The 2018 Annual Matching Campaign is here...and only 24 days remain to make your dollars count twice.

Once a year, your donations are matched dollar for dollar doubling the chances for the animals in our care. That time is now!  Thanks to a generous group of donors and HSHC Board Members,  donations made to our  Annual Matching Campaign during the month of November  will be matched dollar for dollar   up to $35,000.
 
The opportunity to raise $70,000 this November is one we cannot afford to miss... 
especially when the number of senior pets abandoned by their owner, cost of care, as well as those arriving in need of emergency and life-saving care is greater than ever before. 

Your tax deductible donation of any amount makes a difference--and in November--the impact is doubled. 

2X the food
2x the medications
2x the supplies
2x the chances
 
On behalf of our team and the animals we're blessed to serve, we sincerely thank you for your continued support.
 

Sincerely,
Rebecca Stevens
President and CEO

Annabelle
"This is the story of  Annabelle  Louise Greenlee.
Annabelle  was a stray strapped to a bench with a note saying take care of her. The Greenlee's Adopted  Annabelle  June 1, 2018. When  Annabelle  walked into the truck, she was terrified. 

After a few months, she got really close to our family. We tested out middle names and she responded to Louise. She loves to play tug-of-war with everything. Ropes, shoes, my brother's favorite stuffed animal, and even her collar. (When it broke off) We have bought her 5 collars in 2 years.  

Now, she is attached as ever and she loves to bark at our neighborhood cat, Katniss. She loves to play and can't wait to move to Noblesville soon!"


 
We want to hear your happy adoption tails. 
Paws of the Month
Meet Valentine
 


Over a year. That's how long Valentine has been waiting for a home of her own.

Valentine's story doesn't start out happy. She was shuffled from home to home until she ended up in our care. Due to abuse in one of her previous homes, she was frightened of everyone and everything. Her best option was to go into a foster home.

Our amazing foster homes have brought this girl back to life. She was initially hesitant, but over months and months she has blossomed. She is still anxious around new people and takes time to warm up, but with time and a patient family she will learn to trust.

Valentine is 3-years-old lab mix looking for a forever home without children. She gets along well with other dogs - look at her and her foster siblings! She also enjoys wide open spaces and cuddles!


     
Meet Tripp
 

Tripp's perfect day involves feeling the warmth of the sun and the wind in his whiskers. If you have lots of windows or a screened in porch or sunroom, this cat would be in heaven! 

He loves the wild outdoors, but as an indoor cat, he's best enjoying from the safety of your home. He loves perches - basically any way he can survey his kingdom and what's happening outside. 

This nearly 4 year old cat is looking for the perfect home - he gets along with kiddos and loves cuddles and scratches behind his ear. Bring this wonderful cat home today!
