PRO-GALGO has been founded in 1999 by Mo Swatek, swiss sighthound lover who wanted to help after hearing about the hanging of the galgos. She persuaded her spanish husband to move to Spain to be able to work more efficient for the hounds. Her language skills made it possible to post the news about the hounds all over the world.
Our aim is not the simple rehoming of hounds all over europe. PRO-GALGO fights for a better future of the hounds in Spain by giving lectures in schools, kindergardens, universities, by writing articles about the galgos and their suffering, by giving speaches even for hunters if they let us.
In UK Elkie Lonnkvist founded with her friends PRO-GALGO UK and distributes the galgo-news in english
In France, the sighthoundlover and presidente of LE BULLETIN DE LEVRIERS & PRO-GALGO FRANCE is homing an amazing amount of spanish hounds and helps shelters and rescues with fundraising and donations of all kinds, such as medication, bedding, coats etc.
