first three months of this year around 87 greyhounds and
galgos have travelled to France, Italy and Slovenia to start
their new lives.
Elisa and her team at GACI have also received two transports of greyhounds from Ireland for homing.

We have also been able to fund 36 galgos for Tina and Galgos del Sol Murcia.
In March, Therese and her husband collected ten galgos from Pep’s kennels in Barcelona for homing in France by their group, Associacion Levriers Martyrs.
You can see the video of the transport here:
Catherine has been able to take many galgos over the years and has encouraged other groups in France to help. She also helps ex-racing greyhounds from England and we receive some lovely photos of them enjoying their new lives.
Catherine has also kindly transported the galgos we bring to the UK for homing and visited us last year to discuss our work and the situation regarding the greyhounds in Macau as the track was closing down.
There has been a lot of publicity about the Canidrome in Macau and what would happen to the greyhounds that were kept and raced there. Many individuals and groups got involved and many petitions were set up as well as appeals for help for these dogs.
The main groups involved in this rescue were ANIMA in Macau, Pet Levrieri, and Grey2kUSA. Catherine visited Macau twice to find out more about the situation and in February this year was able to receive fourteen ex-racing greyhounds.
We were able to offer funding to Levriers en Detresse towards their costs helping these dogs who will all be homed in France.
Catherine reports that the dogs have settled well at the Lévriers Garden and once ready they will be going to new homes.
In March Catherine received four ex-racing greyhounds from the UK – Misty, Ginger, Barnie and Nora.
Thank you very much to everyone involved for all your help with the above.
