AFH has teamed up with Pet House to raise some money to help our pups. They sell all kinds of nice smelling stuff – from candles to room sprays to wax tarts. They sell quality products at reasonable prices and the best part is that AFH gets 20% of every sale!
The bad news is that this promotion only runs for two weeks – from 12/3/19 through 12/17/19 – so don’t wait!

As you know, AFH raffled off two tickets to “The Jonas Brothers Happiness Begins Tour.” We have drawn a winner tonight and it is Donna Niner! Congratulations Donna and thank you to all who played and Jessica Miltenberger for donating the tickets. We raised some very badly needed funds to help offset some of the medical costs for dogs like Hopscotch and Mississippi Faith to just name a few. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Ella and Maddy, GS Troop 5433, recently did their Girl Scout Silver award project to make people aware of homeless animals and how rescue helps them. They chose AFH to be the beneficiary of their work as Ella’s family adopted from our rescue and they have also volunteered with our rescue. (We were especially grateful for their help on what turned out to be a very very busy and hectic event this Saturday. They were life savers!) As part of their work, they advocated for adopting and not buying and for supporting local rescues. They conducted educational presentations with younger scouts about how animals can become homeless, how rescues find them homes, and the importance of proper identification/microchips for pets. They had the scouts make fleece blankets for our doggies and raised money for AFH by doing bake sales and chores! They also used these bake sales as a way to educate the larger public about the importance of adoption and rescue work. We are very grateful for their generous donations and help!
This June, Alice from Troop 5484 did her Silver Award project with her fellow scouts Jenny and Madison. Their project was called Toys4Joy where they taught kids how to make animal toys like a chew toy, treat toy, cat scratcher, and more. They came by our adoption event to drop off some toys and of course, play with puppies! Thanks ladies!
