Spanish hounds need pet passports
10:40am Wednesday 3rd October 2012 in News
AN animal charity have been saying ‘hola’ to two pooches looking for homes after they were flown over from Spain.
Pastor, aged five, and Suzi, aged 2, needed their pet passports to leave the Murcia region and head to kennels at Warrington Animal Welfare after a southern England rescue charity saved them from appalling conditions in a Spanish sanctuary.
Janet Thornton, from the charity, said: “We had heard from a long-time supporter of the charity there were dogs in poor conditions and only getting three 15 minute walks a week.
“Pastor had been at the sanctuary for three years and we found someone had cut his ears.
“We’re seeing a lot of dogs being dumped in Spain as ex-pats return home due to the financial situation.
“We hope we can find a good home for Suzi as Pastor has already found a home and if it works we hope to bring more dogs over from Spain.”
