September - October transportations

During the summer months the transports from Spain decrease due to the hot weather. The work continues in Spain as the shelters have to care for the dogs and get them ready for the transports. Also the adoption groups continue their work of finding lovely homes for them.

Sixty six galgos left the Arca de Noe shelter in the last two months. Twenty galgos travelled to France to homes found by CREL (Club de Reconnaissance et d'Entraide aux Lévriers).

Thirty six galgos left Albacete for homes in Italy, along with 4 galgos from ADANA in Badajoz.

At home with a blind lurcher, a greyhound and four galgos!

Arthur my blind lurcher was the first to join us. He had been ‘retired’ at the age of 7 from being a working dog and his owner was seeking a comfy seat for this gentle lad. What a joy he is, easy going, fits in with all the other hounds and despite his blindness he copes remarkably well with day to day life and out on his walks.
