Seriously. I love this girl. Adoptable Queenie is looking for a home, and she’s in the northern Virginia area. Check her out at the Friends of Homeless Animals website.
I’m back with more adorable adoptables from Petfinder! Today, I’m sharing four fantastic adoptables who are ready for some football. (They’re all in the northern Virginia area, so I guess they’ll be cheering for the Ravens this weekend.)
These great photos are part of the big Super Dog Sunday event happening through February 3. (Get your photos in now!)
Up first, meet Bailey from northern Virginia.
Up next, I’d like to introduce you to Dugal, a Foxhound mix in northern Virginia.
Dugal is a happy boy who likes other dogs and loves people, once he gets to know them. Looking for a champion snuggler? Then he may be the pup for you! For more info on Dugal, click here.
Next to run onto the field? Kayla from northern Virginia!
Kayla is a beautiful Greater Swiss Mountain Dog mix – she loves to run and play, and can’t wait to shower you with affection. Do you have room for this sweet girl on your team? For more info on Kayla, click here.
Last but not least, meet Shakira in northern Virginia!
This cutie pie is an American Staffordshire Terrier. All she wants to do is lay by your side and get some belly rubs. If you’re looking for a companion to watch football with, Shakira’s your gal. For more info on Shakira, click here.
Keep those Super Dog Sunday photos coming!
For this round of Blog the Change for Animals, I wanted to highlight an organization that has been helping animals since before I was a twinkle in my parents’ eyes.
Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) in northern Virginia has been serving the DC area since 1973. Last year, FOHA gave me a wonderful place to volunteer and a new pup in the form of Tavish. This year, FOHA celebrates its 40th anniversary. Continue reading
Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) recently posted two great videos of cats and dogs looking for a home. I already shared the felines. Today, it’s the canines’ turn!

Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) recently posted two great videos of cats and dogs looking for a home. Today, check out the fabulous felines up for adoption from FOHA in northern Virginia:
Aren’t they just purr-fect?
Three local rescue groups in the northern Virginia area (including HART and FOHA, who you may remember from such awesome dogs as Bella and Tavish) participated in a massive Pilots ‘N Paws event on Saturday. The event was called the “Dog is My Copilot” Rescue Flyaway, and it helped save over 300 dogs.
As part of this flyaway event, more than one hundred dogs were brought from high-kill shelters in North Carolina to groups in northern Virginia. The dogs have now been placed in foster homes and shelters with no-kill pledges. Pretty cool, huh?
I have a special video to share with you today – it’s from the Asheville Humane Society, one of the groups in North Carolina helping to send these lucky pups on their way to northern Virginia and other destinations. (Insert obligatory tissue warning here.)
Is it raining on your face too? It just so happens to be a pretty soggy day here, so perhaps everyone will just think I was outside too long.
(As promised, I did live-tweet the event from the FOHA Twitter account – if you want to experience the day all over again, you can find the tweets here.)
Anyway, I took way too many photos (as usual), and wanted to share a few with you today. One of the many fun events was the Best Costume contest, which made for some excellent photo ops. It’s time for you to be the judge – which costume is your favorite?
(For the rest of my photos from the event, check out the full set on Flickr.)

As you may remember, I adopted Tavish from a local rescue group called Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA). It just so happens that FOHA is hosting a big event on September 29 (one week from today), so I wanted to tell you about it. It’s called Barktoberfest: A Purrfect Pet Celebration, and it’s going to be lots of fun. If you’re in the DC or northern Virginia area, consider stopping by!
(Bonus plug: I help with the FOHA Twitter account, and I’ll be live-tweeting from the event. What are you waiting for? Go follow!)
In addition to food, vendors, and the usual festival-type stuff, there are a ton of great events planned, including:
- The Mutt Strut – A one-mile walk (with or without a dog) to raise money for FOHA’s dogs and cats. You can register for the Strut here. If you would rather relax that morning, you can support one of the other walkers or teams that have signed up.
- Raffles and a silent auction – There are tons of awesome items available!
- Music and entertainment, including a pet costume contest, an agility demonstration, and an owner/dog lookalike contest!
Even better, oodles of adoptable FOHA dogs and cats will be at the event. Come out and meet them!
