Please HELP us to HELP them 


When God had made the earth and sky, the flowers and trees,
He then made all the animals and all the birds and bees.
And when His work was finished not one was quite the same
He said, I`ll walk this earth of mine and give each one a name.
And so He travelled land and sea and everywhere He went,
A little creature follwed Him, until his strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth and in the sky and sea,
The little creature said, Dear Lord, there`s not one left for me.
The Father smiled and softly said, I`ve left you to the end.
I`ve turned my own name back to front and
called you DOG, my friend.

Foster- Homes  are very necessary ! The importance is so big that the difference for an animal from having a Foster Home or not having a Foster Home can safe his life.., it is so hard to say but so real.
Especially winter is critical for the oldies, sick animals or puppies in the shelter;  if you are thinking to adopt or foster  than this is the best time..
It takes courage to foster, because it is hard to let a furry friend go once they come into your life, but it is also one of the greatest acts of love for animals. When one finds a home there will be another waiting to have a chance … and this circle never seems to end …
If you want to be a foster home to an animal in need please  send us an email :

For more information and donation of  new Dog-Houses, please send an  e-mail to:



PILINO, the reason for the ” PILINO-PROJECT , barking as usual… We love him anyway 🥰

Afbeelding kan het volgende bevatten: hond, buiten en natuur


Part I ( sept/29/2019 ):  You may ask what this ” Well, it’s something that we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and it’s great news for us to finally be able to start as there are many months of work and effort behind it.
Surely many of you are aware of the large number of dogs that we have with difficulties to get adopted. Mainly dogs that find it hard to build a relationship with people; ones that barely had any human contact or if they did, it’s been negative. This logically makes their adoption very difficult. The project got its name from one of these dogs, called Pilino ( the one in the first picture) He arrived very young and although he has improved since and aren’t so afraid, he still cannot easily go into someone’s house.
After thinking hard on the subject we decided to free up two patios to create a very large new one where we will build small enclosures.
The plan is to house one unsociable dog in each, together with one that’s sociable and with whom they get along so as to make it easier to approach them and work on their rehabilitation, and because living with a friendly dog ​​will help them progress as well.
We are currently starting with the work and we wanted you to get to know this project because we’re going to need volunteers who could commit to help with it. It’s a very important task as this may be the only way out of the shelter for many animals. Those willing to help us in this mission will receive training from an expert.

Part II : Do you remember the Pilino project? A new project to help the fearful dogs in the shelter?
As we continue working, the new yards are being built, and as soon as the first ones are finished we will move the first dogs to help them in their rehabilitation ☀️ We need doghouses for this project; We are looking for people who know and want to help us build them,(materials if we have) and also people who want to donate any house they might have and no longer use.
If any of those are true in your case, get in touch with us through Facebook.
If you’re interested please contact us through the following email:
We will keep you informed on the progress of this project on (Protectora y Santuario Scooby – Home | Facebook )

Part III ( Oct/18/2019 ) : 3,2,1 … NOW!  Start Pilot Operation!
In previous episodes or post, we told you that we were launching a project to recover dogs with fear.
Our idea was to make smaller yards to get closer to these dogs and socialize them.
Well … the yards are almost finished, and we are already working on the booths.
Last Sunday, Pablo, an excellent trainer, gave us some guidelines, to a group of volunteers and workers, to be able to work more effectively with these dogs. Operation iPilino is underway .

If you want to be a participant and help those who have the most difficulty get in touch with us :

RUBIA, Galga, born 6/2010

Elderly dogs, with tumors, with Leishmania or extremely thin… ☹️
When we rescue animals we do it because they need help and because we’re worried about the fate that might await them without it.
We don’t choose them for their color, size or age, nor do we care if they’re healthy or sick … We don’t select which dogs to help, we don’t think about whether they’re more or less beautiful or sociable, we don’t even consider if they will be easily adopted or if no one will want to give them a home and they’ll have to spend the rest of their lives with us in the shelter. None of that matters …
In Scooby we are animal lovers and our main goal is to help the ones most in need as they also deserve the best life possible.

Oct/22/2019    DAPHNE LEGACY TOUR 

After months of fund-raising by Daphne Legacy Tour as well as weeks of intricate preparations and getting to grips with the regulations ahead of each trip,  Daphne Legacy Tour flew to the USA this morning with the last consignment of our rescued galgos in their autumn 2019 transport.
The group of 16 galgos leave Spain today ( Oct/22/2019) for the USA.
This means over the last two years  Daphne Legacy Tour has transported over 100 galgos (some are in the photos  on FB , see: Daphne Legacy Tour ( click on ) 102 to be precise, to new lives in the USA (marked on the  map above).
Daphne Legacy Tour from our shelter last year and two this year, with early starts for our drivers and the stalwart fight chaperones to take the dogs to the airport in time for take-off to the Land of the Free.
We are very grateful to Daphne Legacy Tour for their momentous efforts to get these beautiful galgos to new homes and for the suitcases of donations they have delivered to our shelter on each voyage. Immense thanks. We are also proud of, and grateful to, our Scooby team who worked with Daphne Legacy Tour to make it happen.




October/12/2019: The start of the HUNTING season.

Starting today until the January/26/2020, those dogs that lack ardour, fail to run clean or get injured while doing so will be left behind.
Then from 26 January, all those galgos that haven’t done their job well or simply have already given everything they could possibly give to their owners, will be abandoned.
Some, the most fortunate, will be taken in by a dog pound or a shelter, while others will be left to their fate in the middle of a field or on some road, and there’ll be those that’ll sadly be killed straight away.

We are very grateful for the help we receive from our volunteers – local and international. Understandably we must also insist that volunteers read and comply with the basic rules before applying to volunteer at our shelter. These rules are in place for the safety of our rescued animals and to avoid generating extra work for our small team of staff. These rules are given to volunteers before they come and are on display in the shelter. The rules apply to all volunteers equally and anyone failing to comply will be requested to leave the shelter.

Volunteer feedback tells us that working at our shelter is a truly rewarding experience. This is helped if everyone follows the rules and we welcome their work. If you think these rules are not for you, then it’s better for the animals if you don’t offer practical work to the shelter.

❖ CLOSE all doors/gates behind you. An open door is a high risk. The shelter’s main gates are kept locked at ALL times. (If you stay in onsite accommodation you will be able to borrow a key.)
❖Do not feed the animals (including snacks and treats).
❖ Please do only the work the shelter supervisor/manager allocates to you and go only into the areas you are asked to.
❖ When you have finished your allocated work, please ask the supervisor/manager for the next job.
❖ If you have an idea or skill to offer, check with the supervisor/manager first.
❖ Volunteers/Visitors are NOT permitted to remove ANY animals from the kennels, enclosures, cattery or shelter rooms without permission.
❖ Please turn off lights, heaters any electrical equipment when not in use.
❖ Please replace all tools in the correct place. Please tidy up after your work.
❖ Access to the Scooby Farm is restricted. If you would like to visit, please ask to be escorted there at a pre-arranged time.
❖ Access to the hospital and infirmary is restricted. Do not enter without permission.
❖ If a visitor arrives at the main gate with or without an animal, please alert the shelter supervisor/manager. Do not take an animal from the visitor without help from Scooby staff.
❖ Remember housekeeping in the communal areas for humans and keep them clean, i.e. kitchens, bathrooms etc..
❖ Please keep animals out of the kitchen and food preparation areas.
❖ Scooby vehicles can be driven only with permission. Please re-fill the fuel after use.
❖ Walk calmly around the shelter and do not shout or make loud noises (e.g. music/radios)
❖ Avoid situations where dogs compete for affection, i.e. do not enter enclosures/kennels without permission; do not pet the dogs when they are in groups or introduce toys without permission.
❖ Do NOT visit the animals in the enclosures, or walk through the kennel areas after the working day has finished at 6pm. You will be given a number to call in the event of an emergency.
❖ Before taking photographs, please ask permission. It is forbidden to take photographs of sick and injured animals.





The main purpose of this day is to remember the importance of the conservation of animal species on the planet, since the welfare of ourselves is integrated into the welfare of all animals and the environment. Humans are the most evolved species (or so it is supposed) and for that reason we have the obligation to, at a minimum, respect the rest of the animals that inhabit our planet, since they have the same right to life as we do.

” The Secret of the ” SCOOBY SUCCES ” :   WORK-WORK  and more WORK “

May is coming to and end, Thank God, my feelings are difficult to express 🤨, on one side an enormous happiness , more than 200 dogs and 75 cats have found their golden basket, but the work at the shelter has been enormous, you cannot imagine the huge amount of papers that need to be prepared, TRACES, passports, registrations , the new papers for the American government, it has been a real nightmare 🤪.
And what about the transportations, to the airport and to all those countries 🗺️, every weekend we have had at. Least one transport and believe me, this is exhausting, more than 30000 km. Driven in one month 🛣️ and here I would like to thank specially to our drivers, doing this job tirelessly and with a huge responsabilty between their hands , they always did a very efficient job.
The final result is a huge success , LOTS OF HAPPY ANIMALS AND HAPPY FAMILIES 🤗, and do you want to know the secret for this enormous success; WORK, WORK AND MORE WORK 💪, some people sometimes ask themselves what is the secret from Scooby , voilá an enormous amount of work.
