Is an initiative to help dogs, not people or organisations.

Greyhounds and Galgos are primarily used for hunting and track-racing, they are gentle, docile, sweet and patient dogs. After 1 to 3 seasons these dogs are sometimes discarded in a horrendous way. In Spain they are hung by their neck in trees, burnt with gasoline, buried alive or towed by a speeding car until they are dead. If they are lucky they are released in the streets where they are likely to be run over by cars. These 'strays' are occasionally caught and brought to the dog-pound or a shelter.
