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.
