Get Involved

There are multiple ways to help save animals! Let’s find the right one for you!


Giving a shelter animal a forever home is an amazing way to help HSDC save more lives. As a no-kill shelter, intake is limited by space. When an animal in our shelter goes to its new home we are able to provide assistance to another animal in need. Plus, there is no better reward than the grateful cuddles from your new furry friend.

HSDC is a private, non-profit organization. We rely solely on private donations and what we fundraise ourselves. Our service to the animals depends on the generosity of the community we serve.


The gift of time is an amazing way to get involved directly with HSDC. You can enrich the lives of animals while helping them find their forever homes. Volunteering is an important aspect of rescue and is always needed.

Fostering for HSDC means joining a family of caring people who support our lifesaving mission and have a passion for animals. No experience is necessary. We will provide training as well as all the needed supplies including food, litter, crates, toys, bedding, and medicine, if necessary.
