We wish to thank all the folks who generously donated money and food during the HSSC's 2016 Holiday Fund Drive. Even though it was during the busy Holiday season, you each took the time to ensure the cats and dogs in our community were helped. The food was immediately delivered and everyone that received items was very happy! Thanks again for your support!
Thank You SHENTEL!!
A hearty shout out to SHENTEL for allowing HSSC to be a recipient for the Big Give!! SHENTEL not only donated monetary gifts and supplies, but they allowed HSSC to bring kittens into the building that were in need of homes. We had a great time meeting folks and the SHENTEL employees had a great time interacting with the kittens. It was a joy to see that many of the kittens found their forever homes! Thank you SHENTEL for your support to HSSC!!!

URGENT!!! Help Needed for Cat Situation in Strasburg
Animal Control Officers recently removed 70 cats from a residence in Strasburg. HSSC worked with them and other groups to ensure they would all have a safe place to go so they would not be euthanized at the shelter in Edinburg.
HSSC has taken responsibility for 39 of them and is also working with String of Pearls with another 10 for a total of 49 cats and, as you know, we do not have an intake facility and are an all volunteer group who work out of our homes.
Currently, 25 of the cats are temporarily housed at the Animal Care Center in Strasburg and HSSC is working on immediate help for placement in foster or adoptive homes. Donations towards their care are needed since they will all need to be vetted, spayed or neutered, and need food and cat litter. We have a volunteer who is going around and asking the businesses where we had boxes for our holiday food drive to place them out again or a special drive.
We need help especially to move the cats that are at the Animal Care Center in Strasburg. They have generously opened their doors to house them and can only keep them temporarily. They are charging HSSC a reduced rate, but it will add up very quickly for that many cats ($7.00/cat per day or $175/day for boarding) and then we also have to vet them which even at a reduced rate is going to be a minimum of $200/cat. The other 24 are in foster homes and will need to be vetted as well.
The lives of these animals depend on your help!! Please donate in any way you can through money, food, litter or even as a volunteer!! Call us at 540-984-7101 or email at email@example.com
Anicira has moved!! They are now in a larger facility in Harrisonburg.
