Frost's Story

Frost Before

Donate today and help us save dogs like Frost. Frost was probably a happy-go-lucky dog at one point, but when he came to Friends of Homeless Animals he cowered in fear. Some cruel, heartless person shot this beautiful 2-year old Golden Retriever mix in his leg, leaving him in pain and agony. Frost was an outdoor dog, and his owners apparently didn't care about him at all, since they never got him any medical treatment for his shattered leg.  A month went by, and someone finally made a cruelty report to animal control. They seized Frost and his mom from their neglectful and abusive owners, but with no one to pay for surgery to repair Frost's leg, his life was again in jeopardy. Fortunately for Frost and his mom, FOHA was willing to rescue them both and give Frost the care he needed.



Just weeks after his surgery, Frost had come out of his shell. He started walking proudly with his tail up and was no longer scared of the world. Now he is happily enjoying the good life with his forever home. The recession was tough on us. Our donations have declined significantly over the last few years, and yet we continued to bring in abused, abandoned, and neglected animals, many pulled from high kill shelters. We have heard there is a turn around in the economy but we haven’t seen it yet. Can you please help us to continue to save the lives of homeless animals? Please donate today.



About FOHA: Friends of Homeless Animals, located in Loudoun County, Virginia, was founded in 1973 by Judge Anne Lewis.  We truly are a no-kill shelter. Our animals have a place to stay as long as they need to. We have a long-term village where our canine residents who have been with us the longest have their own furnished, heated and airconditioned cottages. Our cats live in communal housing, not cages.
