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..

They were very concerned that a special fathers day race meeting was being held on the hottest day of the year.
There are people who love greyhound racing and people who love greyhounds.....it is easy to see here which is which.

AfG had a very busy day of fundraising and awareness on our monthly charity stall on Haymarket, Norwich. Of course the welfare of our accompanying hounds, as always, was our top priority, which is why they were kept in a shaded area and wore their wet coats and neck bands. Our unique CooL HoundZ wet garments proved very popular, as not only did they benefit our hounds greatly but they also did a great job promoting them with many garments being sold today and further orders on our website, so many more hounds will be kept cool and comfortable during the current heatwave. ...

AfG had another great weekend of awareness/fundraising.
This weekend June 3rd and 4th at Norwich Jollyes pet superstore. Great support by the very friendly, helpful staff and Jollyes customers and other shoppers from the shopping estate were very supportive of our cause.
We visit various venues across Norfolk and Suffolk for our awareness events as well as having individuals and groups over the country holding AfG fundraising awareness events so the awareness/education is spreading far and wide in the hope even more people will choose not to support greyhound racing.

Greyhound racing is in steady decline..worldwide.
Most people do not want to support anything which involves, animal exploitation, mass overbreeding, uneccesary cruelty and suffering, the destruction of young healthy unwanted animals and the same of any animal which is not profitable. So it's no good the Irish government investing Irish taxpayers money ( taxpayers who have no choice of how thier taxes are used and do not want them used for this industry) in such a cruel industry that has no concern for the welfare of their animals.

AfG had a very successful day In Norwich yesterday with our charity stall. Gorgeous weather meaning the City was packed all day and being a Bank holliday weekend we met many visitors as well as locals. It is so encouraging hearing people NOW TELLING US!! how bad the greyhound racing industry is, meaning the awareness is getting out loud and clear.
Our beautiful hounds were kept comfy and cool in the heatwave with their cool houndz coats, which gathered a lot of interest with people wanting to know where they could purchase them from etc.

Many thanks to Julie and all who helped her organise the fantastic Fun Dog Show at Caister on Sea, Sunday May 14th in aid of AfG.
Also thanks go to all the people who helped promote the event by distributing the posters and to all the companies and individuals who donated such fantastic prizes to the grand raffle and class placements.
There was an amazing turn out with hounds of all shapes and sizes.
The AfG stall was kept very busy all day, allowing us to raise vital funds and awareness.
There was plenty of greyhound awareness, as Kerry Greyhounds UK also had a large stall there and there were various other stalls meaning the whole event had something for everyone.
It was lovely to meet up with some of the AfG adopted hounds and to see so many other happy adopted greyhounds from other rescues.
Thanks to Caister Lifeboat Station for allowing the marvelous venue for the show.

AfG aim to raise vital awareness and funds when and where ever we can. Sunday April 23rd was a glorious day for our stall at one of our local car boot sales, Arminghall, near Norwich. The lovely weather means lots of customers. We often find children prefer to stay on the stall to give our beautiful hounds lots of fuss while their parents look around the sale. Being constantly among the general public we get acces to lots of useful information. Today we gave a pack of leaflets to a lady who wants to stop her work colleagues planning a night at the local greyhound track.....lets hope she is sucessful. ... See MoreSee Less

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.
