Galgos del Sol (Murcia) makes saving galgos in Spain a reality!

There is an ABSOLUTE NEED to highlight the plight of galgos (greyhounds) in Spain. This blog is to help the refuge, Galgos Del Sol in Murcia, Costa Blanca.

23 May 2011 @ 23:11

Galgos del Sol is a small charity rescue based in Murcia, Spain that rescues abandoned and injured galgos (Spanish hunting greyhounds), rehabilitates them and finds them forever homes in the UK and other parts of Europe. 

Thousands of galgos are abandoned or killed annually at the end of each short hunting season and as they are not always viewed as potential pets in Spain, they usually end up in perreras (pounds), where their lives are ended, often not in ways we would consider humane.   

Galgos del Sol is entirely dependent on fundraising for its survival and is run by three dedicated women, Tina, Angela and Gaynor, assisted by a group of dedicated volunteers based in Spain, France and the UK. I am Tina's publicist, helping where I can, trying to create awareness. 

After seeing the wonderful work that this charity does Penny decided she wanted to help raise some much needed cash! She will be at the ANTISHA gift shop in PLAYA FLAMENCA centro commercial (behind Super Cor on N 332, Orihuela Costa, Cost Blanca) on MONDAY 30th MAY from 10.30am to 4.30pm offering mini treatments, talking about angels, reiki, animal healing, crystals and all things spiritual....Penny is asking everyone who has a treatment or comes along for advice or information to contribute 5€ to the charity....also BIG bags of dog biscuits are more than welcome!

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE DAY WILL GO TO THE CHARITY so please go along to meet Penny and help a good cause. I'll be there.

For more information you can email Penny via her web site    

There is a feature about this event in The Leader  today.
