Clinic Corner: Happy, Healthy Cat Month

September E-News (1)

Hello September and Happy, Healthy Cat Month!

Did you know that just like humans, cats need regular care like teeth brushing and cleaning, vaccines, and preventatives to have the best chance at a long healthy life? It’s true! As cats age, they develop common problems that can really effect their health such as gingivitis and dental disease, weight gain, urinary and kidney problems, and much more! The best way to prevent these issues is by seeing your veterinarian for annual health exams to keep their basic preventative treatments and vaccines up to date, and make sure they are as happy and healthy as possible. The best way to treat potential issues with your cat is to catch them early and treat accordingly. The BHS Clinic Team wants to make sure your cat has the best chance at a long, healthy life; which is why during the month of September, in celebration of Happy Healthy Cat Month, we will be offering $5 off all new patient exams as well as $5 off Triple Testing with any new patient exams! Mention this add to claim your offer and call to make an appointment today! 530-343-7917 ext 202.

Sweet Success: Tacoma

Tacoma is the most loving, gentle, and caring pup I’ve ever known. She recently learned how to play fetch and it’s a favorite of hers! We both look forward to the end of the day where we share some of the best cuddles before bed. Tacoma was very timid when I first adopted her, but she has recently become a very social pup once she is given the chance to sniff strangers hands. I may have adopted her, but we rescued each other. Thank you Butte Humane Society!

Volunteer Spotlight: Linda B.

image1 (1)Linda B. has only been a volunteer at BHS since April, but she has already logged 100 hours with our dogs! In addition to walking dogs at the shelter, she also takes advantage of our Dog On The Go program and takes longer term dogs home for the day to decompress. We love seeing her updates of our pups enjoying the yard and cuddles on the couch. When asked about Linda, our Behaviorist Shannon said “Linda is so focused on the dogs when she’s at the shelter. She’s nice & friendly, and you can tell her heart is in it for all of the right reasons. We are so lucky to have someone like her who dedicates time to be with our dogs, helping mold them and prepare them for a forever home.”

Linda told us that her and her mom, who is also a volunteer, love taking dogs on the go and seeing them get adopted. They have a passion for shelter dogs, and they actually adopted a Cattle Dog mix from BHS back in 2000.

Thank you to Linda (and her mom, Lori) for being such incredible volunteers. The BHS Staff really appreciates you – and so do the pups!

 

BHS Internships

Each semester, a handful of students join BHS as intern. Whether they work in Adoptions, the Clinic, or Administration, they all walk away having gained valuable work experience! Check out this write up by former Social Media & Public Relations intern, Cassie, about her experience at BHS!

“My experience as the Social Media and Public Relations intern at Butte Humane Society has been nothing short of fulfilling. The environment was always warm and welcoming, and helped me learn a lot about what I want in my future career endeavors. Working for a nonprofit was also a very rewarding experience, as I felt I was directly contributing to finding homes for our wonderful animals. All of the administrative staff were always very helpful and supportive when getting work done, and it was never boring! As a Communication Studies student, this was directly applicable to my academic and professional skills. I learned so much throughout the duration of the semester, and my involvement with BHS was everything I could have wanted in an internship!”
