We don’t know how she ended up in this sorry group, but we found Brisa together with 35 other dogs in an absolutely dramatic situation, she was part of a combined herd that was rented for boar hunting. Since that day we know then as the 36 of Valdeperdices. If…
Patty is a female galga that came from Murcia. She was rescued by Scooby from an uncertain future at the hands of her previous owners. We have made her a potential virtual adoptee as she's very shy. She seems happy here in my foster home and although she is slowly…
Huesitos is a very special male galgo of around a year and a half of age. He was collected from the square in Medina and, as you can imagine from his name (huesitos literally means “little bones” in Spanish) , he was skin and bones when we found him. From…
We call him that because we think he is probably around 30 years old! A very respectable age for a ram (if a bit of an exaggeration!). He came from the Matapozuelos Zoo when it closed down, as did other animals that lived there, but he was already really old…
These two wonderful goats arrived 4 years ago from Bullas (Murcia) as consequence of a case of animal mistreatment that Scooby reported. Thanks to Raquel López, the animal rights lawyer in the Murcia region, we won the case and the goats, together with around 200 other animals officially became Scooby's.…
This is one of our guardian mastiffs. He lives in the perimeter and looks after us and our animals. He is a beautiful giant who weighs around 80 kgs (around 12.5 stone) and requires big amounts of food daily. This is a Spanish breed which, contrary to what many may…

Neron is a stunning and regal chap but suffering sadly with Leischmania He was rescued from the streets, having been exploited for one hare coursing season. He will now live out his days with the Scooby shelter manager where he’ll receive full home comforts and his regular medication. He is…
They are mother and son, and are successors to our dear Carlota after having been rescued by Scooby, because their former owner did not want them anymore. You virtually adopted them together, so you have two animals for one!!   VIRTUALLY ADOPT CAYENNE & PEPPER!
Hi there mates! My name's Blackie and I am doing fine. I'm no doubt the most handsome boy in the group although I have to admit it is possible to mistake me for one of my black cousins... We, black cats, do look alike quite a lot. That's probably the…
Scarlett is a Podenca we recently (June 2014) rescued from Bullas. She is approximately 6-7 years of age and living in Fermin´s pack now. Please help us with virtually adopting Scarlett in place of all the Podencos we rescue, although knowing that they will usually stay in our shelter for…
Aria is one of the many horses we rescued from Bullas this month (June 2014) in bad conditions. She is approximately 2-3 years of age and as you can see, she is far too small but her head has the normal size. That´s probably caused by malnutrition in her growth…
