Huesca is a small city in north eastern Spain, in the province of Aragon. It's not a province with galgo hunting, rather hunting with podencos. If you don't know the podenco breed, then read all about them, and the different types, on Podenco Post.
Like the galgos, podencos are not a breed which are often adopted by the Spanish but, also like the galgos, they make fabulous companion dogs. There are dozens of them in the Perrera of Huesca, waiting to find out what life has in store for them. The photos are on Facebook, for those of you who use Facebook The person to contact at the perrera is the vet, [email protected]and the person you have to talk to if you want to know something about the dogs and if you want to reserve any. There are a lot of podencos there who need help. Here are somebetween 6 - 12 months old.
Appeal just in. Sorry, no pix at the moment. Have just been contacted by Rosemary who has come across 4 podencos that will be destroyed over the weekend. There are 2 male and 2 females about 3 years old. Females are spayed. Police have put a denucia on the hunter and the dogs will be put down if we cannot fine foster homes for them. Anyone who can help please contact Rosemary on 9Spain) 962922234
Happy Ending Final-Feliz in Chiclana, Cadiz, have had their problems in the past, with authorities being awkward! All the charity want to do is help the abandoned dogs in the area, get them off the streets, look after them, rehome them. Something the authorities should do.
Now, on 18th February, there's this news from the association. And it's not the first time I received a report of Seprona putting pressure on the people doing their job!
'PLEASE SHARE THIS POST! WE NEEDYOUR HELP! It has been an eventful week down at the kennels. We have had a visit from Seprona (Servicio de Protección de la Naturaleza - OR - Nature Protection Services). They have informed us that, unknown to us we are not complying with certain regulations laid down by the authorities.
Do you remember Aradio, a cute Podenco Andaluz. Here's his story. He's in a foster home but circumstances have changed and he needs somewhere else to go. Can anyone offer him foster or, preferably a forever home? Contact email details on the original post, or contact me for an English translator.
