BCHS Long Term Resident Ziggy Finds Her Furever Home

Ziggy, a gorgeous Mastiff mix from the Bradford County Humane Society, had been at the shelter for 3 years waiting to find her perfect home. Although she has been happy at BCHS, a staff favorite, she had longed to go home to her permanent owners and have a place to call her own. Because she didn't get along with many other dogs, and did not like cats, she was harder to place into an adoptive home than some of the other animals at the shelter.

On Saturday, January 17th, Sylvia and Mitchell Wright came to the Bradford County Humane Society to take a look around. They had recently lost a pet named Sorey. They instantly fell in love with Ziggy and it was a match made in Heaven.

"Because BCHS does not euthanize for space, we take care of each animal here until they find the perfect home for them. Ziggy has been a staff favorite for a long time, and we are all so happy that she has found her perfect family!", states Jennifer L. Spencer, BCHS Executive Director.

If you are looking for that perfect 4-legged companion, albeit dog or cat, stop into the Bradford County Humane Society.

Wyalusing Student Conducts Senior Project at BCHS

Many local high school seniors need to perform a senior project in order to graduate. The Bradford County Humane Society receives many students that come to the shelter to walk dogs, socialize cats, even help to clean the shelter.

Lydia Wildrick, a Wylusing High School Senior, decided to do something more involved. She created videos of particular dogs and cats that have been at the shelter for a longer period of time. She posted some of the videos on youtube to give BCHS and those shelter animals more exposure.

Lydia and her entire family have been long term supporters and volunteers of BCHS. "Lydia worked really hard on her senior project and we are so appreciate of her fantastic work! We are thankful to all volunteers and supporters that choose to help our shelter animals in many ways," states Jennifer L. Spencer, Bradford County Humane Society Executive Director.

If you would like to volunteer, or hold a fundraiser for BCHS, contact Jennifer at 570-888-2114

Ziggy needs a home with no other pets and no livestock. She is a great watchdog. Ziggy will bond with her new family and be extremely loyal and protective. She would be perfect guardian for a single woman and would love to find a person who likes to run or take long walks. Ziggy has been at the shelter a long time and deserves to find a nice home.
