HSFC relies heavily on its volunteers. Our budget permits very few paid employees, so we could not function without your dedication. There are numerous areas where you can help our orphaned animals. Very likely, we can find something that you will enjoy doing. Donating just one hour per week will make a huge difference in what we can accomplish for the homeless cats and dogs of Forsyth County...and they are so appreciative.
