"The new behind the scenes tour was a unique experience that no one on our team had ever had the pleasure to attend. Getting a close look behind the workings of the dedicated staff at HSSV and the care that is taken to ensure proper health, hygiene and safety for all the animals in the facility further deepened our appreciation for this incredible resource in the community. HSSV is truly a model operation that needs to be replicated around the state and around the nation. Thank you all so much for what you do to care, protect and give new life to the many creatures that come through the facility. You can see it in the eyes of the animals that they are being given the best possible care and attention while they are moving to their new loving homes."
