Galgos are not seen as companion animals and often have difficult lives filled with neglect and abuse. You can help rescue, socialize and love them.
The Galgos are given medical care, physiotherapy, aqua-therapy, socialization and love until they can be adopted. This centre adopts these rehabilitated dogs to new homes all over the world, including places as far away as Norway and Canada. Galgos as companion animals are known for their gentleness, sleepy attitudes and charming facial expressions. And they love being part of the group. There is always a happy pack of Galgos to great you at the gate when you come in to visit! Surprisingly, in spite of their shocking and horrific past lives, this centre does not have many experiences with dangerous or aggressive Galgos- past volunteers have all remarked how gentle and loving these dogs are.
In the volunteers free time there are trails to hike, an ocean to swim, cafes to drink coffee in! Volunteers has evenings free to explore Spain at the leisure- or read a book in the peaceful mountains!
