Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) – Barktoberfest – a no-kill shelter in Loudoun County dedicated to saving abandoned and abused cats and dogs. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Our annual signature fundraiser, Barktoberfest, will be at the Loudoun County Fairgrounds on September 24th, 2016 from 10 am to 7 pm. In order for the event to be successful, we need high school volunteers to help.
Possible volunteer opportunities include: Kids games, helping oversee the silent auction area, parking assistance, and floating volunteers (fill water buckets/dog pools, help judge contests) For more information on our FOHA and events, you can refer to the FOHA website, www.foha.org, or the Bartoberfest website, www.barktoberfest.org.
