My story

Can't decide between a cat and a dog? Well, Meet Diamond, she's the best of both worlds! Diamond may take some time to warm up to you, but once you've won over her heart, you will have it forever. Whatever you do, do it with passion-that's Diamond's motto! Whether she's eating, battling toys, playing in the water hose, or giving you kisses, she does everything to the fullest. She hopes so badly that you will notice her over the other dogs; she just can't help but call for your attention with all the enthusiasm she can muster! She is eager to learn and to please, and will match your efforts with twice the return in lifelong friendship! Diamond has been very receptive to our training at the shelter, and gets so excited to train that her little tippy-tappy dancing feet can't contain her excitement to see you! Diamond has been with us since last July, and while she's become everyone's best friend, we would love nothing more than to see her thriving in a home! If you can provide her with a home without young children or cats, Diamond would love to meet you today!

Diamond is currently living in one of our wonderful foster homes. Adopting from foster is easy! Please email adoptions@hshv.org or call (734)662-5585 to arrange to meet Diamond today!

Additional adoption info

Thank you for considering adopting and saving a life! Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge you need to adopt while making the process a positive experience, so here are some things to know:

+ You must be at least 21 years of age to adopt at HSHV. We welcome all--from any county or state!

+ Prior to visiting an animal, you must complete an application. You can do this at the shelter, or save time by bringing a completed one with you by downloading it from our website at www.hshv.org/howtoadopt.

+ Some animals have special adoption requirements.

+ If you have a dog and wish to adopt another, we may require a dog-to-dog interaction.

+ Adoptions are first-come, first served and holds are limited to one 24-hour hold per family.

+ Please allow at least an hour if you plan on adopting. Bring your driver's license or other government-issued ID with proof of address, a copy of your lease (if it applies) and vaccination records for current pets.

+ Applications are accepted up until 15 minutes prior to closing.

+ Most adoptions are same-day, you'll take home your new friend!

When our animals go home, they've received an initial health check and have been:
+ Spayed/Neutered
+ Microchipped
+ Current on vaccinations (as appropriate to their age)
+ Dewormed
+ Feline Leukemia tested (kittens and cats)
+ Heartworm tested (adult dogs)
+ Temperament tested (adult dogs)

Every adoption from HSHV also comes with:
+ 30 day trial of pet illness & accident insurance
+ A discounted vet exam at the HSHV veterinary clinic
+ Access to our behavior helpline, free to adopters
