Torrox is on the Costa del Sol but not a place the tourists tend to visit, as it has apartment blocks rather than big hotels. But like most of the rest of Spain it too suffers from too much animal abandonment and that's where the Tail Torrox shelter comes in. Founded in 2008, they currently have plenty of podencos hoping for forever homes, on this page you can read all about them.
This tiny is Mona. Mona came in with her puppies. She is estimated to be born 14.2.2018 and weighs 8.6kg and 40cm in height. She is typical of the breed, shy but sweet and timid with strangers. She plays well with a mixed group of dogs. She has tested positive for leishmaniosis. If you are interested in offering a forever home, email email@example.com about her.
In 2015 Sandy and John Cortebeeck sold up in Belgium and moved to Almeria to open a kennels. As with all good intentions, for dog lovers in Spain, the mass abandonment of galgos and podencos takes over everyone's life. Thank goodness there are people willing to give up almost everything to help these amazing dogs, treated like rubbish by the sub-human Spanish galgueros.
'ADOPT A GRANNY! Granny podencas are like your favourite teddy bear as a child. Their fur was a bit thin from so much cuddling. But you never found a dearer friend.
Our friends at the refuge "La Sonrisa Peluda" near Malaga have a number of "Granny Podencas" who desperately need to get out of their shelter and into loving families. They vary from age 6 to older and have a variety of health conditions that are well controlled with medication but they need to be in the cleaner environment of a gentle and loving family home to really thrive and re-find some of their youthful joy that is still there in them.
Earlier this month Galgos Rescue Almeria, along with other rescues, were involved in taking to safety over 70 dogs living in terrible conditions in a shelter which the authorities closed down. These 3 podencos were among the dogs GRA took to their shelter.
'We picked up these 3 podencos in terrible condition and now a period of recovery and healing can begin for them, as well as the galgos we took too. They've been in an unimaginable filthy shelter for God knows how long and unsurprisingly they all have Anaplasma and Erlichia, fleas and ticks. Fortunately it can be treated but also can't be underestimated. Untreated it can also be deadly.
They've now had a shower, for one boy we need to visit a groomer because his coat is in bad shape. You can see flea infestation needs treating urgently too. Named Madroño, Artillero and Teddy.
Any help with vet fees will be gratefully received.
Chloe is a loving small/medium size Podenco girl of just 18 months. She loves a fuss and is a happy friendly character. She is energetic and would love an outdoors style household. She is attentive and sensitive and has lots to give so would be easy to train to make the perfect allrounder family dog. She gets on well with other dogs. If you can offer Chloe a permanent home, please message firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scooby Spanish Dog Rescue UK is the UK agent responsible for rehoming abandoned and often abused dogs from the Scooby Animal Shelter in Medina, northern Spain. We find suitable foster and permanent adoption homes throughout the UK and take care of all the stages from bringing your chosen Spanish rescue from the shelter to the UK.
Our aim is to help Scooby Medina rehome the excess of dogs that they protect to prevent them living the rest of their days in the shelter, sadly there is simply not enough demand at this present time to all be rehomed in Spain. Over time we hope this might change and our services will no longer be required. This can only be achieved by educating and raising awareness throughout the rural communities of Spain into understanding the importance of neutering and to eradicate needless neglect, cruelty and abandonment for good.
Holidays are a terrible time around the world for people dumping their dogs before they go on holiday. This is in Spain.
SEVILLA!!!! Holidays are here and we are full of dogs. They are all cheap excuses for heartless people who don't give a fuck about the animal. This poor wretch only 3 months old and his "family" threatens to take him to the perrera, at best, at worst he'll end up in a garden or in the ditch of a road. They don't pay travel or take him anywhere, imagine what the puppy cares.
