Volunteering in Northern Virginia

A Forever Home Rescue Foundation (www.aforeverhome.org) is always in need of volunteers. One ongoing need is for foster homes. All food and vet care is paid for by AFH. You provide the love and show potential adopters (at adoption fairs or at your home if you prefer) the dog(s) in your care. We also have long-term foster needs for older dogs who are difficult to adopt out simply because of their age, or for our permanent fosters (those dogs who will live out their lives in a permanent foster home due to advanced age or medical issues).
One need that we have had great difficulty meeting is for experienced business people who can help us write grants/apply for funding and do fundraising. I know that there are a lot of retired professionals out there and I'm hoping that one (or more) can help us with this.
If you think you may be able to help us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
