New houses for dogs


Ten years ago a Dutch fund-raising group donated wooden outdoor shelters for the galgos. They use them to take cover from the rain, snow and sun.

We need at least 6 brick built and insulated shelters as shown in the diagram.

The estimated cost for all 6 is €25,000.

Labour is extra. The fund-raising for this project is being shared between the European groups active for Scooby, all donations are gratefully received.

These outdoor shelters are so important to provide cover from the elements in scorching summers and harsh winters.During warm Spanish nights, some of the dogs sleep in them.

They offer retreat for the nervous galgos who go into them for respite when new, unknown volunteers arrive to clean their run.
