Spanish rescue dogs

Dog Watch UK Spanish rescue dogsEvery year in Spain, thousands of hunting dogs (Galgos and Podencos) are abandoned, abused, or even killed in horrific circumstances. The absence of laws regulating the breeding of these dogs, and the poor enforcement of animal welfare laws, means that at the end of hunting season thousands of ‘excess’ dogs are ‘disposed’ of by their owner. There are rescues in Spain fighting these massive odds to save as many dogs as they can. Unfortunately these dogs have very little chance of getting a new home in Spain.
