Service men and women can visit the BCHS animal shelter in order to participate in the Vets for Pets promotion.

Potential adopters must meet BCHS adoption requirements. To view adoptable pets and BCHS adoption policies and procedures go to The adoption promotion applies to the first 50 animals adopted by qualified applicants, limit one per household.

Susan Salyards, BCHS Executive Director says, “I could not be more grateful to our community partners who are the inaugural sponsors of this new program. And I’m so pleased that our shelter was able to develop our Pets for Vets program, recognizing the sacrifice and commitment those in the military and their families make for us daily by rewarding them with ‘furever’ friends.”

Since 1950 the Beaver County Humane Society has been committed to helping animals in the Beaver County area.  Sixty-nine years later, more than 4,000 animals receive comfort and care each year.

Each book includes also 10 sheets of my “22 Cats” decorative notepaper with a collage of all the portraits in black and white so you can make your own notes or write special notes to friends.

The portraits in this book, collected as a series, won both a Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion in the 2011 Cat Writers’ Association Annual Communication Contest, as well as the 22 Cats Notepaper mentioned below.
