Recently AFH rescued sweet Mini from the streets of Oman where she would never have survived. Unfortunately, she suffered a broken leg which required major surgery. To help pay for Mini’s care, one of our valuable volunteers donated this raffle to raise badly needed funds:
Our new raffle will help answer important questions about our furry family members like:
- Where did my Beagle mix get those blue eyes?
- How does a lab mix have dew claws on his hind feet?
- And where on earth did she get those ears?
Find out now with two (2) canine DNA Test Kits. A perfect gift for your favorite fur parent for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day (or keep them both for your own fur babies!) Prize includes a Weber’s $50 gift certificate to celebrate the results (or Petco/Petsmart one if you live outside the area.)
Find out more & enter the raffle here.
Looking for a new friend, we will be having an adoption event this Saturday March 23, from 1-4 at the Weber’s Pet Supermarket in Chantilly, VA. We hope you will come out and see some of beautiful dogs and pups.
Following is a list of dogs that will be attending: F Pups, A Pups, H Pups, Tabitha, Maya, Tiny Tim, Jake, Remi, Buster, Leda, E Pups, Nosey/Emmie, Samoa. (This list is updated often so do check back.)
Don’t see a dog you are interested in meeting? Please e-mail email@example.com and we can put you on touch with their foster parent.
The winner of our Air Fryer raffle is Laura Revilla. She is pictured here at center, accepting her prize, along with her daughter (left).
An AFH volunteer donated the fryer and an Aldie gift card to provide support for our Brownie’s Fund. Brownie’s fund pays for medical care for dogs with extraordinary expenses. One recent dog was Rylie, who required multiple surgeries after being hit by a car, shortly after giving birth to 14 pups! Mom and pups have all found their forever homes.
This has been a Happy Valentine’s Day for two of our rescued doggies; Romeo and Juliet found their forever home together. We want to thank to Julie Sun and Beth Brummett for coming to Fox 5 this morning to reunite this pair, rescued from being tied to a burnt out trailer for a year. If you missed it, you can view it at http://www.fox5dc.com/news/389443751-video.

A Forever Home was invited to bring some of our doggies out to meet our benefactors at the Lincoln Property Management fundraiser. We are the lucky recipients of needed supplies and nearly $1000 in cash donations. Thanks to their support, we are able to provide needed medical care for some of the dogs and pups rescued this year.
Our event at Dogma Bakery https://dogmabakery.com, with photos by Jeanne Taylor http://jtpetpics.com, was a great hit! We received a donation of $450 thanks to all the wonderful people and doggies that came out to sit on Santa’s lap:
- New babies (1st Christmas) – 2
- Kids – 10
- Dogs – 110
- Grown-ups – 31
We are grateful to Jeanne Taylor for her awesome photography, Dogma for their dedication to the dogs, Santa for being such a trooper, and AFH volunteers Vanessa, Jordan, and Kenna for helping out.
Audrey celebrated her 11th birthday with Hope’s pups. As you can see, the pups had as good of a time as the kids. Hope’s pups had a great time romping and playing with the pull toys the party goers made for them. They ran under tables, chased each other, played with the girls, and gave lots of kisses. In addition, Audrey and her friends donated $210 for our pups and we are very grateful. Happy Birthday Audrey and thank you for inviting us to come out and celebrate with you!
Super sweet, super wiggly Trixie is one lucky little girl. Her previous family moved away and left her chained to a tree, ready to have her puppies any minute. When the neighbors noticed that she’d been out there for a few days with nobody coming to feed or water her and that the weather was starting to turn cold, they cut her chain and took her to the local shelter. The shelter she was taken to has an extremely high kill rate, and poor Trixie was next in line for euthanasia if someone didn’t speak for her immediately. Luckily, AFH caught wind of little Trixie’s plight, and immediately took her into foster.
Only a few days after being placed with her foster family, on Veteran’s Day, Trixie went into labor. She delivered six beautiful, healthy puppies, with the help and support of her foster parents. Now, Trixie gets to spend her days in a warm, safe foster home with plenty of people who love and dote on her while she takes excellent care of her little family. Her human foster sisters even read her a story every night before bedtime!
Trixie’s puppies will start looking for their forever homes in about six weeks, and Trixie will start looking for hers a few weeks after that when she’s able to be spayed. In the meantime, they’ll all enjoy plenty of cuddles and cookies, and get to stay out of the cold.
