This is the story of BELLA.

She was found this week in a terrible condition. She has Leishmania, is terribly malnourished, has infected wounds, is covered in ticks and so has a tick disease, mange and anemia, and to top it all has been hit by a car causing the large wounds 😦

BELLA is around 6 years old and has obviously led a terrible life. Initially it was thought she should be put to sleep, but the carers thought that she was such a loving dog and has such a will to live that she should be given the chance to recover and live the life she deserves, if only for a short while.

BELLA is a sweet and calm girl and coexists without problems with dogs, cats and people. She is not scared, in spite of everything she is very glad to be saved, and is sympathetic and sociable.

We are looking for an URGENT foster home for BELLA so that she doesnt have to remain in the kennels whilst she recovers, and of course ultimately a permanent home for this beautiful girl.

We also desperately need donations to help pay for her veterinary treatment for all the health problems that she is facing.

Please paypal any donations to pro-galgo@total-barcelona.com

or see the “how to help” page if you want to send a cheque.

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.

With such a large number of dogs needing rescue at one time we desperately need funds to be able to vaccinate and transport them to the shelter, which will cost around 50 Euros for each dog.

If you would like to help us rescue these dogs you can donate by paypal at pro-galgo@total-barcelona.com or see the “how to help” page.
