Adopt A Pet

“THERE ARE NO BAD DOGS IN FLOYD COUNTY.”

 

So said one happy pet owner about her companions, Rocky and Rufus, and the many great dogs we rescue here in Floyd. As for cats… well… like all true Floydians, the cats here are a little different. They’re the friendliest, most loyal felines you could ever hope to meet. The Floyd County Humane Society has many remarkable cats and dogs looking for new homes.

 

All animals adopted through us are spayed or neutered, de-wormed, and are up to date on vaccinations.

 

The Floyd County Pound also has dogs for adoption, who need homes as soon as possible.

Meet some of them on Facebook.

CRITTERS AROUND TOWN

 

These cats and dogs belong to private individuals but, for one reason or another, are looking for new homes. If you are interested in adopting one of these pets, contact the owner directly. You do not need to submit an application to the Humane Society.  ​UPDATING FCHS ONCE PER MONTH WILL KEEP YOUR PET LISTED.  THANK YOU FOR HELPING THESE PETS FIND HOMES!

* The Floyd County Humane Society reserves the right to deny any application on a companion animal for any reason.  The applicant will always be informed as to why they were denied.  Denying an application is not a personal attack on the applicant, in many cases, the denial is because we, at the Humane Society, do not feel that the animal and family will be a good match.  This does not mean that the applicant would certainly be denied in the future. 

 

Some of the reasons the applicant may be denied:  bad vet or personal references, lying on the application, refusing a home check,  past history of returning/rehoming animals, or inadequate supervision.  In some cases, we receive two applications on the same animal.  In this case, it is up to the discretion of the Humane Society to decide which family would be the best fit for the animal.

The Floyd County Humane Society is staffed solely by volunteers.  The application process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on how soon references can be reached and if there are any concerns about the application.  Unfortunately, some applications are denied, but it is done in the best interest of the animal.  If there are any questions or concerns as to why an application was denied, the applicant can reach out to the contact person or email the Society.
