AFG’s STALL at DOGS TRUST, NORFOLK. OPEN DAY 05.06.2016
This is the first time we have had a weekend free which coincided with the Dogs Trust Annual Open Day at the Snetterton branch in Norfolk. Absolutely beautiful weather and a great space for our stall.
Hundreds of people visited the event and we met lots of people with rescued sighthounds and other breeds, some of who had been adopted from the Dogs Trust. Our accompanying hounds were kept cool all day wearing our special Cool Houndz wet coats.
The coats, mats and neck bands were on display on our stall along with our other unique merchandise and because it was such a hot day the wet gear proved very popular which boosted our sales. Our other popular feature today was our cuddly toy tombola with all prizes being won by the end of the day.
We received some very generous donations and were able to spread even more awareness with many visitors taking our campaign leaflets.
A great stall today at the very popular busy local car boot sale. The car boot is on Sunday from April until October and is visited by hundreds of locals as well as holiday makers. Many people make a special visit to our stall to see the beautiful hounds who accompany us.
Often we will have a new foster dog with us who are awaiting their forever home, so not only do they receive lots of attention and get well socialised with people and other dogs but there is often a chance they may be met by a future adopter.
Little brindle foster greyhound Kiz was with us today, she has been in the care of Afg for just a short while after coming over to us from Ireland with her brother Vince and she really enjoyed herself. We often have peoples children stay on the stall fussing the hounds instead of walking around the sale with their parents.
