WE THOUGHT THIS PICTURE WOULD GET YOUR ATTENTION!
Yes they are adorable and now that you are reading this we want to update you on some good news. We want to thank all our faithful supporters that have enabled G.R.I.N. to make a difference to several associations since January 2012, thus making a big difference in the lives of many Galgos and Podencos!
In the last three months G.R.I.N. has distributed help to 7 shelters in the form of our Shelter Aid Donations as well as 2 EAF (Emergency Assistance Funds) grants to extra needy cases. We are excited to share the news that many galgos from different kill stations have been helped directly to be released into these associations and are now safe and some have already been homed! We also have shipped 13 boxes of coats, collars and leashes to many shelters thanks to your support. The shelters were very greatful for the coats as it has been an exceptionally cold winter.
The following email came from Char del Rio of 112Carlotagalgos and we thought we would like to share with you what your support means to our Spanish friends. Her sentiments are repeated by many of our shelter friends..
Dear GRIN supporters, without your help, support, and hard work I know so well that so many a galgo, & Podenco just wouldnt feel help, a warm bed, a vets care, a coat on, even a collar for the first time, since many just go round tied up from bailer twine. There are so many times when we all hold our breaths in desperation, hold our head in our hands in prayer, as I am sure, you all do also, for as much as we have the stress of the rescues and survival here, you all work so desperately and tirelessy hard for our sakes, for the dogs sakes. So I know that you also feel these days of wonder.
Your kind donation will go towards rent fee, sterilising Polyana and her preparation, and food for the group we have in care.
So from me, my only words to find of thanks are that I feel a warmth from GRIN, in an understanding of what we go through. Unconditional support for the Spanish galgo and Podencos, no matter what,- GRIN's presence is there. Here, alive in Spain and pushing forward in the plight of the galgo and helping those, me, who need help.
Having been into the schools, and pushing forward in this passion, the desire to educate and show the young a better way, I feel its here change will take place.
I see the hard work GRIN does, I know it musnt be easy supporting all those you do, but I can absolutely assure you, this saves lives, changes lives, allows us to beable to take in, move on, operate on, care for and heal as many as we can. Its my hope we create the educational centre and we will see change all of us together.
My deepest most heart felt thanks, what a surprise today to open my email and see your donation, a lift, a gasp in amazement this morning..of all days as well its my 17th wedding anniversary! GRIN gives hope, and answers prayers.
Thankyou so very very much, In so much galgo affection, and thanks.
