A Forever Home Rescue Foundation
Finding forever home for dogs in need
Welcome to What's New!
Welcome to the first step in our multi-step journey to an improved
online experience! This first step provides a significant visual upgrade.
There will be more improvements as we go along – look forward to
an online fillable adoption application (not in phase one, but it’s coming!)
While you’re here, take a look around and let us know what you think –
and any ideas you have for what else we need to add!
Gwen lost her owner who tragically drowned. She was left to birth her pups in a dog house during a deep freeze. Gwen and her surviving pups are safely in foster care. Gwen is a beautiful girl who wants nothing more than to love and be loved. She is just patiently waiting to find her forever family so she can start her journey to a wonderful life that she so deserves.
Rango is a cute little Hound mix with a tragic story. He was found in rural Mississippi with a painful steel leghold trap clamped on one of his feet. A sheriff was driving down a country road and saw Rango dragging himself toward the road. There is no telling how long this poor boy suffered. Because his foot and leg were badly infected, Rango’s leg had to be removed, but now he is doing amazingly well. Having only three legs doesn’t slow him down one bit! His will to live really shines through. Now he just needs a forever family.

Girls on the Run Fundraiser!
The Waples Mill Elementary Girls on the Run team hosted a “Pizza for Pups & Cookies for Cats” pizza and bake sale on May 15th! The girls brainstormed, planned, and implemented the event independently with guidance from their Girls on the Run (GOTR) coaches. This community impact project is one of the girls’ capstones upon completing the 10-week program that focuses on preparing them with life skills to help them be healthy, joyful, and confident. On Saturday, May 20th, the girls completed their second capstone – a 5K run/walk – celebrating all their accomplishments. The Waples Mill GOTR team all have an enthusiastic passion for helping those in our community, especially our four-legged friends, and said this “was the best service project” they’ve ever done! The girls are proud to share that their efforts raised $200 for A Forever Home and are happy to help the pups and kittens in our community.

Look Who Went Home!
Lucy (Monica’s Belle)
Hi, We adopted Monica’s Belle in November. She now goes by Lucy and has settled into our home and our hearts very well! We graduated from Puppy Kindergarten class this evening and thought we would share a photo of the goodest girl 😉. Thank you for all the care you guys gave her. I know she had a wonderful foster Mom in Tricia (who I believe went on to adopt Lucy’s brother Thor). The strong start she got in her foster home has gone a long way in making her a success.
Here is our next intallment of Forever Tails. In this issue we annonce our next Casino Night. We also Highlight some of our special needs dogs: Lucky, Baby Girl, Pentunia and available dogs Rango and Walkter. Our volunteer spotlight falls on Virginia Colin and Lynette Catlett. We also have an article on why dogs eat their poop! We remember Blitz, Rover, Benny, Roxy and Abby. We also have sweet stories on Reading is Fundamental with Winter and Moe the Therapy dog. Finally, there Save the Environment and Save a Dog. Read all of this here: 2023MayNewsletterWeb.
No Adoption Event Saturday
