We said our final goodbyes to our beloved pup, Murphy, last week. We adopted Murphy (previously Digbey of the Fireworks litter) in July 2006, and we were so lucky to have had 14+ years with our boy. He was a loyal companion who loved his family and his treats. Murphy was as smart as he was handsome; he was a perfect example of why rescue dogs are the best. He left us with so many wonderful memories, including serving as the MOH (mutt of honor) in our wedding. We miss him terribly but find comfort in knowing he’s finally at peace.
Thank you so much, Lauren
My name is Edward Ice and I’m a Junior at George Marshall High School in Falls Church. I am a cross country runner and a swimmer for Marshall and I enjoy competing in local road races and triathlons. I am excited to partner with A Forever Home Animal Rescue on this virtual 5k as part of the work I am doing to earn my International Baccalaureate diploma. I hope to raise money for this great organization while building my project management and leadership skills. Helping this organization is important to me because I know how much my dog is loved and it saddens me to think of all the dog who do not have a loving family.
This is probably the hardest email I have ever sent. We were fortunate enough to have adopted two very special friends from forever home.
Our Taz: Who would have thought that in a trip to Southern States for horse feed we would find such a treasure. There he was and when he was picked up he wrapped his paws around my husband’s neck and that was it. He was such a joy and we were so lucky to have such a wonderful and devoted friend. We lost him to bone cancer. He is deeply missed every day.
Our Bruiser: It was love at first site! We saw him online and knew he belonged in our family. No matter how bad of a day you had, when you drove into the driveway and saw this beautiful face waiting for you it all went away. Always full of love. Bruiser passed in October and is greatly missed. Our hearts are broken.
No longer by our side but forever in our hearts. With heavy heart, Sharon and Kenneth
We adopted our Cody (aka Steve from scamper pups) from a litter fostered by Forever Home in 2007. We put in our application, then were notified that he became very ill (likely with parvovirus) and might not make it. Your rescue group did not give up, and made sure he had the best possible treatment. Thanks to you, he did recover, we were able to bring him into our home and love him for 13 years. Sadly, he passed on December 14th. He was the best companion our family could have hoped for. He loved running outside, playing fetch, going for rides and just hanging with his people. We are grateful to the part you played in bringing him into our lives ❤️❤️ Stephanie
