Forsyth County Animal Shelter to Add Mobile Vet Unit, Rebrand as Pet Resource Center

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter will be rebranded as the Forsyth County Pet Resource Center in Fall 2023 to reflect new services provided by the department for the community.

“For years, the Forsyth County Animal Shelter has been proudly dedicated to rescuing, reuniting and rehoming animals in Forsyth County,” said Animal Shelter Manager Cindy Iacopella. “Along with continuing to be the only open admission shelter in Forsyth County, we are excited to also soon provide enhanced community engagement with current and prospective pet owners, as well as mobile veterinary services to help keep pets and people together.”

Along with continuing its current shelter and adoption operations, the Pet Resource Center will be based around service, including various new educational programs, as well as the addition of a mobile veterinary clinic vehicle.

The Companion Animal Resource and Education (CARE) unit will be equipped with two surgery tables, a digital X-ray machine, caging for adoption events and other machines needed to perform surgeries such as spaying and neutering. The CARE unit will be utilized for community adoption events, vaccination and microchipping clinics, Community Cat Trap Neuter Vaccinate and Return (TNVR) programming and it will provide scheduled mobile veterinary services to areas of need in the County.

The rebranding of the Animal Shelter to the Pet Resource Center will occur in Fall 2023 in conjunction with the addition of the CARE unit and new community programs.
