Honor & Memorial Giving

Looking for a perfect gift? Why not dedicate a donation to homeless animals in that person’s (or pet’s) name?

BCHS is a no-kill animal shelter and an IRS approved 501(c)3 charitable organization so all donations are tax deductible in accordance with IRS guidelines.

Make a Gift in Memory or Honor

Giving a gift to honor or memorialize someone you love(d), celebrate a loved one’s birthday or graduation, or commemorate a beloved pet is another way to give to BCHS. Honorees (or families of honorees) will receive a note from BCHS noting the gift but not including the amount, so please include contact information for the honoree.

The name can be inscribed on a plaque mounted on our Office & Adoption Center’s Memory Wall. Your donation will create a lasting tribute to your loved one and help extend the lives of animals in BCHS’s care. There are five donation categories of plaques:

  • Animal Friends ($25 - $100)
  • Animal Lovers ($101 - $499)
  • Animal Sponsors ($500 - $2499)
  • Animal Angels ($2500 - $4999)
  • Animal Heroes ($5000 and up)
Plaques displayed Office and Adoption Center's Memory Wall

Buy a Brick to Help Feed & Medicate Pets in our new Cat Shelter!

Engraved brick pavers come in two sizes, and they will be placed in BCHS’s Memorial Brick Garden (completed March 2020!), a special landscaped plaza area near the public entrance of the Shelter Office, Adoption Center, and Cat/Dog Shelters. By purchasing a brick, you have the opPURRtunity to help us save the lives of more homeless cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies and find them adoptive homes.

Bricks ordered display at Shelter Open House 2018

BCHS is a no-kill animal shelter and an IRS approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization so all donations are tax deductible in accordance with IRS guidelines.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
