Here is picture of me and my dog I adopted from AFH!
Leah, we are so proud of you! This funds you raised will help with our mommy dog Heidi who just had a $4,000 surgery to save her and her pups during a dangerous pregnancy. Thank you for adopting one of our babies and for helping so many more!
Dear A Forever Home – My name is Galway (you knew me as Skye). I wanted to reach out to you to say thank you — my puppy parents tell me that it is a little bit past the five year anniversary of my “gotcha” day. I’ve come a long way from my North Carolina days (I was one of dogs that was part of the puppy mill rescues that arrived around Valentine’s Day in 2013). These days, I spend my leisure time sunning myself, hanging out with my brother Guinness, and also rooting for my favorite sports teams. Can you guess my pick for the Final Four? #GoBlue. So thank you for all you do in finding homes for dogs like me.
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 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!
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!
