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.

HSSW volunteers are amazing! From care of the animals to administrative support and lending a hand at ReTails. Our volunteers do it all!

Walk/Run for the Animals

It's one of our favorite days of the year! It's not just a fun time, it's a critical fundraiser. Join us May 4 for Walk/Run for the Animals.
