St. John’s Community Services, a nondenominational, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) human services organization, supports adults with intellectual, developmental, and other disabilities. Amanda Cole runs the art program for St. John’s, and she reached out to AFH to see if we would work with them on a photography project. The project participants are part of a day program where they look to find jobs, volunteer, or find other ways to contribute to society. Amanda’s clients are learning all about the art process, from creation to the finished product, where they like to create works of art to sell. They are currently focusing on photography and wanted to work with our puppies. They got the chance to socialize with the puppies and take some photos!
Thanks to the Petco Foundation, AFH was just given a grant for $10,000! This couldn’t have come at a better time since we have several heartworm positive dogs, and Scarlet, who has cost us $18,000 so far and requires heart surgery – which will cost us approximately $5,000. The Petco Foundation has been a generous supporter of AFH for many years, and we appreciate everything they have done for our dogs!
Happy New Year!
We will be having our first adoption event of the year this Sunday from 1-4 at the Chantilly Petco in the Greenbriar Shopping Center. Come meet some of our available dogs and fall in love!
The following dogs are scheduled to appear: Jolene. (This list will be updated throughout the week so check back often).
Want to meet a dog that is not listed here? Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward it to the foster family of that dog. If you do not get a response in three days, please re-email so we can check as to why the foster family did not respond.
We have set a course to our end goal of having a forever home of our own.
No one likes asking for money, but if we are to expand our operations and grow our capabilities to save more dogs, we have to ask for your financial support.
We are renewing our commitment to save more animals. We are willing to do our part to save them from shelters, transport them to us, take care of their medical needs, care for them, provide basic training, assess their needs/preferences, and place them into the perfect home – yours.
