Sweet Success: Dave

Written by Shelby W., BHS Adoptions Supervisordave

We received an update from Dave’s Adopter, Joyce,  recently. Dave was a special shy kitty that we had in our care for quite some time. He was waiting for a perfect person who would look past his shyness and want to take him home. When his adopter came in looking for an older cat, Dave instantly came out of hiding and jumped into her lap. He knew they were meant to be! Joyce immediately scooped him up and adopted him! In our recent update from Joyce, she has said that he is still getting used to his surroundings, and that he still is a bit shy. BUT she loves him anyways and is willing to let him take as much time as he needs. Joyce said she will always remember how sweet he was to her  the day she adopted him, and is willing to let him take his time in her home. She has another cat and they have even met a few times and seem to be doing great together. And his cute new nickname is Davie. We love hearing from our adopters! And Dave holds a special place in our staffs memories.

Volunteer Spotlight: Shirley M.

shirley M.Our latest volunteer of the month is the incredible Shirley M.!

As a volunteer at the shelter, Shirley has made quite an impression on the staff and animals at BHS. She has given over 150 hours of her time in the past six months! Her hard work and dedication to the animals is noticed and appreciated by all. On top of volunteering in both the dog and cat rooms, Shirley recently completed Level 2 dog training, and she was a fospice provider for a sweet cat named Mink. Because of her compassion and kindness, Mink was able to spend his last days in a happy, loving home.

Shirley began volunteering at BHS because she loves cats and dogs, and could not think of a better way to fill her spare time. She loves the people who work at the shelter and appreciated everyone’s help and support when she started volunteering. Shirley – we appreciate you!

When Shirley is at the shelter, she loves taking the dogs out for walks, cuddling with the cats, and getting lots of puppy kisses! One of Shirley’s favorite volunteer moments came when she was working the BHS booth at the Thursday night Farmer’s Market. She was visited by one of the dogs she remembered from the shelter, and was thrilled to see how happy he looked with his new family!

We don’t know what we would do without wonderful volunteers like Shirley! Thank you so much for everything you do for the animals.

Sweet Success: Link & Navi

“We had been looking for a dog to complete our home for quite some time. It was originally only going to be one dog. We wanted to make sure they’d be a good fit for us. I had been interested in Link and Navi for awhile but it was convincing my boyfriend that two dogs were the right choice.

One day after work he had come home and asked me about the pair. I explained that two would be great because they’d love on each other and keep each other company. It was then he told me he went to Butte Humane to meet them and said they were the sweetest and coolest dogs he’d met so far.

The next day I went and adopted Link and Navi.

When we first brought them to the house, they immediately made themselves at home on our couch. We felt like they had been waiting for us and that we had them all along. Link has been such a joy to have. He is always by our side and loves to play chase. Navi has been such a love bug and enjoys cuddling. Her favorite thing is still to play catch and run around. Both are so loyal to us and we feel so lucky to have them in our lives. They also love each other and there was no separating these two, we’re so glad we didn’t.

These two have been to the beach, in the snow, camping, hiking and on roadtrips all over the place. We love bringing them with us everywhere we go and giving them the best life we can.

We couldn’t be happier with our choice to give them a forever home, our house is complete now and full of love.”
