Thank you for a great 2016

We would like to take a moment to thank our community for all of your support in 2016.

First, a special thanks to Project Pearl who sponsored 81 cats and 24 dogs for a total of $6,431 in sponsorships throughout 2016! These sponsorships pay a portion of the adoption fee in order to help animals who may otherwise be overlooked (like older dogs or cats) have a better chance at being adopted. Their medical foster program gave second chances to 68 animals who otherwise would not have qualified for our adoption program. If you are interested in making a donation to assist with sponsorships or medical fosters, you can contact Project Pearl at projectpearl@triad.rr.com.

In 2016 1,251 animals were adopted and 328 were transferred to our Community Care Partner programs, who agree to follow adoption requirements such as spaying and neutering the animals in their care. The Community Care and Almost Home programs provide additional adoption, rescue & foster care resources for the Forsyth County Animal Shelter. Currently over 40 animal rescue, welfare, veterinarian and professional organizations participate in the Community Care and Almost Home Programs.

We’d like to recognize AARF. Forsyth Humane Society, Schnauzer Rescue of the Carolinas, and Siamese Cat Rescue as well as numerous other CCP organizations who take the time to transfer animals from our care into their facilities or foster homes.

Last, but most definitely not least. we really appreciate our volunteers. They have put in approximately eight thousand hours this year helping the animals in our adoption program.
