Ever since I became involved with publicising about the plight of the galgos and podencos, I've highlighted the problems for the podencos of the Canary Islands, where they suffer horrendous cruelty at the hands of the hunters, and their only hope of a life after rescue is on mainland Europe or across the Atlantic. Fuerteventura is one of the smaller lesser known Islands so this is good news for one podenca from there.
Helpers of the Pods of Gran Canaria report the good news for one podenca from there.
'A home has been found for our KENIA and she will now travel on the 19th of June (last large dog space on the happy bus...phew)after our amazing rescuer Africa Sarabia Cabrera will have brought her by plane to the mainland from Fuerteventura. We only just made the arrangements in time by the skin of our teeth, saving Kenia having to wait to join her new family until September. It's a race against time to get the paperwork done in time. So much red tape you could decorate a room with it.
Now we have some money in the kitty for Kenia but we're not quiet there yet. So CAN WE DO IT??? CAN WE PULL THAT RABBIT OUT OF THE HAT ONCE MORE? We've been known to perform magic so will we do it again? Let's get our next dog home!
