Stop killing dogs

The Galgos Espaņoles (Spanish Greyhounds) are traditionally bred and used for hunting.
After the hunting season these dogs become a liability to their owners and for that reason
many are dumped. Thousands of these -often young- greyhounds all over Spain are annually
discarded and perish horribly. They are killed by hanging, shot or thrown into deep wells.
They are even set on fire. On other occasions acid from old batteries is poured over them.
Most galgos are killed by 'galgueros' in the triangle Valladolid-Salamanca-Toledo.
For years dog rescue groups and shelters in Spain and other European countries have been
protesting against the torturing and killing of galgos. Each year hundreds of galgos are
adopted in European countries and the United States where galgos live as pets.
