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.

Whomp Whomp

Here is Annie ( formerly Whomp Whomp) snuggling with her favorite person in the world. She does not leave his side at night and they are best buddies. Annie and our bigger dog, Cooper, are wonderful playmates. She is overly interested in the cats but that seems to be settling down already. She has had no accidents in the house, and enjoys having her crate- she just walks right in and settles down with a toy or four to shred while I am away at work. 

Thanks to your crew for taking such good care of her, you would never guess she spent so long in a shelter by her manners, which are excellent. 

We love her dearly already.

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.
