Mission: Our Mission Statement is to help ALL Dogs in need when resources permit. We are a rescue for small breed dogs. We do not turn away dogs due to age or health. We take in the dogs that need rescue.
Results: We average rescuing over 750 dogs per year. Our annual intake in over 1000. Without our fosters to open their hearts and homes or our adopters to give these special dogs 'Forever Homes' we could not help as many as we do.
Thank you for helping to save these dogs from euthanasia.
Target demographics: Most of our fosters are located in the NE States but we have rescue homes all across the US. We cover AR, MO, IL, KY, and other Southern states as well.
Geographic areas served: We mainly adopt our dogs in the NE, United States. We do have some adoptions in other states as well.
Programs: We help teach dog training techniques and also help to educate the public about spay/neuter and its importance to keep dogs from being euthanized in shelters.
I do not understand this group. We called to inquire about a dog, Traxx, being fostered by FOHA in Aldie, VA. We were told that we are not within their metro area. We live 10 miles west of their cutoff. The person imparting the information was rude and short in her response. The next day I emailed them offering to pay their gas to do a home check, since we are only 10 miles west of their cutoff and we really wanted the dog. I heard nothing back, but my partner got an email saying the fosterer was adopting the dog. We believe that they simply wanted to get rid of us. It is no wonder so many homeless dogs and cats never get homes. Rescue groups have inflexible rules, and this group was just one that falls in that category. It has always been my understanding that fosterers do not keep the dog or if fosterer may wish to keep the dog, the dog is not put on the "adoptable" list. Having just lost our beloved beagle mix, once again we were put through a grieving via this rejection. I used to donate to this organization, but no more, EVER.
