Home at last – Twelfth Arrival in Italy – Macau Greyhounds

On 13th March the super special golden oldie BANCIAO OF KING and the four greyhounds born in Macau LYN, SUKI, MELLOW and EVITA arrived safely at Milan airport and into our eagerly awaiting arms. After years of imprisonment they will finally know the taste of freedom and find out what it means to be loved and respected.

Five special adoptive families were there to welcome them. Here is the album of photos of their arrival, meeting their families, having a warm shower and being dressed in comfy elegant warm coats, and experiencing the warmth of a loving welcome.

Happy new beginnings to LYN, SUKI, MELLOW, EVITA and BANCIAO OF KING and your forever families!

You’re home at last!

So now 60 greyhounds are safe and sound in Italy and 145 in Europe (UK, Italy, France and Germany). Today 19th March only 24 greyhounds are left in the Canidrome. This means 494 have been re-homed (92.9%)!

The last day of greyhounds living in Canidrome will be 26th March. That day the Canidrome will be emptied definitively! Huge heartfelt thanks to Albano Martins.

Thanks to all the Pet Levrieri associate members and friends who have helped and supported the international transport and adoption plan of the Macau greyhounds. Thanks to all our adoptive and foster families. Thanks to Dida Cx and the whole team of volunteers who prepared the dogs for the journey.
Thank you to Mandy of Anima for her organizational support. A special thanks to all the volunteers caring for the greyhounds at the Macau Canidrome.

The old ones

The old ones

Now that this long journey is drawing to a close, we cannot help thinking about one particular aspect of it which should not go unnoticed, for if it is true that the successful outcome of this whole campaign has never been a given, it is even more true that managing to get the older dogs to safety has been nothing short of a miracle. It has been one more dream to come true despite all the difficulties, but this hasn’t just been down to good luck. In order to bring to safety these dogs of 12 or even 13 years old and offer them a second chance from thousands of miles away, very specific decisions had to be made, options weighed and precautions taken.

Of course we would never presume to think that this was all thanks to us: the sheer will to live of these older dogs, who never gave up despite everything they had been through, has been a crucial factor. Nevertheless, we can be proud of not having left anyone behind, and of having always and in any case tried to do the best for all of them, and above all for the weakest among them.

This has been thanks to the whole team but above all – it has to be said – to Albano Martins, a man of uncommon self abnegation, passion, clarity of vision and diplomatic and strategic skills. I think that meeting such a person has been one of the best things ever to happen to me in my life.

Now we must finish the job: the few dogs left at the Canidrome must be moved, and those who have left must all be adopted.

As far as the older ones are concerned, our duty is to do our utmost and more to ensure that every day is an amazing day for them, because every single day is precious. We cannot defeat death, but we can – and we should – try to make every moment of their lives unforgettable. 

It’s about love, but even more about respect, because we all know that each of them is precious and very much worth cherishing.

We should also cherish the equally precious memory of those who never made it: perhaps we should set up a memorial day to remember them all, a day dedicated to the Martyrs of the Canidrome, a day in which to strengthen the bonds between them and us.

AN UNFORGETTABLE DAY!

AN UNFORGETTABLE DAY!

Today 13th March was a truly memorable day, as super special golden oldies WIN’S EASY, LUCKY FOREVER, JOLLIE, SURF COMET and PENHA arrived safely at Milan airport and into our eagerly awaiting arms.

WIN’S EASY and LUCKY FOREVER are 13 years old, and JOLLIE, SURF COMET and PENHA are all over 10.
After all these years of imprisonment they will finally know the taste of freedom and find out what it means to be loved and respected.

Five special adoptive families were there to welcome them.

It was such a joy for all of us to see them sniff the grass, look around in amazement, enjoy cuddles in the sun and follow a rolling ball with curiosity. These super oldies really are the ambassadors of all the Macau greyounds, survivors with an amazing fighting spirit.

All of the Macau greyhounds, survivors of that concentration camp, are brave and sensitive dogs with an extraordinary resilience – and those of us who have had the privilege of caring for or adopting one have experienced first hand the truth of those words.

Their courage and sensitivity mirrors that of their champion Albano Martins, who has since 2011 been the leader of this extraordinary worldwide campaign which brought about the closure of the Canidrome and the rescue of the 532 greyhounds detained there.

Happy new beginnings to WIN’S EASY, LUCKY FOREVER, JOLLIE, SURF COMET, PENHA and your forever families!

You’re home at last!
