Pet Adoption

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains un-awakened."  -Anatole France

We’re thrilled that you're looking for a new best friend!

We're here to help you find a cat, dog or small animal that will best match your lifestyle and desired qualities in a pet. After you adopt, we're still here to celebrate with you as you form a bond with your new pet, or help you with any challenges that might arise from the transition. We're honored to be your resource for pet companionship!


Who's the genius behind the gorgeous animal photos on our site? Mountain Dog Photography.

Kelly Schulze donates her time every week to photograph our newly available animals ... free of charge.

Hey HSCC adopters: you can purchase that wonderful headshot of your new friend that appeared on our website! Kelly Schulze of Mountain Dog Photography takes several photos of each animal, and can offer you the entire selection to choose from. Simply email Kelly with the animal's name, species, color and approximate adoption date (ex. Summer 2010). 20% of all proceeds from your purchase is donated to HSCC.
