I cannot say enough nice remarks about the staff at the Humane Society. They show extreme compassion to all of the animals and truly show these animals how much love they are truly worth. When I went to adopt an older cat they were so happy to see him being adopted and all came out to say good bye to him. They showed to me how much all the animals mean to them and how much they truly care.

The Beaver County Humane Society doesn’t rate one star today. We called and couldn’t reach a live person. We left a message online to set an appointment but didn’t hear back. We drove out to see if we could view the cats and filled out an application and then were told they didn’t have anyone to show the cats to us. The pens for filling out applications were sticky and the place appeared dirty. We will be looking elsewhere to adopt a cat.

I love the work Beaver County Humane Society does to keep their animals happy and healthy while they wait for their forever homes. A good amount of shelter life will always be spent in a cage, but at BCHS, they take time to ensure that the animals get one on one time with people, a chance to socialize with other animals, and time to work on learning new skills. They really go above and beyond for their animals. I volunteer with them to help in their mission and have brought home two babies from there now.

One of my college friends found two kittens, and she offered them to me. I then took them to Beaver County Humane Society and I can’t express how great of a help they were. I have just recently taken them back for their vaccine boosters and once again had a more than pleasant experience. I would recommend.

Beaver County Humane Society is such an amazing place to adopt from. They truly care for each and every animal that passes through their doors. They makes sure all animals are healthy and monitor behavior before adoption. Got my boy there a few years ago and will definitely be adopting from there again.

I grew up living very close to the Beaver County Humane Society. This was the place everyone went to adopt their forever friend. Everyone has the best things to say about them! We got our Toby from here 2 years ago! These are the kindest, most selfish group of people! They put so much devotion into each and every furbaby in their care! I see on social media how many animals they have each and everyday looking for homes and have decided to become a monthly donor!

I look for Non-Profits to partner with in the community and BCHS has been a great partner to me but most importantly an amazing partner with their community and other small businesses. They are active and engaged in marketing to their community and serving their community w food, spay/neuter, thrift store, adoptions, humane officers and the list goes on! They do both with strong professionalism, reliability, and adaptability. I really appreciate their role in making Beaver and surrounding areas a better place to live!!

You know those pillars in a community? The ones that have a landmark building and the building is a visual marker of stability, support, and pride? The ones that have diversified their services for further reach and impact. They run fast and have a deep impact shaping the community and advancing it. They have a culture of caring, productivity and positivity. That organization in Beaver is Beaver County Humane Society!

I have been fostering for the Beaver County Humane Society for 8 years. This is Odin he came to me with a severely ulcerated eye infection. The Beaver County Humane Society gave me much medicine that was needed every couple hours. We managed to get the infection under control but glaucoma set in and the eye needed to be removed. This is a picture of Odin right now one week after surgery. When sutures are removed Odin will go to live with his forever family. I am so grateful during this kitten season that they put so much effort into this one little kitten. He is a little angel and they are the best!

I'm proud to have this group helping animals in my community. I've adopted two pets from them, and donate to them. They're wonderful about finding housing and care for abandoned and injured animals, hold classes and clinics, and the county would suffer without them.

BCHS is more than just animals that were strays or surrendered for whatever reason and need rehomed, they provide a service that changes peoples lives as well as the animals. The staff at BCHS are an amazing bunch of people and truly care about the animals that come through their facility and they care about the people who adopt from their facility as well.

I can honestly say that my personal experience with BCHS and the staff has changed my life for the better and its not just because of the pet that I adopted. It is easy to see that they care so much for these animals and they went above and beyond during my adoption process to ensure my new best friend was getting the home she deserved.

The night my adoption process was finalized, every member of the staff had tears of joy and I remember thinking to myself that I knew Carmen was loved while she was there.

The passion and love the staff has for these animals inspired me to become a volunteer, something I’ve never considered before and now I couldn’t imagine my life without being able to contribute to their mission and helping make a difference for as many people and animals as they did for me and Carmen.

Thank you, Everyone, for your dedication, support and even friendships that you’ve given me over the past two years. :)

Beaver County Humane Society is the best place around! They're the place that rescued my baby and treated her so nicely before she was adopted. I adopted Princess Leia here in 2017 and have loved every day after. Leia was raised to be my emotional support animal while I went to school a 12 hour drive from home. Leia made so many other residents on campus happy when she joined me in my RA duties. Leia went on walks and greeted every resident she passed. People all over campus would see her and immediately know "that's Leia from Leisure Time with Leia!" My programming revolved around her because of her personality. I'm grateful of the Beaver County Humane Society for being so kind to her as a baby. I don't think she would have been such a kind soul if they'd treated her poorly. They took great care of her and made the base for a cat that changed so many lives. She probably even saved lives by cheering people up when they were sad and homesick. Thank you BCHS for my wonderful girl!

When we were looking for a dog we found him at BCHS. We were in the process of buying a home and renting at the time. The dog we found had been abused and was in a shrouded kennel at the old location of BCHS. We visited him as much as we could for him to get used to us. Eventually the shrouds were lessened but Kody, his new name, still shook with fear even after several visits. I learned there was another family interested in him but the staff chose my husband and I to be his new parents, I was so pleased. We closed on our home and that very weekend were able to bring Kody home. His favorite spot was the bathroom. We figured it was because it was as if he was still in a kennel and let him get familiar with the house in his own time. We did crate him at first but the evening when he didn't want to go in was the end of that. We weren't going to force him. He eventually was very relaxed around us but not with others. He would run behind the couch and stay there until long after the person(s) left. This went on for a long time. Then he began to be better around others and we were able to get him to stay from behind the couch and interact with us a d his new brother Luca. The BCHS was there for us and the staff was amazing.

We had just lost our family dog (who we rescued from less than desirable circumstances 13 years ago). To say we were heartbroken was an understatement. We knew we couldn’t replace him, but our kids had never NOT had a dog. We kept looking at shelters, but due to the Covid pandemic and people being home there were no dogs to adopt that would be a good match for our kids. We never heard from places that may have been a match. Purchasing from a breeder went against our ethics.
By chance, we saw ‘Oreo’ on the BCHS website one evening. We immediately put in our application and we were contacted the very next day after our references were checked! We took the kids to meet him as soon as they had an appointment and we not only fell in love with sweet ‘Oreo,’ but were impressed with the staff and facility. During our visit, we saw other dogs in the outdoor play areas and you could tell how well they were taken care of. The staff were very kind and you could tell they cared deeply for the animals. Due to Covid, we were able to complete his adoption outdoors. All staff wore masks and kept a safe distance, but still provided us with an amazing experience.
Our kids renamed ‘Oreo’ and he is now known as Oscar! We’ve had him just about 4 months and you’d have thought he’d been here forever! He fits our family perfectly! He’s rambunctious, yet loves to cuddle! He enjoys hikes, LOVES water and is loving fall! The BCHS matched us with our forever furbaby and we are ever so grateful! The communication, adoption process, transparency, cleanliness of the facility and ultimately their love for the animals make this an amazing organization and pillar of the community. Thank you BCHS!!
Love The Daniels’ (Oscar’s furever family!)

So just about a year ago we adopted our 3rd dog from the Humane Society. She was so sad & quite honestly so pathetic looking!! Her description said she was a 12 year old stray who was looking for a home to live out her remaining days. Well, like I said - it’s been a year & she is still going strong & has been just the most wonderful addition to our family!!! Thank you to the Humane Society for taking her in & giving her a chance, in spite of her age & appearance. We love her so much & she has given us so much joy!!

I had never had a cat before, only dogs. My friend and I stopped in after seeing a Mel Gibson movie. This is the "former building" near the mall. On the way out, I spotted a tiny orange tabby cat. I ended up adopting him, but wow what a difference from a dog, naturally. He slept next to my head on my pillow. He became my best buddy. He was neutered and had his shots, all part of the adoption fee. I named him Gibson after seeing that movie earlier. You see, at this time, my mom was battling melanoma. She was only 44. I also was going through a painful divorce. I shed many tears on my beautiful Gibson. Every step of finding and adopting Gibson, that day, at that heartbreaking time in my life, kept me going. He was my best friend. He was there for me when my mom died. Everything I needed to know, being a first time cat mom, I learned from the volunteers and employees at BCHS. That cat helped save me during my mom's cancer battle and death. I've adopted another cat since then and returned to get his mom. They are ridiculously spoiled and much loved. In fact, when I went back to get Joe's mom, the adoption was free because she was an adult cat. What??!! I ended up making a donation in her honor, my Frankie girl. They're still here being loved and loving me. Thank you for all you do. Thank you for your Beaver Falls amazing Thrift Store, where so many can donate to help the animals.

The Beaver County Humane Society is an essential part of our community. When I found a group of kittens living under my deck, I turned to them for help. They educated me on how to safely trap the kittens and their mama. The kittens were adopted by a foster, and the mama was neutered and released. I proudly support BCHS and thank them for all they do!

I wanted to help out by fostering a dog from the Humane Society. The dog that needed some help was a black chihuahua mix named Daisy. She was diabetic and her previous owners surrendered her at seven years old. I knew that being a senior and a senior with a chronic medical condition, it would be hard to find her a home.
I got all the help and medical care I needed to take care of Daisy, including her surgery to spay her, and all of her urine and bloodwork there at no cost to me. She needed frequent alterations to her insulin and the doctors and employees there were always so helpful. Because I had such a positive experience, I ended up adopting Daisy and she lived out the rest of her days until she passed this past January at 11 years old.
Thank you to the Beaver County Humane Society for placing her in my care and for all of the help provided to us!

I signed up to foster for BHVS several months ago and love working with them. They truly care about the animals in their care, and everyone is so friendly. The shelter has been closed due to coronavirus, so I have never seen the whole inside, but the outer building and welcome area is always clean and well-maintained. The staff was also always available to answer my many questions when I first started fostering bottle kittens, which was invaluable. I love fostering for them and will continue to do so for as long as I am able! They do valuable work in the community and save so many lives every year.

It was March of 2019 and I was so alone that wanted to die. My beloved dog had passed in my arms and I wanted to go with her - in fact I planned to. I got on Facebook to send some 'I love you' messages to those that I loved before I ended it all. And I came upon the Beaver County Humane Society's website and I saw a video of a dog.

He was huge but obviously still a puppy from his actions and the way he zoomed around the room playing with a stuffie. I could tell that the volunteers in the Video were being careful not to let him knock them down. And I knew at that moment that dog belonged to me.

This big dog had run the streets for 6 months or so. A volunteer had lured him into her truck with some food when he was obviously starving. I saw the pictures - he was a skeleton of a dog, but still very large. I often think of the courage it took to bring that wild dog into her truck.

Then he lived in the shelter for another 6 months without being adopted. A huge Pitbull who seemed wild, and was extremely strong, the type that most think of as an unadoptable dog. But the people at the Beaver County Humane Society recognized that this dog was full of love. His puppy exuberance was often seen as frightening because of his great size and strength. This is a dog that many places would have given up on. They would rationalize their decision by saying that resources would be better spent on a dog less spirited who would find a good home. But the Beaver County Humane Society knew that this dog did not deserve to die just because he was abandoned. They saw the good in this dog that most people would fear.

The staff and volunteers at the BCHS worked hard to teach him manners. They worked tirelessly on leash training - and this dog was strong enough to pull anyone down. They gave him nutritious food, and they showed him love which allowed him to not lose hope for that long 6 months until we met.

This dog saved my life. I am his and he is mine. He is a handful, but his love has no rival. And the people at the Beaver County Humane Society trusted me with this dog.

Together we've traveled to the Appalachian mountains. the great lakes, and the Rockies. We have hiked amazing trails, climbed mountains, and swam in beautiful waters. He is my constant companion and the best dog in the world!!! They all are. :)

This is Rafferty - a dog that beat the odds. A dog that LIVES because of the Beaver County Humane Society. And because he lives so do I. So really I owe the BCHS my life too. I am grateful to all the staff, volunteers, and everyone that supports the Beaver County Humane Society. They save lives.

BCHS has been wonderful to me! I've adopted quite a few furfaces from them and I am involved in their TNR program. They truly helped me out during this pandemic by holding a pet food bank. With having six furkids of my own, I took in a pregnant stray kitty. So, I really needed the help! I can't say enough good things about the BCHS and their staff!

The Beaver County Humane Society is comprised of hard working individuals who manage to be the primary source of support for the needy animals in this area.
This organization has no funding from the local authorities and manages to keep the shelter going with many fundraising activities and an army of volunteers.
Caring for the unwanted abused and sick animals is not for every one. Its a challenging situation for the strongest of will, however this wonderful organization has persevered to make many happy endings from dire circumstances.

Stevie came into BCHS in February 2015 weighing less than 30 lbs. The staff worked incredibly hard over the next month to put weight on him and get him ready for adoption. When we came to the shelter, the staff were so helpful in introducing us to the dogs, telling us about their personalities, and helping us to find the perfect dog for us. The shelter was so clean, orderly, and the staff were so kind!

Stevie has been with us for almost 5 years now. He is a Canine Good Citizen and Certified Therapy Dog. He enjoys volunteering at local schools and libraries as well as taking long naps on the couch!

In October of 2018, we lost Jack to liver cancer, two weeks later our Shasta died of broken heart syndrome. We didn’t think about getting another dog. Two weeks after these heartbreaks, Cash & Carry became available. Their owner had passed away and were brought in approximately two weeks prior. We saw a video of them after they were out with volunteers. We knew we had to meet them. They were big and beautiful! When we met them we knew they had to come home with us. Everyone at Beaver County Humane Society was so helpful and great to deal with.
Beaver County Humane Society is the cleanest, friendliest shelters we have ever seen. One can tell when walking in that the volunteers and staff enjoy their work. It shows in the animals and the atmosphere. I am including a picture of us and Cash & Carry on our first day as a family! Here it is a almost a year later and we are a big happy family.

The Beaver County Humane Society is devoted to the community it serves through education and caring of dogs, cats and other animals. I have been a volunteer since May, 2019 when I retired from full time work. I was impressed with the organization from the start. My first contact was with the volunteer coordinator and she was approachable, responsive and answered all my questions. Orientation training was provided as well as additional training opportunities, such as, dog handling and open question session. There are excellent veterinarian services on site. The staff and other volunteers are welcoming and willing to answer any questions. Great effort goes into keeping everyone aware of adoptions that have taken place and events coming up. The dogs and cats are loved and cared for, their spaces are clean, dogs are able to go for walks several times a day as well as spending time in a gated yard. Cats are cuddled and shown love by staff and volunteers. While walking dogs anything I see that may be a concern the staff addresses immediately. For instance, I noticed a dog favoring one leg, a vet Tech took a look right away. Dogs and cats want and need a forever home but until a good match is made, they are cared for and loved by staff and volunteers. There are many needs from cleaning, walking dogs, event help and more. People of all levels of ability are welcomed and needed. Education for youngsters is accomplished through the BCHS Reading to Shelter Pets program and summer camps to name a couple. My niece age 9 has participated in both and had a wonderful experience. All the volunteers and staff share the common goal of helping these beautiful animals feel safe and loved until they find their forever home.

During this time I fostered kittens and adopted six kittens who are now getting close to a year and a half old.The staff are helpful and friendly and they always always could us more volunteers and contributions. The medical staff are very dedicated and work tirelessly. Volunteers are not afraid of doing dishes, cleaning cages, doing laundry and / or loading and hauling anything donated.

I’m here to share my story on how this shelter saved my life. I worked at the shelter for a little over a year as a kennel attendant. As many people know this type of job isn't the best paying career out there. I loved my job more than anything, but my hard work just wasn’t paying the bills. So I decided to work else where that was willing to pay me more. So I left the shelter life behind to pursue other options. After I left the shelter I worked two high paying jobs. Not at the same time, I ended up quitting the first job because of how unhappy the work made me. Granted I made great money, but I was depressed and anxious all the time. So I quit that job and took on my second job making even better money. But with more money came more responsibility, more depression, more anger and more anxious... eventually I became suicidal.. again. My job was affecting my relationships, my own health, and more importantly my happiness. It was getting to the point that I didn’t want to live anymore. I had to get out of there before it was to late. I decided to look back and think of the last time I was truly, I mean truly happy. Which brought me back to the shelter. The staff welcomed me back with open loving arms. At last I was finally home, somewhere I felt at ease. I had my family again, I left whole. All my depression, anger, anxiety and all those terrible thoughts just washed away. Every time I help an animal find a home I get this warm, sweet feeling in my heart that can never be replaced. If it wasn’t for the beaver county humane society I honestly don’t think I’d be here, right now, writing this today. I thank god and my loved ones every day for letting me share my story.

Over the years, my family has adopted several animals (3 cats, 1 dog) from BCHS with great success. We were so impressed by their service that we've become monthly donors.

I was volunteering to walk dogs At the time & this is Topaz, he was adopted in 2006 from the Humane Society. He was in very bad shape when he was brought in, & as you see he turned into the cutest, sweetest & best little boy. He brought so much joy to our family & love into our hearts everyday. He crossed the rainbow bridge in April 2015 & is sadly missed every day! Even though he is gone, we always donate or take items to the Thrift store. Debbie is wonderful & appreciate what a great job she & every one there do for all the animals. They all work so hard & most do not realize all that is involved. Especially the time & money. Would recommend to anyone!!!

I have adopted 3 older cats and one dog from the humane society. It was always a wonderful experience. My cats were 14 and 15 when I got them. They were very affectionate and I felt the shelter really took the time to see if we were a good fit together. I love my animals with all my heart and the shelter staff was wonderful for the most part. I always recommend shelter animals when people say they are looking. They are usually the most incredible animals you can get.

I recently moved to Beaver County and, while I have 3 large dogs of my own, I wanted to be able to help make the lives of other animals better so I began to volunteer at the BCHS. I am so impressed with the staff there and how well they take care of the animals. Some of the animals spend way too much time there waiting to be adopted, but the staff and volunteers work very hard giving them all the love they can while they are there and I know some of them have come from situations where being at the shelter is a better life than what they had before. Please consider giving of your time to volunteer, donate or attend many of the awesome events they hold throughout the year which helps to support the many programs they provide.

The Beaver County Humane Society does an excellent job at caring for animals looking for their fur-ever home. They have a high caliber staff who display compassion for these animals in need. They receive no financial support from donations made to any regional or national animal welfare organization, and they are not directly funded through local, state or federal tax dollars. Fund-raising efforts have increased through the help of volunteers and staff; however, any private donation of supplies, food or cash made to this organization and/or volunteerism is always welcomed and appreciated! https://beavercountyhumanesociety.org/donate

The Beaver County Humane Society is an incredible organization. The people who work and volunteer there truly care about the animals. They have so many events and activities to help not only raise money for the shelter to care for the animals, but to find the animals homes. They try to get the fur babies out of the shelter whenever possible. I have never seen a more diverse group of people who are so passionate about the same thing. I volunteer here and everyone is so nice and willing to help each other. This place is great. If you are in the market for a pet, please consider adopting from the BCHS!

After losing my furry boy, I decided I would volunteer to help pets looking for homes. Thoroughly enjoyed walking, helping where I could. All of the staff is so caring and thoughtful caring for their charges. And one morning there he was, I knew right away Jasper was meant for me. We adopted each other and are now happy snuggling on the couch.
I truly recommend Beaver County Humane Society as a caring non-profit deserving of every donation whether monetary, volunteer hours, or recognition.

Our beloved dog Rocky suddenly passed away and my daughter was so distraught the next day I took her to the Beaver County Humane society upon arrival we were greeted with many helpful employees and volunteers who answered many questions for us. As soon as we walked into where the dogs where located my daughter instantly fell in love with one dog in particular. And the rest is history. Please adopt there are so many wonderful dogs that need homes and Beaver County Humane Society is the place to go. They are so caring and helpful.

I have been a volunteer at the Beaver County Humane Society for about a year. I have worked my entire life, and really never saw a group of dedicated people who work so hard on the behalf of the animals. You can tell the staff at Beaver County Humane Society truly do it for the love of the animals. I am so honored to be a volunteer to help this group.

I used to work with families in need and watched how the BCHS served the Community to help families who really needed to surrender their pets because of their situation. We donate several times a year either through their wish list or monetary donations. We also adopted our wonderful Cat Jinxie from the BCHS. Thank you for all the volunteers n staff and Doctors! These Animals need all of us!
