Europe4strays joins its voice to raise awareness of the plight of the Galgos (spanish sighthounds) and let people know what beautiful creatures these dogs are.

There is a very cruel custom amongst some Spanish hunters, or "galgueros," that kills more than 50,000 galgos every year.

Because the galgos are regarded under Spanish law as working dogs, they are excluded from the laws relating to pets. They are considered to be goods, no different than agricultural machines that can be disposed of or used in whatever manner their owner decides. 

We support this courageous initiative, a documentary film about the Galgos by Yeray Lopez Portillo.
