If you are a greyhound lover you will no doubt have heard about other similar breeds of working sight hounds from around the World. I am excited to announce that from April 2016 I will be sending all my pattern revenue collected in my PayPal account, which is literally everything, to Galgos Del Sol.
They are a charity in Spain who rescue, rehabilitate and rehome Galgos and Podencos (Spanish Hunting Dogs similar to greyhounds) who are bred and used for a short season of hunting and then discarded on the streets of Spain. Galgos del Sol is based in Murcia and you can read all about their adventures and stories of individual rescues from their website: http://www.galgosdelsol.org.
I chose Galgos del Sol to support because they have been so overwhelmed by the number of dogs that need help and are working to raise funds to build a new modern rehoming centre which will incorporate an educational program to spread the word about these lovely gentle creatures who despite such a sorry start in life end up making wonderful pets.
Anyway, if you would like to support them as well as enjoy Erssie patterns, then from tomorrow, April 1st 2016, all proceeds from sales of my patterns will be forwarded to Galgos Del Sol and I would love to be I am not working but I still have many designs that can go to work on their own and raise some small amounts of cash for Galgos del Sol.
Galgos del sol have a YouTube Channel where you can find out about individual dogs. They also have a very good video interview with the founder, Tina, explaining the need for a centre.
I look forward to posting more news about Galgos Del Sol in the future and when I am feeling a little better, I will be adding new projects to help raise more money for this charity.
