Keeping Companions

The goal of the Keeping Companions Program is to keep companion pets with the people that love them and out of the shelters. 
There are different reasons why people feel they have to give up their companion pets. Most of these reasons involve issues that can be resolved with the help of an experienced professional. Hslc knows that your pet is part of your family and helps to keep you healthy and happy with the love that they offer. We are working towards a time when no companion animal is put down simply because there is no room. In order to accomplish this, we must work together as a community and keep our pets out of shelters.

If you do not find the information you need to
