Hi, yes I am in Spain.........there are some animal shelters but very, very few.........in the area I live I only know of 4 and and 1 of those is run by some Brits..........when I say area - the Brit one is the nearest and thats 8 miles away. The younger generation is more open to animal rights. Bullfights are only banned in 5 cities, Barcelona just recently, so its a long uphill battle but 5 cities is better than none.
One of the sadest things I witness every day is abandoned dogs
many of the older generation dont believe in neuter/spay, so as you can imagine there lots of puppies, they leave boxes in Brits gardens full of puppies........or even worse
I cant even say.
We have a greyhound stray at the moment - no-one can catch her as she is very, very timid and scared of humans, she is so skinny you can see all her ribs and hip bones
it so sad to see her, she stops to look at me and her eyes tell such a story, oh it makes me cry now
...........I leave water for her, I know another couple who are trying to trap her, they leave her food, so she knows where to go.
But now we are having a problem with some neighbours we say that the food which is left, as she wont eat or approach the food when humans are there, is attracting rats and they shoo the dog away its crazy, they are just trying to rescue her, so the food is the only method really..........."nash of teeth sound"...........its so frustrating..........these people have even thrown away the bowls that this couple have left for the dog
sorry I am ranting now..............and in danger of a thread high-jack
