SHOWER THE SHELTER DONATION DRIVE AT BUTTE HUMANE SOCIETY
Local Shelter Opens Its Doors for Community Donations and Foster Open House
(CHICO, CA) – Kitten season has arrived, and Butte Humane Society is gearing up to receive litters upon litters of kittens ready to be spayed, neutered, vaccinated and adopted out to loving homes! In order to gather the supplies needed to foster these young ones while they wait for placement in the adoptions program, Butte Humane Society is holding a donation drive and foster open house at their Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic on May 10, 2014 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The top 5 items from the foster wish needed are; fleece blankets, cat/kitten canned food, kitten dry food, cat/kitten litter pans and cat toys. Please bring as many of these items as you can spare to 587 Country Drive in Chico, then cool off inside with lemonade and cookies and learn about how you can become a foster volunteer! Foster homes for the hundreds of young animals brought to the shelter during this time of year is one of the most crucial services provided by volunteers, and BHS could greatly use your help.
Fostering may be for you if you can answer yes to one or more of the following questions. Do you love animals? Have extra space in your home and extra time in your schedule? Do you have prior pet care experience? Are you in-between pets or thinking of adopting in the future? A frequent traveler who can’t commit to long term pet ownership? Please consider becoming a home away from home for an adorable litter of kittens this summer!
