Our new friends at Olde Towne Pet Resort reached out to us and offered to temporarily house a bunch of dogs that we rescued from Hurricane Harvey, and dogs we will be rescuing from Irma! Not only are they doing this for free, but they are making their groomers, trainers, and animal care team available to these dogs as well.
We want everyone to know what an amazing display of generosity this is. This is a commercial business that is giving up revenue generating space to help victims of the recent hurricanes.
They have three locations, one in Springfield, VA, one in Dulles VA, and one in Rockville, MD.
if you don’t already know about them, we encourage everyone to support their business.
We are extremely grateful for their help and look forward to a long relationship with them.
Be sure to stop by one of their locations and tell them that AFH sent you!
All of us at AFH want to thank them for their genuine care for animals, their support of rescue dogs, and their generosity!
A Forever Home Rescue Foundation wants to thank the Banfield Foundation for their generous grant. They recently awarded us $10,000 to help with our expenses related to rescuing dogs from the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Harvey. We brought 31 dogs back to Northern Virginia; to date, 9 of them have tested positive for heartworm, and one of those has a heart murmur and has to have all of his teeth pulled. We anticipate expenses in the area of $40,000 for Harvey dogs alone, and an additional $30,000 for Irma victims. We are getting our first group of Irma victims shortly. The Banfield Foundation’s generosity is greatly appreciated as we work to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome dogs affected by both Harvey and Irma.
We are back safe and sound from the Gulf Coast! Four volunteers took two vans packed floor to ceiling with your donated supplies to one of our shelter partners. Not only were they overwhelmed by your generosity, but they are paying it forward. They provide food to low-income people in their neighborhood – with a focus on senior citizens.
We brought back 31 dogs. To date, 9 of them have tested heartworm positive, and one of those has a heart murmur and has to have every single one of his teeth pulled. This is a result of blatant neglect. This particular dog, a 4 pound Chihuahua, is probably the worst case. After his heartworm treatment, cardiology care, and dental work, this one little guy could cost us up to $10,000. We also have to treat the other 8 for heartworm, and do basic vetting (spaying/neutering, vaccinations, deworming, etc.) for the rest of the dogs.
We need your help. We made a commitment to these dogs so they will get whatever they need to be restored to health so they can enjoy a quality life. Can you help us with a donation toward their care? Any amount helps and is truly appreciated.
Watching these dogs being restored to health is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. Knowing that they were neglected and abandoned by their families is horrible, but knowing that we can make them better – with you help – is heartworming. Please click the Donate button on this page to help them.
Thank you for being there for them.
Fifteen years ago, a handful of rescuers came together to start a new rescue based on the idea of finding FOREVER homes for dogs in need, not just any home. With one foster home, a personal credit card, and a yards sale, AFH was born. Since then, we have grown to include over 2,000 volunteers and more than 10,000 adopters and supporters. Thanks to all of you who have ever volunteered, adopted, or donated to the rescue for making these 15 years successful. Happy 15th Birthday AFH!
