Cat of the Month:
Meet Mama Gretta, an adorable
5-year-old brown tortoiseshell gal. She’s a survivor of the North Complex fires of 2020, and is our
last fire survivor in need of a home!
Meet Mama Gretta!
Mama was rescued as a stray, so she’s hesitant to open up right away. She’ll like to observe her new family from afar at first, but once she builds trust with you, she’ll show you her sweet and silly side!
Mama Gretta will need a loving, patient, and understanding home that can allow her to adjust at her own pace and a family that can provide her with space while she warms up to her new environment.
Mama Gretta would do best in a household with no other pets so that she can be the star of the show, and would prefer a smaller, quiet home. Since she’s still shy, she’s currently in foster care to help her relax from the stressful shelter environment.

Due to injuries that she has healed from because of the fire, she’ll need to be an indoor-only cat for life. Her adoption fee is also sponsored, meaning there is no up-front cost for adopting her!

The Face of Rescue: Doctor Turner
By Emily Acevedo 
It takes a special person to choose to work in a field of medicine where your patients can’t verbally communicate with you, it takes an even more special person to take on that role in a non-profit, shelter animal environment. Butte Humane Society (BHS) is lucky to have Dr. Mariana Turner as that person.

While our veterinary clinic at BHS lacks the large budget and high-end equipment of larger veterinary facilities, the level of care and compassion for each patient that enters our doors is second to none. Since joining the BHS team in early 2018, Dr. Turner has worked tirelessly, putting her expertise in both veterinary medicine and shelter animal care into everything we do. 

On the afternoon of September 8th, 2020, we received word that a lightning fire sparked earlier in the week had grown rapidly and was heading directly toward Dr. Turner’s home in the mountains outside of Oroville. It was clear that this fire was going to continue to grow, leading Dr. Turner to evacuate herself and her family from her home while simultaneously leading her team to prep our facility to intake burned cats. The amount of experience Dr. Turner has in treating burned cats brings up some bittersweet emotions based around the aftermath of the Camp Fire that devastated several of our surrounding communities in 2018 and shifted our non-emergency veterinary clinic to a burn cat ward, caring for 17 burned cats weeks after the fire was out. For Dr. Turner, it wasn’t a question of if we would help burn cats this time around, but when...Read More
