Welcome to A Forever-Home Rescue Foundation
A Forever Home Rescue Foundation is rescuing 58 small dogs (Maltese, Havanese, Yorkies, Shih Tzus) right now! The van has returned this evening. Apparently the owner of these dogs has passed away and the family dumped some at the shelter. As there was no room for all these dogs, AFH agreed to jump in and help to keep them from being euthanized.
AFH is still in desperate need of donations and fosters now! We recently rescued another group of dogs from a backyard breeder in Virginia that has already cost us thousands of dollars and we really need additional funds to help these dogs, as well as foster homes.
If you can help, please donate online by clicking on the JustGive icon.
or send a check to A Forever Home Rescue Foundation, PO Box 222801, Chantilly, VA 20153. Please mark your donation “Valentine Maltese”.
If you can foster, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are able to donate or foster, please do so asap. Please forward this message widely.
A HUGE thank you for everyone that helped out at the Pet Fiesta. It was a great day and the weather was just perfect -not too hot and sticky for the dogs. Our foster dogs put on a great show, patiently waiting for pets and hugs. We had a number of adoptions from this event and got some new volunteers as well. We also took in some badly needed donations. It was such a fun event and we hope to come back and do it again next year.
We will not be having an adoption event Sunday May 26 due to the Memorial Day Holiday. Enjoy your long weekend and we will see you the next week at our regular time with plenty of dogs and pups for you to meet.
April photo selections from Jeanne Taylor are available at http://www.jtpetpics.com/monthpet.htm. She writes: It couldn’t be helped – there were so many awesome appointments in April, I was not able to choose a favorite ~ litte dogs, big dogs … a little person, teenagers, (adults with their pets too!) and even horses. Hope you enjoy a quick peek at my month, as much as I enjoyed living it!Also, a couple of quick notes:
- Gift certificates are a great gift idea (Mother’s or Father’s Day, wedding, graduation, etc.)! They can be issued in any denomination or packaged to offer exactly the products you wish. Please contact me a few days ahead of time to ensure prep and delivery time.
- Scheduling: Now booking weekends into July. Weekend appointments tend to fill first – if you want to schedule and have weekday flexibility, great — but if you need a weekend, let’s get you on the calendar sooner than later.
- Spring Puppy Special expires 5/31/2013 – details are posted on my site at http://www.jtpetpics.com
- Another awesome gift-giving idea – please take a quick peek at the April 30 blog post – http://www.jtpetpics.com/jtblog.htm — thanks!

AFH wants to thank everyone who purchased tickets for our recent iPad Mini raffle. The lucky winner is Barbara Johnson from Virginia. Thanks to your support we were able to raise $2380 for our rescue.
Since this raffle was such a success, we plan on doing another one again soon!

A Forever Home would like to thank Paws Awhile Pet Hotel in Warrenton, VA (www.pawsawhilepetmotel.com) for their continued help supporting our rescue efforts. Not only have they volunteered to groom these dogs for free when they come in matted with urine and feces, but also they have placed a donation jar in their lobby. To date, they have collected over $300 to go towards medical bills related to the rescue of these dogs and donated $500 of their own. A Forever Home greatly appreciates their generous support.
