How to Help
AFH is always in need of assistance. There are many ways you can help. Here are a few ideas:
Because AFH is a 100% volunteer-run organization, we can not function without your help. In particular, we need foster homes, transporters for adoptions and vet visits, handlers at adoption days, home checkers, and helpers at fundraising events. If you would like to help, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consider becoming an AFH foster home provider!
Please donate generously so that AFH can help more dogs in need. 100% of your tax-deductible donations go directly to the care of our animals. Donations can be made via PayPal or JustGiving or checks can be mailed to: AFH, P.O. Box 222801, Chantilly, VA 20153-2801. Questions can be sent to email@example.com.

Brownie came to AFH in June, 2003. She was our first major medical case, requiring around-the-clock care and many trips to the vet. Brownie eventually made a full recovery and was adopted into her Forever Home.
We established Brownie’s fund to enable us to be prepared for the inevitable … the next “Brownie” who comes through our door. If you would like to help build our Brownie Fund, please use our PayPal (use the “Donate” button to the right for no-fee processing) or JustGiving links and enter “Brownie’s Fund” in the comment section. Your generous donation will be directed to our major medical fund – in honor of Brownie!
Donate while searching the internet. You do it – probably at least a couple times every day. You visit Google, Bing, or Yahoo and search for something on the Internet. Do you realize that you can benefit AFH simply by using GoodSearch as your search engine? Visit GoodSearch.com and sign up now – it takes only a few seconds, and the clicks really will add up!
