SAV Comment – we often attack Spain because of its continued stance re bullfighting; but here for once we have some very good news for education about animal suffering – credit where it is due !
Learn more about the terrible situation of, and the annual abuses to the innocent, mild natured Galgos, by watching the video here –
SPCA International and SOS Galgos are proud to announce that ground has been broken on a humane education center in Esplugues, Spain, dedicated to the plight of Spanish Greyhounds.
This center is the first of its kind anywhere in the world. SOS Galgos has been working tirelessly for four years to secure the land, find an appropriate and affordable structure and obtain funding.
In 2016, SPCAI pledged a $40,000 grant over two years to the project – helping SOS Galgos greenlight the next steps. Together, SPCAI and SOS Galgos will continue to work to end the suffering of these beautiful, gentle animals.
Community education will ensure that future generations have compassion and empathy toward animals and understand why the tradition of hare coursing with galgo and podenco are inhumane. Together we are making our world a better place.
