There are no regulations in Spain to which refuges and shelters have to adhere. Some are a living hell for dogs and cats which have already suffered from maltreatment and abuse. This is a 'coral' in Cordoba where dogs including podencos are starving to death through lack of food and water. When dogs get to this stage, they will even attack and eat each other. There is evidence of this here. El Arca de Noe Cordoba complained about the situation, and the authorities removed the dogs to the local pound. Death awaits them, from lethal injection if they haven't already succumbed to infection and illness before them.
