Welcome to theButler County Humane Society
A NO-KILL Animal Shelter for Homeless, Adoptable Cats and Dogs since 1897!
A non-profit animal shelter, the Butler County Humane Society (BCHS), in association with the Helen Spade Albig Adoption Center, provides a temporary, safe, no-kill shelter for homeless, adoptable dogs and cats ultimately placing them in loving homes or with caring rescues while increasing community awareness of the humane treatment of animals through education, spay-neuter programs, rabies clinics, and the respect for life. The BCHS is not supported by county taxpayer dollars as the name leads many to believe. We rely solely on the support of generous community members who believe in our mission to continue rehabilitating and re-homing dogs and cats in Butler County.

Dog of the Month!
Yetti – This Six year old German shepherd mix was surrendered to our care after his owner fell too ill to care for him. Yetti quickly became a volunteer favorite – he LOVES playing fetch and hoarding all of the tennis balls! Unfortunately, Yetti does suffer from hip dysplasia, but he definitely doesn’t let it slow him down when it comes to play time! Yetti would request a home with no cats and laid back dogs that wouldn’t push him around. But more than anything Yetti wishes to live with a family, to be a companion, and to be loved.
Cat of the Month!
Mulan – With her regal disposition, the five year old female Siamese mix, Mulan, takes a little time to warm up. She found her way to us as a stray a few months ago and is excited and ready to meet a family that is looking for an affectionate, fun loving cat. When she arrived at the shelter, the stress of the kennel environment made her start pulling her hair out. We have eased her anxiety with calming medication, but we believe the best medicine would be a home to call her own. She has proved to us that if a family gave her a chance she would surely bring honor to us all!
