Adoption option

Butte Humane and PetSmart launch work together

The Butte Humane Society, in an effort to increase animal adoptions, is entering into a partnership with the newly arrived PetSmart store in southeast Chico. Visitors can see up to eight adoptable cats in a permanent housing area inside the store during its regular hours, which are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Those looking to bring a dog into the family can visit the store on the first and third Saturday of each month, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., for mobile adoption dog events. The store is located at 2019 Forest Ave.

“I love having the adoptions here,” said store Manager Theresa Dahlberg. “I’m so proud of it, and I think it’s been very successful. It’s wonderful that we have an opportunity to help save lives and find animals forever homes.”
