Bruizer
 
"Considering what he's been through at 9 years of age, Bruizer has continued to adapt very well! He's officially a momma's boy and I love it. We walk several times a day when the heat isn't so stifling. He travels like a pro and gets along with my daughters' Rotties. Overlooking an older dog can be a huge mistake. I'm so glad we found each other!"

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

My Oh My, Omar! 
 
Just look at this happy face! Omar is a real favorite of the dog walkers and staff of HSHC. He is nearly 3 years old, already neutered, housebroken AND crate trained! None of that pesky training for this boy! He's quite the intellectual as well - Harvard better watch out! He knows the commands sit, come, down, leave it, kennel & go potty! Just brilliant! Another one of Omar's traits?? His UH-dorable wiggle-butt! If he's happy and he knows it, his butt wiggles a mile a minute. He walks so well on his leash and goes in and out of his kennel (or crate) very nicely. 
 
This fellow is always upbeat and nothing gets him down! The only thing that would make him an even happier pup would be to find his forever family! You just HAVE to come to the shelter and meet our Omar. His happy story will also be yours.

 
You can wake up to this face every day. Please visit Omar today! 
 
Meet Solo
 
 
You may have heard of her. She's the star of the upcoming kitty version of the Star Wars "Solo" - the origin story of Hana Solo. She's skilled in speed racing and holds the title of "Champion Mouse Catcher" on the planet Naboo.  She's very particular about her spaceships, enjoying plush surfaces and soft blankets. Her planetary success comes from her natural born ability to find places to hide where no one will find her.
 
Don't let her age fool you - this 8-year-old has many more years left in the galaxy. She's looking for a trusty side-kick to travel with. Could that be you? 
 
Give this retired Galactic Hero 
her forever home!

Volunteers of the Month - Kindness Runs in the Family
Gina Cook & Jessica Turpin

Gina Cook: What I love most about volunteering at the shelter is the sense of connecting and caring for animals that are in need. Cleaning kennels, and giving dogs a clean area and fresh blanket to lay their heads on is one of my favorite tasks. I enjoy talking and interacting with as many animals as I can, as it helps them to understand that we care for them and that they are safe at the shelter. I also always look forward to spending time with the kitties, and taking them to the "Catio" for some fresh air and individual attention, while also giving them some quiet time away from the noise and cages. I truly feel blessed by my time spent with these animals who only want to love, and be loved.



 
Jessica Turpin: Volunteering at the humane society has truly changed my life. Between the friendly staff or just being around the fur babies, I'm not sure which is better. I have been blessed with so many oportunities to not only learn new things, but also meet so many new people.   
 
As with us all, the stresses of life take its toll everyday. To be able to come here and spend some time with a puppa or kitty really makes a difference in my day to day life. Let me also mention how welcoming and friendly everyone is, which keeps me coming back. I feel as though I have walked into a huge family that, although we all are so different, we ultimately share the same goal. To make a difference in these fur babies lives.
 

Their passion and commitment to our cause continues to inspire us. 
Thank you for all you do!

Megan is our Director of Operations responsible for managing what can often be best described as an animal MASH unit and pet adoption center. Megan's day may shift from making room to house and triage  20 animals from a hoarding case and dealing with animal cruelty victims, to overseeing our pet adoptions, animal intake and ensuring hundreds of animals receive quality care each day. She handles the stress and great responsibility placed upon her with poise and focus.  Megan is a woman who gets it done...no matter what it takes.  
 
We feel incredibly blessed to have her on our team.  Congratulations Megan!
