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.  

As of 2019, the save rate has increased to 77%. Partner with us and change a life.
