Marty FIV+'s Story...
Hello, my name is Marty. I was found by a kind lady on a warm summer day. I was very hungry and thin. I came to Bedford Humane Society where I was given a comfy place to sleep and all the food I could eat. As you can see I have plumped out rather well and you can no longer feel my ribs. I went for a checkup and they found that I was positive for FIV. I am around 5 years old and would love a home of my own. I do have a cute roommate named Michaela, she is also positive for FIV, but she wants to eat my food! I need a home with other FIV positive cats or by myself as a single cat. If you would like to meet me or my cute roommate Michaela call 540-586-6100 or e-mail

About Bedford Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

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

Our Adoption Process...

Have you discovered a pet you wish to adopt? Great!

Now, the first step is to complete an adoption application on our website at 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.
