Update: After waiting almost a year Rigo and his companion Rufo have made it from the rigors of life in Spain to the good life in the U.S. See original story. http://galgorescue.org/2011/09/rigo-rufo-and-zeus-coming-to-the-u-s-a/
Nov 2, 2011 We want to thank Fern Sinclair her friend Amy Christopher from Ohio for completeing their mission to fly to Spain, meet up with Sandra Baas of Association Baas Galgo in Cordoba, pick up Fern’s galgo Zeus as well as another galgo named Churrita from the shelter, then head back to Madrid airport to meet our G.R.I.N galgos Rufo and Rigo coming from Galgo Connection Spain. All the dogs did exceptionally well on the trip and are transitioning into their new lives in the U.S. A special thanks to Sandra Baas for helping with transport and hospitality and to Galgo Connection Spain’s volunteer Vicente who drives the dogs to Madrid for Silvia. Fern’s determination to adopt Zeus who she saw on Sandra’s Face Book page was fantastic! Within one month she had arranged a fundraiser to help defray the costs for the rescue , succeed at bringing back four galgos for the first time and her happy ending with Zeus in his forever home is truly a wonderful and heartwarming story! Thank you to everyone involved and to our donors who without your help, Rufo and Rigo would not have had the opportunity to be rescued!
