We’re Heading To Spain To Protect Greyhounds!
Later this week, three SPCA International representatives will arrive in Barcelona, Spain to join forces with other animal welfare activists and organizations to march in protest of the horrific brutality against Spanish Greyhounds, a.k.a. galgo. The march takes place on Saturday, June 13th and will culminate with the protesters arrival at the main government office building in Barcelona. The march route is symbolic of the agony that Spanish Greyhounds endure and the outcry will be made by charities, adopters and animal advocates, demanding that the authorities take measures to put an end to this situation once and for all.

SPCA International plans to bring a petition against cruelty to Spanish Greyhounds signed by 69,000 concerned citizens of the world. Protesters will carry signs that read “The World Is Watching” to show the international attention this terrible cruelty is receiving. More About the Protest

Hey, Did You Know?
hippos_135x125.557848831ba6917480.jpgA hungry, hungry hippo is right…a hippo may eat up to 150 pounds (68 kilograms) of grass a night! The hippo's nose, ears, and eyes are on the top of its head, and they protrude from the water while the rest of its head and its body lies beneath the surface. That way a hippo can breathe, see, and hear even while its body is submerged, mainly so it can stay cool in the hot climate it lives in. When a hippo sinks completely underwater, its nose and ears automatically close so that no water seeps in. Hippos are excellent swimmers and can hold their breath for about five minutes. They can even walk along the bottoms of rivers and lakes!
