In defense of the galgo
Every year in Spain, tens of thousands of galgos are hanged, thrown into wells and gutters as hunting waste.
At SOS Galgos, with our rescue, recovery and adoption efforts, we have given new lives to more than 3,000 galgos. But our work is also in the daily struggle to try to change society from the legal and educational field. With your help, we can give many more greyhounds a better future.

“The situation of abandonment and mistreatment of galgos in our country is a problem that hurts sensitive Spanish people and those of many neighboring countries and, therefore, also damages the image of Spain as a modern and fair country.”
Umberto Giacomelli, president of SOS Galgos
“Of the 3 million hunters registered in Spain, 200,000 are galgueros and the mentality is, at the end of the hunting season, when they no longer serve them, why have it? The solution is in education. You have to educate the next generations.”
Anna Clements, director & co-founder of SOS Galgos
“We organize the rescue and adoption of as many galgos as the donations of partners and supporters allow us, and we develop awareness actions to spread the goodness of the breed and to raise more additional funds for their help.”
Albert Sordé, vet & co-founder of SOS Galgos
