Forrest is a two year old Lab-Pit Bull mix who was given to the shelter by his owner because her job prevented her from spending the time with him that he deserves. His previous owner reports that he is fine with other large dogs but should not live with small dogs or cats. She thinks that he would do best in a home with older children due to being a larger dog. Forrest is quite smart and knows the commands sit, stay, paw and go. Forrest is house trained. If he is left alone for long period s of time he should be provided chew toys.

About Somerset County Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

We are animal lovers. We hate the idea of putting an animal down -- for any reason. However, unlike other shelters, we take-in all animals -- including abused and medically neglected animals. There are times when an animal is simply so vicious that we can not responsibly adopt the pet to a family. We have, at other times, been told by our veterinarian, that it is not humane to extend the life of a very sick animal.
We make every effort to find homes for every animal in our care.When our shelter is over-crowded, we rely on a network of "foster families" to take care of our pets. All the while, we have increased our efforts to "get the word out" about our pets (e.g. this website, pictures, newspaper publicity, etc.) Our efforts pay off.
The Staff and Board of Directors at the Humane Society love pets, and our actions bear out that simple fact. Our animal guests get the very best care while they are with us.
Please help! We need volunteers to help us exercise the dogs. We try to walk the dogs each day to provide them with the exercise and attention they so desperately need. You can volunteer as little or as much as you like. If you would be interested in helping us care for our animal guests, please call the shelter at 814-443-2121.
