🐾❤️ Forever Home Friday ❤️🐾 You may remember the bittersweet story we shared with you of Blakie, who had recently lost his mum, being taken in as an emergency foster by a wonderful couple who had recently lost their beloved greyhound. ow.ly/tglI50Ns7CI Well, now we are delighted to announce that foster has turned into forever - yes, that's right, the adoption papers have been signed! 🎉 His lovely mum says "He’s even started wagging his tail and saying hello to people who stop us to ask about him when we’re out walking. We love him to bits - it was fate that he ended up with us. We healed each other’s broken hearts." We really couldn't have wished for a happier ending to the story, truly a case of serendipidy. 🥰 We wish them all a very happy future together! 💕
🚨🐾 𝗡𝗘𝗪 𝗗𝗢𝗚 𝗔𝗩𝗔𝗜𝗟𝗔𝗕𝗟𝗘! 🐾🚨 We'd like to introduce...SCAMPI! 👋 Scampi is a 4-year-old lurcher girl who is bouncy, playful, loves people and does everything with enthusiasm! She could be homed with another playful dog, or would be just as happy as the only dog. She’s a very friendly girl who may be able to live with older children who could cope with her boisterousness! Scampi is generally an outgoing girl who enjoys trips out and making new friends! She travels well in the car, is comfortable in rural or suburban areas and walks pretty well on-lead, although she can tend to pull when excited. She is full of energy and would suit a fairly active family. Although Scampi is generally very sociable with other dogs, she can be wary around certain dogs. Therefore, she would rather not be walked in areas where dogs might run over to her. If
A huge thank you to our wonderful volunteers Carol, Ross and Katie, who, along with their hounds, ran a Forever Hounds Trust stall at Thriplow Daffodil Festival in Cambridgeshire last weekend. Thank you to their support team too, who helped with the logistics over the weekend.
They not only promoted greyhounds and lurchers as wonderful companions, they raised an amazing total of over £425 for the hounds in our care! To top it all off, one of their Ambassadogs Isaac took first prize in Best Golden Oldie - well deserved we say!
Well done everyone! 👏

We want to say a massive thank you to Laura. She has kindly decided to run the Manchester Marathon (16th April) AND the Bank of America Chicago Marathon (October 8th) to help raise money for the hounds! Laura says "I am running for Forever Hounds Trust because I want more hounds to have the opportunity to find their forever sofas like our grey Arthur. Arthur is supporting my training by showing me the best way to recover post-run, and he likes to show off my medal, pretending he ran a 10k! He can't come to the races, but he will be there for post-race leans and hugs" Can you help superstar Laura reach her target of £1,000? We wish her the very best of luck! www.justgiving.com/fundraising/laura-jelf23
Today is Epilepsy Awareness Day, otherwise known as Purple Day. 💜 It was created to increase the public’s understanding of this brain disorder and to eliminate the fear and stigma surrounding it. The good news is epilepsy can be managed if diagnosed and treated correctly, so awareness and research are important. Dogs can get epilepsy too, so in order to raise awareness of this illness in relation to our canine companions, we asked our supporters for their stories of how they have had to deal with their dog's epilepsy. Click here to read Jenni and Valerie's stories: foreverhoundstrust.org/international-epilepsy-day/ If you are at all worried about your dog, or they have suffered a seizure, please contact your vet immediately. Some useful further reading around epilepsy in dogs can be found here ow.ly/5fPY50NgbJ6 (pictured Evie and Wally)
