Before I became a dog owner, I was unaware of many issues surrounding animal welfare. I learned about the plight of the Spanish Galgo earlier this year. Every year in Spain, thousands of dogs, which have been bred for illegal hunting, are destroyed in the cruelest way at the end of the hunting season. They are thrown down wells, hung from trees by their neck or drowned.
Being a sighthound owner I wonder how anyone can hurt these gentle creatures and so I felt the need to give back. I am an advocate for animal welfare. Throughout the year I run special photo sessions whereby I give part of my session fee to either a local dog shelter or a Galgo charity.
