In defence of the galgo
SOS Galgos exists to protect and defend hunting dogs from neglect, abuse, cruelty and all forms of mistreatment. As a charitable non-profit organization, SOS Galgos seeks to achieve its goals through educational programmes for children in schools and colleges, combating loneliness in nursing and retirement homes, and organizing social campaigns to raise funds to help unwanted greyhounds.
SOS Galgos believes that no healthy animal should be slaughtered, and that all dogs must be protected, loved, and properly adopted for life and cared for by responsible owners. Every day there are more dogs waiting for adoption. Many of them are greyhounds. The abandonment of these animals is an ongoing problem that we continue to fight with limited funding and in a market saturated with other charities.
