World Galgo Day: February 1
Every year in Spain, thousands of galgos are born and bred to hunt. They endure a life of fear and cruelty and when they are no longer useful, they are savagely killed… Hung from trees, thrown into wells, beaten to death or abandoned.
Even though Galgos need our help all year long, World Galgo Day was started so that we can unite and speak with one voice about the plight of these beautiful dogs. February 1 was chosen because it marks the end of hunting season when many Galgos meet a fate worse than the life of cruelty that they have already endured.
