Fritz (aka Folgers)

We just wanted to send you and update on our wonderful dog Fritz known as Folgers when we adopted him a year ago.   We adopted him at Pet Smart in Bloomingdale on Mother’s Day last year and we JUST LOVE HIM! When we first saw him he was less than 10 lbs and walked on 3 legs due to being left in a cage at a pet store in Lisle.  We are now happy to say that he runs like the wind on all 4 legs and has a wonderful life with our other dog Boots. He lives a wonderful life sleeping in beds, running in his backyard through access of a dog door all day,  chasing his pal and playing with baskets of toys.  We cannot thank you enough for doing all that you do to save dogs and help one that would otherwise not have made it. On our one year anniversary with our Fritz in his forever home…..Thank You.

Jupiter (aka Tippy) Success Story

As we approach the one year anniversary of adopting Jupiter (aka Tippy), I wanted to share this video with you and thank you again for helping bring him into our lives.
 
 
This is a small gesture of the way we feel for him and the way he has affected us. In April we took him on a road trip to the Grand Canyon where he helped me propose to Andrea. He has been there for every life changing moment since we adopted him and we can't thank you enough for giving us these memories with him. We hope that you have continued to foster and brought more families together because ours started when we added Jupiter. He now lives with two cats, can catch a ball, is trained off-leash, loves to swim, enjoys socializing with other dogs, and wins over everyone he encounters. 
We're sure that he would love to see you again if you ever wanted to catch up. He's grown a lot and I'm sure he hasn't forgotten his rescuers. Neither have we!
 
Best,
David, Andrea, and Jupiter

Rolo from rescue dog to therapy dog

Who says you have to start out with a puppy to get a good dog? Rolo lost his original home at 9 months, spent 3 months in a shelter, then came to AHF and got adopted soon after. His new family trained him to be a therapy dog. Congratulations Rolo! We're very proud of you! Go and do good work
