The Butler County Humane Society Caring for Animals on Their Forever-Home Journey

For over 100 years, the Butler County Humane Society (BCHS) has worked to provide forever homes for unloved, lost, and discarded animals. “We provide a haven to these animals on the journey to their forever home,” Michelle Edinger, Director of Development at BCHS, said. “We’re most proud that for the last 20 years, we have been a no-kill shelter.
