Many years ago after I had worked together with GINB for the calendar I came in contact again with Mireille and her fantastic team. My friend and I had already a few four-legged in the house but we had not yet adopted a dog. To surf once to the GINB website was enough to be completely convinced. The story of the dogs who unfortunately are still the victims of cruel traditions broke my heart. It felt good to give a dog a chance for a beautiful life and to be surrounded by people that would spoil him with a lot of love. James has been with us for a year now. A year in which he flourished completely. A year in which he stole my heart. In the meantime we also adopted puppy Olivia and she also started a real conquest. Gradually I got to know Mireille and her team better and my respect and admiration is great! I am happy and pleased that I become the godmother of this organization.
The suffering and the cruel life of a lot of Spanish greyhounds touches everyone including me. Why downgrade dogs to racing machines? Why dump these suffering animals after services rendered? The worse the dogs perform, the crueler they are tortured and killed. It is incomprehensible. Fortunately, there are people with a heart for these animals, who try to stop these practices. I admire the commitment and hard work of Greyhounds in Nood! More than 6500 galgos and greyhounds have been saved from hell and they found a warm home in Belgium. Unfortunately there still remain many fellow sufferers that need to be saved. All help and support is badly needed. With great pleasure and out of love for these dogs I give my full support.
As the GINB godfather I will fight for a dignified life for all galgos and greyhounds.
