Darci has been a volunteer with Butte Humane Society since 2016. In that time she has dedicated countless hours volunteering with our events. Without Darci’s help, the events we all love would not be what they are. She is a huge part of every aspect of planning these and we love her here.
When she isn’t helping plan our events…and sometimes when she is…she also fosters kittens for BHS until they are big enough and healthy enough to become adoptable.
Why did you get involved with volunteering at BHS?
Animals have always been a part of my life and volunteering at BHS seemed like a good fit. The staff at BHS is another reason. They truly appreciate the countless volunteers who give so much to make life better for the shelter animals.
What has been your most impactful moment volunteering here?
One of my first events was working at a booth in the mall. A volunteer brought a dog to the event from the shelter wearing an “Adopt Me” vest. I walked him around and talked to people about him. Shortly afterwards, he was adopted. I ran into him with his new family a couple of years later and was so touched by how much they loved him. BHS truly makes “love connections”.
When did you first get involved with BHS?
I started volunteering at BHS as a gift wrapper during the holidays in 2016. The next year, I gift wrapped and volunteered to help with Bidwell Bark and with that I found my niche with BHS helping with their special events. I have trained to walk dogs, but I am pretty sure I would just walk them all to my car and take them home, so I foster kittens instead.
Do you have any animals of your own?
I have 3 dogs and a cat (adopted from BHS) who thinks he is a dog.
