It's not often I find stories about podencos or galgos in Galicia in northern Spain but I've just come across this small protectora of 2 ladies who work with the local animal kennels to try and home the poor lost souls who end up behind bars. Please read their story here.
'Behind Arume we are two women who have been rescuing animals for many years. Looking the other way doesn't suit us, and little by little we became entangled in this wonderful, but also hard, adventure that is to dedicate your life to animals.
We carry out our work in O Carballiño, helping to find families for the animals that arrive at the kennel, to prevent their stay in it from being extended. We are volunteers, that is to say, we are not labor related to the kennel, but we work with the officials who manage it to prioritize the most urgent cases (puppies, grandparents...) and expedite their departure, without forgetting all the others: young people and adults who many times they become invisible, and we try to make them visible through our social networks to find them a home as soon as possible.'
Shortly there will follow the story of Truan, a podenco they have been trying to home for a year.
