Jasper is a sweet senior dog with many health issues affecting the last years of his life. When he was brought in, he had an ear infection so severe that flies hung around his ears. He needs to see an eye doctor for his impaired vision and should also get his teeth checked out. Additionally, he has stage 3 heartworm, and until it is treated, he can't receive all the medical care he needs. Please help Jasper get back on his feet so he can enjoy himself once again!

Help raise the $1,300 he needs for surgery.

Capone came to AHFA from Chicago, after he was hit by a car. Considering what could have happened to him, he was lucky to escape with a gash on his leg, which needed to be closed with stitches, and four fractures on his pelvis. 

Unfortunately, one of those fractures requires surgery that needs to be performed quickly, due to his age and the injury.  He is scheduled to have the surgery on April 19th so we are on a short timetable to raise money.

The great news is that with the procedure, Capone will lead a normal and pain free life. He is only 6 months old and has many years of running and playing ahead of him.

Please consider donating to the fund for his surgery.  Even a small amount will help greatly!


Pets We've Saved




Capone Survived Being Hit By a Car

Callie came to AHFA from a kill shelter in Ohio. After years of neglect, Callie was in desperate need of medical attention. Upon examination, it was found that Callie had an infection in both ears and both eyes as well as major skin issues from untreated allergies. The worst of these injuries was a hernia on her uterus, causing it to hang out through her abdomen. AHFA is helping to provide her with the care she needs and deserves, but unfortunately, her treatments are costly. Help save Callie by donating to her Gofundme!

Since 2012, we have saved over 1,000 cats and dogs. AHFA has helped place animals with special medical needs in forever homes where they are happy and healthy. Among the pets we've rescued are abandoned older pets who are now able to live out their golden years with a loving family. To help us continue our rescue efforts, please consider donating!
