Visit to GACI
Once again I
have had the pleasure and privilege of attending GACI’s
“Raduno” in Modena. This time my wife Angela, who is a
keen activist in many fields of animal welfare, came with
wonderful weather and the usual great hospitality and
enthusiasm of our Italian friends and colleagues. GACI
continues to receive and re-home large numbers of our galgos
and Irish greyhounds sponsored by GIN.
As always it
was a great thrill for us to see about 200 lovely dogs, with
their devoted owners, showing off their paces in the show
ring but, more often than not, sleeping in the sun!
As well as
meeting with our Italian friends, I was able to have useful
conversations with our Spanish colleagues from Arca de Noe
in Albacete and from ADANA in Badajoz, who were also
attending the Raduno.
One of the
highlights of occasions like this is for us to see the
fruits of our labours and the amazing benefits brought to
these much-abused dogs by the generosity of our supporters.
There is no
doubt that GIN is held in high regard in Italy and I was
much cheered by several owners who thanked me for GIN having
enabled them to adopt such wonderful pets.
We must all be
grateful to GACI for their huge and successful efforts to
give so many abandoned galgos and greyhounds their forever

We were very
pleased that our Patron, Peter Egan, came along to meet the
new group of galgos last Wednesday. The weather was lovely
and the galgos were very good, coming out of their kennels
two at a time and were enjoying the English sunshine.
