The commitment

Adopting a galgo is a wonderful, rewarding experience, but the decision must be informed, pre-meditated and committed.

A galgo is not a toy. They live for many years and you must commit yourself to caring for the animal for the rest of its life.

You also need to bear in mind that owning a galgo has financial implications and you will need to dedicate sufficient time to walking and interacting with him or her.

If you decide to adopt or foster a galgo, you can count on our support.

We carry out a preliminary interview and assessment, providing continued support to the adopter during the pre-adoption period and helping resolve any adaptation or behaviour problems that may arise.


THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE ADOPTING:

• You will need to find a suitable alternative for your galgo when you
   go on holiday, either taking him with you and staying in dog-friendly
   accommodation or placing him with a friend or in kennels.

• Food, veterinary care and accessories all cost money.

• You will need to dedicate time every day to walking and interacting
   with your galgo.

• Your garden should have a two metre high fence.

• Your home and/or garden may suffer some damage.
