There is an ABSOLUTE NEED to highlight the plight of galgos (Spanish hunting greyhounds) in Spain.
GALGOS DEL SOL (MURCIA) MAKES SAVING GALGOS IN SPAIN A REALITY!
This blog is to help the refuge, Galgos Del Sol in Murcia, Costa Blanca.

Galgos del Sol is dedicated to every galgo espanol; those who made it and sadly those who didn’t.
They are a registered rescue based in Murcia, Spain that rescues abandoned and injured galgos (Spanish hunting greyhounds), rehabilitates them and finds them forever homes in the UK and other parts of Europe.
Thousands of galgos are abandoned or killed annually at the end of each short hunting season and as they are not always viewed as potential pets in Spain, they usually end up in perreras (pounds), where their lives are ended, often not in ways we would consider humane.
Galgos del Sol is entirely dependent on fundraising for its survival and is run by a dedicated woman, Tina, assisted by a group of dedicated volunteers based in various countries.
