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 Tiff!
Tiff is a 1-year old American Staffordshire Terrier mix who came to our Shelter as a stray. Tiff is one robust gal, with lower to the ground and muscular physique partnered with her striking blue brindle appearance. But her personality can certainly stray from that. Tiff may talk the talk, but when face to face with new obstacles, she clams up and becomes more reserved. Sometimes hunkering down to the floor. Even something like stepping on the scale to be weighed is worrisome for her (but you can't blame anyone for that). She's the type who just needs some positive encouragement before showing her true colors. At only a year-old Tiff still has things to learn and training for some puppy habits such as mouthiness (gnawing on hands, leash, etc.). And with that age comes plenty of energy to spare! So, if you're looking for a workout companion to keep you motivated during these upcoming Holiday seasons, this here is the girl for you! Tiff is currently in foster care but is available to be seen by appointment, just give us a call to a schedule.
Hi, my name is Red!
Red is a 7-year-old medium size Lab/Hound mix who came to our shelter as a stray. With November being 'Adopt a Senior Pet' month we'd like to spotlight this salt and pepper man of the hour. When you think of a classic good ol' hound, Red is that dog. He is a very well mannered, easy on the leash, with the simple request of a place to call home and a family to love. He loves attention and spending one on one time with our volunteers both on walks and during quiet/social time. A real easy keeper who'd be a great fit for a quieter home to match him. The Lab breed is prominent in him in terms of temperament, but the Hound does come out when cats are present! For that reason, a no cat household is strongly advised. But all and all, he's a gentleman of a dog with his calm demeanor. Stop in and see if he's the ones for you today!
