    Posted by · March 20, 2023 3:01 PM · 1 reaction


    Six months post adoption and Cedric is thriving in his forever home with Nancy! This handsome guy was brought to the shelter by our Humane Officers in mid-April of 2022 as part of a hoarding case. After being seen by our Vet, Cedric was diagnosed with Calicivirus, a common upper respiratory virus that often affects cats and kittens in shelters. While not fatal, the diagnosis made it difficult for Cedric to find his forever home. Nancy was able to see past Cedric's condition and officially made him a part of her family after 114 days at the shelter!

    Edward first met Rocket at an HSVC adoption event eleven years ago. He fell in love with the handsome pup and quickly decided to make him a permanent member of the family. 

    "From that moment on I had a constant companion and best friend and he’s traveled the country and had many adventures," said Edward of the sweet dog. 

    Rocket recently crossed the rainbow bridge after a long battle with health issues, but his memory lives on. " I shall forever be grateful to have had him. I have donated to your agency with his memory in my mind. He was a special animal to many people, never 'just a dog'," said Edward. Rest in peace, Rocket!
