Support from caring individuals such as yourself ensures that the humane society is able to meet its mission.

The BRHS relies solely on personal donations and our fundraising events for funding; we are NOT affiliated with the HSUS or any other humane society, government, city, or national group and do not receive money from any national organization.

If you aren’t able to donate money, consider donating your time. BRHS is always looking for volunteers to help the animals and keep the shelter up and running. If you are looking for ways that you can help, call or e-mail the shelter to schedule volunteers hours! You can fill out a volunteer application when you arrive to volunteer or in advance by clicking here. 

There are so many ways that you can get involved: designing posters or handing them out, replacing broken light bulbs or fixing leaky faucets, helping at fundraising events, walking and bathing dogs, grooming cats, being a part of our fundraising committee and, of course, we’ll never turn down help with scooping litter boxes!




Our fostering needs have changed a bit since we were a completely foster based rescue. Most of our “adoptable animals” do well in our shelter environment so we no longer send them to foster homes. It’s much easier to facilitate adoptions when they stay in shelter. Our foster program has shifted to care for animals that need a bit more round the clock care than can be provided during staffed hours at the shelter. These animals include:bottle/slurry/gruel aged kittens and puppies, special medical needs animals, Senior animals that need a little more TLC, special behavioral needs animals that are not thriving in shelter.

“Goodbye” is the goal! Our fostering program’s main purpose is to get animals medically and behaviorally ready to reach that goal and find their forever homes!
