10/25/2012: In response to over 30,000 signatures collected here, the Prime Minister's office responded with a letter acknowledging the disgraceful treatment of los galgos and current measures to stop it. A full translation is available under the more info section. In the meantime, let's continue demanding stricter enforcement of existing statutes as well as new laws addressing this dilemma.

Greyhounds are loving animals and make great pets, but unfortunately they are regarded as mere money-making machines in the hunting world. The Spanish greyhound is an ancient breed of dog that is widely used as a hunting companion during Spain's hunting season. However, at the end of the hunting seasons, the dogs are discarded like garbage.

If you walk along the streets of certain Spanish towns at the end of the hunting season, you will see skinny and starving dogs hoping to find scraps of food outside restaurants or lying on the sidewalk while people simply walk by unaffected.

During their short lifetimes these dogs are treated solely as property and do not receive human contact. When it's time to get rid of them, the hunters simply let them free to fend for themselves, or worse, hang them. They often watch for entertainment.

Call on Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to strengthen the country's animal protection laws.

Dear Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy:

I urge you to introduce tighter legislation banning the torture of animals.

Spanish greyhounds are being used for hunting during the Spanish hunting season, but when the season ends, these dogs are discarded like trash. Whether they're set free to fend for themselves, thrown down wells, or hung from trees, there is no reprieve in the life of a Spanish greyhound.

These gentle animals crave human attention; they are calm and friendly and make great family pets. There is no reason they can't be adopted into good families following the hunting season.

I urge you to strengthen your animal protection laws as this unspeakable inhumanity must stop now.

Thank you.

Feb 1, 2015 Karen Daley Please form a program to help get these animals adopted. It is very hard to believe that Spanish people can be so callous as to kill or starve these dogs.. Can't they have lean scraps of meat, and water everyday by one caring person?
