On such a glorious Sunday, we decided to have the AfG stall with some of our hounds at the very busy, popular car boot sale at Sprowston, Norwich.
Our hounds all have their own little ' fan clubs' now each one being ' someones favorite' due to their individual personalities and great characters. They recieve constant attention from so many people and children which makes the day so enjoyable for the hounds as well as people learning about what amazing animals greyhounds are.

Due to some extremely bad weather, AfG's week of awareness/fundraising at Roys of Wroxham turned out to be 2 half days and 3 full days, but in that time we were able to raise so much awareness by issuing hundreds of our leaflets, we met some lovely people, both locals and holiday makers from all over the country.
We met some of their rescued greyhounds and other breeds and others showed us photos of their beautiful rescued dogs.
It is so encouraging to hear so many people say they believe greyhound racing should be banned and hear them telling their children how cruel it is.
Of course our beautiful hounds who acompanied us helped raise more awareness when people heard their individual rescue stories and needless to say they all enjoyed the constant attention they received.

On July 10th 2017 AfG took Into our care a 13 year old lurcher, now named Daisy. She was in season, had an old untreated injury to her hock and hip and hardly any veterinary records were available for her.
She settled in to her foster home with her greyhound and cat housemates.
On Saturday July 22nd she quickly became very ill with a temperature of 104.
Luckily one of our fantastic supporters, Jack was on hand to pick up Daisy with her foster carer Stacey and rush her to our vet.
She could not move or stand.
Luckily our vet was able to carry out the emergency opperation on Daisy straight away.
She had Pyometra a womb infection, her reproductive organs were infected and full of fluid and puss.
Luckily with the expertese of AFGs vet and the dedication of her foster carer, Daisy has now made a full recovery and we now hope she will enjoy her twighlight years in her permenant foster home. where she is thoroughly loved and spoiled.
Photo 2 is Daisy recovering after her op.

A perfect day to end such a poignant weekend of remembering all the greyhounds who have lost their lives to the greyhound racing industry, the pups, the ones who did not make the grade, the ones killed after track injuries and the ones who are unacounted for.

AfGs second day of our Greyhound Remembrance weekend was our awareness pitch at Norwich Cathedral, Cloisters, Sunday July 23rd.
We were kindly invited again this year to attend this annual event, which is a Celebration of Animals with an Animal Blessing.
There were various animals present from local rescue centres, including heavy horses, donkeys, goats, sheep,ferrets, dogs and cats as well as members of the public with their various pets.
Our 10 beautiful hounds, including dear little Litza a 3 legged little hound rescued after a life of abuse in Greece received constant attention and admiration.
We are awaiting more photos from the blessing of the animals.

We were accompanied by several greyhound survivors..the lucky ones who were saved and found wonderful homes..unlike the thousands of unaccounted for and the ones who have been destroyed after track injuries etc. These we will hold deep in our memories this weekend. We are overwhelmed with the fantastic support we received from the public and very encouraged to see children and teenagers taking such a genuine interest in our campaign. ... See MoreSee Less

IT'S HERE ...AfGs New awareness campaign for 2017/2018.
Due to the success of our cinema ad at the Hollywood cinema Yarmouth the campaign has now got even BIGGER.
From 12.07.17 for 12 months,' Where Have all the Greyhounds Gone ? 'will be giving out a strong message to a captive audience.
Showing in all 13 screens ( soon to have 5 more screens added over the next 6 months) before every film, every day for the next 12 months at the Showcase cinema, Bluewater shopping centre, Dartford, within the catchment area of 3 licensed greyhound tracks. Annual veiwing figure 1.3 million.
And the same for the 16 screen Empire cinema( We believe now renamed Cine World), the Metro Centre, Newcastle, within the catchment area of the 3 greyhound tracks. Annual veiwing figure just over 1 million.
We are now creating a second film which will be alternated with this film over the year, allowing us to portray even more information......then....a 3rd film with more information will be created and so on...and so on.

Today July 10th AfG have taken a beautiful lurcher into our care. Daisy is the oldest hound to come into our care to date, at age 13 years.
She has been living outside for approx the past 3 years.
We have decided she needs to be comfortably settled now and spend the rest of her twighlight years in a permanent foster home with her greyhound housemate Dove and cat Enya and will be be thoroughly spoiled and live in comfort.
Afg will fund the cost of her care.
Her condition was not as bad as what we are often used to considering her age, apart from an old untreated injury to her back hock and hip ( which will later be examined by our vet).
Hopefully the fact that she is in season and seems to be right in the middle stage and at her most receptive wont cause too much of a problem for her foster carer.
Hopefully in 3 months time AfG's vet will be able to neuter Daisy.
As you can see, she has quickly made herself at home...looking perfectly contented and happy.

AfG are fortunate to be once again invited to be charity partnered with pets at Home Sprowston, Norwich.
What a great start to the first of our four awareness/fundraising weekends on July 1st and 2nd, at our local store where we are so popular with the customers.
We were kept so busy and of course our many foster and adopted hounds received so much affection and admiration over the event.
On Sunday we were joined by Rosemary from AfG Sheffield who took a day out of her Norfolk holiday to help and we all fell in love with her new adopted greyhound Jet.
Sadly Rosemary and her family lost their beautiful black greyhound Sean.
it wasnt ling before they decided they had to adopt another unwanted greyhound.
On Sunday we were also joined by little rescued whippet Frankie and a newly rescued Spanish Galgo, Rocco.

Afg had an amazing day of awareness and fundraising in Norwich City Centre Saturday June 24th, due to overwhelming public support and generosity
. We usualy have several of our adopted and foster hounds with us on our events, so today was no exception and of course the hounds enjoy all the attention they receive from the public.
Dry but changable weather on the day so as the welfare of our hounds is always our top priority we were laden with cool coats, fleeces and rain macs and parasoles to keep them all comfortable for the day.
We issued 100's of our campaign awareness leaflets and met some lovely people who told us stories and showed us photos of their rescued greyhounds and other animals..
