Good news! We have just launched a new program, Home Referrals Save Lives. It’s an easy way for you to support our rescue activities without costing you a thing. It’s easy, if you or someone you know, is looking to buy or sell a home you can refer them to us by emailing Homes@aforeverhome.net. For every home referral successfully closed through this program, A Forever Home will receive a $500.00 donation in your name.
We will be having our weekly adoption event this Sunday at the Chantilly Petco in the Greenbriar Town Center from 1-4. Come meet some of our available dogs to see if your forever friend might be there!

We’ve teamed with DogGone Natural to provide us with quality food for the dogs in our rescue. Premium nutrition is critically important to the health of any dog, and this is especially true for dogs who haven’t had the greatest care throughout their lives. To ensure that dogs in AFH’s care receive the best quality nutrition available, DogGone Natural worked with Annamaet Petfoods, Inc. to provide the rescue with one of the best “super premium” foods available – Annamaet Encore. Please take a few minutes to review some information about DogGone Natural and Annamaet, and be sure to stop by the DogGone Natural stores in Ashburn and Leesburg to say “Hi” and let them know that you appreciate their support of the rescue!
We are pleased to align ourselves with Northern Virginia’s leading independent pet store, DogGone Natural, for wellness, proper nutrition and everything related to pets. Under the guidance of owner Kimberly Correnti, her staff of “pet experts” are well versed in a holistic approach to natural healing of the many acute or chronic ailments pets may experience throughout their lifetime.
Jeanne Taylor, pet photographer, offers beautiful, natural setting portraits of your rescued companion(s). She gives a 10 percent discount on products for rescued pets PLUS a portion of proceeds is issued to A Forever Home Rescue if you mention our name. Visit www.jtpetpics.com for details.
After a bit of a hiatus, David and Lauren are back with the podcast! We’re excited to have them back on the airwaves, and we’re sure you’ll enjoy this month’s episode. Give ’em a listen and let us know what you think. Without further adieu here are David & Lauren:
This is one of the most important topics we’ll ever discuss! Yes, we know that there are many people who are not comfortable crating their dog, but we firmly believe that the crate is one of the most important tools available for managing your dog’s behavior. A big part of many people’s hesitation with crating is the dog’s typical reaction when you first introduce the crate. If it’s not done correctly, the dog will see the crate as a “bad place” rather than the safe place it should be.
In this video, Stacie provides a quick intro to an effective method for “crate training” your dog. If you follow her advice, you will wind up with a dog who is accepting of the crate, and in most cases, enjoys having a place to call their own. Check it out and let us know what you think!
OK, admit it, you’ve watched (and listened to) dogs at play and, sometimes, you just aren’t sure if the posturing and growling are all in fun or something more serious. Stacie from Hornbaker Dog Training is here to help you sort through the chaff and feel more confident about all the excitement.
