Friends of Homeless Animals

Barktoberfest 2018

Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) will be hosting our signature event at the Loudoun County Fairgrounds on Saturday, October 6th.  This event helps to raise much needed funds to allow FOHA to continue its mission of rescuing homeless animals, and finding their "forever homes".

We have a number of volunteer opportunities for people in order to make our Barktoberfest signature fundraiser a success.  Set-up will start on Friday, October 5th, and events will start Saturday, October 6th at 10am.  We will also need help with cleanup on Sunday, October 7th.

Location:  Loudoun County Fairgrounds:  17558 Dry Mill Road in Leesburg, VA

FOHA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) no-kill shelter dedicated to saving abandoned and abused cats and dogs.

If you are under 21, please sign up on the Barktoberfest High School Student site

 

In addition to the dates  and times listed here, we have lots of opportunities for volunteers.  Feel free to email [email protected] if you are interested in other ways of helping at this event.  We always have a need for animal lovers.
