July-21-2020 : DOG-DAY ( DĂŤA del PERRO)

Today is ” DĂ­a del Perro /  Dog Day” and on such a  occasion we want to make a plea in the name of a group of dogs that seem to have been removed from the category “dog” in this society of ours, and in the world in general. We let ourselves be biased by a label hung on them by humans; we’re talking about the famous PPP (potentially dangerous dogs) once again.
Are they not dogs?
Are they not great companions of humans, depending on how they are treated?
Why are they left out in such a terrible manner?
Today we cannot stop feeling sad for them, all of them. The ones who have spent half their lives locked up  in a kennel, for those who have been used as a toy for sadists and for all those who have crossed the rainbow bridge because of lack of human willingness to undo or mend rules we have created ourselves. The dogs are not to blame for anything; the ones at fault here are people who then wash their hands of the problems and leave these innocent beings aside, since nobody cares about their fate…
So here we are asking again, with very little hope, and with great sorrow, please think about these innocent dogs too… please

 ‼️ IMPORTANT  Message ‼️  March/10/2020 
We are very concerned about our animals and their future. As you know we are only able to give many dogs and cats in adoption collaborating with associations from countries such as France, Italy, Holland, Czech Republic or the USA.
It’s clear that if it were not for the help from outside Spain it would be impossible for us to rescue so many animals, as the adoptions in Spain only take up less than 15% of the total number of adoptions. Say, what happens if the transport of animals will be banned due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak ? At the moment one trip scheduled to Milan/Italy won’t take place for this reason. This means that the animals have to stay with us longer, and worse, while some don’t leave we cannot help others because we have no place. On top of this there are a lot of dogs that arrive sick or with injuries, which makes this start of the year very hard. The number of abandoned galgos has skyrocketed this year too, and we often pick up whole litters of puppies as well. We are overwhelmed and very worried about all this and we need money to deal with this situation, whose length is uncertain and we have no way of knowing if it will improve or get worse. For all the above reasons, we are asking everyone: If you were thinking of adopting, now is the best time! If you cannot do that, but still want to help us keep going, you can collaborate in the next following ways:

The Scooby GALGOS & PODENCOS

80% of the dogs rescued by Scooby are the result of hunting. Most of them are simply “discarded” by huntsmen and galgueros (Spanish greyhound breeders) when they are no longer profitable, and are mainly galgos and podencos. The over-breeding of these animals in the hope of getting a “winner” amongst countless litters makes our work never-ending. It is thanks to international adoptions that we can continue with our work rescuing more animals. We organise about 20 trips around Europe per year in order to take our dogs to their new adoptive homes. In addition, we are seeing an increase in the number of adoptions from the USA. Scooby rescues around 600 galgos a year, some handed over by their “owners” but most are found wandering the streets, abandoned. Many of these are hurt or arrive with physical wounds after being hit by cars, and so require medical attention and sometimes surgery, which is all very costly. Not to mention the emotional scars a lot of them are left with. Most can be re-homed after a lot of care and effort, but the most traumatized cases normally stay on with us.

 

 

The Invisible “FORGOTTEN” Scooby – Dogs

Unfortunately, it is a different story for podencos, mixed-breeds, elderly and sick dogs. They are the “invisible” or “Forgotten dogs”, who can spend years in the shelter and even end up dying here .  For all Forgotten Galgos/ Podencos and all Forgotten ( mix)-dogs see :      www.scoobysforgottengalgos.org 

Please, do not forget the many  “Forgotten, sick and elderly Scooby-Dogs” … they need a loving Home too…

Scooby – Mastins 

They impress with their size and their appearance as bears, they are usually calm, noble, intelligent dogs, very defenders of their family and territory, affectionate, also stubborn at times …. it is another of the breeds that suffer the most in our country, left behind to their fate in most cases they appear at villages and fields .
We’ll find it very difficult to find families for them, mainly because of their size …
In the video below you will see some of the big guys who are waiting for a family …

If you are fallen in love with these wonderful companions, maybe you would want to change the life of one of them…
Please they need you so very much

ADOPT, DON’T SHOP

All those who keep buying pets because they believe it’s better if they are of a certain breed, we’d like to invite all of you to come one day to our facilities or to those of any other association you know close by. A single half an hour walk, especially on these hard winter days, would most likely make your heart ache until you can’t take it anymore, you might even feel like crying when looking at those faces freezing in the cold and crying to get out of there. Many would say they couldn’t stand it, that they don’t want to see it, but make no mistake, the fact that you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not real.
Our work is a Band-Aid solution to a problem caused by many, which we should all work together to solve. When you buy pets you encourage the continuity of dog breeding, because as long their pups are in demand breeders will not stop breeding more. They only use their dogs for financial gain, the poor mothers often live a lifetime of horror just to birth that cute puppy that you want to buy, and while you live in your world with your pretty puppy, turning a blind eye to what’s going on, there are many other innocent puppies (who are not the least bit unworthy) doomed to live their life behind bars.  It is in your hands to do your bit for this cause, because each one of those lives MATTERS !!!

 

IN HONOUR AND APPRECIATION OF ALL RESCUERS OF THIS COUNTRY WHO DEDICATE THEIR LIFES TO SAVE GALGO’S LIFES

www.scoobymedina.org Nov/14/2019

It is not easy to rescue a Galgo. It is a task that requires infinite patience and it usually takes a lot of time and perseverance. Sometimes it can even take months. One must keep track of the dog, try to get a food routine going, so it won’t leave the area, run like mad when there’s news of a dog being seen in a place like the middle of a road, crossing a motorway or in any other situation of imminent danger, trying to prevent the worst. There are many who end up run over.
It depends on how scared, wary and hungry they are. We try to draw them close in different ways. Some, a small number, only require a few days or weeks, as was the case with Arturo. We managed to make him get in the car and today this once skinny galgo is a therapy dog in the USA.
For the most difficult cases we have to set up a cage, which usually means waiting for hours or days and food isn’t always enough to lure them in, we often need to try different methods.
There are numerous dogs whose story doesn’t have a happy ending, like Princess for whom we didn’t arrive in time.
What is very easy for some people, and is often done without a moment of thinking, is abandoning a galgo to its fate, knowing full well that it has very little chance of surviving by itself.
For others this results in many sleepless nights, many headaches, a lot of time commitment, a great deal of patience and a lot of suffering. Although the ones who really suffer are them, the galgos.
This is the reality we live in. We, who are dedicated to trying to get to them before they die under the wheels of a car…

DEDICADO A TODOS LOS RESCATISTAS DE ESTE PAĂŤS QUE PASAN HORAS Y HORAS, DĂŤAS TRAS DĂŤAS SALVANDO VIDAS No es fácil rescatar a un galgo. Es una tarea de mucha paciencia, requiere por lo general mucha constancia, a veces tardamos meses… hay que seguir su pista, conseguir hacer una rutina de comida que no siempre es posible para que no se vaya de una zona, salir corriendo cuando hay algĂşn aviso de que ha sido visto en un lugar…en medio de una carretera, cruzando una autovĂ­a o en alguna situaciĂłn de peligro inminente para intentar disuadirle. Son muchos los que mueren atropellados.Depende del grado de miedo, desconfianza, hambre… le intentamos persuadir de distintas maneras, algunos, los menos, solo requieren unos dĂ­as o semanas como fue el caso de Arturo que conseguimos que subiera al coche tan delgado como estaba y vive ahora en EEUU y es galgo de terapia. Para los casos mas difĂ­ciles hay que poner la jaula, lo que suele suponer horas o dĂ­as de espera y no siempre la comida consigue hacerles entrar, entonces se hace necesario probar distintas maneras de utilizarla.Muchos son los que no tienen un final feliz como fue el caso de Princesa para la que no llegamos a tiempo.Lo que para algunos es muy fácil y se hace en un momento, dejar abandonado a un galgo a su suerte, sabiendo que tiene muy pocas posibilidades de sobrevivir por sus propios medios, para otros nos supone muchos desvelos, muchos quebraderos de cabeza, mucho tiempo, mucha paciencia y mucho sufrimiento, aunque los que de verdad lo padecen son ellos.Esta es la realidad que vivimos los que nos dedicamos a tratar de cogerles antes de que mueran atropellados.www.scoobymedina.org////////////////////////////////////////////IN HONOUR AND APPRECIATION OF ALL RESCUERS OF THIS COUNTRY WHO DEDICATE THEIR LIFES TO SAVE GALGO’S LIFESIt’s not easy to rescue a galgo.

How to adopt from Scooby

Apart from financial support, you can help us by adopting one of our many dogs. Generally speaking Galgos are the perfect pets who adjust easily to their new environment, who hardly bark and seldom pull the leash. In most countries these dogs are not allowed to walk without a leash as a result of their strong hunting instinct. However these dogs need enough exercise, especially when they are young. If you consider adopting a Galgo you therefore need to spend enough time walking the dog and giving him or her your attention. Don’t like Galgos? We have every type of dog or cat you can think of.

Before leaving the Scooby shelter all dogs and cats are:

  • spayed/neutered
  • vaccinated for rabies, distemper, parvovirus, leptospirosis, adenovirus (hepatitis)
  • blood tested – Mediterranean diseases. Cats are vaccinated, but not blood tested unless specifically requested
  • microchipped

All of this is documented in the European Pet Passport and validated by a licensed veterinarian.

LIVING ABROAD – INTERNATIONAL ADOPTION

SCOOBY TRANSPORTS all over  THE WORLD  
Every year, Scooby transports hundreds of dogs, puppies, cats and kittens to forever homes around the World.
Some are driven in vans to European countries, such as Holland, Germany, France, Italy and Slovenia.
Others are brought to the Madrid airport or Barcelona airport to travel to Finland, Canada and the USA.
The Scooby staff goes above and beyond to do these transports at all times of day and night.
Scooby has set up an adoption-program in cooperation with local Scooby offices and rescue organizations in Europe. Throughout the year, Scooby transports dogs and cats to the cooperating organizations, located in Belgium, France, Germany, Holland, Italy , Switzerland and Slovenia. We also have volunteers coming from the USA and bring back dogs for adoption through their rescue organizations, located in Colorado, Virginia, New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts. Each organization has its own set of adoption policies and rules which are followed for each adoption.
