A Word from the Bean

Baby Butterbean

When I was a wee kitten,  just a few days old, my brother and I were surrendered to the Humane Society for Tacoma/Pierce County.

I was examined by the doctor,  a call was made,  and the Humane Society found us our foster home.

We were tiny and frail, and our foster moms gave us the very best care possible.  They bottle-fed us and filled our bellies with KMR.  They kept us warm and safe and tended to our medical needs -- which were many.   

Sadly, my little brother just wasn't strong enough to make it.  They tried so hard, but he was just too frail to save.

But under their care, I grew and thrived, and eventually, I left my foster home and was adopted by Mom and Dad.

I'm guessing that when I passed through the doors of the shelter, no one knew what life had in store for me.  I never would have guessed it myself.

Here I am, eleven years later.  I've helped care for oodles of foster kittens.  I've worked hard to raise squillions for the shelter.   There's even a room named after me at the Humane Society!   My photo is on the side of a shelter van! OH, and I've brightened a few days, too!

And, of course, I met all of you.


I'm the luckiest cat in the world, and because of the shelter, THIS is my life! I am so grateful. 

Without the Humane Society there to give me a chance, none of this could have possibly happened.  The shelter means the world to me and I hope you will choose to support to them. Can you do it for me? Can you do it for your Bean?  

Please consider making a donation today in support of our shelter and the awesome foster program. Any amount will do.  Every bit helps because when we pool all of our money together, we can do big things!

Thank you for listening.

All my love and devotion, 
Charlene Butterbean

We've got a $750 match going on until 7:00 PM Pacific Time, thanks to our kitty-loving anonymous donor,  so your dollars will be doubled until we meet it!  We've made a small dent in it today but still need to raise $575 to max it out.  Any bit you can give will help! 

Thank you so much, generous friends!
