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.


Sweet Dulce was just a year old when she arrived to HSHA. Her owner had been evicted from their apartment and left without taking this precious girl along. Instead, the landlord of the property surrendered Dulce which ended up being in the best interest of this buff colored beauty. In just three short months this girl attracted a new owner willing to give her a home of her own. Recently, Dulce’s owner sent in an update about her transition from the shelter to her comfortable FURever home!

“I wanted to let you all know that this sweet little girl is doing great so far!  We have renamed her Zoe as it better represents her spunky personality. She loves her little furry mice toys, which she carries around in her mouth!  She is hilarious!  Zoe has fit into our home well. It’s like she's been here all along. The Staff at HSHA did a great job of helping her little personality develop. My husband Dave and I are very thankful we could give her a home. Thanks so much everyone's help. I will continue to send updates and pictures. Take good care!”

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.
