Meet Smokey! Smokey was rescued from the local pound after being turned in because he wasn't wanted anymore. He has spent most of his life on a chain and is learning about the good things in life. He is also learning house manners and is doing great with housetraining. He also loves playing outside with the other dogs which are females and neutered males.
Smokey needs a home where he can be a part of the family and be taken on nice walks and have someone to play ball with. He would do well with another dog to play with or as the only dog. He is good with children, but older children would be better because he does try to herd and may nip the heels of younger children when they run. He does not do well with cats. If you are interested in meeting sweet Smokey please email his foster mom, Sandy at email@example.com
An approved adoption application, a home visit, and adoption fee is required. He will not be adopted to a home with invisible fencing.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
