Today we launch our first appeal on behalf of the PAWS shelter/Ibizan Hound Rescue and the Kimba Refuge.

These fantastic animal shelters save hundreds of stray, abused and abandoned animals every year, many of which are galgos and podencos (Spanish hunting hounds). The shelters have only basic facilities and are run solely by volunteers.

Recently both these shelters have experienced hard times and need our help more than ever.

The Ibizan Hound Rescue is helping in the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of 60 galgos which were confiscated from horrific conditions by the owner who was an animal hoarder.

The Kimba Refuge has experienced terrible flooding after weeks of bad weather and the dogs desperately need bedding and coats to help keep them warm and dry.

For full information on the appeal and how you can contribute please see our “special appeals” page. You will be helping dogs like this one below, kept in a dark hovel with terrible injuries and saved from the animal hoarder:
