Hi, my name is Queenie because I like being the Queen. My Dad got ill and could no longer take care of me. I was in the Bedford County Animal Shelter when the nice people from Bedford Humane Society put me in a foster home. My foster home has a really athletic child that I have been teaching to play soccer. With all my energy I need someone like her to keep me in shape. There are dogs, cats, reptiles and a bird in my foster home that I am very interested in. I am still getting used to their sounds and smells. I haven’t had any potty accidents here and they are trying to teach me some manners. I still like to jump up a lot because I’m so excited! A big girl like me could knock someone over very easily. I walk well on a leash unless I see a squirrel or a cat. I like to play fetch inside or out. I want to be a lap dog, but I haven’t found a lap big enough yet. I am good in the kitchen and have not surfed the counters at all. I am looking for someone to play ball with or go hiking and who has a soft spot for me to sleep at night. If you can love me forever, please contact the Bedford Humane Society at 540-586-6100!
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.
