Maybe you read the news on the Scooby blog or maybe you don´t, but the histories about the trips Scooby makes to save galgos is every time a different one, it´s not that we repeat the same rescues every time. Therefore I put them here again and it's from January until 23 February, so the rescues from December and before are not included:
Not about podencos but an example of the incredible work done by DeAnimals firm of lawyers in Murcia. And why they need funding and sponsorship to fight more cases and run more courses to educate lawyers, judges, police, Seprona and volunteers on how to prosecute cases of maltreatment of animals. Please sponsor them through ACTIN here. If donating through Paypal, please go through family and friends and mark Donation to DeAnimals
(Poster by Bev Farmer, Podenco Friends.) A message to all the galgueros and cazadores. May you suffer as you make your hounds suffer.
At first I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights
thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
Marchers in over 14 cities in Spain peacefully protested against the maltreatment and hunting with galgos, podencos, pointers and other hounds and the cruelty inflicted on them by the sub-species who handle them. In Mardrid there were over 2,000 marching. Here's a video of the event. And remember, it's the Spanish marching against the Spanish hunters.
You may remember back in February 2016 there was an appeal to help 78 podencos on Tenerife. Here is the news - best of all, all the dogs are clear of the filaria (heartworm). Final result PROJECT TIERRA BLANCA FILARIA FREE nearly 8,000€ worth in heartworm treatments received, thanks! Amazing!
'So many things have happened since we started this wonderful project. Thanks to Podencoworld and dozens of supporters who donated the cost of the treatment for all these podencos.
We received the 78 filaria treatments that were needed and managed to have some extra treatments for the future as thanks to an auction carried out by volunteers of Podencoworld it was possible to create a piggy bank which we have already been using for new filaria positive arrivals.
When I was at the PAES conference in Murcia in October 2015, I met some lovely ladies from the Axarquia Animal Shelter in Malaga. They have several podencos amongst the dozens of hounds they have in their care. Please get in touch with them direct if you can offer a place in your home and heart for one of them.

Lola is another Podenca on Lanzarote. This beautiful girl has come on in leaps and bounds! She had a lucky escape after being taken away from the same owner as Angelique. She has made incredible progress and is looking absolutely stunning. Probably experiencing the warmth of a loving home for the first time in her life thank you to her new family!
