The RSPCA have released a photograph to Greyt Exploitations of the pregnant greyhound found at Acton Iron near Bristol, to help try and find those guilty of this despicable crime.

As she was found on February 14th – Valentines Day – we have now named her ‘Valentina’.

Although very distressing, the photograph clearly shows the two distinctive white spots on Valentina’s throat and it is hoped that someone will recognise her and come forward with information which would lead to a criminal prosecution.


Rest gently sweetheart ~ you & your babies are now safe from harm

If any member of the public saw people dumping Valentina or think they recognise her, please contact

Gina Harris, Avon & Somerset Greyhound Action – Telephone – 07899 715216

Any information will be treated in the strictest confidence.

If any supporters or members of the public would like a larger image of Valentina to produce leaflets and posters for distribution in the South West region or online please email
