Thank you so much to everyone (all 165+ of you!) who came out to make our Casino Night & Silent Auction such a wonderful event last night. A huge thank you to our sponsors, donors, and volunteers as we wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. And, of course, a big round of applause for our special guest, Tucker Barnes (looking dapper in the photo to the right!)
In less than 24 hours, we’ll be enjoying ourselves at AFH’s Third Annual Casino Night & Silent Auction! Hopefully you’ve gotten your tickets and will be joining us for all the fun and games. If you are attending (or if you’re just curious), here’s the event program. Take a look and stake out the auction items you want to bid on, figure out what all the different color tickets mean, meet our special guest – Tucker Barnes, review our list of sponsors (make sure you stop by their places of business and tell them thanks for supporting AFH!), and get a quick overview of how the gaming will work.
We’re looking forward to a great evening, and hope we’ll see you there!!

All we can say is WOW, What A Year!
AFH does lots of great things every year, but when you see it laid out in a list, it makes you realize that it really is impressive what a group of volunteers can accomplish when they set their minds to it! Take a moment to let that sink in … “a group of volunteers” … without your help, none of this could have happened!
- Almost 1,000 dogs saved
- Participated in three puppy mill rescues
- Helped resolve two hoarding cases
- Over 800 dogs adopted
- 17 goats and two donkeys rescued Continue reading
No better way to spend part of January than in Charleston SC! Jeanne Taylor’s photos for this month were taken on her trip to South Carolina. Click here to see them all! http://www.jtpetpics.com/monthpet.htm

Be sure to watch tomorrow (Thursday, Feb 6) morning to see Julia on Fox 5! While our Julia may not receive the same compensation as Julia Roberts, we’re certain she will be the star of her news segment. Julia will be on with her foster Mom, Kristina, and Dr. Liz Hanson to talk about canine dental health.
February is Pet Dental Health Month, so tune in to catch Julia & Kristina and learn how to recognize the signs of poor dental health and some hints on what you can do to help ensure your pet’s teeth stay in good shape.
We never know exactly what time these segments will air – it depends on so many things that are totally unpredictable. It should be sometime in the 9:00 hour tomorrow morning. Tune in if you have the opportunity, and we would love to hear your feedback over on our Facebook page!
It seems that when people talk sports in DC, it’s almost always the Redskins – if that’s not you, then this person needs no introduction! Alex Ovechkin is the captain of the Washington Capitals (for those who don’t know, the Capitals is Washington’s professional ice hockey team…). Ovechkin is lovingly known as “The Great Eight” (he wears the number 8 jersey) and has been pivotal to the Caps success in the NHL. He has won more awards than you can shake a hockey stick at, you definitely don’t want to be playing goalie against the “O”!
If you’re a hockey fan, AFH has for you an official Ovechkin-signed hockey puck available for you to bid on at the Third Annual Casino Night & Silent Auction event to be held on Saturday, March 8th (like the way we tied in the number 8?) at the Piedmont Club in Haymarket, VA. If you don’t yet have your tickets, what are you waiting for?? Get them today by clicking HERE!
That’s the question that’s been asked over and over again, and the answer is always the same: “I’m going to Disney World!”
You don’t have to be a football superstar to make that trip! Whether your team won the Superbowl or not, YOU have the opportunity to go to Disney World. All you have to do is come to our Third Annual Casino Night & Silent Auction and be the winning bidder for our Disney World vacation package. As an added benefit, you’ll be helping A Forever Home find our forever home at the same time!
If you haven’t yet gotten your tickets, you can get them RIGHT NOW! All it takes is a simple click here and then placing your order…we’ll take care of the rest.
We’re looking forward to a great evening – and we hope to see you there!
