Facts about Myrte

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
They say good things come in little packages and that describes Myrtle. She is petite in body, but has a large personality. She has been always the talkative one in her litter. She usually leads the way to explore new places and make new friends. Myrtle came to us when her mom picked a garage that belonged to one of our foster families to have her babies in mid-August, 2016. All have been very healthy and sweet kittens. All are playful and curious, but Myrtle is one of the most adventurous of the group. She isn’t afraid of much, although she isn’t too sure about dogs. She is growing into a soft and cuddly sweetie, especially once she tires out a bit. She has had contact with other cats and cat-friendly dogs. She likely would be fine with children. She had an adopter who fell in love with her, but then could not take her due to a change of circumstances. Myrtle has been dewormed, vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV. To meet this fun and pretty little girl, call 540/586-6100 or go to to get an Adoption Application.

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.
