Improved Dog Play Yards at the HSVC!


The HSVC is happy to report that thanks to the overwhelming support of our community and volunteers we were able to provide our dogs with an improved play yard over the weekend. You may recall about a month ago we sent out a call to our supporters to help with funds to repair a few of our yards. We ended up raising more than we expected and were able to purchase the materials necessary to put up new siding on all of our big dog yards!

Pet of the Week - Huxley


This handsome cat is Huxley. Huxley came in as a stray on December 17, 2014. We estimate that Huxley is about 5 years old. He currently lives in our Cat Room with up to 20 other cats so he is accustomed to having lots of other fur friends! Huxley loves attention and is quite fond of being pet which can be very therapeutic! If you are interested in spending time with Huxley please ask a kennel attendant to help you as we have 5 other black cats in the room as well (he is the one with the white whiskers).

Get Well Soon Gretel!


Let's all wish Gretel a speedy recovery! This little girl was brought in as a stray with her brother Hansel at just 4-5 weeks old. Staff quickly noticed that little Gretel was uncomfortable and our vet determined she had a dislocated foot that needed to be set and casted. She is currently taking it easy per the Doctor's orders so she can save all her energy for her future forever family!
