AN AMAZING EVENT & G.R.I.N ATTENDED!
Animal Rights Conference 2009, Los Angeles CA.. July 17-19
Galgo Rescue International Network attended their first Animal Rights Conference 2009 in Los Angeles CA.
Along with well know animal rights causes, GRIN established their cause as one worthy of national and international awareness. The turnout was huge and there was lots of interest in what is happening in Spain and how GRIN has been helping to support existing shelters in Spain while public awareness is beginning to spread within its own country to the general public.
Many people were not aware of the treatment of Galgos, Podencos and other hunting dogs in Spain and applauded our efforts to raise awareness. We meet people from all over the US, Canada and even Spain.
The four day conference was attended by Keiko Krahnke, Julie Krahnke, Telma Shaw, Wally Lacey and Don and Elaine Irving.
Many people asked about how they could adopt a Galgo also.
We continue to suggest that raising awareness, perseverance and an international team effort is what can make a difference in the future for the Galgos as it has for the racing Greyhounds here in the U.S. over the years.
Compassion has no boundaries, the Galgos need our voices.
