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 Tyler!
Tyler is a 5 year old Border Collie mix who came to our Shelter as a stray. True to his origins, he's a gentle and loving dog but also a worker who aims to please no matter what the mission is. Tyler is all about being busy but in a polite sort of way. Those who know the breed know they are about trust and being sensitive types, Tyler is true to his genes by being a little uncomfortable when people get in his personal space. He prefers to greet new folks on his terms but once the ice is broken, he is a loving and friendly guy. For this reason, we're suggesting a home with no children under 8. He's friendly with most dogs and interested in small dogs/cats with perhaps the intent to herd/chase but is easily distracted. If you’re looking for a dog who lives to work—be it agility, flyball, obedience or ???—Tyler is waiting to show you his skills.
Hi, my name is Reese!
Reese is a 5 year old domestic long haired feline, who came to our Shelter as a stray. Reese currently serves as our longest cat resident, being with us since November 2016. Though we usually recommend keeping your cat indoors, Reese is a special case who would benefit immensely from being an indoor/outdoor cat. He's been known as our own “Grumpy Cat” here, often seen with a 'Do Not Disturb' sign on his kennel due to being irritable. After a long battle of the Winter Blues, Reese has found new light while getting outside time in our outdoor cat condo. Now that it's warming up, he gets to indulge in lengthy sun baths, naps, and watching the day go by. He does well indoors as well but just doesn't enjoy not being able to enjoy the great outdoors. He would like more independence and novelty in daily life. He's always been polite when roaming in the office but beware of leaving out any temptation--keep any kitty or dog treats hidden, as he will gladly help himself. He currently weighs in at 15lbs, but carries it well due to his large frame and long hair. He is on a special weight management food and treat restriction to help him shed a few pounds, much to his dismay. Generally he's an easy to please and humble cat, but would prefer a home with no dogs.
