Our Mission + Your Support = Happy Tails

Your support for a new transport vehicle is urgently needed.

We need to raise at least $27,000 to fund our new transport vehicle to continue serving our community and provide the highest level of care to its animal residents.

Our diverse services have a common theme: the need for reliable transportation. The reliability of our current vehicle is declining rapidly, and we’ve reached a point when purchasing a new vehicle is more cost-effective than repairing the current one, again and again.

Apprehended dog captures our hearts

Riley’s Story

While on patrol, we encountered a four-year-old male mixed breed dog running in traffic that was in urgent need of a rescue. A quick examination by the HSOC Animal Control Team also revealed he required medical attention. But while the newly named “Riley” was game, our aging van stubbornly refused to start!

After much frustration and more than a few skeptical looks from Riley, the crew finally coaxed the vehicle to life. Back at the shelter, Riley’s health was soon restored.

And while sad to see such a smart and playful companion leave us, we’re happy to report he soon found his forever home. (Given our aging and unreliable van, we were also relieved Riley’s new family brought their own transportation!)
