November 2018 Pawgress Report

The 2018 Annual Matching Campaign is here…and only 24 days remain to make your dollars count twice.
Once a year, your donations are matched dollar for dollar doubling the chances for the animals in our care. That time is now!  Thanks to a generous group of donors and HSHC Board Members, donations made to our Annual Matching Campaign during the month of November will be matched dollar for dollar up to $35,000.
The opportunity to raise $70,000 this November is one we cannot afford to miss…
especially when the number of senior pets abandoned by their owner, cost of care, as well as those arriving in need of emergency and life-saving care is greater than ever before.
Your tax deductible donation of any amount makes a difference–and in November–the impact is doubled. 
2X the food
2x the medications
2x the supplies
2x the chances
On behalf of our team and the animals we’re blessed to serve, we sincerely thank you for your continued support.
Sincerely,
Rebecca Stevens
President and CEO

Foster Homes Urgently Needed

May & June may bring showers and flowers, but it also brings an increase in animals–especially kittens.  We depend on our Foster Home Network to not only alleviate our challenges with limited space, but foster homes are the only peaceful place for our injured or ill animals to heal. We also rely on our fosters to give dogs and cats a break from the shelter when depression sets in.

Some animals fair better than others in the shelter environment.  The daily bombardment of stressors–noise, strangers and the lack of space, light and exercise areas–begins to break them down no matter how much we love and care for them.  When that happens–finding a foster who will open their heart and home may mean the difference between life and death. In fact, we would not have achieved our no-kill goal without foster homes.  Foster homes save lives.  Countless animals would not have received the opportunity to complete someones family had it not been for the support of our foster network.  But with the growing number of senior animals in our care–who often need more medical attention and succumb quickly to stress–we are in desperate need of more foster homes.

Building a Better Future
2017 was more than just another great year of animal adoptions and successful fundraising events.  In 2017,  our organization’s long-time vision of building a state-of-the-art facility that embraces our life-saving philosophy, supports our community outreach programs, and offers the animals a better quality of life as they wait for homes went from being a dream, to a reality.
I believe the story of how this came together is so clearly a product of our continued faith, hope and divine planning that I’d like to share it with you.

Going Home
Megan Gonterman – Director of Operations
We love the holidays. It brings out the best in us.   With that, we’re filled with hope that the twelve animals we’re featuring in our Home for the Holidays campaign will finally find their homes this month.  
Our “Featured 12” is comprised of the 6 dogs and 6 cats who have waited the longest for a home.  Thanks to  Paws & Play Dog Training Resort &  Barkefellers Northeast, each animal comes with an incredible gift package valued between $500-$1000!
Even if you can’t adopt one of these deserving animals, you have the power to help them find the only thing they’ve ever wanted…a loving home.
-Share this email!

–Pick one of the 12 and become his or her advocate by sharing their story with family, friends, co-workers and via social media.

If we work together, our holiday wish and theirs will happen. Each will wake up Christmas morning inside walls of a loving home…not a cage.
Happy Holidays,
Megan Gonterman
Director of Operations

Leader of the Pack
A Letter from the Executive Director
Once a year, your donations are matched dollar for dollar doubling the chances for the animals in our care. That time is now!  Thanks to a generous group of donors and HSHC board members, donations made to our Annual Matching Campaign will be matched up to $30,000 during the month of November. The opportunity to raise a total of $60,000 for the animals in our care is one we can’t afford to miss.
The number of animals in need of emergency and life-saving care is greater than ever before. The number of senior animals surrendered each day, who require more care and wait longer for homes, is on the rise. The need is great.

Love & Let Live

Every animal deserves a second chance at love — and life. We invite you to be part of the solution and give back to the animals who give us so much.
