AFG STREET COLLECTION/AWARENESS DAY HAYMARKET and GENTLEMAN’S WALK, NORWICH 05.09.2015

We were lucky enough to have a dry day, although a little chilly, but meant the City was very busy all day, so such a great opportunity for us to have such a successful day.

Non-stop awareness raised with constant interest from the public and off course our beautiful hounds received so much attention throughout the day.

One particular couple expressed a great interest in our little foster lurcher pup Fiz, asking many questions about her and spending lots of time with her and this resulted the following day in them contacting us with serious interest in adopting her.

We never know who we are going to meet and what stories we will hear from people at our events, so this is another interesting aspect of our public campaign events.

 
 

AFG AWARENESS/FUNDRAISING WEEKEND PETS AT HOME HALL ROAD,NORWICH 12 and 13.09.2015

We are always given a great space outside the store for our shelter to accommodate accompanying hounds.
A very busy weekend with lots of awareness raised.

Lots of people fell in love with AfG foster lurcher pup Fiz, but because we met a couple at an event earlier in the month, this resulted in confirmation of her adoption, so she will soon be going to her new home.

We had a lot of interest in our new range of Cool Houndz wet coats which the hounds wore on the Saturday afternoon once the weather became hot.

 
 

AFG STALL AT SPROWSTON PARK AND RIDE SITE,NORWICH 20.09.2015
Another lovely day at this very popular local car boot sale which opens to the public at 10am which is why it is called Lazy Boots Car Boot Sale.

Lovely pitch on hard standing which keeps everything so much cleaner.

We are always popular here and even if people don’t find a bargain they always stop and fuss the hounds and make donations in our collection pots.

We manage to distribute lots of our awareness leaflets here too as the site is always visited by newcomers as well as regulars.

 
 

AFG’s MONTLHY STALL AT CHARITY STALL ON HAYMARKET,NORWICH 26.09.2015

We have been having regular monthly stalls at this very popular market stand in the heart of the City of Norwich for over 15 years now. It is provided for charities and good causes who are mostly local to Norfolk.

Usually we are here on either the 3rd or 4th Saturday of the month and very occasionally on a Sunday and a weekday (which is usually on a Thursday).

The popularity and success of these stalls we do is down to all the quality items which are regularly donated for us to sell.

We only have limited space on the stall so we try to select items we feel will be of interest to everyone and we have selected items of our unique merchandise for sale here too, not to mention our campaign awareness leaflets.

We are able to have hounds accompany us in the Spring and Summer and on occasions in Autumn if the weather is mild.

 
 

AFG STALL AT CATTON PARK FUNDAY and DOG SHOW CATTON,NORWICH 27.09.2015

This is the third year for this ever growing popular event and AfG have had a stand at each one. Gets busier every year and great to have it on the last Sunday of September as it gives people a chance to get over the long Summer holidays and get their children settled back into school and look forward to an event which has something for everyone.

Each year there are more stalls and more space is taken up, and luckily enough the weather has always been so lovely.

Many visitors were unaware of Catton Park and commented on what a beautiful place it is.

Our hounds on our stall seemed a little confused as they are used to having a good run over the park instead of being in one place.
