Event | SOS Galgos

Today is a big day for the greyhounds in Spain as their fate is being discussed during a debate at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. The debate is taking place in the context of the ongoing written declaration 006/20013 on putting an immediate end to the torture and mistreatment of greyhounds in Europe and has been put on the agenda by Michèle Striffler, Member of the European Parliament and Vice President of the Animal Welfare Intergroup. Several French but also organizations from Belgium, Holland and Spain will join the debate and speak in name of the Spanish greyhound about their miserable situation and their efforts to make a change. Fanny Rabourdin, will attend on behalf of SOS Galgos and she is just like us a foster family who has adopted a greyhound.

Under the motto “Spanish greyhounds run to their death”, several International Marches were organized in Strasbourg, Madrid and Barcelona against the maltreatment of Spanish Greyhounds. Together with our greyhound Bertley, we attended the one in Barcelona and want to share these pictures with you. Look at those sweet faces. They are the lucky ones who had a second chance in life and got rescued and adopted to start a second professional career as couch potato. In Spain, each year around 50,000 of their fellow greyhounds face a very different fate, after a very short and miserable life, they are written of, tortured, abandoned or killed. It is time to stop this madness.

    Lovely pictures indeed! How can those heartless and brainless people hurt or event worse such wonderful creatures? I’ll never understand!!!
    It’s great to know that so many people (event from abroad, just like you and me) are supporting Galgos’ cause. It’s all a shame, a pity, and of course that must end right now. Let’s cross fingers and see what happens, I haven’t much faith in it, but I can’t help hoping that I will see the end of maltreatment and leave a better world to my sons.
    Very “greyhoundly” yours,
