All too often pets are found in dire situations. Whether they were abused, neglected, abandoned, or just the unfortunate companion of someone who was unable to care for their special needs, they all deserve better. To rescue an animal is to take it out of such situations, but the animal’s troubles don’t end there.
The transition to a happy, healthy life is not always easy for an animal that knows nothing other than its previous experiences. Often they are fearful and nervous. Many times they are in need of medical care.
With the help of a very generous community, the staff and volunteers at Butte Humane Society are able to provide that care and socialization that pet needs to adjust to a happy, normal life. Rather than simply passing off a pet, along with all of the scars of its previous life, to the first person who comes along, we are fortunate enough to able to take the time to learn about that pet, its temperament, dietary restrictions, medical conditions, and the funny little quirks that make that pet unique. We can then use that information to find the best match we can to ensure both the pet and its new family have a wonderful life together with no surprises, thus reducing the rate of return.
Thanks to such a caring community of supporters, we are able to turn negative situations into positive ones for both the pets and their adoptive families. We are proud to be able to do more than simply relocate a pet; we take the steps to help it find its forever home.
