Adopt Or Find A Pet
Please help us find homes for these wonderful animals:
My name is Faye
A 2.5 yr old spayed female, white/ginger-orange cat, Faye has been living at the BCHS shelter since she was a kitten. She was part of a litter that was found and taken in by a family. Their mom was not very healthy so the kitties were sick with colds when they were very young. Faye is healthy now and has been for a long time, but her eyes water and she sneezes a little bit. She lives in a community room with other cats and her condition does not affect them. BCHS has tried feeding her hypo-allergenic food to determine if her condition is caused from allergies, but the food made no difference. Faye is playful and gets along with the other cats. When she wants to get your attention she will chirp like a bird! She deserves to be in a home, but people overlook Faye because of her watery eyes. Her adoption fee is by donation.
My name is Grunt
Grunt is a 1 year old Lab mix. She was surrendered to BCHS by a family who loved her but their lifestyle and house did not entirely suit Grunt, so they wanted to give her a chance find a more perfect loving home.
Grunt got her unusual name because when she was a puppy she made a grunting noise a lot. Grunt is used to only female humans and we are looking to adopt her to a woman (or women) who understands Grunt's apprehension and anxiety around men.
She likes to play with other pets (both cats and dogs). She plays fetch, likes walks and listens well. She is housetrained and should probably have a fenced yard with at least a 4 ft high fence so she won't jump out.
The adoption fee for Grunt is $100.

During the week, you can meet our CATS at the BCHS office at 1403 S. Fourth Street in Greenville on Monday, Thursday or Friday afternoons, or by appointment.
Please call to make an appointment to meet our DOGS, as some are housed off site and some are living in foster homes. These adoptions are most often conducted at our office.
You can also meet our animals during our Saturday trips to Petco, Petsmart and Buchheit.
BCHS transports a representation of our dogs and cats into the more metropolitan shopping areas each Saturday to give more pet-loving people a chance to see the wonderful adoptable animals in our care.

Sponsor a "Difficult to Place for Adoption" cat or dog!
Sometimes a kitten or puppy comes into the care of Bond County Humane Society and it is initially too sick or too scared to become available for adoption right away.
This kitten or puppy grows up in our cat shelter or our dog kennel over several months. It is now healthy and wishing someone would notice him/her and want him/her for their very own.
BUT now it is an adult - not as cute and not as playful and not as indiscriminately affectionate as a younger animal. Many people pass him/her by each week. No one wants to adopt him/her when there is a baby animal
to add to a family instead. This is not the cat or dog's fault. But it is sad and it is expensive for us. It means that Bond County Humane Society is still paying money to feed him/her, paying money to
give him/her a bed to sleep on and vaccination shots and parasite prevention medication and toys to keep him/her mentally healthy and alert. Now you can help! You can choose a dog or cat to sponsor regularly each month and help support a pet in need until the perfect
family finally comes along to adopt it. Visit our list at Petfinder to meet the animals who need your help right now.
Then call 618-664-4068 to find out more information about sponsoring a "difficult to place for adoption" pet still living in shelter care.
Sponsor-A-Pet via PetFinder
For another way to help a pet even if you can't adopt, click on an adoptable animal's PetFinder profile and register to donate an amount that will go directly to BCHS and directly to that pet! It costs an average of $180 to provide care for a pet while s/he waits for a home. Each contribution you can afford to make enables a pet to get cared for until a new loving family comes along. They all deserve this chance!
