From Butte Humane Society (Chico, California 95928)
With summer approaching, we can’t help but look forward to all the great things summer has to offer. I know I can barely wait for a few lazy indulgences! Personally, I relish a little “hammock time.” There is nothing like reading a good book in the shade of a big oak tree in Bidwell Park or by the pool in a nice comfy chair.
I hope you enjoy every minute of the summer season! But before you get started, I need to ask for your help.
Here at Butte Humane Society, summer means a virtual flood of homeless animals. Because of uncontrolled and unplanned breeding in the winter and spring seasons, we find ourselves inundated with animals in need throughout the summer.
Our busiest time of year when it comes to the work to be done also tends to be our slowest time of the year for donations. With summer vacation plans it is easy to forget about the spike in homeless animals needing care here at BHS. But, they are our number one concern. Hungry mouths must be fed. Injuries must be repaired. New homes must be found!
So, before you dive into a great summer, please give your “Summer Slump” gift today and help our community’s animals have a great summer too. Your life-saving support is gratefully appreciated.
