Last week we had a very urgent call to help 14 Galgos in the Cordoba pound, ALL were due to be killed if they were not saved within 10 days.

We thankfully have managed to find a safe place to house them. They are all currently being tested for disease and will shortly be vaccinated before being moved to safety.
