The Humane Society of Forsyth County (HSFC) is an independent, privately funded, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving the people and pets of Forsyth County for over 44 years. Established in 1975, HSFC has adopted more than 26,000 animals into permanent, loving homes.

As the largest no-kill, non-profit humane center in Forsyth County, GA HSFC is dedicated to:
• Saving the county’s homeless cats and dogs
• Reducing pet over-population
• Educating our community about “responsible” pet ownership

How we do this is with people like YOU! Even the smallest contribution can make a BIG DIFFERENCE.

As a private, independent organization, we are not affiliated with the ASPCA, Humane Society of the US or Associated Humane Societies. HSFC is not a government agency and receives no funding from federal, state or local governments. Our ability to care for the community’s animals is supported solely by modest fees and donations. All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.
