Adoption policy

Who we are We are strictly a no kill facility. In other words, we keep our animals at our shelter until a good home is found. For every animal that we place into a home, we rescue another from Animal Control. We make every effort to select the healthiest and most compatible friends for our clients. It is a difficult choice, but one that is necessary. It is our dream to be able to save and house all the animals before they are euthanized at the Animal Control Center. It may seem like an impossible mission, but it is our goal. Our Purpose Our primary purpose is to maintain an animal shelter for unwanted animals, with the objective of securing them loving homes. However, the HSHC also endeavors to: educate the public with regard to sterilization programs and their role in the prevention of pet overpopulation eliminate the use of animals in biomedical research and testing correct inhumane conditions for animals in pet stores, circuses, kennels and transportation eliminate cruelty in hunting and trapping activities and assist city and county officials in animal related issues Our Policy The HSHC\"s policy is to: provide humane care and treatment for all animals needing protection in the area served by the shelter seek to return lost animals to their homes and owners find suitable homes for unwanted animals and most importantly to educate the public on the overpopulation crisis in our local counties

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
