Consider sponsoring a pet!

If you can't adopt or foster, but still want to help us save lives, consider sponsoring an adoption fee! It's a great way to get an animal in a forever home! We are grateful for your support!



Things to consider when adopting:

  • Make a list of what you'd like in a pet. For instance, would you like to take an animal on walks or a pet that can sit in your lap and cuddle?

  • Pet adoption is a big responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Commit yourself to providing a good home for the animal.

  • Visit the shelter.  Take your list with you and speak with an HSCT staff member about your wants in an animal.

  • Meet different pets.  Pet adoption takes time and you want to select the right animal for you and your family.

  • You can interact with cats and dogs at the shelter so you can get to know them better.

  • Prepare your home for a pet.  Pets need food, water, toys, bedding, collars and leashes.  Consider having items on-hand ahead of time.

  • Bring a photo ID with you at time of adoption.

  • Give your pet time to adapt to its new family and be patient.
