GALGOS ARE COMING!
On Sunday, October 12, Steel City Greyhounds and SOS
Galgos will be partners across the pond once again and set out to
rescue four galgos. The four lucky galgos will have a new leash on life
in Pittsburgh as they journey from the streets of southern Spain, to
foster homes in Barcelona, travel via motorway from Barcelona to Paris,
and ultimately fly to Pittsburgh on the trans-Atlantic flight. Anyone
interested in adopting must apply through the SCG adoption application.
Fee for adopting a galgo will be a minimum of $400 to help defray the
cost of transport kennel, airline fees as per Delta airlines, and
veterinary vaccines/procedures from both Tres Veterinary Clinic in
Barcelona and Point Breeze Veterinary Clinic in Pittsburgh.
