Presentation Details

Humane Society of Forsyth County: A No Kill Shelter

Authors: Logan Phipps

Faculty Supervisor: Anelise Farris, Ph.D.

Community Partner: Humane Society of Forsyth County


Animal Welfare is a huge issue in our community, and it goes unseen by many people. During my project I got to learn about the issues animals go through in my own community. I was allowed to sanitize, bathe, and walk the animals. This project is a way to showcase our efforts as a class and community to experience and learn the deep-rooted issues. Animal welfare was my chosen topic because I was unaware of the issues in my community involving animals. When I began working with the animals the joy on their faces made everyday worth it. The humane society takes very good care of their animals, and I was glad to be a part of that. Overall I learned many things while I was volunteering, and it was a very humbling experience.
