BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – Over 100 years in the making, Butte Humane Society finally has a home.

Butte Humane Society hosted its long-awaited groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday for its new state-of-the-art facility, culminating a multi-year capital campaign for the project, "The Journey Home."

They broke ground on a 10-acre plot of land donated by campaign chairs Ken Grossman and Katie Gonser. The building is expected to also be an animal shelter in case of disasters.

Since 2018, the Butte Humane Society has been raising the $8 million needed to build. While 75% of their fundraising goal has been achieved, the Camp Fire and COVID-19 pandemic added delays to fundraising efforts.

The building should be completed by mid-2021. It’s located at 13301 Garner Lane.

BHS officials said they're actively working to raise the remaining funds to reach the fundraising finish line. Currently, there is a $250,000 matching challenge for donors to double their gift. Click Here to learn more.

The welcome relief of showers will be with us this evening! They will continue to push through most places in the valley. Some places may not see some rain given their proximity to the mountains and the effects of a rain shadow
