Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity!

April 18, 2014 - Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity: We have accepted into our shelter a 1 year old, special needs cat, too frail to be a part of our adoption program and he requires placement in a permanent foster home. Romeo was found as a stray early this spring, but sometime in his short life he sustained an injury which left his lungs and intestines greatly affected. He experiences labored breathing and cannot really jump around or play. By selflessly opening up your heart and home to Romeo, you are giving him a chance to live out however many months he has in a loving, attentive home setting instead of a busy shelter environment. You can even foster our cat living in an apartment or condo (with your landlord's approval), as Romeo's abilities to jump and run are very limited, so a small space can actually be beneficial. To meet Romeo and learn all about how to foster him, call BCHS at 618 664 4068 or email BCHS at bchs4pets@sbcglobal.net or fill out a foster home application.
Bond County Humane Society will provide you with food, litter, vet care and medications. Anything you buy yourself is considered a tax-deductible donation. We ask that you treat Romeo as if he were your own and keep us updated on his status. If you ever have questions, never hesitate to contact BCHS. Hospice fostering isn't the kind of work every volunteer feels able to take on. It's tough enough to foster a litter of kittens, becoming attached, knowing they'll be gone soon. But hospice fosters know there will be no happy-ending adoption to mark the end of their time with an animal. Your consolation when you lose him is you gave him the best you could. Contact BCHS to foster our loving and special Romeo now! Thank you!

Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program for Dogs that Weigh 40 or More Pounds Bond County Humane Society is currently offering a special Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program for Dogs that Weigh 40 or More Pounds! The owner cost for the spay or neuter will be based on what the owner can afford to pay... and BCHS pays the difference. BCHS has partnered with Greenville Veterinary Clinic to perform the surgeries. This is available through a special grant and once the funds are used the program will end. Make sure you take advantage of this program as soon as possible. In addition to avoiding those unwanted litters of puppies, your canine companion will live a longer, healthier life and you will experience fewer headaches if you get him or her neutered or spayed. Spaying/neutering makes animals easier to train, less likely to fight other animals, less likely to mark territory, less likely to run away or roam, and avoid certain health risks and cancers. Call BCHS at 618-664-4068 now to learn about financial assistance for spaying or neutering your 40+ lb dog. In the event your dog is found to weigh less than 40 pounds you will be responsible paying the difference.

You can foster Ginger and help pay for her heartworm treatments!
March 2, 2014 - Ginger - a 3 year old Hound/Shepherd mix - was rescued by Bond County Humane Society from Bond County Animal Control. Her time had expired at Animal Control but she was friendly and non-aggressive so BCHS took her in and she has been through all the protocol to make sure she's healthy; with one exception: Ginger tested positive for heartworm disease. She is currently awaiting treatment and after her treatment she will need to stay calm and not over-exert herself. After Ginger completes the 30 days of rest and relaxation she will need to wait another 4 months before she can be retested. Ginger could be available for adoption after the rest and relaxation period if the right home comes along and her new family is willing to follow BCHS guidelines for post-treatment care and re-testing. If you are interested in fostering Ginger, please complete a foster application form or call 618-664-4068. If you or your business are interested in helping pay for Ginger's medical treatments, please contact BCHS for details or send a donation right away. Ginger is a great dog given this new chance!
