SOS Galgos

Anna Clemens and Alberto Sordé own a veterenarian clinic in Barcelona.
They rescue greyhounds from the dog-racetrack and galgos from the rest of Spain.
After these dogs are fully cured from their injuries they are placed in fosterhomes.
The following photographs depict the rescue of 'Silva' in the mountains in the Barcelona area.
