Emmanuel (Manny for short) is an incredibly cute and playful kitten that is full of love and joy despite a very rough start to life. Manny came to us when a man took him to the vet after seeing him get hit by a car as a kitten. This poor boy had a broken pelvis and his injuries have left him with a partially functioning tail. The vet will continue to monitor his progress to determine if a portion of his tail should be removed. At this point, however, he seems to be doing very well.
Today, several months after his accident, Manny is running, jumping, and playing like a champ. He enjoys playing chase with the other cats in his foster home. He’s still a bit unsure of the large dog that visits them every day, but he is getting brave enough to not run away when he sees him.
Manny loves being close to his people, purring as soon as he sees you walk through the door. This boy’s amazing spirit shines through and you can’t help but smile when you’re with him. If you’re interested in meeting this shining light, email email@example.com or call 540-586-6100 for an application.
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.
