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 Bella!
Belle is a lovely 5 year old brindle and white Hound mix who is a sensitive flower of a dog. She came to our shelter as a very frightened stray and while it’s hard to know what an animal has experienced prior to coming to us, Belle is definitely more comfortable being a wall flower rather than the belle of the ball. We're working to help her with things that tend to make her anxious by teaching her that people are the source of all good things. Time, lots of treats, gentle handling and skills like targeting a hand with yummy cheese in the palm are helping her become more comfortable and creating a more self-assured outlook on life. She's coming around very nicely but still needs the life skills and self-confidence that only a loving home can provide. Other small furries in the home are a no-go and with her shyness, a quiet household with love, patience and consistent expectations would be perfect to help her bloom. This is a lovely young lady who would make you the center of her world with time and love.
Hi, my name is Lucky!
Lucky is a large 5 year old front declawed, medium hair tabby who came to our Shelter as a stray. Lucky was found along with another cat named Lee, who is now adopted. According to the finder, he was more of the type to hang around the house. Not so much into the hunting scene, why with soft paws it's hard to see him having much luck. Upon arrival, he was rather skinny but is determined to leave that in the past. He made an excellent recovering from a neck wound, but did start to pack on the pounds while on bed rest. Weighing in at 13lbs with a large bone structure, he's definitive a 'more to love' feline. Nowadays, he takes it easy; mostly a couch potato, shy at first, who comes out of his shell slowly. But once he gets a taste of attention, he just can't get enough! Lucky has been nothing but respectful of the other cats and kittens, and has proven to be adaptable. We see him getting along just fine with the right feline.
