The life of the galgo is grim at best. These beautiful dogs suffer needlessly at the hands of their keepers and are often killed in gruesome, inhumane ways. These abuses have been well documented but are far too horrific to share on this website. The following webpages detail the horrific conditions these dogs are kept in and the cruel methods used to kill them. These sites may contain very disturbing images on some of their pages so we recommend proceeding with caution. Most will give a warning.
Dedicated to the welfare of the Spanish Galgo and Sighthounds worldwide.
The Galgo Rescue International Network (GRIN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization run entirely by volunteers that was founded to establish a relationship between the animal shelters in Spain and animal lovers in the United States and around the world. Our love of Greyhounds and concern for their plight drew us to their cousins — the galgos.
Working closely with Spanish shelters, GRIN raises awareness of the Spanish Greyhound's plight through international educational campaigns and fundraising. We also aid shelters and assist with adoptions for rehomed sighthounds in the U.S. with the primary goals being to provide practical help and supplies to the Spanish shelters and to inspire change in the treatment of the Galgo Espnaõl and the Podenco through public informational and educational campaigns.
