About Forsyth Humane Society
Forsyth Humane Society is a non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to enriching our community by promoting the compassionate treatment of cats and dogs.
We are committed to:
- Placing cats and dogs into loving homes
- Advancing community understanding of the benefits of animal companionship
- Providing needed resources to the pet community
- Supporting a no-kill adoption center
- The spaying/neutering of dogs and cats
For over 72 years, the Forsyth Humane Society has acted as an advocate for the unwanted and uncared for feline and canine animals in our community. Our chapter began thanks in large part to D.D. and Lydia Schouler whose dog was trained to catch the bus, with a coin in his mouth, and bring Mr. Schouler his lunch each day. Years later, Mrs. Schouler honored the memory of such loyalty by establishing in her will the D.D.Schouler Fund for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. From there, we are now known as the Forsyth Humane Society.
Forsyth Humane Society has grown over the years and now serves as the leading nonprofit organization in the Triad providing animal resource information, humane education, low cost spay/neuter assistance, and promotion of responsible pet care.
