Thanks to all who supported the Hounds Off Our Hares promotion. That’s you who made a purchase or spread the word.
It’s the Hare Preservation Trust who prompted us to create our new logo with Stu Jones at Boo&Stu Digital Design Studio, and Anna Celeste Watson from the Compassion Collective who had the idea then pushed us to make it happen. Also big high-five to Steve Ward for his incredible real-life photographs of hares which we have used, with others, to highlight this cause.
Amazingly we sold 114 t-shirts, hoodies and bags. Sales raised £312 which will be shared between Hounds Off and the Hare Preservation Trust.
We hope that the Hounds Off Our Hares promotion has represented, conveyed and spread our affection for these fabulous, lolloping, nose-twitching, wide-eyed, ever cautious, perfectly proportioned, ears keen, harming none, built-for-speed, always ready to run, stags of the stubble.
Have a lovely day beautiful people.

Our downloadable No Hunting notice has proved popular with people who want to keep hounds off their properties. Until recently Hounds Off provided a fox version. Now we’ve produced one with a hare because a minority of folk still enjoy illegally hunting these magical creatures with packs of beagles, bassets and harriers. For those of you who live in areas plagued by illegal hare coursing, there’s a No Coursing notice too. You can find them all here. We advise downloading, laminating and placing strategically to reinforce your Warning Off email or letter (see Hounds Off Hassle & Cost Free Option or Belt & Braces Approach).
We would like to thank the Hare Preservation Trust for supporting Hounds Off by covering the design and production costs for this development. T-shirts, hoodies and a vehicle window sticker will soon be available too with a credit to that effect.
We’d also like to give a big up to Stu Jones and Anna Celeste Watson aka Boo & Stu Digital Design Studios. They’re part of the Hounds Off team and working closely with them is always productive. We’re pleased with our hare design and hope you approve too.
