The rescue of Shadow and Rebecca today in searing heat
27 July 2014 @ 16:43


As someone posted on Facebook "Barb wire, high fences, heat, farmers, floods, acres of land, snakes, none of those will bother Tina, she will get those dogs, especially if she is wearing her super hero pants over her shorts."

Videos of a galgo & a puppy rescue 





From Tina "We are searching acres of orange groves for the pup and galga with the broken leg..... The heat is incredible and no we have no drinks, hats or sun cream! Welcome to volunteering with GdS but we will rescue these pups. Not giving up....."













From Tina "Ok on our way to the trauma hospital with Shadow. Little Rebecca has eaten and had a nice long drink, she's relaxing , sadly Shadow has a few tough days ahead of him yet."


If you've some spare change to donate please Paypal and mark it "Shadow and Rebecca"

Updated later today.......
From Tina "The place where we found Shadow and Rebecca yesterday appears to have another galgo inside struggling for food and water. There is a little dirty stream so wondering if that's why they are going in there"  

No doubt Tina will be back there to locate it asap.

This is a wonderful organisation. My husband, Peter Martin, is planning to hold a 12 hour 'Fiddlathon' in October. He has organised one before in Cyprus where he played for 12 hours accompanied by musicians, singers and dancers and raised a lot of money for charity. He wants to do the same for Galgos del Sol so we are looking for anyone who would like to accompany him, also looking for sponsorship. Please contact us, so that the wonderful work that Tina and her volunteers do can continue.
