Weekly Wag from the Humane Society of Burnett County

Thursday, July 26, 2018 | Humane Society of Burnett County |


Willy arrived on HSBC’s doorstep as a stray and was never reclaimed by his owner. He appears to be a purebred adult black lab with a bit of a lazy eye, which makes him look adorably cross-eyed at times. He’s a chunky boy, probably 70 pounds, and very sweet and mild-mannered. Willy knows sit and down, but is still working on not jumping up for kisses. He loves people and is good with kids. Willy would make an excellent couch potato to lounge around with you, although he could use a walk or two. If you need a whole lot of love, Willy’s your guy!

Young Chance is waiting for his second chance. He came to the shelter as a surrender and while not having a great start to life, he is a very happy and forgiving pup. Chance is 11 months old, and a very happy reddish brown Boxer mix who’s around 55 pounds. With a little bit of training, this very handsome and energetic guy would be a perfect member of your family. He knows how to sit, and likes to lean on you for petting, but he likes to be on the move. Chance rides very well in a vehicle and behaves when being examined by the vet. This young guy deserves a happy and loving home and a forever family of his own!

Even with the great response to the kitten adoption special, HSBC still has about 20 kittens ready for homes. So if you thought you missed out, there is still an opportunity to take one or more home to stay at a discounted adoption price(one recent adopter took three!).

In addition to the black, gray, and tabbies previously featured there are also some orange and tortoise shell ones now. But you’ll agree they are all adorable, regardless of color.

Things are starting to happen to make HSBC’s dream of a new shelter become a reality. As soon as bids are opened, subcontractors chosen, and the state signs off on the plans, construction will begin. The building should be “move in ready” before Christmas! Wouldn’t that be a great gift for the animals?
