Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
The BHS took over the City Pound July 1, 2009. We have a very high adoption rate, almost 100% for dogs (a couple were very ill and passed over the Rainbow Bridge) and approximately 96% for cats (Rainbox Bridge also).
We focus on promoting spaying and neutering in the community by offering $50 vouchers to assist with the costs. Another focus is pet owner responsibility - we promote this by going out in to the coummity and speaking to service groups and educating school aged children in the class rooms.
Our holding facility hours are: Tuesday-Friday 3pm-7pm and Saturday 8am-noon.
All of our animals that are old enough will be spayed or neutered before adoption, but if they are under age, we will issue a voucher of $50 towards the cost of the procedure provided the vet you chose will honor the voucher.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
