It can be confusing! Many people even mistakenly think that the Humane Society of the United States runs all humane societies. […]

HSLC in Action: Hospice Animals

HSLC in Action: Hospice Animals Many of the animals that come under the care of the Humane Society of Loudoun County are good candidates for placement into new, loving homes. Sometimes though, an animal will have medical issues that make them unsuitable for adoption. When practical, we seek out foster homes that can provide the […]

Fostering from the foster’s perspective….

Yesterday Lily went over the rainbow bridge. She came to us as a grumpy old lady with health problems. After spending some miserable time in the kennel, she came home with me 3 years ago, 2.5 of them as a hospice kitty. She was not necessarily the standard loving cat – set in her ways, […]
