An emaciated black galgo with its leg in plaster


Greyhounds in Need CIO (GIN) is an English registered charity concerned with the plight of greyhounds and the Spanish-bred hunting greyhounds (galgos) who have need of assistance owing to abandonment, maltreatment, age, infirmity or other disadvantageous circumstances. 

We work with many shelters in Spain who carry out the primary rescue work and the homing groups and individuals in Europe who, in sympathy with our work, promote adoption
in their own countries.

Help us support the rescue and rehoming of galgos and greyhounds in need. Find out more about the dogs available for rehoming, visit our shop, donate directly, and support our education programme, which aims to improve the lives of galgos in Spain.
