Hi! My name is Serena and I am a beautiful one year old brindle hound mix. I am a 50 lb female

and already spayed and up-to-date on my vaccinations, heart worm preventative and flea/tick

medication. I am a moderate-energy dog who loves to go on long walks with my mom and

wrestle with my dog siblings.

My perfect forever home would be an active family who loves to go on walks and play with me,

or maybe even have a fenced in yard. My mom says I have excellent leash manners, except

when I see something that looks like fun to chase. Since I am part hound, I love to track and

chase small animals, like cats, bunnies and butterflies! I love to play with other dogs, although

sometimes I get a little shy and need some extra time to warm up to new friends. I'm a really

great wrestler and can hold my own with the big dogs! I really love playing with my other dog

friends. I'm not so sure about cats though. If they like to run, I like to chase them. However, if

they ignore me, swat me or just stay still, I will leave them alone. If my forever home has cats, I

will need an experienced owner to properly introduce me and keep an eye on me. I am also

okay with children. My foster family has a toddler and I tolerate her pretty well. She likes to give

me hugs and kisses and I am happy to return the favor. She also likes to drop food for me to

eat, so that really makes me like her!

My mom says I am doing great with my crate and potty training (I haven't had any accidents in

the house since I figured out the whole concept). I love to hang out in my crate with new toys

when my family has to leave for a little while. I feel safe in there and would like a family who will

continue this training with me. I am still getting used to being a house dog after my former life on

the street and I like it a lot so far. I will even relax now and sleep on my bed or hang out chewing

bones while my family watches TV. However, I am still learning the difference between my toys

and theirs, so I'm best left in a crate while unsupervised. My mom says that I am super smart

and easily trainable, whatever that means. I am a quiet dog, only barking when there is

someone I don't know coming to the door. I also love to chew and have very strong jaws, so my

perfect family would be able to provide me with lots of chew toys and bones to play with. I hope

you will consider adding me to your family!

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. www.fchsnc.org 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.
