Friends of Homeless Animals saves and improves lives one paw at a time. FOHA provides rescue, medical care, and adoption services in the Northern Virginia and Washington DC metropolitan areas. More than 16,000 cats and dogs have found a haven with FOHA over the last 47 years. FOHA’s mission statement is Home with us until they’re home with you.

Funded from 2021 to 2023

With generous funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization, Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) is expanding its Senior Care Plan, which waives adoption fees for senior dogs and provides reimbursement for qualifying medical expenses or pet insurance premiums. The Senior Care Plan also includes senior-specific preventative healthcare before adoption, which results in healthier senior dogs with fewer long-term health issues. The plan assures adopters they can confidently adopt a senior dog like seven-year-old Lambert, a beautiful shepherd mix who has a big heart and loves a good walk. Supporting and encouraging senior dog adoptions will allow FOHA to take in more senior dogs from overcrowded shelters.
