Dogs for Sponsorship for Greyhounds in Need

The sponsorship scheme has been hugely successful and has helped this charity to continue to bring a few galgos into this country for adoption. When our UK supporters (who bring in the charity’s major funding) meet these lovely dogs and learn of their history, it stimulates interest and support for these poor Spanish bred greyhounds and enables us to expand our rescue and adoption work for them abroad which has always been on a very much larger scale than we can do here in the UK. The major part of GIN’s funds go to financing the rescue, rehabilitation and transport of Spanish galgos and greyhounds to safety and to homes with associations and sympathisers in Belgium, France, Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland and other countries of northern and central Europe. The UK sponsorship scheme is one of the catalysts that help raise the funds for this work.

Galgos for Sponsorship:

We are currently finalising our next group of galgos for homing in the UK and their photos and details will be on our website soon.

Can you offer a home to Sofia or Allegro? (Allegro is now ADOPTED)

We have taken in two Greyhound crosses from Romania and are looking for homes for them. They came to the UK a few months ago and are at kennels near to our office.

They look very alike as they have the same markings. We initially thought it would be nice to home them together but feel now, as we’ve got to know them a bit more, that they can be homed separately.

Sofia is approx. 1 year old, very lively and always wants to play! She was found on the streets in Romania. She walks quite well on the lead - always looking around at everything. She needs a home where someone can spend tine with her and take her for nice walks to use up some of her energy.

Allegro is a lovely dog, not too big. His passport says he is 2 years old but he seems a bit older, maybe 4 years old. He walks quite well on a lead and loves to lean on you as you walk along.

If you feel you can offer a home to Sofia or Allegro please call us on 01784 483206 or email
