Fur-Ever Friends of N.C. canvasses area neighborhoods and relies on tips from community members to find dogs and cats in need of shelter and warmth during the cold winter months. Since 2015, our volunteers have distributed hundreds of dog houses and pet food along with bags of pine shavings to help dogs stay warm, dry and well fed. Our efforts have recently evolved into hosting pet food distribution events throughout the year at specific locations around Forsyth County where people come to us for pet food and supplies.
Fur-Ever Friends of N.C., in 2021, began partnering with churches who provide a weekly or bi-weekly food pantry for community members with bagged pet food. FFNC currently is partnering with four churches and other community groups to issue an average of over 800 pounds per month of bagged pet food to community pet owners.
