We have just seen a wonderful, and in my view thoroughly justified, tribute to our work and to your support by the award of “Best Welfare Success” at the annual Wetnose Animal Awards. The awards ceremony was held in March at the Carlton Tower Hotel in London and those interested may see my brief video presentation and a picture of me in full flow by following this link (unfortunately this link is no longer available).

As I am only too well aware, others do all the work, while I just try to spout on your behalf. These donations are very much appreciated and will go towards our work in Spain. At the moment we are funding some projects in Spain to improve facilities at some of the shelters.

We have also received a donation of £1,000 from Animal Friends Insurance. They have an Employee of the Month scheme and the winner of this award is given the opportunity to donate £1,000 to a charity of their choice.

As the economic downturn continues to bite in Spain, times are tough for our dedicated Spanish friends and we continue to do all we can, with your support, to help them and the galgos in many different ways.
