Why It Matters
Each year thousands of greyhounds are bred, murdered and used by hunters in Spain. Hunting activities involving the greyhounds are prohibited throughout the rest of Europe. The serious abuse, systematic and large scale of suffering by these animals are moving the world but the Spanish government denies the facts and pushes back the evidence submitted by the animal rights associations in Spanish or foreign countries for nearly 10 years. Now we get things done and that the use of Galgos and Podenco for hunting should be prohibited in Spain. Their suffering is real, and unworthy for a country belonging to the European Union. Thank you for sign and circulate this petition.

Shows critical situation of Galgos, Spanish hunting dogs. 50,000 die each year at the end of the hunting season. Many are abused and horribly injured before death or abandonment. Many groups in Spain and the world work together to rescue, medically treat, and rehome these graceful dogs. Please watch and get involved. Adopt or rescue, instead of buying a new pup or dog.
You may want to turn of the sound, and its also graphic.
please stop this killing
