  • Donations to Second Chance Fund Needed to Cover Cost of Treatments
    (CHICO, CA) -- Butte Humane Society (BHS) is on a mission to save the lives of two heartworm-positive dogs, Brie and Norton, but they need the community's support to do so. Though BHS is able to reduce costs by utilizing their own clinic and veterinarian, they must raise at least $1,000 to cover the cost of the dogs' treatments.

    Brie, a 2 year old white boxer who loves to wiggle, and Norton, a 1½ year old chocolate Labrador retriever who loves to run, both tested positive for heartworm during their initial health screening. Heartworm can be fatal if left untreated. Unfortunately, the medication for heartworm treatment is much more than BHS can afford to spend on a single animal in their adoption program, let alone two. The care required for this treatment will also demand many hours of veterinarian and staff time.

    The Dorothy N. Johnson Second Chance Fund was established to provide medical treatment to animals like Brie and Norton who would otherwise be considered ineligible for our adoption program. For this reason, BHS is reaching out to our community to ask for donations in the name of Brie and Norton to the Dorothy N. Johnson Second Chance Fund.

    To make a secure donation online to the Dorothy N. Johnson Second Chance Fund, go to http://ow.ly/it7C5. Or, mail a check to Butte Humane Society, ATT: Brie/Norton Second Chance Fund, 2580 Fair St, Chico CA 95928.

    You can also make a donation via cash, check, or credit card at any BHS facility (Dog Adoption Center at 2579 Fair St, Cat Adoption Center at 587 Country Dr, or Administrative Offices at 2580 Fair St.) Please let BHS staff know that your donation is for the Dorothy N. Johnson Second Chance Fund for Brie and Norton.

    For more information on Brie and Norton and to follow their progress, visit the BHS blog at buttehumane.org/blog.
