Mission: The society, in association with the helen spaide albig adoption center, provides temporary, safe, no-kill shelter for homeless, adoptable dogs and cats ultimately placing them in loving homes or with caring rescues while increasing community awareness of the humane treatment of animals through education, spay-neuter programs, rabies clinics, and the respect for life.
Programs: Provide temporary care for adoptable dogs and cats ultimately placing them in homes or with rescues. Also, low-cost microchip, spay & neuter, and rabies vaccination clinics are held monthly as the society's outreach initiative to control the population of unwanted animals and preventing the spread of rabies.
I have been a volunteer for over 5 months, spending 2 to 2.5 hours a day, 5 to 7 days a week helping to socialize dogs at the BCHS. I find the staff to be very caring with the dogs and cats and to be very knowledgeable about individual animals. They make sure all of the dogs get multiple times out of doors during the day as well as keeping their kennels virtually spotless, feeding and grooming them and seeing that their medical needs are taken care of. The Humane encourages the general public to visit and adopt dogs and cats and does a thorough background check on all adopters including a home visit. They work very hard to insure a proper match for temperament and other factors so that the match will be successful. I would give the BCHS the highest marks for their work with the animals and with the general public.
