Norma Faulkner, Past President of DABS

Today it was my privilege to attend the funeral of Norma Faulkner, a remarkable lady who passed away recently at the age of 86. Norma was President of DABS, Domestic Animal Birth-Control Society, one of the oldest animal rescue groups in Sydney and I had tremendous admiration for Norma. She was teaching in a High School at the age of 86 until last December, as well as being President of the society and also looking after numerous dogs herself. Apart from this, Norma helped us at Greyhound Rescue when we were trying to get off the ground and nothing was too much trouble for her, she was always willing to help and advise and we will always be very grateful to her for that.

Norma published a number of books, one of them about ‘Blue Star’ the greyhound. She actually rescued a blue greyhound not too long ago and called him Blue Star, who is now happily in a home. The book would make excellent reading for children learning about greyhounds.

Thank you Norma from Greyhound Rescue and all the greyhounds for your help and may you rest in peace.
