Beautiful greyhound pup Jack who came to AfG in September 2016 with little lurcher Poppy ( who found her forever home in December 2016) went to his forever home on Easter Sunday. Here he is settling in with one of his new house mates, gorgeous 9 year old Labrador, Diesel. Jack and Poppy enjoyed thier months of care in their foster home with several other dogs and cats so both were very well socialised before they moved into their permenant homes. ... See MoreSee Less

AfG took advantage of the current gorgeous weather and were able to hold car boot stalls this week at Arminghall near Norwich, which is possibly the largest Norfolk car boot sale for Sunday and Wednesday mornings. We have been fortunate to have had some very good items donated to sell so were kept very busy. Also we have the oportunity of raising awareness of our campaign and to encourage people to consider fostering or adopting greyhounds. We were also promoting an upcoming dog show being held in aid of AfG and a local vegan festival/vegan campsite coming up in Norwich. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to Sarah for organising two AfG events on April 1st in Brighton. A great awareness day in the town with great public support in the daytime followed by a peaceful protest outside Brighthon and Hove greyhound stadium in the evening, with many racegoers taking leaflets and taking note of the awareness banners and security not happy with the large group holding the protest and hurridly trying to rush the punters into the staduim. ...

It's always lovely to meet up with our foster and adopted hounds.
Little Lurcher pup Poppy and Greyhound pup Jack came to AfG in September 2016 estimated aged 4 months. Poppy was in a great foster home with Jack and was adopted to a lovely home end of 2016 with housemate Rosie a 14year old collie and Jack is still in his foster home.
Such young hounds of course need to be in homes with people who have plenty of time to give them the care and training they need and of coure we prefer them to have experience of caring for sighthounds.
Little Lurcher Poppy featured here in her forever home with Rosie and curiously meeting another family member just out of hybernation and Jack enjoying fun and freedom over the park.

AfG had a great opportunity for raising awareness for our campaign on Friday March 17th, as we were kindly invited to bring some of our beautiful greyhounds along and to do a talk at the Stalham over 55's Fellowship Club. We had a piece in the Norwich EDP newspaper the day before and the Evening News sent a photographer on the day, so hopfully we will have another newpaper article. Annie Liz and Alan and greyhounds Vinny, Lacey, Zen and Itzy were made very welcome and it was a great atmosphere. 50 club members listened intently to Annie's talk which lasted 45 minutes, she outlined AfG's aims and acheivements, told the survival stories of each greyhound present and of others who have come into our care. Highlighted the serious welfare issues surrounding the greyhounds who are bred for and used by the industry. So now even more people have been made aware of the dark side of greyhound racing and will hopfully carry on spreading the awareness to others.
The club made a very generous £25 cheque donation to AfG and with the other very generous donations made by the club members, the grand total was a fantastic £80 and every member was given an AfG campaign information leaflet.

A' Random act of Kindness'. Just in case this lovely couple have looked on our page. AfG did a stall in Norwich City Centre on Feb 18th and when we parked up for the day, we discovered one of our pound coins was a fake and the machine would not accept it and we had no other money on us and a long way away from the stall. A couple who had parked their car up noticed our predicament and gave us the other pound coin we needed. We thanked them and told them if they went on our stall in the city we could reimburse them with the £1,but they kindly declined the offer and wished us a good day. We gave them an AfG info leaflet to explain what we were doing today. So if you lovely people are reading this...Thank you very much, once again. ... See MoreSee Less

Lucky escape for an Irish greyhound saved from a Chinese meat market.
A very lucky dog out of thousands who do not get saved.
Please pressure the Irish government and the Irish Greyhound Board to cease the export of their greyhounds to such places with no regard for animal welfare. The Irish Industry are not even capable of meeting the welfare needs of their greyhounds in their own country, let alone anywhere else. Thousands of greyhounds bred in Ireland go missing and remain unacounted for and many are found suffering or worse...dead, with the perpertators remaining unpunished.
