DAY 166: THE DOGS HAVE BEEN SAVED!
The incredible team out near Sevilla have saved the dogs. HOORAY!!!
THANK YOU to Olga and the team!
I was just about to press ‘publish’ on a blog I was writing to tell you I’ve JUST booked tickets to go back to Spain and this message comes in!
Incredible stuff. I’m so pleased.
The podenco (small brown dog) has clearly got a very bad wound on his waist but no infection. He will be seen by the vet tomorrow and then kenneled. No doubt he is terrified. The galga has gone to the shelter for the night and seems OK.
I shall update you on progress when I know more but for now we can breathe a sigh.
In the meantime, as you know, I have promised to give funds to give these dogs a temporary shelter until they can be taken on by a proper home or long-term shelter. No one has any space at the moment as the situation with Galgos has been unprecedentedly bad.
Please please consider donating (and mention you want to give the money for the new rescue dogs) so we can begin to rebuild the life of these dogs whose trust in us has been sorely damaged.
You can also buy prints by clicking here – since these pictures are of Charl’s dogs this money will go to her rescue dogs who also need funds desperately.
Thank you, thank you.
Oh, by the way, they’ve named the podenco ‘Martin’! I’ve got to find it a new home now!
READ MY BLOG ON SUNDAY: I’m going back to Spain early next week to do a complete photo project on Galgos and to go and meet Martin and the galga.
Tune in to read what’s in store…
