We support rescue shelters and individuals in Spain who want to work with children and young people to raise awareness of galgo welfare issues, how dogs should be treated, and how galgos make great pets! We fund the development of educational resources to facilitate learning and provide grants to help shelters set up and run their programmes.

Patricia in her own words: “I am a Spanish woman on the verge of turning 40, but I am British at heart. I am an English teacher who loves to travel. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially my three children. But, most of all, I love dogs. Coco and I have been partners in life for 15 years. He´s a mutt, half greyhound and half podenco, who has forever changed my life. Our bond has inspired me to educate others on the issue of Galgos here in Spain. With my teaching experience, I know I have the ability to connect with teens and young adults, and I want to share my passion for Galgos, because they truly enrich our lives”.
