Galgos del Sol has come on in huge leaps & bounds over the months, please catch up on their Facebook page detailed below.

GrannyPants and Hank got the call to say the inspectors would be with us in under an hour. They gave us our emergency list of jobs but what they didnt know this is the moment I've personally been waiting for. 

Do you know how it feels to come from illegal fincas, ducking and diving always worrying the dogs will get taken away to now a legal facility thats allowed to be here & our dogs never being put at risk again? Ill tell you how it feels, FREAKING LIBERATING! 

We were praised on how well the dogs were kept, the installation itself, the cleaning standard operation procedure (we now have two employees that clean), the data base was fully up to date thanks to Eva, every dog registered with its history in place, all passports and paperwork done. 

Well done team for doing such a great job. It was great to hear the words we go above and beyond to give these galgos and podencos a great life whilst here. Im chuffed to bits, man that feels good. It was sad leaving the fincas but in the end it was about doing it correctly & legally, the bigger picture, making a long term difference and here we are guys, here we are! Thank you!

We have a way to go yet before we can finish our reception area but one thing we do need to start putting in place asap is the main toilets inside the first reception area, this is to pass an upcoming inspection (although it won’t be finished, the work will have started).

Will you donate to allow us to dump?

Just ONE euro for a number one,
Just TWO euros for a number two or
Just THREE euros for both

Everyone who donates will be entered into a prize draw to win GDS custom toilet paper, there will be 12 lucky winners!


If we hit 4000 euros then thats 8000 euros, yes I’m a whizz at math you know. Thank you Rick!

Each day join us for some light hearted toilet humour with questions asked by the GDS fur babies and enjoy the videos showing the dire places we have found to replace the thrown in our moments of need.

To donate your 1, 2 or 3 euros please do so with a note in the field donate to dump — option for using a credit card is on our donate page or to use our Paypal options

Exciting times, the new centre has opened
Sunday, January 24, 2016

From Tina, President of Galgos del Sol.....

"Sue from the UK, Ingeborg & Lenny from Holland, Nina from Austria (here long term), Sam and myself. Just missing Julie who has already gone back to the UK & Olga who is the behind the scenes silent assassin but here is the awesome 'A' team that have helped us move so smoothly to the New Center!

It's been very long days, lots of hard graft and I couldn't have wished for a better group of people to do it. Thank you so much girls, really this would have been impossible without you. It really has been an experience! LOVE THESE CHICAS! Thank you!"
