An important part of our mission is being there to help other shelters when they need it most. Whether it’s an organization in our own backyard, or a shelter states away, we are dedicated to helping shelters and their animals in need whenever we can, wherever they are.
Last week, we were asked to be a part of a very special transport to help a shelter in need. A shelter in Tulsa, Oklahoma needed assistance with finding homes for a large number of dogs and puppies. Several shelters in the Bay Area, including HSSV, raised their hands to help by taking in as many dogs and puppies as possible.
On Monday, a private plane provided by BISSELL Pet Foundation landed at the Hayward airport with more than 100 dogs and puppies.
We took in 16 of the dogs, which included a mama dog and her 6 puppies and 4 dogs with Heartworm who would need extra medical care. All the dogs and puppies will be spayed/neutered, have their vaccinations updated, and receive any medical care they need before being placed up for adoption to find their new homes.
We are so grateful for our community. Your support allows us to say “yes” to animals in need and give them amazing care before finding them the perfect homes. HUGE thank you to those who donate, adopt, volunteer, and foster. We could not do what we do without you!
