|EMERGENCY FB ONLINE AUCTION TO HELP RESCUE THESE GALGOS|
|When Galgos del Sol put on the photos of the distressing case of over 70 galgos all in worrying conditions some were sad, some were angry and some just got plain busy. Yep, we are talking about Wayne de Greyhound, Chai Huggablehound and Sherry Van Dyke all from the USA & supporters of GRIN. Whilst we were running around like lunatics these three amazing people (sorry one amazing person and two amazing greyhounds as the mums did nuffin) literally knocked up out of no-where an emergency online auction on Facebook. Obviously when we are picking up large numbers of dogs in one go we are concerned about the financial implications as each dog costs a minimum of 250 euros plus the kennelling, food, transport and treatment for the ill ones who need further care. Knowing that this was going on in the background definitely eased some worries & gave us the confidence to just go for it. So as you know I had to zip to the USA with two dogs and over there was lucky enough to meet Sherry herself. A beautiful women with a bulging heart just bursting for the galgos. She came running into the room after speaking to Chai Huggablehoundhound and said "oh my god, we might hit $4000" and with that she slumped into her chair in disbelief. On a personal note it has lifted my spirits my confidence and given me a lift to know that so many people support Galgos del Sol and believe in us that we can together as a team can make a difference, yes you, YES YOU and us, a team. Thanks to those who donated items and to those who placed bids. Total raised $ 4,269.14 USD . Jeepers creepers this is simply amazing. From us and the galgos we have rescued and the galgos that are waiting.... GRASSY ARSE AMIGOS. BESOS MUY GRANDES. You are friggin awesome!|
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.
