Year End 2021

October 25, 2021 - January 31, 2022 11:59 pm

As 2021 ends and the season of giving begins, we would like to share with you the impact our donors, volunteers, fosters, and staff have made this year. As of writing this letter, the Humane Society of Forsyth County has saved 639 animals this year. Our Pet Food Pantry, which provides food and cat litter to families in need, has fed over 1,000 animals monthly; through SNAP, we've been able to spay/neuter 938 animals, our low-cost vaccine clinic has seen over 2,198 patients, and with the help of our amazing fosters, we've housed 140 in foster care. All of this wouldn't be possible without YOU. This holiday season, we are asking that you keep the animals of the Humane Society of Forsyth County in mind.

To continue and expand upon our mission to serve the underprivileged and homeless animal population in the area, we are asking for a financial gift this holiday season.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.

In February, we received an emergency call regarding an injured Yorkie named Princess. As soon as Princess was placed in our care, she was examined by our on-staff vet, who quickly determined that Princess was suffering from a fractured left leg and would require surgery. Princess was placed with a foster for round-the-clock care and the next day was taken to Forsyth Animal Hospital. Upon examination, we were advised that surgery was required to repair Princess's fractured distal radius and ulna. We further discovered that once the bones were set, they would need pins to keep them in place as her leg healed. 

With your help, we were able to get Princess the surgery she needed. Due to the severity of her injury, the fracture would take several months to heal before the pins could be removed. She has since made a full recovery and is living a happy and fulfilling life.

Because of you, we were also able to help Garfield & Tova. Garfield was born into our program, where we quickly discovered that he was struggling to use his back legs. We immediately began physical therapy, and he was diagnosed with Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Cerebellar hypoplasia, sometimes called wobbly cat syndrome, is a congenital condition in cats that is neither contagious nor progressive. CH affects the cerebellum of the kittens, which is the area of the brain that controls fine motor movement, balance, and coordination. The affected cats often have noticeable symptoms from birth, ranging from mild head bobbing and high stepping to more severe signs like tremors and the inability to walk. Shortly after Garfield was diagnosed, we were asked by a partnering agency to take Tova, also affected by CH. Both Garfield and Tova were placed in the same foster home and with physical therapy, they are fully functional and happy with their former foster and other fur siblings.

On behalf of all our animals and our family at the Humane Society of Forsyth County, we would like to thank you for your donation and support from the bottom of our hearts. We could not do it without you. If you are interested in learning more about our organization and/or providing support in another way, please get in touch with us at shelter@forsythpets.org.
