Get Involved.

We believe in People + Dogs + Cats. It's an important equation. It's who we are and what we do. But we can't do any of it without people like you! And when you get involved with us - as a volunteer, by participating at an event, hosting a food drive, and more - you become a member of our family.

So whether you've been our friend for years, or you're just getting to know us, check out the opportunities to engage with HSSW and show your support for People + Dogs + Cats.
