Max was able to come up with an ingenious idea of creating a false floor to hold our tables and adoption sign and a two tracks that would hold crates in place along the sides of the van. Not only did they do the construction, but they also sorted through the supplies and now it stays reasonably organized.
We just can’t say enough of how grateful we are to Max and the rest of Troop 695.

We also want to thank the Old Towne Pet Resort employees. They have provided temporary boarding and grooming for our Hurricane dogs and have collected over $1600 in donations at their Sterling store and tons of donated items from patrons.
When people come together we can do great things!
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!
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.
