But hold on, wait, it isn't February yet, is it?
You are right, it isn't, but all over Spain we can see this day coming.
We can see it in the amount of rescues coming into the shelters that are already full to the rim.
We know since the ones coming in are either emaciated, severely abused or neglected.
So what is Dia del Galgo?

Besides the galgos that we at times have available for adoption in the US, it is also possible to check out the galgos that are still with the shelters in Spain that SAGE works with.

For those not knowing his story, here's a short recap.
I arrived at the Fundacion Benjamin Mehnert (FBM) shelter located near Dos Hermanas in Spain on 10/22/15. In less than 24 hours of my arrival, I was introduced to the galgo that you see below. He was abandoned on the roadside in extremely poor condition. His weight was only 14 kg (30.8 lbs). He was unable to stand on his own and had many open, deep wounds including a degloved right elbow. The staff gave him the name Kenzo. On Saturday, 10/24, Kenzo was located in the ho
During my visit to FBM, there were approximately 400-500 dogs at the facility. The majority of them are galgos. The following pics/descriptions are several lovely souls that I had the pleasure of helping out and hanging out with while I was there. This is Fantasia (pronounced Fan-ta-c-a). Despite her injury, she is such a sweetheart. Not sure how her left front leg ended up this way. She was brought into surgery on 10/30/15 to have a drain placed to help reduce the swellin
The day prior to my arrival at FBM, this beautiful galgo was injured in a horrible accident. The amazing staff received a call about this galgo being hit by a car and went to the accident site and brought her back to FBM. Amazingly, she did not have a single broken bone. They named her Shiva. Shiva was definitely shy and a bit tentative during the first few days while I was giving her medications and assisting with cleaning her wounds.
