Houses for Hounds
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
We Need Your Help!
There is 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 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 interested in obtaining one of these dog houses and feel that you qualify,
you can submit a request online or call 703-2480
Monday through Friday during business hours.
The Houses for Hounds program was developed through the coordinated efforts of the
WS/FC Career Center Carpentry Program, Forsyth County Animal Control, Fur-Ever Friends
Adoption and Outreach Center, and the Forsyth Humane Society.
