Cervantes -- one of the Podencos who made the trip from Spain a couple years ago, from the KIMBA shelter in Cadiz -- was recently featured in the USA Today in an article regarding animals and prosthetic limbs. There are some really great photos of him, and his story is a really amazing one.
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.
