How to Surrender a Pet

Forsyth Humane Society (FHS) is a no kill adoption facility and currently intakes dogs & cats from a waitlist. Below are the procedures for getting a dog or cat on our waitlist.

 

Cat Wait List Instructions

  • Complete a waitlist form for each cat.
  • Forms are available at the adoption center or you can fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
  • Please be prepared to supply a photo of your cat(s).
  • Once your form and photo have been received, your cat(s) will be placed on the waitlist and an FHS representative will reach out to you when a space becomes available.
When you are notified that a space is available for your cat, a FIV/FeLV test with a negative result will be required for admittance. You will want to plan for a 30 minute wait period while the test is completed. Details regarding cost are listed in the waitlist.

Please note:  Cats must be friendly to be accepted into the adoption program.  For the safety of our volunteers and adopters, cats with aggressive tendencies will not be considered for intake.

Dog Wait List Instructions
  • Complete a waitlist form for each dog.
  • Forms are available at the adoption center or you may fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
  • Please be prepared to supply a photo of your dog(s).
  • Once your form and photo have been received, your dog(s) will be placed on the waitlist and an FHS representative will reach out to you when a space becomes available.
When you are notified that a space is available for your dog(s), a heartworm test with a negative test result is required prior to admittance (for dogs 6 month or older).  Your dog will also have to have a behavioral assessment.  You will want to plan for a 30 minute wait period while the tests are completed. Details regarding cost are listed in the waitlist

Please note: Dogs must be friendly to be accepted into the adoption program.  For the safety of our volunteers and adopters, dogs with aggressive tendencies will not be considered for intake.

Wait Time Estimates
As animals are adopted, we call in animals next on the waitlist.  The wait time can range from a couple weeks to several months. Young kittens and puppies, as well as small dogs, are adopted most frequently, so the wait times for these animals are usually two weeks or less.  In prime kitten season, the wait time may increase.
