I am Tina Solera, the founder and president of Galgos del Sol. In 2007, my family and I moved from the UK to Murcia, Spain. I spent my time raising our two toddlers, training for triathalons and acclimating to a new culture. One day, however, I came face to face with a stray galgo looking for help.
It's hard to explain the connection that I felt but when he looked at me with his soulful eyes and stretched out that needle nose, I knew my life had changed forever. Galgos del Sol is now responsible for over 150 galgos, podencos and mixes of those breeds. We are a licensed charity in Spain as well as the UK, and a 501(C)(3) in the US.
