The ‘thank you’ ceremony for all the adoptive and foster families – 8th September 2019
A few shots from the ‘thank you’ ceremony that was held for all the adoptive and foster families of the 65 greyhounds who went to Italy via Pet Levrieri – plus those of 4 of the 71 dogs who went to the UK who were present at the event. Albano Martins, president of Anima Macau, and Christine Dorchak, president of GREY2K USA Worldwide, alongside Stefania Traini, president of Pet Levrieri, presented each family with a ‘Happy at Last’ pendant and thank you card designed by Nellie Doodles to celebrate the successful outcome of the campaign.
One of the most beautiful and moving moments of the whole ‘Macau Greyhounds: Happy at Last’ event was when many of the Macau greyhounds recognised Albano – like a special friend, the one who had made a decisive impact on them at an important time in their lives, and someone who they will never forget. To see all those moments…the look in their eyes when the dogs recognised him, the way they reacted and greeted him, Albano’s eyes filled with emotion….it was one of the most beautiful gifts, out of the many things that this long #SaveTheMacauGreyhounds campaign has given us.
Much joy and emotion in the faces of the adoptive and foster families present too.
Many thanks to Andrea Belloni, professional photographer, for these beautiful pictures.
