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 Ariel!
Ariel is an 8-year-old Weimaraner mix who came to our Shelter as a stray. Ariel is a dog in need of an extra special and patient home (or foster home) that will be willing to work with her. It has always been the unfortunate truth that she hasn't had much training in her life, and most likely lived as an outdoor dog. Being indoors at all was a bit of an adjustment for her and caused her some anxieties but has made good progress recently. House training is a work in progress for her, the Shelter isn't ideal for it whether they be adult or pup, but she is catching on and doing much better with accidents during the day. Ariel also has a sensitivity to loud or sharp noises and she will need to be in a home without any small dogs. All that being put on the table, she is a very loving girl and wants to do good. She would excel in a home where she can receive constant encouragement and guidance with the right mentor.
Hi, my name is Boris!
Boris is a 5-year-old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog/Lab mix who came to our Shelter as a stray. There has been a great amount of speculation on his breed, so we do encourage people not to base him on that. In terms of appearance, he is tricolor with short hair, a large and thicker body structure, and weighs in at about 60lbs. Boris is a macho man, and tries to uphold that. He does tend to get nervous when put in uncomfortable situations, such as when meeting new people. He tends to bark some and low growl, but is quickly swayed when a staff member is present for reassurance. A simple sit and treat is all it takes for him. We've found he just needs some work with self-confidence, and at heart, he's a big softie. You can really see his true colors in our photos! He's been nothing but mature and respectful towards our other dogs and loves going on walks. He's a fine young man, and with the help of some basic obedience he'd make a wonderful companion.
