Applejack (AJ): Neutered male born 4/5/2010
Sweet Applejack (AJ or JackJack for short) is looking for a family of his own. He is often quite vocal, walking around the house trilling at whoever will listen to him. He would make an excellent companion for someone willing to give him the time and space he needs to adjust to new settings. It has taken nearly six months of love and patience, but JackJack finally seems comfortable in his foster home and will seek me out to cuddle or play. His favorite game is playing fetch with his toy mousey, though he has yet to bring the mousey toy back to me. He loves when I throw the mousey up in the air so he can show off his supreme jumping skills, catching the mousey in midair and then swatting it across the floor. JackJack insists that we play this game every night before bedtime. As with most cats, JackJack is cautious with new animals. He gets along very well with my younger male cats, both right around 1 year old. He primarily ignores the large dog that lumbers around the house. And he continues to try to get the two adult female cats to play with him, though they want nothing to do with him. Given time, JackJack would probably do fine in a home with other pets. However, he would probably adjust more quickly to a home where he is the only pet or where there are only one or two other pets. Whatever the environment, JackJack simply needs love and patience.

Rescue Group Info...
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.
Until we are able to build our No-Kill Shelter, our adoptable pets live in foster homes throughout Bedford County and surrounding areas. If you are interested in meeting a pet, please submit an adoption application or contact our main office.
We also hold monthly adoption events at our Headquarters and the Bedford Tractor Supply. Visit our website or our Facebook page for dates and times. If you would like to be added to our monthly events email list, please send a request to email@example.com.
Have you discovered a pet you wish to adopt? Great!
Now, the first step is to complete an adoption application on our website at http://bhsva.org/adoptions-home.htm. 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.
