Meet Wanda, a Wonderful Companion Dog

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

Wanda is a Lab mix born on September 22, 2009. Wanda is the perfect dog, a true angel and is perfect for a family with children. She is gentle, house trained, and has just enough energy to play ball with you, but she will not wear you out needing lots of exercise. She loves to ride in the car and play "catch the ball" with anyone who is willing to throw the ball for her. She gets along great with other dogs and loves to be loved on by people. She is currently in boarding and she is missing a loving couch to sleep on at night.

Maia (not pictured) is a German Shepherd born on March 15, 2009. She is so sweet and is house trained. She is a people pleaser and listens very well. Maia has a little separation anxiety when left alone, so she needs to be with a family who can be with her as much as possible. This girl does NOT like to be in a kennel, so I would suggest she go to a family who will have a lot of time to spend with her (or take her to doggie daycare). She is a low-key girl who loves to get "loved on," and would be perfect for a retired couple or a home with a stay-at-home parent and kids. She also gets along great with other dogs, but she is not a big player...she prefers lounging.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

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.
