We are a non-profit 501 (c) 3 no-kill shelter dedicated to the care, treatment, and protection of abandoned, unwanted, and abused animals before they are placed into their “furever” home. We have been serving Butler County for over 116 years.
BCHS is dependent upon private donations for daily operation. The bulk of the funding – about 75 percent – comes from the generosity of area pet lovers through bequests, monetary donations and support of our many fundraisers and events. The staff of 16 and active volunteer core of over 200 at the BCHS are deeply dedicated to caring for the animals who come through the shelter doors, and their compassion helps the shelter animals through their initial stages of fear, confusion, and loss.
