Intense work throughout Spain

With our strong commitment to fighting in defence of galgos, at SOS Galgos, we carry out intense rescue work throughout Spain, where every year thousands of galgos are mistreated and abandoned as hunting waste.

We help hundreds of galgos in need every year. To come to their aid as quickly as possible, we have a permanent point of contact with volunteers in most Spanish provinces. Many of these galgos are in deplorable conditions after having been living in the street. They are malnourished, dehydrated and often injured.

The dogs we collect stay temporarily in kennels or fosters homes. The foster homes are fundamental to the work of SOS Galgos. Without them, it would not be possible to rescue so many galgos.

Careful in the transfer

From our operations center in Esplugues, Barcelona, we meticulously prepare all the logistics of the transfer process.

We ensure the maximum of comfort of a galgo when it undertakes a journey, we use a transfer company which specialises in the transfer of animals. Our galgos travel in large carriers and are tucked in with blankets to keep them warm.

Upon arrival, the galgo is given a veterinary check-up and is offered all the care it requires for its recovery.
