How you can help us to help the Galgos
There are many ways in which you can either help the Galgos or help us to help the Galgos.
Firstly an adoption is the biggest gift of life you can offer. It gives a new life in stability and love which is forever. Also fostering – if you prefer to be a bridge for the Galgos until they reach their forevers.
Financial help is amazing, it gives us respite in our concerns which are daily, outstanding vet bills which soar, help to buy good food, this is primary for the first thing which enters into a Galgo should be good food. We have many economic pressures in the rescue of Galgos, many come in wounded, injured and need help. Economic help allows us to continue paying for their care and attention. Without kind help, we can no longer continue.
Publicity – if you work in public relations, this gives us the chance to promote the work which we do and share the plight of the Galgos with many, many who still are unaware of this abusive and distressing problem in Spain. Interviews such as radio, television and newspaper articles are great opportunities for the Galgos.
Word of mouth – this is powerful for it’s here that if you tell many a person all about the plight and just how gentle a Galgo is, it invites change. While you may be unable to adopt, someone you are telling may!
Sewing coats – Galgos feel the cold. If you sew then we would love to hear from you.
Sponsor a stable
The association does not yet have its own shelter and the rescued hounds reside in specially adapted large stables to ensure they receive the best care whilst they are nurtured back to health, their broken souls are healed and they are prepared for adoption, with microchips, vaccinations, sterilisation and blood tests.
The 112carlotagalgos stables are warm and cosy, where each galgo/podenco has its own bed, blankets, and jackets on for the colder days and nights. However, they also love to snuggle too – snuggling up in pairs and even three in a bed at times! Each dog is walked at least twice daily and there is room for play in the stables as they mix socially.
There is also an isolation stable where a new hound will spend a couple of days whilst they are tested and their health evaluated, before they are introduced to ‘the gang’.
Why not Sponsor a Stable with 112carlotagalgos – the perfect gift. You can donate any amount from 5 euros/month to 100€ towards the cost of the stable rent and in exchange you will receive regular news about the inmates of the stable and follow their progress till they find their forever families.
If you can collect blankets, bowls, beds, kennels, please write to us we would love to hear from you.
Fundraisers, we would be very grateful for help in this area also.
Any fresh ideas, we are always grateful for.
We need help to help the Galgos, and the Galgos need you!

112 Carlota Galgos is a nonprofit association which works for the protection of the Spanish greyhound, the galgo. We rescue, heal and look for adoptions for galgos in need.
Galgos are used to hunt hares in Spain, and when it is not the hunting season, many wander the streets abandoned. Left to their own luck, galgos have been hanged, dropped in rubbish bins and wells, burnt. Anything to rid the trace of having had a galgo.
Unless the animals are in the hands of an association, they are doomed from birth. From birth they will be picked out good or bad. From two months, hunters will be training them. From one litter often only one may make a hunting dog. Overbreeding leads to mass abandonment of galgos. The number of abandoned dogs reaches way over 50,000.
112 Carlota Galgos was founded in 2006 when I started to publish about the plight of the galgos. Later on we became an association which rescues as many galgos as possible, caring for them on a personal basis and socializing traumatized cases in order to be adopted.
One goal burning inside me is to create an educational center where children will benefit from the love of the galgo, to learn about responsibility and animal welfare.
Along the way we rescue some of the most abused galgos, and rehabilitate them both mentally and physically. Its a process and takes time, until ready homes are found.
Our estate is small, but peaceful. We work as a small team, as a family, with some special helpers. There’s a certain magic about our estate that oozes love. Soul and an ambiance of positivity. In this, I vow to do all I can for this special breed of dog: The Galgos Español!
112 Carlota Galgos is a nonprofit association. The only way for us to continue our work is for kind people to join us… The galgos need you, we need you. Love and soul is by the handful here, empathy and understanding creates change. We can’t do it alone.
