ADOPTED! 12 Strays of Christmas: Meet Forrest

(WMC-TV) – Have you thought this season about opening up your heart and your home to a sweet animal in need?

This year, we introduce to you "The 12 Strays of Christmas".

Action News 5 is partnering with the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County to share with you 12 animals in need of homes this holiday season. We will introduce you to a new pet each day through December 22. And each pet featured in the "12 Strays of Christmas" comes with a very special adoption fee of just $12.

Meet Forrest

Forrest is a 3-year-old wire-haired mix. He weighs about 50 pounds and is a favorite among staff and volunteers at the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County.

This young pup loves to play fetch and is very intelligent. After he gets all of his playing and showing off taken care of, he loves to sit on laps and snuggle.

Forrest was brought to the humane society in August 2011 after being hit by a car. He also had heartworms, but now he is completely healthy and wants to bring his positive energy and smile into a loving home.

He is great with children ages 10 and older, and he would like to be the only dog in the household.

If you are interested in making Forrest the newest member of your family, contact the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County at 901-937-3900.

The $12 adoption fee for Forrest includes the following:

  • Spay/neuter surgery
  • Rabies vaccination
  • Age appropriate vaccines
  • De-worming treatments
  • Heartworm testing (dogs only)
  • FIV/Leukemia testing (cats only)
  • Microchip for permanent identification
  • Humane Society ID tag
  • Follow up calls with our Adoption Counselors to make sure your new pet is adjusting well
  • A goodie bag with coupons and some toys
  • About the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County
