Christmas will come early this year at the HSHA annual Christmas in July Adopt-A-Thon.

The event will be held on July 27th from 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. and will feature $10 cat adoptions, $20 dog adoptions, cookout, bake sale, affordable pet products, and more.

For more information, click here.


The shelter residents are currently in need of some very specific donations. HSHA's canine residents are tough chewers. So, we are requesting donations of Nylabones and Benebones because these are some of the best long lasting treats. They are also a favorite toy among the residents. And, since we are in the midst of kitten season, please consider making a donation of kitten milk or canned kitten food. During this time of the year we experience a huge influxe of kittens and we are trying to bulk up on our basic kitten supplies to keep these tiny youngsters happy and healthy until they are placed into their FURever homes! 

Want an easy way to make a donation? Use our Amazon Wishlist. Your donations will be shipped straight to the shelter.

Thanks for your continued support in helping HSHA fulfil our mission of building a better community for pets and people.

Pet of the Week


Ding! The baker is in and Cupcake is ready for adoption. Her name describes her perfectly as she is sweet and has a beautiful cinnamon colored coat. Cupcake is energetic and sometimes does lose sight of her manners, it’s hard to bring her down from her sugar rush, so we do ask that kids be at least 12 years old in her new home. Obedience classes would benefit her greatly to help polish up her manners! A dog friend to romp around with would be sweet! She enjoyed playing with her dog friend here. As for cats, they seem a little too tasty, so please no felines! So, if you are looking for a sweet treat Cupcake might be the one for you. Check me out on PetFinder!
