L'Europe des Levriers is the French association from whom I adopted my galgas and with whom I have also travelled to Spain to help with rescues. At the beginning of October (when I was in the UK and unable to help) a team travelled to Spain to bring back 30 galgos and podencos from the perrera at Albacete. Most of the dogs had been there for over a year. And you will be impressed by the excellent conditions at this particular perrera, would that all of them achieved this standard.
Beatrice, President of the association, tells the tale, and you can see a film of the rescue here.
'Alarmed by the incessant fighting of male dogs who were missing space in the crowded perrera of Albacete, EDL has decided to take out ALL galgos and podencos from there. 30 dogs (50% of them Podencos) were brought to France at the beginning of October, to host families. These pictures do not reflect the expression and beauty: Yuma, Sira, Yiyo, Chicote, Queco, Anko, Nevo, Zuzo, Kronos, Claudia, Aysha, Violetta, Belinda, Tiva, Gala, Mano for galgos! Half of them have already been adopted.
