The Truth About FIV Cats

Airing in March 2024 on Fairfax Channel 10, in this episode, Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) discusses the truth about FIV cats and shares heart warming stories about Scooter, who was rescued twice.

Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA)

Since 1973, Friends of Homeless Animals has worked to save the lives of over 16,000 dogs and cats through pet adoption in Northern Virginia and surrounding areas.


Home with us until they’re home with you.℠

FOHA is the enduring gold standard in quality for no-kill rescues, saving and improving the lives of homeless cats and dogs. We strive to:


Bring an end to the unnecessary killing of companion animals

Provide a safe haven for abused and abandoned animals

Provide food, shelter, medical care, rehabilitation, and compassion to homeless animals

Find permanent, loving homes for the animals in our care

And, most importantly, bring about a time when there will be no more homeless pets and every dog and cat can be guaranteed a loving home.


Our Story: From Past to Present, the Legacy of Anne Lewis

Since 1973, FOHA has saved and placed in forever homes more than 17,000 dogs and cats that would otherwise have been abandoned or killed. This success is the legacy of Anne Lewis.


Anne founded Friends of the Animal Shelter and Guardians of the Homeless Animals, d/b/a Friends of Homeless Animals, in 1973. She devoted the remaining 32 years of her life to the rescue and care of homeless animals.


Our No-Kill Philosophy and Lifetime Commitment to Our Animals

Friends of Homeless Animals makes a lifetime commitment to every cat and dog we bring into our organization. If at any time after an adoption is completed, the adopter can no longer care for the animal for any reason, they must return it to us. FOHA is committed to taking that animal back and searching for its new home. This is written into every adoption contract signed by our adopters.


We are also committed to keeping our long-term, harder-to-adopt resident dogs comfortable at our shelter in their own individual homes equipped with a bed, front porch, turf outdoor running area, and air-conditioning and heat. We are a true no-kill organization that rarely performs euthanasia except in situations where animals are suffering and can’t be helped medically.
