Hi my name is April and I am a sweet wiggly girl! I am about one year old and weigh around 45 pounds. I am very loving and love to get rubs from my humans and give lots of kisses! I know how to sit and it is apparent to my foster mom that at some point someone taught me not to jump. Sometimes I want to jump but correct myself before I actually do! How someone could give me up is mind boggling to my foster mom!

I do well with most dogs but should not go to a home with a dominant female or with senior dogs. I have not met any cats yet but if you are interested in adopting me and want to know whether I am cat friendly or not my foster mom can test me! I am extremely kid friendly and I light up each time my foster mom's niece and nephew come to visit. I would loveeee to go to a home with some human siblings to call my own!

I walk okay on a leash but my foster mom is working with me to improve my leash manners. I enjoy spending time in the back yard and romping around with my foster siblings but also like to snuggle up on the couch and watch tv. I am crate trained and house trained and I seem to be past the chewing stage! I get a little protective over my food when other dogs get too close so it is best that I am fed in my crate or separately from the other pooches.

My foster mom always tells me I am beautiful and as sweet as pie. She is so weird sometimes... Either way I am happy she opened her home to me because I was tired of being in the shelter!

Now that I am with FCHS I am all fixed up! I am spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed and on monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention. I am so excited to find my new home and to have a forever family to call my own. Could it be you? If you would like to learn more about me please e-mail my foster mom at! If you are pretty sure I am the gal for you please go ahead and fill out an application at

My adoption fee is $225 which is nothing compared to all the unconditional love you will get in return! XOX from your future furry forever friend!

About Paws For Life NC A FCHS Program

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.
