Hi there! My name is Sheldon and I am an adorable 5 month old lab mix puppy from FCHS's Big Bang litter! Life started out a little rough for me, as I was as stray for the first couple months of my life. But then FCHS came to the rescue and took in me and 6 of my siblings! I am approximately 35 pounds and will probably get a little bit bigger-my foster mom says she thinks I will be about 50 pounds when I am done growing. I currently live in a foster home with two other dogs and three cats, and I get along with everybody. I am a sweet laid back boy who loves to snuggle and give kisses. I love children and have two at my foster home that play with me and rub my belly! I am still working on my potty training, but my foster mom says I am on the home stretch! I try to remember to go outside, and it helps if I am on a schedule and taken out regularly so I don't forget and have an accident. I am crate trained and will go right in for a snack when my family has to run errands or go to work. I am still a young little guy who loves to play and chew, so I will need a lot of toys to keep me happy and distracted from things I am not supposed to have. I like rope toys and squeaky toys, but my favorite is my Kong. I really like to have my Kong in my crate to keep me occupied while my foster family is away. I am learning basic commands and have sit mastered! I have even learned not to get too excited and stand up before I get my reward. I walk well on a leash and don't pull when my foster family takes me for walks around the farm where I live.

I have been neutered, microchipped, and am up to date on all of my vaccinations. I am also current on flea and tick preventative, as well as heartworm prevention.

My adoption fee is $250. If you have any questions, please email my foster mom, Katie at

About Franklin County Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

FCHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised entirely of volunteers from Franklin County and throughout the state and country. It was formed in 2002 to help solve the problem of unwanted dogs and cats in this region. Its long-term goal is to build an animal shelter where area pets can find safe refuge until they can be adopted to permanent homes. Its immediate goals are to develop a strong foster program to remove adoptable animals from the Franklin County Animal Control facility and to decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats in Franklin/North Wake counties through spay/neuter public education programs

Our Adoption Process...

1.After you find A Dog or Cat, review the description of the foster you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular foster. The picture of the foster does not tell the whole story.

2.Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the foster you have chosen is a good match for your home. has the applications. This is step one.

3.Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email letting you know if the foster would be a good match for you and making arrangements for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events. Sometimes a foster is best shown at the foster home due to his or her personality. We will let you know where the foster home is and arrange a time that works both for you and the foster home.We do require that everyone who will live with the foster to come and meet them. There is a chance we may tell you that the foster you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another foster.

4.If, after meeting the foster you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. Someone from the Franklin County Humane Society will call and do the visit. The foster does not come on the home visit. Home visits are required before any foster leaves our program.

5.If more than one person applies and meets the same foster, all things being equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6.Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement. Please read the agreement carefully to make sure that you understand what you will be agreeing to.

7.An adoption fee of $250 for dogs under 6 months $225 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the fosters while in foster care. All FCHS fosters are altered, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the fosters. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the fosters.

8.Congratulations! You are on your way to having you new furry companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your foster at any time.
