In 1995, we read an article in a newspaper on the plight of racing greyhounds after their racing days were over. This prompted us to take on our first greyhound, a 6 year old male. Chappie arrived on 4th July and after 3 baths, we discovered he was white and brindle! Having raced the length and breadth of the UK, he so deserved a happy retirement. Tragically, it was short lived and at the age of 7 he was diagnosed with a calcification of thespine and we had to put him to sleep. Having discovered that 10,000 greyhounds like Chappie needed homes each year, when approached by the national organiser of the Retired Greyhound Trust to establish a local Rescue Centre here in Jersey, it seemed the obvious path to follow. We are currently celebrating our 12th Anniversary having homed 120 dogs here in Jersey, Guernsey, Sark and Alderney. LINK

Ibizan Hound Rescue is a sub-society of PAWS-PATAS, Los Gallardos, Almeria. PAWS is a long established small, privately run charity which endeavours to help, treat, rehabilitate and re-home stray dogs from the province of Almeria in Southern Spain. Recently PAWS has found itself trying to deal with more and more Ibizan Hounds (Podenco Ibicenco) and Andalucian Hounds (Podenco Andaluz), including Podenco Lurcher cross breeds and recognised a need to broaden the homing possibilities of these wonderfully unique dogs. As a result, and with the expert help of Jenny Startup in UK, the Ibizan Hound Rescue website was born. LINK



“A rescue for the Galgo Espanol (Galgo) and Podnecos. PRO-GALGO was founded in 1999 by Mo Swatek, swiss sighthound lover who wanted to help after hearing about the hanging of the galgos.
