Spain is one of the few countries where hunting with greyhounds is a legal activity. This activity was a form of sustenance for the family in the rural areas, but now using greyounds to hunt isn’t vital.  That’s why it has reinvented itself and it’s now turned into sport preserving its practice within the cultural tradition of the country.

At the end of the hunting season, in February, dogs that are not useful for it, whether due to injury, lack of competitiveness or age, are abandoned. In the worst cases they are eliminated using very aggressive practices in many cases the hanging.

Shelters try to care as many of these abandoned dogs as possible, often reaching unfortunate and overpopulated conditions. The Spanish legislation is not very strict on the animal section and allows this situation to continue to develop every year.
