I’m participating in Blog the Change for Animals. Bloggers are invited to write about a cause near and dear to their hearts, so I decided to write about an organization I follow that works tirelessly on behalf of animals, particularly Galgos. The organization is Galgos Del Sol.
Here’s a little information…”The Galgo Español or Spanish Greyhound is an ancient breed and a member of the sighthound family. Despite being called a ‘greyhound,” the Spanish Galgo is not closely related to the English or Irish Greyhound, the lineage of the two breeds being different. Bred solely for hunting, thousands of Galgos are abandoned or killed annually at the end of each short season. Galgos are not typically considered as pet worthy in Spain and their lives end in less than humane ways either in perreras (kill stations) or abandoned to a life of persecution on the streets.”
Galgo Del Sol is working not only to rescue animals but also to change hearts and minds. They are on the frontlines and I admire all the work they do to make the world a more humane place.
