Just look at this gorgeous fellow! Atticus is of unknown heritage but a good guess is a beagle/lab cross. He has a lovely tri-color short coat of a beagle with the size and temperament of a smaller lab. Atticus was rescued from a kill county shelter as his time was up. He is about a year and a half old, is affectionate, curious, playful, gentle, friendly and eager to learn just what you want of him. He is learning to walk better on a leash, and “sit” and “down “on command (treats helpful!). The prior owner did report that he is good with kids and other animals. Our two resident dogs enjoy their play time with him and he seems very calm around the cats. He also reported that he was “mostly” housebroken. I can report that he does “his business” on walks and not in his pen and can hold it a long time which is a good indication that with attention, he should be easy to fully housebreak. Atticus has spent several nights in a crate without complaint or accident. He should make a wonderful family pet with love and more training. Won’t you give this lovely boy and second chance in life?? Email the foster parent at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 540-586-4691 for more information or to meet this cutie.
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.
