The Current Shelter is No Longer Viable
When you enter the shelter, you are immediately aware the extraordinary love and devotion of the volunteers and staff for the pets in their care.
You are also aware of the absolutely declining condition of the facility — poor design, too small space, inadequate ventilation, and an overall inefficient building to heat, cool and care for so many animals.
As the facility has aged, expenses have increased due to costly repairs and equipment failures. Continuing with a patchwork of fixes is not the best use of our donors’ investments.
Despite the limitations of our current facility, BCHS has acquired a first-class reputation for our high-quality animal care and innovative programs…programs we’ve been asked to share with animal welfare advocates across the nation.
We can do so much more.
