AFG STREET COLLECTION/AWARENESS DAY HAYMARKET and GENTLEMANS WALK, NORWICH 03.09.2016

We had a very successful day very well supported by the public and raised vital funds and awareness.

Glorious weather meaning we could be accompanied by many of our beautiful hounds including foster greyhounds Grace and Vincent (aka Vinny).

Vinny took a fancy to brindle girl Fran, he spent the day making sure he was next to her.

 

AFG COLLECTION & AWARENESS WEEKEND PETS AT HOME SPROWSTON, NORWICH 10&11.09.2016

Another lovely weekend at this very busy popular store who AfG are charity partnered with this year.

We were joined by several rescued greyhounds as well as 4 other rescued hounds, Zoi a Chinese Crested, Suki a terrier cross, Molly a bearded Collie cross and Litza a small 3 legged cross breed rescued from Greece after a life of abuse.

All receiving lots of admiration and attention from the public.

 

AFG MONTHLY CHARITY STALL HAYMARKET, NORWICH 17.09.2016

Another very busy day in the City centre with lovely weather.

We had lots of lovely items on sale which had been very kindly donated as well as our ever growing unique merchandise and of course we are able to carry on raising awareness having our campaign materials available on the stall.

 

AFG STALL AYLSHAM CAR BOOT SALE 24.09.2016

A lovely weekend to get out to some local car boot sales.
We like to have stalls at various car boot sales across Norfolk and Suffolk as it allows us to meet more people and therefore raise awareness of AfG further afield and as we usually have foster hounds accompanying us people are able to meet them so another opportunity of meeting prospective foster carers and adopters.

 

AFG STALL SPROWSTON PARK AND RIDE CAR BOOT SALE, NORWICH 25.09.2016

Another car boot stall this weekend at the Sunday sale starting at 10am from Easter until end of October. A lovely clean site on hard standing ground meeting lots of regular local visitors as well as visitors from all over Norfolk and Suffolk.

The hounds are always so popular with children and they enjoy the attention with the children stroking them. Often parents will leave their children with the hounds while they look round the sale and come back for them later, so the hounds are never short of attention and the children learn about each hound and their individual stories.

Always good to promote rescuing animals to children as well as the awareness of the exploitation and suffering many greyhounds endure.

 

AFG STREET COLLECTION/AWARENESS DAY HAYMARKET/GENTLEMANS WALK, NORWICH 30.09.2016

We were fortunate enough to change our upcoming Saturday event for today, Friday due to the bad weather forecast for tomorrow.

So we had a glorious day accompanied by many hounds including foster greyhound Vince (aka Vinny) now quite used to the events and new foster greyhound Lacey who soon got settled at the event, especially with her being so affectionate and attention seeking, so of course she loved the constant attention she received throughout the day.

As usual we had great support from the public.
