We have recently received several complaints concerning news reporting supposedly attributed to “Forever Home.”
We want to make everyone aware that, even though we were – as far as we could determine when we started the group back in 2002 – the first “Forever Home” rescue group around, there are now many groups out there with very similar names. Unfortunately, some of these groups don’t adhere to the same standards of conduct that we here at AFH do. There have been two cases, recently, in Virginia (caution – the content linked to below may be upsetting for some readers):
Please understand that these groups have no affiliation with the A Forever Home Rescue Foundation (AFH) located in Chantilly, VA. AFH, whose site you are currently viewing, takes pride in providing superior care to the animals in our custody. We find the conduct of these other supposed “rescue groups” absolutely abhorrent and hope that the authorities in each of these (and similar) cases are able to punish the perpetrators and ensure that this type of behavior is not allowed to continue.
