    Due to current events, FOHA is facing a decrease in adoption traffic and donations, as well as a possible increase in animals in need of help. We have temporarily closed our resale shop, The Treasure Hound, to do our part to stop the spread of the pandemic. During these uncertain times, FOHA needs monetary donations more than ever. If you would like to contribute, please click here. Thank you for your continued support.
