Lily Marie Harrison was born February 2nd 2011 and crossed the rainbow Bridge on November 7th 2022 at 5:03pm. Lily was a tree walker coonhound/pointer mix. Lily has been such amazing soul and is missed greatly. She was a certified service animal who loved children, people, and other dogs. Her love for chasing squirrels and raccoons was like no other.

We love you so much Lily Marie’ ❤️

Dear AFH: Another update from Trevor aka Baxter adopted in 2014. Trevor is a versatile boy. Most recently he earned the distinction of being the very first dog worldwide to earn the International Dog Parkour Association’s Gap Jump Level 1 Dog Parkour Specialist title (PKD-GJ). We are so excited and are steadily working on the next level to see how far we can go. Anyone interested in checking out this exciting sport can go to their website dogparkour.org and read up on it. There is also a very helpful group on Facebook “Dog Parkour Training,” which encourages handlers to help each other, reviewing each other’s videos, and answering questions from newer members. Thank you all for allowing us to share.
Diana Hong and Trevor
A Forever Home was blown away by a $5,000 donation from Rosenthal Automotive’s initiative called Rosenthal Cares. Our Jessica Miltenberger was on hand to accept the check and we are truly grateful for this incredible generosity. AFH is glad to partner with Rosenthal to give the gift of Forever Homes and Forever Love to needy dogs and pups. We look forward to partnering with them again in the future!
Our beloved Oreo passed away in October 2021. While our hearts are broken at the loss of our unique, sweet, smart, and beautiful girl, we are thankful to AFH for bringing her to us as the cutest, brightest puppy in May 2006. We were totally enamored with her from the first – her alert eyes and ears, white-tipped feet and one white hair on the tip of her tail – and for our golden retriever too, even as she took over his dog bed, toys, and spot on the couch. Our ten year-old son giddily took her on walks around the block, starting a lifetime tradition of running home for the last few houses. Oreo was special in the incredible love and devotion she demonstrated for us and the few people she considered “hers.” She was always within sight, often within reach; she loved nothing better than just being with us. And we loved being with her and our memories keep her close in our hearts.
Join us this Sunday for Paws in the Park! We will have a number of our doggies attending, including the GBeanies and Walking Trail Wendy!
There will also be food, drink, entertainment. Mostly, there will be puppy love! Hope you will stop by and say Hi!
When: Sunday 11 to 4
Where: Oronoco Bay Park, 100 Madision St, Alexandria VA
