Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We are a limited intake facility. Half our adoptable animals come from Tuolumne County Animal Control, and the remaining adoptable animals are owner released.
Our mission: Find Homes for abandoned, abused and unwanted cats & dogs, while promoting responsible pet ownership. To provide and maintain a clean and safe haven for adoptable unwanted dogs and cats and promote responsible pet ownership.
We are 100% supported through private donations and volunteers.
The HSTC does not euthanize an animal unless our team agrees its quality of life is critically compromised.
HSTC placed over 500 companion animals into homes 2007-2008 fiscal years.
We have a net loss of $205 on every dog and $80 on every cat adopted out.
We accept as many animals for adoption that our donations and volunteers can support.
More donations and volunteers=more happy adopted pets and fewer animals euthanized.
During County-wide emergencies our crew of staff & volunteers assist Animal Control with pet rescue and providing temporary shelter.
Assistance is available to low income cat owners from SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance Program), program held the last week of each month.
Altered cats are $55. Unaltered kittes are $30 plus the state required voucher for alteration which is $40. Total then is $70.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
