Friends of the HSHC Drive

As the economy continues to lag, it has a devastating impact on the pets in our community. Our shelter continues to see a significant increase in animal surrenders. And our operating costs to care for and place these pets have gone up considerably. As an example, I would like to share with you a recent animal rescue story.

Halfway Home to You Expansion Project

The goal of the capital campaign is to raise $250,000 for the expansion of our existing facility so that we may rescue and place additional animals before they are euthanized at the Animal Control Facility. (Note: As of January 2012, we are in need of $50,000 to reach our goal.)

The new addition to our shelter will provide nine indoor/outdoor dog runs, a surgical suite and a state-of-the-art facility for cats.
