Galgos del Sol is a registered, charity (G30856736) based in Murcia, Spain. We rescue and rehabilitate abandoned and injured galgos for placement in forever homes in the UK, Europe, and US. Bred solely for hunting, thousands of galgos are abandoned or killed annually at the end of each short season.
Galgos are not typically considered as pet worthy in Spain and their lives end in less than humane ways either in perreras (kill stations) or abandoned to a life of persecution on the streets. GdS is a non profit organization and fully dependent on donations for its survival.
What is a galgo?The Galgo Español or Spanish greyhound is an ancient breed and a member of the sighthound family. Despite being called a “greyhound”, the Spanish Galgo is not closely related to the English or Irish Greyhound, the lineage of the two breeds being different.
Adopting a galgoReadying our rescued galgos for adoption is an essential part of our mission. Every dog yearns for a forever home and galgos are no exception. Intelligent, gregarious, loyal, and affectionate, galgos are wonderful companions. Every adopted galgo is grateful for getting a second chance.
New Rescue Rubio
Poor little Rubio was found trapped with his front legs chewed to the bone by other dogs. GDS quickly took him for medical care but sadly one leg had to be amputated. Being a tripod doesn’t bother Rubio one bit and he has turned to be a charming character who is lovely with other dogs.
