About HSC

HSC has been around for over 45 years. On average we place over 100 animals into foster homes monthly, and as an end result, in 2023 have placed over 3500 companion animals into their new homes! HSC has also recently moved into our brand-new Animal Resource Center, and we are thrilled to have a brand-new state-of-the-art facility which allows us to be able to offer more comprehensive services to our community.
