Pet of the Week
Hello there! My name is Vivian and I’m a 2-year-old female white and brown terrier mix. I am a very sweet and energetic girl who loves people, but would do best in a home with no other animals, and kids over the age of 6 due to my size and energy level. I’m very smart and friendly, I just don’t like other dogs and cats are very scary.
My adoption fee is just $175 this week!
Volunteerism is an integral part of the HSCI and enables us to make a difference in the lives of thousands of homeless pets. We could not exist without the time, effort, and enthusiasm that each volunteer commits to giving. If you are interested in volunteering, see the list of volunteer opportunities.
Sponsor a pet
When you’re unable to adopt but still want to help, you can sponsor a pet to help us provide food, care, and housing while it waits for its loving forever home.
Take a look at the pet sponsorship page for more information.

Make A Donation
There are many ways you can help provide support for the pets at the HSCI.
HSCI is a not-for-profit organization relying solely on contributions. Ultimately, the best way to help the HSCI is to make a monetary donation. Our existence is only possible through the support of our community.
To be able to pay employees, provide animal care and spay and neuter services, and pay utilities and vet bills, we need over $500,000 yearly.
Please show your support for our work by keeping us in the community. We need a place for pets to go.
