First school visit to our Rescue and Education Centre.

Last thursday 17th of May something that would have been completely  unimaginable in the past happened at Galgos del Sol Rescue and Education Centre all thanks to the generosity from Greyhounds in Need.

Kings College from Roldan was invited to be the very first school to visit the Galgos del Sol Rescue and Education Centre. Months and months of preparation and finally the kids came to experience something unique in the area. We learnt about GALGOS,their problems,how we care about them,what things are needed to take care of a GALGO (or any other dog) and also we made some artistic drawings. In total 50 kids enjoyed a lovely morning along with 4 teachers and went back home ready to be GALGO ambassadors. Thank you to Greyhounds in Need for making this education room possible it already started to make such a big difference and more visits to come in the near future.
