AFH is happy to announce our first 50/50 raffle and YOU can win up to $20,000 while helping us to save lives! As you may know, AFH has saved many thousands of abused, neglected, abandoned, and unwanted puppies and dogs over our 20 years of operation. As you also know, vet care is expensive, and prices continue to rise.
So far $19,820.00 in the pot (winner gets half)!
Not only will proceeds from this raffle help us to continue to provide quality vet care for the animals in our care, but it will give us a little cushion to cover extraordinary medical costs such as surgeries, heartworm treatments, and emergency medical situations.
Tickets are $20 each and ticket sales will be limited to only 2,000 tickets! These odds are much better than playing the lottery!
We just wanted to thank the Davis Team of CrossCountry Mortgage in Sterling Virginia for their donation of $5,300! They held three Happy Hour that benefitted A Forever Home Rescue. Their happy hours had raffles and give-aways, and they allowed our dedicated volunteers to also present information about our rescue. We are so grateful for their generosity! This will go a long way to help our dogs with major medical needs get the care and love they need.
Good Day, It is with much sadness that I let you know that our sweet little Tia went to the Rainbow Bridge (a few days ago) on Friday, May 22, 2022 to wait for us. She was an amazing dog. I want you to know she had an amazing life. She was 18 years old. She was like a child to us and we heaped so much love on her every single day and night. She returned just as much love to us. Our hearts are breaking and we don’t know how to deal with the pain. We cried for 8 days prior to her passing when we realized we needed to let her pass away. She passed with my spouse and I with her as well as the sweet doctor and nurse that had tended to her since she became ours 17 years ago. Thank you for saving her and her pups…. I hope their lives have been as wonderful and they were loved like we loved Tia.
With so much admiration and thanks to AFH! Thomas and Eric
We adopted our sweet dog Maddie from A Forever Home in March 2013. She was born on Christmas eve 2012. She was the first dog we saw at the adoption event. We picked her up right away and decided she was ours. She was our first fur child. We have had two children since she came into our lives and they loved her more than anything in the world. Maddie loved to sit at the dinner table with us in her younger years, she loved long walks and playing fetch with her frisbee. Maddie tolerated so much from both of her human siblings and had so much patience with them. She loved giving an infinite number of kisses to them, especially when traces of food covered their faces after dinner. Maddie was an anxious pup, from the second we brought her home. Car rides were the first anxiety we had to help her get over. It only took about two years. She hated her nails touched, taking baths, and refused to go on walks if only one of her owners was with her. She needed at least two humans on every walk with her. She had the softest and shiniest fur and the sweetest eyes. Every human that met her, loved her. We only had her for a short 9 years and she was suffering from what the vets suspected was a brain tumor. After two months filled with testing and medications, we had to make one of the most difficult decisions of our lives and didn’t expect to make it so soon. She loved so much in her 9 years. Her absence is breaking our hearts, but her presence in our lives gave us some of our best memories filled with unconditional love.
We are writing to thank you for making possible our adoption of Petio (nee Elvis) back on April 6, 2007. Petio passed away on Saturday, February 12, 2022, at the estimated age of 17½ years old, surrounded by his loving family and attended by his lifelong veterinarian, but not before sharing nearly fifteen (15) joy-filled years of unconditional love and faithful companionship with us. While we are still disconsolate and miss him so deeply we also recognize that we were most privileged to be with him for as long as we were, although when you truly love someone anything short of forever is destined to end in sorrow & sadness. Every day with Petio was a gift, and we’ll never forget when we first met at an adoption event, when he walked up to me and just sat down between my feet. It is said that the people pick the dog but we really believe that it was Petio who chose us that day. We still recall his foster mom saying, “Wow, he likes you already!” (Read More)
