We travelled next to Cordoba, arriving late evening but were able to have a meeting with Sandra Baas of Baasgalgo. Fernando, who manages the shelter, and Florence who is from Belgium, but had travelled to Spain to work at the shelter for a week, joined us. Also Bartolome of Club Nacional del Galgo Espanol was able to be present for part of the meeting.

Sandra told us that the current Baasgalgo shelter suffered severe flooding last year and initially they wanted to carry out work to avoid this happening again but unless the local government carry out other work in the area the problem will not be resolved. They have therefore decided to buy some land in Toledo and set up a shelter there. They feel there will be more security for their association if they own the land and over time, and when funds permit, they can expand the shelter. Much hunting goes on in the Toledo area so the abandonment of the galgos is huge; in fact many of the galgos from Toledo end up at the Baasgalgo shelter now.
Sandra talked through her plans with us; she is actually based in Madrid and works tirelessly on campaigning for a better life for the galgos. She has many well-known people helping her to raise awareness of the galgo's plight. She is currently working on a book of fairy tales. Well known artists and writers are contributing to this and it is hoped that, once published, this will raise much needed funds for the work of Baasgalgo.
Sandra and her organisation have a lot to do before the shelter in Toledo can become a reality not least looking after 70 galgos at their current shelter. We have asked Sandra to keep us informed on this project as we feel we may be able to help with this in the future.

We recently sent some donated coats, treats, blankets to Sandra for the dogs and it was good to see some of these being worn.

For this reason, Sandra Baas, President of BaasGalgo decided to start a project with a double-edge purpose: one, to protect and offer these animals a second chance by finding them a new home, and two, rescue them from the streets and highways so that they don't cause problems should they wander onto the shoulder. According to the DBT (traffic bureau), in 2008 these dogs provoked 300,000 accidents.
In an effort to help the Greyhounds, Sandra created a line of jewelery whose benefits go to the association. She is also associated with celebrities such as Rossy de Palma,
