Send us Stamps
Many thanks to supporters for donating books of stamps. This has been very helpful, and if you could continue to send these to us it will certainly lighten and share the load of postage costs on GIN which is something we cannot control. Postage costs are always increasing; our daily post consists of acknowledging your letters and kind donations, answering queries, sending reports, collecting boxes, and material for events and homing and introductory packages to newcomers, to say nothing of the twice-yearly newsletter mailouts. Stamps, of any denomination, are very welcome.
Used Postage Stamps – Please send any used postage stamps to Greyhounds in Need, 5A, 80 High Street, Egham, Surrey, TW20 9HE, UK. We are pleased to receive these stamps and are able to sell them in bulk to raise funds towards our work for the greyhounds and galgos.
United States Postage stamps – Anita Zehm would be happy to receive donations of used postage stamps from all over the States for onward transmission to GIN. Please send to Anita Zehm, 1815 Syringa Drive, Emmett, ID 83617, USA.
Write to an MEP
Please write to an MEP about the plight of the galgos. A full list of MEPs can be found here – http://www.europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/directory.html Below is a SAMPLE letter you can use.
It is well known in Spain and abroad that many galgos (Spanish-bred hunting dogs) are routinely abandoned or killed every year at the end of the hunting season, which only lasts for four months.
Many galgos have been neglected, or have obviously been mutilated to disguise their identity. The welfare groups in Spain are faced with some terrible cases of abuse, and despite many complaints to the authorities and petitions over the years, these barbaric practices continue unabated.
Greyhounds in Need CIO www.greyhoundsinneed.co.uk an English-registered charity, is devoted to the rescue, treatment and rehoming of the galgos and they work closely with shelters in Spain and adoption groups in mainland Europe to help many galgos each year but know that they are only dealing with a fraction of the galgos abandoned.
We respectfully ask you to raise this matter at the European Parliament to enact and enforce humanitarian legislation to protect the galgos of Spain from such barbaric treatment. This would help bring Spain to its rightful position alongside other European nations in according to proper standards of protection to its animal population. It would also free foreign charities from the burden of coping with the results of this lack of protection.
