The mistreatment towards greyhounds continues in Spain and will do so until the permissiveness towards the hunters and their practices finish.
2 months ago the hunting season ended and Scooby have collected so far more than 200 greyhounds since then. The fortunate ones have been left in the shelter by their owners, however many others have been rescued by us from terrible situations; As terrified as Rodri and Todri, undernourished as Camila, run over after being abandoned as Erwin or with "the shot of grace" wrongly given as in the case of Hope.
Between 70 and 80% of our dogs come from hunting. If this activity did not exist, if breeding and holding were properly controlled, if the penalties for animal abuse were stronger ... our paddocks would be almost empty.
