Dogs for Sponsorship for Greyhounds in Need

The sponsorship scheme has been hugely successful and has helped this charity to continue to bring a few galgos into this country for adoption. When our UK supporters (who bring in the charity’s major funding) meet these lovely dogs and learn of their history, it stimulates interest and support for these poor Spanish bred greyhounds and enables us to expand our rescue and adoption work for them abroad which has always been on a very much larger scale than we can do here in the UK. The major part of GIN’s funds go to financing the rescue, rehabilitation and transport of Spanish galgos and greyhounds to safety and to homes with associations and sympathisers in Belgium, France, Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland and other countries of northern and central Europe. The UK sponsorship scheme is one of the catalysts that help raise the funds for this work.

Galgos for Sponsorship:

Viva, a fawn female galga, approx. 5 years old. She has a nice character, good with people and other dogs. She was handed in to the shelter by her owner. ADOPTED

Ela is a brindle female galga, approx. 6 ˝ years old. She is very timid. She has got used to the kennel staff and her tail wags when she sees them but with us she is still very wary. She needs a home where someone can spend time with her to help win her round and gain her trust. She would do better in a family with other dogs. The family who adopt her need to be patient with her and realise that for some time they may not be able to take her out for walks, she isn’t happy on the lead and will try to get away so she will need to get used to the home and garden and some lead walking around the garden to build her confidence

Gara, a lovely looking brindle and white female galga, approx. 6 ˝ years old. She is fine with people and other dogs. She was rescued from the streets by the shelter in Almendralejo. ADOPTED



Freya, a dark brindle female galga, approx. 3 ˝ years old. She has a nice character. She is alright with people and other dogs. ADOPTED



Sibella, a light brindle female galga, approx. 6 ˝ years old. She was handed in to the shelter. She is a quiet dog and gets on well with people and other dogs. ADOPTED

Tobi, a lovely looking longer haired male galgo. He has a nice character and is good with people and other dogs. He was handed into the shelter. He is approx. 7 ˝ years old. ADOPTED

Shiva is a young female galga, approx.1 ˝ years old. She has some white markings on her chest, tail and paws. She was handed in to the RECAL shelter. She is a lovely looking dog and very friendly. She has got used to the kennel staff and us now and gets very excited when people visit. She loves to run around the paddock area and we have tried to take videos of her but she is too quick ! She will fetch a toy or ball when we throw it, she never quite brings it back to you but with some training she probably will. She needs a home where she will have company and where people are around to spend time with her and get her into a routine. She is young and playful and wants to please, she will take time to settle but will make a lovely pet. 


Sorti, a black female galga, approx. 6 ˝ years old. She is very timid and will take time to gain her trust with people. She is alright with other dogs. ADOPTED
