Here's a couple great ways to support HSBC without it costing you anything!!!!!!
If you order from Amazon.com you can help support the shelter animals by going to AmazonSmile.com & selecting 'Humane Society of Burnett County, Inc' as your chosen charitable organization. When you do that, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your total purchase to the shelter. Please spread the word to your friends family that order from Amazon.com also.
'WALK FOR A DOG'
If you walk or ride a bike with your dog there is an app for your smart phone that keeps track of the walks & donates to the shelter of your choice according to how many people walk & how far they walk. You can even use the app if you don't have a dog to walk with & they'll still donate. You can learn more about it & get the app at www.WoofTrax.com.
Thank you for your support!
Here are some things we could use:
Hi, my name is Adele!
Adele is an outgoing 3 year old black and white American Bulldog mix, weighing in around 80lbs. Adele here stays true to her bulldog genes, she's not a barker but will certainly wail and scream - or as we call it 'singing' - for visitors’ attention. She lays on affection like buttercream frosting and greets people in the shelter with her signature smile, curling up her upper lip with a happy jog of her front feet. She loves to hug, receive pets and tummy rubs, and enjoys living the life of a Queen with her very own (generously donated) Serta dog bed. We are experimenting with diet changes for her as she is a bit overweight. Luckily, she does enjoy her walks and is easy on the leash but has proven to be quite strong when she sees fit. She is no cats, selective with other dogs but wouldn't at all mind be the center of attention in her new home. We are also suggesting a home with children over age 10.
Hi, my name is Cocoa!
Cocoa is 13 years young petite domestic long hair who was unfortunately returned due to her adopter's passing. She is a confident cat and sweet as sweet can be, keeping in mind in human years this girl is but a young 68 year old! Her small stature is certainly something to note, she weighs 5.5lbs with short rounded ears and a fluffy coat with a white patch on her chest and some on her paws with lovely olive green eyes. Though she's fairly quiet, we have heard her soft kitten-like meow a couple times. You can tell she ruled as the Queen Bee and was well loved and cared for. She absolutely adores attention and a lap to curl up on and doesn't mind sharing. In fact, she lived with two other cats in her prior home - a 10 year old and vibrant 5 year old, who have also been adopted. Cocoa would do best in a quieter home with no children. Though not officially dog tested at the shelter, we are thinking she had some exposure in her past and would do well given the right personality.
