Please excuse the grammar etc in this post but I wanted to let you see the latest news about the 57 podencos and a couple of galgos rescued from a hellhole in Valencia.
The Civil Guard released 57 dogs crammed into a field House
The Association which relies on donations is responsible, citizens help to their rescue, the State is LAVA LAS MANOS, Justice leaves free the person in charge of the situation
Victims and homeless citizens 100% the mark Spain!!
The owner of the dogs, neighbor of the Font d' in cars (Valencia) raised animals and sold them
The animals had scabies, injuries and wounds, strangulation of chains
The owner is not being held because damages are not constitutive of offense (What?! Not an offence?!)
Local police and the Civil Guard found last Saturday in the municipality of La Font d' in trucks, eight kilometres from Gandia (Valencia), a field House where they stayed crammed 55 podencos, and 2 dogs in a very bad state of health. According to sources of the consistory, the owner of animals was a neighbor of the people who used to raise them to sell and had neglected the hygiene and the feeding of the animals. The 112 greyhounds protective care of dogs being made on a temporary basis.
"Malnourished, with fleas, tick, many with ulcers could not get up ..."
This is how they found the animals: frightened and trembling, crammed in a cell of only 15 square meters. No food or drink and surrounded by feces. Total Sergio Puche - Galgos112 "malnourished, with fleas, tick, many with ulcers ... unable to get tied down with chains and walls, the maximum would have about 20 cm long"
An anonymous tip has led to their release . The agents inspected this field house accompanied by own master, a man of the people who are engaged in breeding hounds and then sell, until the crisis hit its business. Total Sergio Puche - Galgos112 "the owner said the dogs were well behaved, caring even the children like"
The owner of the animals has brought an administrative penalty, the damage suffered by dogs are not considered crime.
Total Sergio Puche - Galgos112 "laws regarding animal abuse in Spain leave much to be desear.Perros that are tied all his holy life, no food, no water, no ventilation. If that is not animal cruelty ... The protectora Galgos 112 has distributed the dogs in shelters, waiting for them to recover for adoption. going to sue the owner for the hell that has made these animals live.
