112 Carlota Galgos is a non-profit association launched in 2012 which works for the protection of the Spanish Greyhound, the Galgo. Based in Andalucía, Spain, we rescue, heal and look for adoptions for Galgos in need.
There are many ways in which you can either help the Galgos or help us to help the Galgos.
Firstly an adoption is the biggest gift of life you can offer. It gives a new life in stability and love which is forever. Also fostering – if you prefer to be a bridge for the Galgos until they reach their forevers.
Financial help is amazing, it gives us respite in our concerns which are daily, outstanding vet bills which soar, help to buy good food, this is primary for the first thing which enters into a Galgo should be good food. We have many economic pressures in the rescue of Galgos, many come in wounded, injured and need help. Economic help allows us to continue paying for their care and attention. Without kind help, we can no longer continue.
Publicity – if you work in public relations, this gives us the chance to promote the work which we do and share the plight of the Galgos with many, many who still are unaware of this abusive and distressing problem in Spain. Interviews such as radio, television and newspaper articles are great opportunities for the Galgos.
Word of mouth – this is powerful for it’s here that if you tell many a person all about the plight and just how gentle a Galgo is, it invites change. While you may be unable to adopt, someone you are telling may!
Sewing coats – Galgos feel the cold. If you sew then we would love to hear from you.
We are a voluntary organisation and rely entirely on donations and money raised from various fundraising projects.
We need your financial help to continue to rescue, care for and find homes for the Galgos.
We do not receive any funding from the Government or local authority and all the help we receive is voluntary.
