    Bond County Humane Society has released a report on our adoptions for 2018, down from the past two record-breaking years, but we continue to appreciate and adjust to our purpose-built cat shelter adjacent to our dog facility which we moved into May 2018! BCHS found furever homes for 82 cats/kittens, and 58 dogs/puppies.
    BCHS volunteers donated more than 5,000 hours to help care for the animals in need..
    In 2018 BCHS took in a total of 191 cats and dogs. The breakdown of animals is: 94 kittens, 37 cats, 34 puppies and 26 dogs. Of those numbers, 43.5% of the kittens/cats and 75% of the puppies/dogs were rescued from kill facilities. The remaining kittens, cats, puppies and dogs are the result of owner surrenders, abandoned animals and strays.
   In the fifteen and a half years since BCHS was formed, more than 1,700 animals have been rescued and found permanent adoptive homes!
