two rows of barbed wire on top?

New arrival Fleur... approx 3mths old, found in the road destined to be squashed. Rescued by a volunteer ..... she needs a home asap.
Not a galga pup pure but is she cute or what? She will be a large dog..... enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org

This billboard has been bought outright and put up in the town of Pilar de Horadada right at the top of the busy highstreet C/Mayor. This town has seen a problem with dog abandonment hence why we chose this location. However there are still many more locations to hit hard yet.
Special thanks to Grati and his family for allowing us to use their land to put up this board and huge thanks to the photographer Paul Croes in Belgium for giving us permission to use his photo.
