Important Note

Gordon is best friends with BunBun. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Gordon is strikingly handsome with his white sleek fur & clear emerald eyes. He was born in Spring, 2012. He loves attention & thinks he is still small enough to ride on shoulders and wrap his body around your neck. When he was a kitten, he rode in a red wagon in our dog parades because he was afraid of nothing. He is more cautious now---we think he just wants to settle down with his very own person & window. He still loves to play & is too rough for some cats. Gordon would love to be adopted with his best friend BunnyButt because together they bring out the best in each other. BHS will offer a special adoption fee if they stay together. He is current on vaccines & has been neutered, microchipped, & tested for FeLV & FIV. To learn more about Gordon, call BHS at 540/586-6100 or go to to fill out an adoption application.

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.

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.
