Our Goal

Life changing. It’s hard to imagine life without your pet once you find them. Here at Forsyth Humane Society, you can be a life-changer, too. With our goal of increasing the save rate of all shelter cats and dogs in the county from 36% to 90% by 2023, FHS is committed to changing the future of animal welfare in our community.

With your help, in 2019 FHS increased the save rate of shelter dogs and cats in Forsyth County to 77%.

Partner with us and change a life.

The Forsyth Humane Society will achieve our goal of increasing the save rate of shelter dogs and cats by:

Adopting dogs and cats into loving local homes and transporting dogs and cats to NC and out-of-state rescues to find homes

Growing a highly active foster and volunteer network

Caring for the emotional and physical needs of each animal entering our shelters

Educating our community about spay/neuter and animal welfare, and supporting the underserved population with pet food and veterinary resources

Financial and in-kind support from our network of donors, supporters, and partners
