Man's Best Friend Friday, Meet Jake

It's man's best friend Friday and today meet one of the many dogs up for adoption at the Humane Society of Forsyth County.

Jake is a very sweet American Staffordshire Terrier mix with an estimated birthdate of January 1, 2011. Jake is an energetic young adult who would make a great running or walking buddy. He enjoys chasing a soccer ball and would love his forever home to have a fenced yard. Jake would do best in a home without children or other pets. With proper training he'll make a loyal companion.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

  • Want some exercise and fun? How about volunteering to walk and play with the poor, lonely dogs at the shelter? Here's how: Become a Rescue Walker!

Did you know at any given time roughly 70 percent of all the animals in our program are in foster homes? That is an incredible number made possible by people who care passionately about animals and believe in the NO KILL mission.

We work very hard to make fostering a positive experience for anyone willing to provide temporary care for one more animal. We accommodate special circumstances such as vacation-coverage, switch-out for unsuitable matches, short-term-only restrictions, breed-specific preferences and even "low-shed” or "housetrained-only" requests. We have dedicated Dog and Cat Foster Program Coordinators who are available even for late night emergency phone calls from foster parents. Read here for more details about fostering with us.

Do you want be a part of the most important aspect of NO KILL rescue? Give us the space to save ONE MORE LIFE by joining our Foster Program.
