Equine Virus Spreads Throughout Southern California

An equine virus has begun to spread in southern California among horses. Known as EHV-1 or the Equine Herpes Virus, this infection in horses can cause respiratory disease, abortion in mares, neonatal foal death, and neurological disease.

The Power of Pack Walks

Recently at HSVC, our Animal Ambassadors have been taking our adoptable dogs on pack walks around town! These pack walks give our adoptable dogs an opportunity to get out and see the world outside our shelter. It also allows them to build bonds with other dogs in a safe, comfortable environment. Even our most nervous or anxious dogs benefit immensely from these pack walks because they can come out of their shell feeling the comradery of being with other dogs.

Pupdate - Aria's Litter is 8-weeks-old!

We cannot believe these cuties are 8-weeks-old already! Aria's puppies are growing up to be friendly, sweet, and like most puppies, destructive! They love to chew on anything they can get their teeth on, potty wherever they please, and do not understand personal space. While they are still NOT AVAILABLE for adoption, we hope those interested in adopting with us understand the responsibility of bringing a puppy home. They are a lot of work!
