Facts about Skylar

  • Sex: Male

Meet Skylar
Skylar is a handsome big gentle bear of a kitty. We think he was born about 2013 or 2012. He is part of the group of cats that Bedford Humane Society worked with other local rescues on removing from a very crowded household & we think he is father to many of the younger cats that have his same handsome brown mackeral tabby markings, although he is especially handsome with his big head. Something about his chin makes him look very wise. Once he trusts you & shows you his playful side, you realize he is also a little bit of a jokester. Skylar is like the rest of this group—he has had to learn so many basic things, like to trust people, to feel safe by himself, to use a litterbox, to play with toys. He still will hide when he is unsure, but he has come so far. Skylar will need someone who can be patient & work with him as he settles into a new home with more new experiences. He would do best in a quiet, calm setting. He is great with other cats, even many other cats, but is frightened by dogs or small children. Skylar is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, & tested for FeLV & FIV. To hear more about Skylar, call 540/586-6100 or go to to complete an Adoption Application & we can set up a meeting for you so you can see this handsome boy for yourself.

About Bedford Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

The Bedford Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1994 and dedicated to eliminating the overpopulation of cats and dogs in Bedford County through education, spay/neuter programs, and companion animal adoptions. We are NOT the tax-funded Bedford County shelter on Falling Creek Road, although we do try to help the animals there whenever possible. Our adoptable pets live in volunteer foster homes where they receive the care and attention they deserve while awaiting a permanent home.

Our various programs for Bedford County and City of Bedford residents include::

•A low cost spay/neuter program for area pets
•The construction of a no kill animal shelter, The Vernon D Lybolt Adoption Center, at 829 Ole Turnpike Road in Bedford.
•Find homes for abandoned and homeless animals through our adoption and transport programs.
•Help pet owners with unexpected expenses involving their pets, through our Emergency Fund program.
•Provide humane traps and spay/neuter subsidies for feral cats through our Forgotten Felines program.
•Humane Education program for area Scout troops and schools.

Our Adoption Process...

Have you discovered a pet you wish to adopt? Great!

Now, the first step is to complete an adoption application on our website at This is not a commitment to adopt. It is simply the first step in the process.

We will review your application for preliminary approval before asking the foster parent to contact you to set up a time to meet the pet. You may also have concerns about how the animal will fit your home environment. When the foster parent contacts you, you will be able to discuss your concerns with someone who has first-hand experience with the pet.

After you meet the animal, you and the foster parent can decide if this is definitely the forever pet for you.
