This exciting project will result in a very special place where animals are saved, where second chances are generously given and where people and animals in Butte County come together to help, heal, learn and love.
While staff and volunteers have done the best they can with the resources they have, we know our capacity to serve will grow exponentially with this new facility. Our new shelter will be built entirely on gifts from community members who understand and want to support the needs of stray and abused animals here in the North State.
All gifts of $20,000 or more will be honored on a prominent donor wall.
Can the animals count on your help?

“The needs of cats are different than those of dogs or rabbits, so special attention will be given to match the natural needs of the animals to their spaces. Things like temperature control, sanitation, noise reduction, ventilation and lighting are critical to the well-being of the animals and will also help make the new shelter inviting and warm for our visitors, volunteers and employees.”
—Katrina Woodcox, Executive Director
How to Donate…
Gifts of Cash
The easiest and most direct way of supporting Butte Humane Society’s Capital Campaign is a gift of cash.
Gifts of Stock
Avoid capital gains through a gift of highly appreciated stock while taking a full value deduction on your tax returns.
Recurring Monthly Donation
Recognizing that many caring people may not have the capacity to make a sizable gift at any one time, we suggest the alternative of making a smaller gift on a monthly basis.
Many corporate employers will match their employees’ gift to a 501(c)(3) non-profit. If your company has such a program, please request their matching gift form and send the completed form to us.
Leave a legacy of love by remembering Butte Humane Society in your will.
Services or Items
If you have a professional service or product you wish to donate to the capital campaign, please let us know. Services such as painting, construction, building materials, artwork, etc. will all be considered.
