Podenca Fern was abandoned in the campo by a British guy and taken to Pepis Dog Refuge. After months of waiting she was taken to the UK and homed. She's now doing agility training and this weekend won her first clear round rosette. Wonderful!
Kaylee is Dog of the Month May...she's a podenco x and really would love a forever home. Have a look at her and contact Jane Brian if you have room in your home and heart for Kaylee.
Associació animalista de les Illes Balears - we have rescued 23 podencos and are 36 are with Can Dog Ibiza. 23 podencos are now in Mallorca with Olga from Amics dels animals d'Esporles, with Laura from Rescate Animal, with Victoria from Pro animales de Mallorca and with Helga from Arca de Noé in Andratx.
This is Podenco Max, he was born in 2004. He was rescued last weekend (22/23 April 2017) in Mazarron, Murcia, by the Scooby team, along with a couple of dozen more podencos and galgos, including puppies. He deserves somewhere to spend his twilight years - he's lucky to have survived to this age in the hands of a galguero! If you have a comfy bed for him, contact Scooby.
With hundreds of animals in the refuges, Scooby is also running this appeal.
'Some important things to treat our animals are starting to scarce... Like Amoxicillin + Clavulanic Tablets, Meloxicam Injection, Doxycycline Tablets and Syrup, Metronidazole Tablets and Syrup (Flagyl) and very urgently is needed IMMITICIDE. We also need shavers, field cloths, 6 + 1/2 sterile gloves, blue pathways (small) , oxygenated water and internal deworming ... If you have some of these items and you would like to donate them to us, we will be deeply grateful.
What a difference love and food can make to a terrified starving podenco puppy. Little Saffra rescued 23 days ago and now she is looking so much better, has gained weight, her coat is getting a shine, she is negative for med diseases, a real sweetheart and ready to search for her forever sofa.
From a terrified puppy found all alone wondering where her next meal would come from sleeping out in the cold. With some tender loving care and good food, she is so much happier sometimes that is all it takes.
Regular readers will know that I have been appealing for help for the Canary Island podencos since I first created my blogs back in 2007. A prohibitive factor in the adoption of Podenco Canarios is the cost of flights to mainland Europe for forever homes. In the past three or four years there has been an explosion of publicity for these fabulous hounds, largely due to facebook pages. I'd like to introduce another Lanzarote group who are helping hounds in the Teguise area. Huella y Huella - footprints.
'Huella a Huella is a group which raises awareness, sensitization and well-being in general to the animals in Lanzarote from schools to those working in the field of animal protection and promotion of awareness-raising actions.
So we want to create a set of which all form part, institutions, associations and citizens, and together, bring this great project to term.
Apologies from Jane at Pepis Dog Refuge for not posting much this week but as you will see it's been a tough one. Probably one of the worst yet. Anyone following this page will of seen Kiora, the Galga that was recently dumped and shortly after died of an unknown illness. Well sadly, the illness is still unknown and it's rampaging it's way through the refuge. We currently have 3 dogs at the vets, 2 in the refuge hospital on drips and several more showing signs of coming down with it. We are praying at the moment they will all survive it.
Regardless, this is going to result in a MASSIVE vet bill. We obviously can't quote it yet as at the moment we have no idea how many more are going to need treatment. If you can donate ANY amount it would be a great help.

Sadly Jane has reported today that galga Faith has died.
Just look at this beautiful rough-haired podenca, a recent arrival at Pepis Dog Refuge. She sounds an absolute sweetie and would love to have a forever home. Please get in touch with Pepis if you can help her.
She's not the only podenca at Pepis, here are some more - little Vinny, only a young boy, and some handsome podenco cross too. And what about Bill and Ben, podenco/basenji cross. They have lost hope of finding a home and a hearth.
If you can't adopt a dog, what about sponsoring one. Have a look at this page for the dogs needing sponsorship.
Galgos France working with two British podenco rescue associations. News from GF website.
17/2/2017 Two of our protégés came out last week from the hell of the Canary pound: Bryonny and Rosetta are in a pension in Tenerife while waiting to leave for Irene in Alicante (Hope for Podencos) who will take care of them and arrange supplementary tests while awaiting adopters.
They will join Tianna who will soon leave with host family in the United Kingdom and Erica.
So there are 6 podencos sponsored by Galgos France that are still impounded. Penelope, Sweets, Spinet, Smiley, Lottie and Nancy .... Hopefully they survive until their release ...
