The HSWC ADOPTION CENTER IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, due to the high rate of COVID-19 Transmission in the area. The continued health of our staff is imperative since we have many animals to care for daily. Volunteering in the building is on hold for now. Donations can be left in the alcove and we will continue to facilitate adoptions using the Foster-to-Adopt method. Appointments will be necessary for everything. Leave a message on our VM or email
