"The Greyhound Holocaust”

But, when the haunting season is over, they struggle the worst in February. These greyhounds are cruelty murdered. They left to die because of thirst and hunger in a tiny crate, burned alive, or thrown off cliffs or down wells.

In these horrible, there are some lucky animals, who are released to roam free in the wild.

About 50,000 dogs are affected every year by "The Greyhound Holocaust”, according to local charities.

These dogs are seen as disposable objects by about 190,000 Spanish hunters. Life means nothing for many of these poor suffering dogs, because of this brutal tradition.


Fortunately, many local charities draw attention of these horrible acts hoping that animals will be in safe hands. A charity called the Baasgalgo Association goes around the affected areas helping to rescue stray Galgos and offering them some care and love.

The Unsung Heroes Who Saved Almost 60 Severely Emaciated Dogs in Alabama

It is not very often that we hear about The Humane Society of the United States, but the work their staff is doing definitely deserves praise. In a recent rescue operation, the heroes of this not much talked about organization saved nearly 60 dogs that were severely emaciated. The rescue operation was initiated after receiving a tip-off about an illegal breeding operation in Cottonwood, Alabama.

It turned out that the dogs were being bred for illegal fighting rings. All dogs except three were of the Dogo Argentino breed. This dog breed is used especially for hog dog rodeo fights. The dogs ranged in age from few months old to teenagers. They all looked severely emaciated and were suffering from health complications caused due to starvation. All the rescued dogs are now receiving proper medication and health care at a local shelter. The breeders are facing penalty for animal abuse. Hopefully, these dogs will recover soon. They do deserve a better life!
