Attention Supporters, HSHA has closed early this evening, November 15, due to the winter weather advisory. We plan to reopen tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. in accordance with our standard schedule. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we wait out the snow storm.


We wanted to thank everyone that helped us get our new fur baby Dooser! Dooser is now Dozer. The kids renamed him because he likes to bulldoze you over when playing and since he's a bulldog they said it fits! Dozer has come home and has been such a delight. We added him to our family to help our son with his therapy. He is already attached to him and where ever he goes Dozer is right there with him. He is starting to adjust well to his new surroundings. He loves to go in the car and is eager to go for a ride. He loves to go outside and run and play with the kids. Although that is only for a small amount of time before he needs to take a nap in his new comfy bed! He loves to give kisses and loves all the attention that he is getting. This is a new start for him and a great addition to our family. We are truly grateful to have the opportunity to have him join our family!

How Can I Help Homeless Animals in My Community Today?

Currently our greatest need is canned food for both dogs and cats! Our cats prefer pate but the pups aren't picky! In addition, we could use some Clorox Wipes to help maintain a safe, clean, and healthy environment for all the sheter's residents.

Check out HSHA's Amazon Wish List for more specific needs.

We have several dogs and cats that are looking for a foster home.  If you think you may be able to help, please visit our Fosters Needed page.
