These kids spent the morning doing a cookie and juice stand for A Forever Home and raised $23! They even had some Fairfax County firefighters stop by and contribute.
The kids came up with the idea after fostering a dog for AFH. They had a wonderful experience and we wanted to help the organization in other ways. We are truly grateful for all they have done for the doggies and to the Fairfax County Fire Department as well.

Patti Stinson won the Spread the Love Contest, sponsored by the Daily Kibble. As a result of her winning entry, she won a $1,000 donation for our rescue and a $100 gift card for herself!
Patti wrote: “I have been in rescue for 25 years and have been with A Forever Home Rescue Foundation (AFH) since early 2003. Our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome abused, neglected, and abandoned puppies and dogs resonates with me. I understand the emotion behind rescue but know that rescues must be financially sound, well managed, and professional in order to succeed – AFH does all of that and I am very proud to be a member of such a wonderful team of volunteers.”
Our friends at Falls Church Distillers have invited us to hang out with them; enjoy some barbecue, drinks, and music; and tell you about all of our wonderful puppies and dogs. The venue opens at 11:30 but we will be there from 3:00-6:00pm.
Stop by and see us!
There are vegetarian and vegan options available too!
Our event at Fairfax Station Train Museum went extremely well. We had 14 foster dogs attend this event and received a number of applications to adopt and even a few to offer to foster for our rescue. Despite the heat, there was a great set up with our younger pups inside and plenty of shade for our older dogs outside. There were lots of friendly people who came by to say hello as well and we really enjoyed meeting so many animal lovers. Thank you to Mario and the rest of the Museum’s staff and volunteers.
What a great event we had! We filled a 15 foot U-Haul truck to the roof in just 4 hours and had enough to spare to fill a cargo van! The recycling center was very impressed and we all hope it translates into lots of green to help our doggies. Thank you to everyone that contributed. Also thank you to Julie Heimstra who helped load the truck, the van, and drove twice to the recycling center. Also thanks to Marybeth Henry who also helped load the truck, Hunter, Gavin, and Jessica Miltenberger who helped put in the last of the items to fill the truck. We are grateful for all your help.
