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.


An update on Jacinta from Megan Glass, Kennel Manager:

Jacinta is a chocolate lab, retriever mix. At the age of three years old she was brought into our shelter as a stray. She waited patiently for six months until her FURever family found her at HSHA. A recent phone call to check on Jacinta's progress and transition into her new home was riddled with happy tails. Jacinta's dad, said that she is now sitting before crossing the street and goes for two walks a day. She had a good check up at the vet and was a perfect lady while receiving blood work. Jacinta found true love with a doodle that lives across the street. There have been times where she has shown fearful behaviors, but Jacinta's new mom and dad are helping to build confidence. Her new dad said, "Jacinta is so PERFECT!"

There's no doubt Jacinta's difficult journey to the shelter and the six month wait led her to this perfect new family. It's definitely a great match!

I had a smile on my face listening to her dad tell me about all of the progress she has made. I hope reading this does the same for you.

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.
