    Update on Clinton, oUr longest resident

    Clinton, our longest resident (two years), has been adopted by a wonderful lady who adopted Sammy Jo from us a year ago. Clinton, a Yellow Lab/Staffordshire mix, did not show well in the kennels and, as an abused dog, he did have trust issues. Since we are a no-kill shelter, we have the ability to give these dogs all the time they need to find that perfect match. We loved this beautiful boy and never gave up on the dream of placing him in a perfect and forever home. He and Sammy Jo play all day in a seven-acre fenced yard and thoroughly enjoy each other. Their Mom is a patient and understanding lady with a lot of love to give.

    We miss our boy but are so happy he is in his forever home.

    On Tuesday, April 12th, Brownie Troop #237 took a tour of the shelter. Besides showering the dogs and cats with love, the girls brought bags of food, toys, and treats for our animals AND gave us a check for $100, money they made from selling Girl Scout Cookies.

    We thank these wonderful Brownies, their Leader, Amanda Minick and their families for supporting our shelter and caring so deeply for animals.

    Congratulations to Foothill Leadership Academys 1st and 2nd graders who completed their Community Service Project for the animals at the HSOTC. The Foothill Leadership Academy requires their students to do 15 hours of community service and and we were contacted by six mothers who wanted their children to fulfill at least some of their hours at the shelter.

    As of May 31,2016, our Purrrfect Bargains Thrift Boutique will be closing its doors. We had hoped that re-purposing the store would bring it to the level to be sustainable, yet our economy, combined with the competitive environment, and other shops within the strip mall we occupy, put us in a position to make a prudent business decision to close. We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers for their support and appreciate everything you did to support the store and aid the animals in our care.

    We are looking for board members who believe in our mission and are willing to be active in their governance roles. We believe that our work has never been more important than it is today. If you consider yourself a person whose experience and involvement in the community would be an asset to our organization we hope that you will consider becoming a nominee.

    The HSOTC is entering a challenging and exciting time, as economic pressures on our services continues to rise.

And, we invite you to become part of our team.
