Camp Fire pets get a fresh start in Sonoma County!
Thanks to you, Chance got a chance!
Just a year after wildfires devastated Sonoma County, Butte County suffered wildfires of their own, resulting in the loss of homes for people and animals alike. Last month, Northwest SPCA (NSPCA) in Oroville was filled to the brim with stray pets like Chance (left), and Basil (the green-eyed beauty above) who, sadly, were never claimed or had to be surrendered after the Camp Fire. Faced with some hard decisions due to lack of space, they reached out to the Humane Society of Sonoma County and our friends at North Bay Animal Services (NBAS) in Petaluma in an effort to find safe passage for this group and allow them to continue to take in the animals who need them.

Darling Clementine!
How do we love thee, you smoochy, dusky-furred goddess? Let us count the ways... we love the way you dote on everyone you meet with adoring affinity. We love your mellow dispostion and the way you remind us to appreciate the simple things: companionship, leisurely hikes, spontaneous shoulder rubs. A nd girl, your "woo-woo-woo" greeting gets us right here ♥.

Watch Clemmie's video, then come meet this swoon-worthy sweetie at our Santa Rosa shelter! 
(Clementine's adoption fee has been sponsored by an HSSC volunteer who loves her very much!)
Go Dubya!
With his big-headed sweetness and snugglebug tendencies, Dubya won our hearts. The same thing happened to Christina and Jacob when they came in looking for a furry companion. They spent some time getting to know Dubs and learning about his manageable medical needs - including hypothyroidism. They talked it over and made the decision to bring him home. It makes our day when our perfectly imperfect pets find their perfect families!  Happy trails Dubya!

An adoption of mythic proportions!
Brooke has been searching for a kitten for months! Being winter time, kittens are about as common as unicorns. But Brook persisted and finally found her unicorn in Zeus! This sweet little 3-month-old just arrived from one of our out-of-county rescue partners and was ready to find a home. Brooke made the adoption official and they set off to start a love story for the ages!
Apollo reaches for the stars!
Teresa had been without a guinea pig for several years and decided it was the perfect time to adopt a new friend. She searched the internet and saw a little guy named Apollo available at our Healdsburg shelter. She drove up to meet him and was instantly starstruck by the charismatic cavvy. She put him on hold and went on a shopping spree to get everything he would need to be happy and very spoiled. She came back and made the adoption official. Cheers to this sweet duo!

Your support of our programs makes all the difference to animals
on their journey to finding love and forever homes.

Our Volunteers are Wrap Stars!
A heartfelt THANK YOU to all our amazing Wrap for Paws volunteers for organizing such a successful fundraiser this past holiday season! Our dedicated gift wrapping elves in Santa Rosa, Healdsburg and Sebastopol raised over $9,000 for HSSC's Angels Fund - directly supporting medical care for shelter pets on the path to adoption. This dedicated effort during such a busy time of year shows how truly remarkable our volunteers are!
