We at GIN dedicate ourselves to every greyhound and galgo in need, in the hope that our efforts will improve the quality of the lives of some.

We apologise to all those whom we cannot and could not reach in time. 

Firoy the galgo rescued 1999 from Mallorca

Firoy, an Irish bitch rescued by GIN from Mallorca in 1999. All four of her legs had suffered fractures. We brought her and 300 others in similar shocking condition in Mallorca to several different countries of northern Europe.


The life that I have is all that I have
And the life that I have is yours
The love that I have of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.
A sleep I shall have, a rest I shall have
And death will be but a pause
For the years I shall have in the long green grass
Are yours and yours and yours.

Leo Marks (1920-2001)
