When Alfie was rescued from the pound he was covered from head to toe in
mats, fleas and filth. He was found running loose and no one ever came to
claim him. As soon as he was rescued he went straight to get groomed and
has never looked back! Alfie is a very happy dog! He doesn't know a
stranger. He is friendly with everyone- people, kids, cats, dogs and even
chickens! His greatest love is his tennis ball. He will play fetch
endlessly! Since he came to us he has lost about 7 pounds and is looking
good! Alfie is partially potty trained. He is mainly an outdoor dog at his
current foster home. When he does get to come in, he has occasionally
urinated in the house but he is already getting much better. His future
home would have to be committed to putting the time in to crate training
him and potty training him. Alfie would love a home where someone is home
often- he is used to having someone with him all day. He loves riding in
the car and going to the park for walks. Alfie has been vaccinated,
tested negative for heartworm and tick diseases. He is current on
heartworm and flea preventative. To learn more about Alfie please contact

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.
