Galgos del Sol NEVER EVER STOP!
31 January 2014 @ 12:58



February 1 marks the end of hunting season when many Galgos meet a fate worse than the life of cruelty that they have already endured. Read about this here ..

Galgos del Sol currently have around 100 Galgos, including puppies, in their care. Galgos are being found abandoned on an almost daily basis.

With so many sick & injured galgos in lately that need numerous trips to the vets and medical care GdS need help with this more than ever. It's very difficult to keep up with what Tina & her partner, Kyle, plus dedicated volunteers, are doing as they're so incredible busy. You only have to visit their Facebook page to see this!

There are various ways you can help support this fantastic charity, GdS.

GdS have two charity shops too. They always need goods (especially furniture) to sell in these. 

They will accept anything - clothes, toys, furniture, books, DVDs, electricals, anything that is of decent quality to re-sell to help the Galgos at GDS and also other abandoned dogs. 50% of all profits will be donated to Los Unicos, a dog charity that helps all breeds.
