BCHS has a small, dedicated staff that oversees the daily operations of our animal shelter.  We rely on our volunteers, who donate many talents, to help us provide the best care for the animals entrusted to us, to assist with our programs, to spread awareness of our mission, and to raise funds to support our organization.

Volunteering is an amazing life experience I’ll never forget. Knowing the animal I helped may not have ever had a chance without me. I wish I could describe the feeling I get when I wave an animal I loved goodbye as its new adopters take it away. The friends I’ve made (furry or fellow human) have been unforgettable, the memories I’ve shared with them I hope I remember my whole life.
