Attempted dog poisoning in Ardmore Neighborhood!
Two dogs in Winston-Salem had a near brush with death recently when an unknown person(s) placed food poisoned with rat pellets into their fenced yard. The dogs were not a nuisance, and their conscientious owners had allowed the pets to play in the yard only when they were at home to monitor for barking.
This is any pet owner’s nightmare and the threat is still present in our community.
The press release below describes a reward being offered by Fur-Ever Friends to catch the perpetrator(s) of this crime.

Please help us to discover who did this and stop them before they repeat this behavior or escalate to harming people!

A Note to our Supporters
Advocate, Educate, Support…
Franklin & Peabody Morykwas’ Fur-Ever Friends of NC is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of animals in the Piedmont Triad. Together with individuals like you and other organizations, we can continue to make a difference.
Our organization helps to fund crucial, life-saving care for abandoned, abused and neglected animals that are often injured or ill through the Rico Fund. Homes are frequently found for animals in need. Dedicated volunteer advocates encourage lawmakers and officials at various levels of government to develop policies that improve the lives of animals.
You can make a vital difference in the lives of sick, injured animals or abused dogs and cats in our area. Fur-Ever Friends is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported solely through private tax-deductible donations from people who care about animals. All of the funds we collect go 100% to assist animals in need. When you share your time, talent or financial resources, you serve as a meaningful link to a happier future for an animal right in your own community.
You can’t change the world by helping one animal, but you can change the world for that animal.
Houses for Hounds is a local program supported by a variety of animal welfare groups for the purpose of providing free dog houses to lower income Forsyth County residents.
The program began at the Career Center, where first-year carpentry students constructed the dog houses. This introduced the students to the use of power tools, and the finished product gave them something to be proud of and a way to give back to the community.
We Need Your Help!
We have a dire need for medium to large dog houses that can accommodate dogs 50 pounds or larger. Do you have a dog house that is not needed and in good condition? Are you able to donate a new house or give a monetary donation?
If you are able to help, please bring your dog house to the Forsyth County Animal Shelter (5570 Sturmer Park Circle, W-S, 27105) or to the Forsyth Humane Society at 61 Miller Street, Winston-Salem (next to Whole Foods). From there, the houses will be distributed to deserving families. If you are unable to deliver your dog house, contact Keith Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will arrange pickup and delivery. THANKS!
