We adopted her as Carla on 2/29/2008 and named her Marley. Her estimated date of birth was given to us as 1/1/2008. She was a labrador/boxer mix born with brothers and sisters but we chose her because we loved her shiny black coat and kind eyes. We had her when we were a year married and then had 2 kids so Marley has been with us from the beginning. She always loved to eat and run around and always had her tail wagging. The last few days were hard to see because she could not walk as well due to her battle with arthritic legs and sarcoma. It made us so sad seeing her not being able to eat when she was the best eater with her tail down between her legs which was nothing we ever saw her do. We had to put her to sleep on 4/25/2021 with such heavy hearts. Our whole family misses her very much. We are so thankful for A Forever Home for giving us the wonderful gift of having Marley.
We have so many foster needs for mommies and pups. Just one of them is Cookie. She is a beautiful 3-year old Cur mix. She weighs 30 pounds. This precious girl had 12 puppies on 3/27/21. They will be 6 weeks old when they arrive and they can go home when they are 8 weeks old. Her owner was moving to Las Vegas from Louisiana and claimed that the puppies weren’t nursing (which wasn’t true) and wanted to dump them with our rescue partner and take mom with her. The puppies were just a few days old. Our rescue partner wasn’t going to let that happen and took in the whole family.
If you can help Cookie or any of our available mommies and pups, please e-mail email@example.com. We would love to have you join our team and save all of these innocent babies and moms.
To A Forever Home –
In 2007, I adopted a puppy that I named Isis (her original name was Gumdrop). For 14 wonderful years, Isis was my constant companion. We walked for two hours or more per day!
Isis was part beagle, part whippet, so she loved to sniff and loved to sprint. She obsessively chased squirrels and frequently asked for snacks. She provided our family with lots of love and cuddles.
Isis was sweet and gentle to the end. We said goodbye to her on April 2, 2021, but she will remain in our hearts forever. Thank you for giving us this wonderful gift!
We adopted Annabelle (originally Roxy) back in the fall of 2006. She was with us through the birth of our three children, and was a wonderful companion for our family as it grew. As toddlers our kids gave her the nickname “Abo” as they had a hard time saying her full name. She was always very gentle with our kids, who she viewed as an excellent source of supplemental food from vacuuming up the floor around them. She was wonderful with all of our extended family’s dogs, especially her best friend Stella. She was a great friend on numerous walks around the neighborhood, hikes through the wilderness, and road trips to the beach. It was a truly sad day for our family when we had to put Annabelle down this past February after nearly 15 years. We miss her so much!

Carman’s pups are just one litter of pups that arrived on our transport Saturday. A total of 43 lives were saved and all are now looking for their forever homes. All of these dogs made the long ride from rescues in the Gulf Coast area where they are experiencing a boom of puppies, along with many adult dogs that are always in need of rescue. AFH is looking for new foster home providers to help us keep with this critical situation. If you would like to foster, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you more information.
Dear A Forever Home Staff, 15 years ago we adopted the sweetest little puppy from A Forever Home. “Cooper” a beagle spaniel mix was in our eyes our first baby and through the years he was the most wonderful little companion we could have asked for. He grew up with our family including our son “Sam” and always held a special place in our hearts. On the last day of August 2019 we had to say goodbye to our dear old friend. Personally, it was the hardest day of my life but he still makes me smile when I look at pictures of him.
Although I swore we could never go through the pain of saying goodbye to another dog ever again, something has been truly missing in our house ever since. It just hasn’t been the same without the pitter patter of paws and happy dog kisses….I attached some pics of “Cooper” that we took over the years. Just figured you’d like to see how that fateful day truly changed our lives.
All the Best, Rob
Our loving companion is gone… but his memory lives on!
We signed ourselves up 12 years ago for this guaranteed heartbreak without comprehending that it’s in exchange for the deepest, most magical, unadulterated form of unconditional love. Shep, we love you and miss you dearly. You have left your paw prints all over our hearts and you will be there forever.
