Would you like to see Scooby residents more closely and have additional information about them? Well, to be able to share more and that you could see our animals in more detail, we have created this specialized page.



                                                                                                                                      📌INFORMATION NOTE📌


In the publications on Facebook,  were we ask for families for our dogs and cats , we add an email address 📧;  that is where you should mail your questions  about the adoption process and conditions and to request more information about the animal in question (not through private message to the facebook page or in the comments of the publications).
We also ask for a little patience when receiving the response to your emails, since there are more than 400 dogs and cats that usually reside in Scooby (plus all who arrive daily), and therefore the work in the shelter is very much. We would like to be able to answer the emails the same moment, but sometimes the work overflows us and  it could take  one day replying , we apologize for it.
If a contact email does not appear in any publication, it is because that dog or cat has just been rescued and cannot  be adopted yet; since by law you have to wait a certain number of days before looking for new homes.
On our main Scooby website  ( Adoptions ) you will find all available Galgos/Podencos and (mix)-dogs (  ) ( in alphabetical order )
and all available  cats :   ( in alphabetical order )
On the scooby website you will find the (Forgotten ) and new arrivals  Galgos/Podencos and ( mix-) dogs ( arranged in categories )

ABOUT  the SCOOBY  shelter and Sanctuary

3 of the many rescued Scooby  animals , living in the Sanctuary at Scooby/Medina del Campo

SCOOBY / Medina del Campo is a Spanish animal shelter that saves hundreds of Galgos and other types of dogs and  cats.  In Medina Del Campo is also  a sanctuary for horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, chicken, geese, pigs and others animals every year. February is the end of the hunting season, when hundreds of galgos are dumped at Scooby  who were no longer useful.

Scooby  has 4 shelters : Medina del Campo, Valladolid, Zamora and Palencia

SCOOBY, shelter and sanctuary, has been providing a home to mistreated and abandoned animals for more than 30 years. It was created thanks to the initiative of a group of women who wanted to do something about the amount of abandoned dogs in the area of Medina del Campo (Valladolid). In the nineties, Scooby brings to light the atrocities inflicted on Spanish galgos and its work is internationalized by Scooby´s  Founder and President, Fermín Pérez Martín.

At the present, international funding and adoptions from countries such as Holland, France, Italy and Germany are crucial for our NGO. In 2015, for the first time since Scooby´s inception, the number of adoptions of dogs and cats surpassed that of collections with a total of 1138 adoptions.

Despite of this, the abandonment numbers do not decrease and are giving us in 2017 alarming figures. Every day an average of 4 to 5 abandoned animals arrive at our shelters. The end of the hunting season in February along with the birth of unwanted litters, especially in spring, mark two critical points of abandonment.

Nowadays SCOOBYY is the largest shelter in Spain and its premises home more than 600 dogs and cats, plus 200 farm animals in our Sanctuary. Horses, donkeys, goats, sheeps, pigs, geese, ducks, etc… All of them with a past of abuse live today free in our meadows.

Scooby is mainly financed through donations, membership fees and merchandising sales. In addition, it carries out the pickup service of abandoned animals in Palencia, Zamora, in the province of Salamanca and Medina del Campo.
