Tuesday - Friday: Noon to 5pm

Daily enrichment and learning opportunities are essential to the mental well being of the animals in our care as well as providing them with life skills that will help them become welcome additions to their new adoptive families. We are very excited to be able to provide new enrichment and behavior modification opportunities for our animals thanks to the donations of our dedicated supporters!
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 Oakley!
Oakley is a happy-go-lucky 2 year old American Staffordshire Terrier mix dog, who is quite a speculated concoction of breeds. He's a medium sized dog, weighing in at around 40 pounds with resemblance and traits similar to a Doberman/Rottweiler and Australian Cattle Dog. Oakley is a quiet boy, and always has been in the Shelter. Not even making a bark much less a whimper. Instead he silently bows his head with his tail wagging as visitors pass by hoping to grab someone's attention. He definitely has that small dog attitude as he prances on walks and in the play yard, holding himself with confidence. Volunteers have said he is an easy walker, and is interested in playing with other dogs whether they be big or small. He does have some slight skittish-ness when it comes to handling, perhaps a little under socialized in his upbringing. We practice the 'touch and treat' method with Oakley, which is a typical practice among shy dogs and the like just to assure his comfort level. For this reason, we would ask for a home with no young children and no cats as a precaution
Hi, my name is Sylvia!
Sylvia is beautiful 1 1/2 year old black and white feline, who is always worthy of being in the spotlight as a featured pet. Sylvia and he six tuxedo kittens (now all off to their forever homes) originated as strays to our Shelter. She was the most loving and attentive Mother to her kittens throughout their stay, while still acting like a kitten herself. After being spayed, she was finally able to rest her mind and focus relaxing and taking a break from Motherhood while always keeping a watchful eye on her little ones. Sylvia is a naturally shy and curious feline, with a soft spoken meow to match. In a game of play she favors more easy going games such as with toy mice, the laser point, or 'catch me if you can'. Not so much for the fast movements of a stick toy. She is such a respectful cat while spending time in our office, not hopping on counter tops, tables, nothing. A very easy keeper, just give her a nice window seat and she'll be ecstatic! She'd do excellent in a home with dogs or cats of any age, given the right respectable personality. We would like to see her in quieter home with no young children.
