Rebecca Cooper, a restaurant writer from the Washington Business Journal, was asked to participate in Sandwich Madness. This contest required coming up with a sandwich that was sold at his U Street store for one month. Her Cubano sandwich won the contest which allowed her to designate A Forever Home as the recipient of a donation of $2,345!
She chose A Forever Home because she and her husband adopted Princess Leia from our rescue 5 years ago! Congrats and Thanks!
Here are some of the dogs and pups that will be attending: Fred, Simon. (This list is updated all week so check back often.)
Don’t see a dog you are interested in meeting on this list. Feel free to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be forwarded to the foster parent of that dog.
Haughton just celebrated his 9th birthday. He asked his friends to donate items for our doggies instead of presents. What a great kid! Above are pics with him dropping of supplies with his sister and another with everyone at his party. Below is a picture of Haughton as a baby. My how he has grown. Thanks Haughton!
My name is Frankie and I have a broken heart! I’m only ten weeks old and I’m facing a life-saving heart surgery on Valentine’s Day. My friends at AFH are doing all they can, but I really need your help to pull this off. My awesome foster bought a Tiffany & Co. Heart Tag Toggle Bracelet to be raffled off to save my heart. Be my Valentine! My heart is in your hands.
Update 1: Frankie made it through surgery. His doctor said that his heart was in bad shape but he is optimistic that Frankie will make a complete recovery.
Update 2: Frankie’s nurse sent us some pictures from last night and today! She says he’s doing phenomenally and has already had his chest tube removed. He’s also being spoiled completely rotten; the entire staff stops to talk to, pet, and cuddle him whenever they have a second. It looks like he’s in great hands until we bring him home!
Update 3: Jennifer Ramirez Bowman in the lucky winner of our bracelet. Thank you to everyone that contributed to heal Frankie!

Max was able to come up with an ingenious idea of creating a false floor to hold our tables and adoption sign and a two tracks that would hold crates in place along the sides of the van. Not only did they do the construction, but they also sorted through the supplies and now it stays reasonably organized.
We just can’t say enough of how grateful we are to Max and the rest of Troop 695.
