‘Lance’ – Brindle Greyhound ……………….

 

This gorgeous boy is ‘Lance’ who has the most fantastic temperament – a real big softy, and for the past 4 years he has shared his life with 3 cats, 2 birds, and a baby who is now 5 years old.

 

Due to a marriage break up, and the ex-husband being out at work all day, and the ex-wife’s land-lord not permitting dogs – ‘Lance’ is desperately looking for either a foster home or permanent home.

 

He was rescued by us when he was 5 years old – a sad, thin, unwanted ex-racer, kept mostly out in a garden after being off loaded (on at least two accounts) to a ‘new owner’, who then didn’t have time for him.

 

This 9 year old gentle laid back boy, who thought he had found his forever home, is in need again, due to him losing his family…………….

 

Please contact Action for Greyhounds as above DIRECT – if you can offer a foster home or permanent home to ‘Lance’, who needs to be fostered/homed in the Norfolk/Suffolk area.

 

Thank you.

Estimados S. res

 

comunicamos nuestro apoyo en contra de la recurrente vulneración de la Ley 5-2002, de 23 de Mayo, de Protección de los Animales en la Comunidad Autónoma de Extremadura, durante la celebración del Festival del Pero Palo en la localidad de Villanueva de la Vera, provincia de Cáceres, celebración que este año se organizará el martes 24 de febrero.

 

En esta fiesta popular un burro es sacado a las calles del pueblo, donde es montado por un jinete totalmente borracho y arrastrado por la multitud en un recorrido por las calles de la localidad por un espacio temporal superior a una hora, acompañado por el estruendo de los disparos de escopetas y la fanfarria de los cencerros, sufriendo numerosas caídas a lo largo del recorrido. Para agravar la situación, en casi todas las ediciones, el jinete muerde las orejas del asno, causándole un tremendo dolor que se añade al sufrimiento que el animal padece debido al desarrollo bárbaro y cruel de este festejo.

 

Queremos que acabe el uso de animales vivos en esta y en las otras fiestas que utilizan animales en la provincia de Cáceres, y por eso apoyamos a los activistas animalistas que serán presentes, que nos enviarán una relación inherente el respeto de la Ley de Protección de Animales.

 

Así mismo, le invitamos a ver el video de denuncia publicado en Internet para que pueda Vd. comprobar por sí mismo la veracidad de todo lo anteriormente expuesto.

Translation of the letter : 

With this letter we sustain the protest against the continuously missed respect of the law 5 of May 23 2002 of protection of the animals in the autonomous community of Extremadura, during the celebration of the celebration of the Pero Palo in the village of Villanueva de la Vera in the province of Caceres, which this year will be held on Tuesday February 24th 2009.

In this popular party a donkey is brought among the streets of the village, where it is ridden by a completely drunk youngster and incited by the people in a course of about one hour, accompanied by shots, noise of cowbell and falling numerous times.
