A Forever Home was the recipient of a $1,700 donation from Edward Ice’s 5K Virtual Fundraiser. Edward is a junior at Marshall HS and held this event to raise money for AFH “because I know how much my dog is loved and it saddens me to think of all the dogs who do not have a loving family.” This was a wonderfully creative idea and we are so grateful for all who participated. We are also thankful to Edward for making our dogs the recipient of this generosity.
We adopted Oscar in 2010 and he has been a joy to the end. He made it well
beyond what he should have. Many surgeries for mast cell and finally 6
months of chemo. Every day was a gift A donation has been made in his honor
via pay pal. Thank you for allowing us to have this wonderful boy. When the
pain subsides–we’ll be back. Be on the lookout for boxer puppies. 🙂 Tammy
I woke up this morning to intense sadness. My walking partner of 13 years was not here. I calculated that we went well over 5,000 walks together. Our little buddy who everyone thought was part fox. The sweetest, Best dog ever. Just heartbroken. But we thank God for the light you brought to us. Rest dear Riley. We love you so much!
Maribel and Patti,
My best bud Schooner (AFH original name Donnie) who I adopted from your organization on March 16 2007, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday March 14. I am beyond heartbroken. He was my best friend and my co-pilot for the past 14 years. He always had the most amazing smile and truly had a zest for life. He was such a people person, everybody that met Schooner ended up having a new friend. Over the years we shared so many adventures together. Our favorite thing to do was run agility courses. We started doing dog agility when Schooner was two years old and we were running courses as a team for almost 12 years. Schooner loved doing anything at the beach! Always a week at Dewey Beach, DE every year. He totally enjoyed being in the sun, running on the beach with other dogs, and digging in the sand. Loved, going for car rides especially to his favorite store, Dog Gone Natural for a treat and to Starbucks for his puppuccino. Most of all he was my loyal companion and confidant, always at my side through thick and thin. I could talk to Schooner about anything, and he would sit there and listen attentively and nonjudgmentally. Schooner was my amazing guy with a heart of gold. I will miss him terribly, but he will live on in my heart forever. Thank you so much for bringing Schooner into my life. I knew immediately when he came up to me and looked up with that little head tilt, that he and I would be best friends forever….Thank you so much. Sincerely, Mary Ann
