International Projects - Top 3 from 2019 and before

Galgos del Sol, Murcia

We have supported Tina and her team at Galgos del Sol for many years now. They work tirelessly helping the galgos and we have been able to fund the initial veterinary costs for many galgos they have rescued as well as funding projects at their centre.

In our last newsletter we mentioned the kind donations we had received in memory of our Founder, Anne Finch, and after funding the planting of 100 trees at Galgos del Sol, in her memory, we offered additional funding to expand the sensory garden at the centre.

This project is now complete and will help Tina and her team rehabilitate the galgos giving them a quiet, calm area away from the main kennels to socialise and gain confidence with new surroundings and people.

Anne’s three legged galgo, Mario, came from Galgos de Sol.



112carlotagalgos, Malaga

We were recently able to visit Charlotte and Dioni at 112carlottagalgos in Malaga. They had moved premises since our last visit so we were all excited to see their new finca.

It was larger than their previous finca but Charlotte and Dioni have worked hard to make it a lovely place for the galgos to live and be cared for until they are ready for adoption.

They have recently added a clinic building to their premises and having a vet on site certainly eases the burden on Charlotte as the regular visits to the vets with so many dogs took up a lot of her day. We were very impressed with the clinic and were able to meet Rosa, the vet. Charlotte had asked us for some help with the clinic and this made our visit very important so that we could see for ourselves what was needed. Leigh, one of our Trustees, himself a vet, was able to discuss the clinic and equipment with Rosa and Charlotte and we are pleased to say that we have funded the purchase of the following veterinary equipment to aid their work.

  • Oxygen Concentrator
  • Anaesthetic Machine
  • Scales
  • Operating Lamp
  • Laryngoscope
  • Anaesthetic circuits and consumables
  • Surgical Tray
  • Suture materials
  • Anaesthetic Monitoring machine
  • Surgical equipment

This year we have given funding towards initial veterinary costs for 24 galgos they have rescued and you can see photos of the last 12 galgos helped here
