A humane effort

BHS program to increase donations and adoptions deemed a success

Scott Schulman (pictured), co-owner of Brooklyn Bridge Bagel Works and member of the Butte Humane Society board of directors, announced last week that the nonprofit’s efforts to raise $40,000 and adopt out 40 dogs and cats in 40 days was wildly successful.

“We are pleased to report that you raised $48,621.90 and adopted out 53 dogs and 84 cats over the course of the campaign!” Schulman announced in an email. “Wow! That money will be spent ensuring every animal that comes through our doors will be happy, healthy and safe until they walk out of them with their new families.”

Katrina Davis-Woodcox, BHS director of development, said Schulman has long inspired people to participate in the annual seasonal effort to up donations and adoptions. For his part, Schulman added, “Thanks so much—you make me look good—and that’s not easy!”
