Butte Humane aims high

The crowds that came out for Zootoo.com visit worth it

<br>Hundreds of Chicoans flocked to the Butte Humane Society shelter Sunday afternoon (April 5), some with signs and others with pets they’d adopted. The occasion was a visit by <a href="http://zootoo.com/">Zootoo.com</a> official Richard Thompson (pictured with an apparently tickled Mayor Ann Schwab). Word from BHS Executive Director Heather Schoeppach came Tuesday that the visit was well-received—the Fair Street facility made it to the final 10 shelters in the United States being considered for a million-dollar makeover. Just by making it to the top 10, BHS received $10,000. The next round of voting starts at noon on Monday (April 13) and goes until midnight April 19. Each individual can cast no more than 10 votes per day.
