About Our Shelter:HHS is a small non-profit organization supported by donations (receive no tax monies). We are the only group in the area that actually has a faciltiy to house animals.
We have been in the area since the 1960s. We are made up of volunteers and no one on the board is paid--it is all volunteer. We have a small staff that works 5 hours a day to clean and do basic care for the animals. Everything else is performed by volunteers (Anyone wanting to volunteer, please contact us. We would love to have you.)
Our goal is to help the unwanted and abandoned animals. Want to give the animals the best care possible. By hve everying spayed/neutered, our goal is to decrease the numbers of animals that are euthanized each year.
Come Meet our Pets:Come see the animals at our shelter at 3412 Oaklawn Blvd. Also we house cats/kittens at PetSmart on CarMia Way off Midlothian TurnPike in Chesterfield County (near Chesterfield Town Center) 24/7. We have someone at the center from approximately 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each Saturday. If you see an animal there at someother time, there are phone numbers listed their for contact with volunteers for adoption apts.
Our Adoption Process:We talk to all prospective adopters. Anyone interested in adopting is asked to fill out an applicaiton information sheet. We check vet references, etc. If the prospective adopter is a renter, we verify that a pet is permitted. When approved, the adoption fee is $90; an adoption contract is completed.
Prior to adoption all our animals are spayed or neutered. Each cat/kitten has been tested for aids and leukemia. All are treated for fleas, wormed and given all appropriate shots.
