Hello there! My name is Kayla. I am a beautiful 1 year old brown and black tabby. I have been running around for most of my life and am ready to settle down with my fur-ever family. I'm very outgoing and cuddly. I would love to live outdoor/indoor so I can explore around. I would prefer to be the only cat in your home but I don't know how I am with dogs yet. Looking for a sweet, loving, and confident cat? Then I might be the gal for you! Please come and meet me at the Cat Adoptions Center today!

Hello there, my name is Lebowski! I am a young guy eager to please! I already know sit, shake-with both paws, and lay down. I don't want to brag, but I am also a master at catch and playing fetch.

I have a lot of energy and playfulness so a home that can exercise with me daily would be best. I can play independently with my toys, but I prefer being in the same area as my people otherwise I get sad. I could possibly live with another dog, but we have to meet first!

Meow! My name is Emmy. I am a very sweet 3 year medium sized old brown and orange tabby. I am not very outgoing yet but I do love to be pet and held at times. I would make a great family pet for someone who will give me a little time to settle into a new place and allow me to explore at my own pace.

Hi I'm Nala! I'm a seven year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix that came to the shelter as a surrender. I really love people and am an easy going dog that would be good for a first time dog owner.

I would be a great dog for a family and I am not sure if I can have doggie friends, but am willing to try! I do not do well with cats, but I am a mellow dog who would be good living in a house or an apartment. If you think you'd like to adopt me please call the Dog Adoptions Center at 530-343-7917 x 201

Must Have App For The Next Storm

Right Now there's a lull in the weather, but we're expecting another round of storms starting Tuesday through possibly Thursday. That means wet, slick roads in the valley, accidents and traffic delays. If you're in the foothills or mountains, ice and snow will no doubt impact your travels.  The best way to keep up with the most up to date road information and conditions is the Caltrans App called QuickMap.

 

 

With the QuickMap app you will have access to real time traffic information including traffic congestion and CHP incidents, road closures, chain control information, changeable message signs, and the most current traffic speeds on freeways and most state maintained roadways. You can also see where Caltrans drivers are operating plows and where Caltrans maintained rest areas are along your travel route.  Before, you had to visit two or three websites and call a couple different numbers to get all this information. Now you can get all this valuable time and (depending on conditions) potentially lifesaving information all in one convenient place. Your smartphone with the QuickMap app.

 

 

To get Quick Map on your smartphone or tablet, simply  use your phone to log on to the Apple App Store  or Google Play  download and install on your phone today before the next storm hits.  If you are using your desktop or laptop you can also access QuickMap here.

COLUSA CASINO RESORT – Benefit Concert Raises over $16,000 to Help Fire Relief Efforts

COLUSA, Calif – (Jan. 30, 2019) – Colusa Casino Resort presented a check to the American Red Cross California Wildfires Relief and the California Fire Foundation totaling over $16,000 to help victims of the historic wildfires that damaged much of Northern California in 2018.
Victor Fernandez, General Manager of Colusa Casino Resort along with its owners, the Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians described the fires as devastating and wanted to take action right away to help those in need. Colusa Casino Resort and Presenting Sponsor Recology, partnered in late 2018 to put together a benefit concert where 100% of ticket sales would be donated.
Amanda Ree, Executive Director of the American Red Cross proclaimed, “Colusa Casino is always a steadfast supporter of our local communities. This support for our wildfire fund came at a critical time between two large local disasters, the Carr Fire and the Camp Fire. And, it has done much to bring our mission to the communities impacted by these devastating fires - allowing us to provide safe beds and warm food as well as provide the direct financial assistance that can help families with immediate needs.”
“The concert at Colusa Casino offered a measure of comfort and renewal for those facing a difficult time,” said Brian Rice, Chair of the California Fire Foundation. “The money from this event will help rebuild homes and lives shattered by catastrophic wildfires.”

COLUSA CASINO RESORT CAMP FIRE FUND RAISER

Locally Headquartered Agricultural Equipment Company Partners with Colusa Casino to Donate to Victims of the Camp Fire 


Yuba City, CA - Valley Truck and Tractor Company (VTTCO) has joined with the Colusa Casino to donate $12,145.00 the Sierra Central Credit Union/TLK Foundation/ Camp Fire Relief Fund.  The fund has been established to provide aid to the victims of the Camp Fire and 100% of the donations received will go to the victims. 
VTTCO holds an annual Christmas Party for its employees and this year’s party was to be held at Colusa Casino Resort.  The party is held every year for its employees and their families as a thank you for their hard work, dedication and support throughout the year. 
VTTCO management was considering cancelling this year’s party and instead commit the funds to the Camp Fire victims.  Discussions were held with Colusa Casino Resort management regarding cancelling the event and it was then that Colusa Casino stepped up and offered to participate in the donation and still provide the opportunity for VTTCO to hold the party for its employees.
“Over the years, Colusa Casino Resort has been honored to have the good people of Valley Truck and Tractor as our guests. In these times of thanks and sharing, it's wonderful now to join Valley Truck and Tractor as partners in generosity and caring for our community with over $12,000 being directed towards where the folks in our area need it most.” Beau Gonzales, Assistant General Manager, Colusa Casino Resort.

The SCCU/TLKFoundation/Camp Fire Relief Fund is continuing to receive donations and can be found on the web at: http://tlkfoundation.org

Mix Pet of the Week

We're back with another edition of Mix Pet of the Week, showcasing a couple more furry friends from the Butte Humane Society who are looking for their foreve homes.  This week, you'll meet Marsh and Heidi!

 

Hello!  My Name is Marsh!

 

Marsh

Three Years Old

Nuetered Male

Shepherd Mix

 

Woof! My name is Marsh and I am a 3 year old male shepherd mix here at the Butte Humane Society. I am very smart and willing to learn, but being around all of the strange dogs here gives me anxiety. I need to have a stable home environment so that I can relax and come out of my shell because I am truly a happy, playful boy! I know how to sit, stay, and lay down, but I need someone in my life to help me focus because I can get distracted fairly easily. I love playing with toys and I may be okay with another dog, but we would have to meet first to make sure that we get along!

 

And I'm Heidi! Pleased to meet you!

 

Heidi

Fifteen Years Old

Spayed Female

Black and White Domestic Shorthair

 

Hi my name is Heidi, I am a super sweet black and white senior kitty. I came to the shelter this summer with my very best friend Fifi, and I am hoping to find a new forever home with her. We are both spayed females and Fifi is a senior as well. We are hoping to find a mellow, relaxing home with someone who will pamper us for the rest of our lives.

 

Both Marsh and Heidi would make wonderful additions to any family.  You can visit Marsh at the Butte Humane Society Dog Adoption Center located at 2579 Fair Street in Chico.  Heidi currently resides at the Butte Humane Society Cat Adoption Center located at 587 Country Dr. in Chico.  Both facilities are open 7 days a week from 12 noon to 6 pm each day.  Marsh and Heidi look forward to seeing you soon!
