Yo Galgo is an award winning documentary film about an invisible genocide taking place while the authorities look the other way. It’s an exposé of the sharp divide between animal rights and the traditions of a nation.

Watch and share our documentary for free

We've made our documentary available to the public at no cost until the Spanish Government votes on the amendment to their animal welfare law, which would remove the protection hunting dogs deserve. We want to inform you about these dogs' immense suffering and do our part to prevent it.

Please share our film "Yo Galgo" to help people understand the cruelty and constant abuse galgos face in Spain. Join the campaign #MismosPerrosMismaLey (Same Dogs, Same Law) and be a voice for these incredible animals.

A story never told

Once raised only by Spanish noble families, the Galgo has had a remarkable fall from grace, yet their story is relatively unknown worldwide. Even in Spain, their plight is often unheard of or, worse, ignored.

The unregulated and mass-scale breeding, the cruelty associated with breed selection, and the opaque use of public land for hunting made it hard for an outsider to access the world of Galgo hunting. However, with the help of his Galgo Bacalao, the director and cameraman Yeray López Portillo could enter and be accepted within the hunting circles in rural Spain to reveal previously unheard stories and testimonies. The film examines the hunter’s perspective and the people fighting to end Galgo hunting.


From the beginning, we understood that this film could and should become an international piece, but we did not expect so much interest when we started opening up the project to the public.

To increase the impact of the documentary once finished, we decided to create digital meeting points in which to share opinions and network. We started on Instagram and Facebook, which soon took off with tens of thousands of friends.

In collaboration with the NGO World Animal Protection Netherlands and our friends from our social platforms, we collected more than 100.000 signatures demanding the Spanish Government to ban hunting with galgos. Yo Galgo has been contacted by European parliamentarians, both in Spain and in Germany, as well as lobbyists in The Hague, in an attempt to bring this issue to the European chamber. Yo Galgo collaborated with the NGO “No a la Caza con Galgo y otras Razas” to coordinate and promote demonstrations in favour of protecting the galgo in 31 Spanish cities and another 10 around the world.

Long story short, we are very grateful for all the awareness that we are contributing to raising about the plight of these dogs.

Yo Galgo was produced in collaboration with literally thousands of people who crowdfunded with us, shared our project, and participated with their talents so this story could see the light of day. I will be eternally thankful to all of them. They showed me that films like this one, having the animal and nature front and centre, are possible.

#FreeTheGalgo 2021

What if you had the power to change the world with a single image? This year, Monday, February 1st, was 'World Galgo Day'. This date also marks the end of the Spanish hunting season every year. Please watch our trailer below if you don't know what that means.

Please lend your voice to help raise awareness of the suffering of thousands of galgos by posting a picture of your pet (or yourself) alongside a sign that reads #FreeTheGalgo.

If you don't have a pet, or the possibility of creating an image for #freethegalgo campaign, here we have prepared more than twenty images that you can use. They are yours.

Collaboration with Mini Rodini

We are thrilled to bring the Galagos story to the younger generations (and their parents!) in collaboration with Mini Rodini. With their new collection, “Save the Galgo”, 20% of the price of each item sold will be donated to the rescue organization Galgos del Sol in Spain.

It is key to understand why it’s necessary to save the Galgo and reach new audiences that otherwise would not know about it. That’s why MoonLeaks collaborates with different groups from different fields to bring stories to the public.

Watch it, share it, and help raise awareness! The galgos need us!

Education, awareness, and creative collaborations to fight the abuses being committed to animals are key parts of our concept.
