Want to help HSDC in 2024? Becoming a recurring rescuer is one of the best ways to help us plan for the year. These reliable recurring donations make it easier for the Humane Society to budget with the benefit of having a predictable revenue stream, allowing us to make sure we have everything we need to help as many animals as possible. You can pick an amount to donate monthly that fits your budget knowing that you are contributing to the health and well-being of each animal that comes through our doors. As a non-profit organization we depend on donations to ensure the best possible care for our

animals in need. If you can pledge a monthly donation to our organization, we encourage you to sign up and help us plan with your pledge. You do make a difference!

Parvo- what exactly is it? It is the scary word that drops our hearts when we have a dog in our care that has tested positive for Parvo. It calls for IMMEDIATE action. We have a top notch protocol for this disease, and it has saved many lives! 🐾🐾🐾

It’s highly contagious, it can be deadly. It can also be prevented by getting dogs vaccinated.

Parvo is running through rural shelters and counties and it’s running through our backyard. High traffic areas such as dog parks can be a breeding ground for this disease and others

Please make sure that your dog is vaccinated to protect them. Talk to your Veterinarian about the expenses of Parvo treatment and about the 💉 . It saves lives!

These little Cavaliers just survived Parvo. They were Amish Mill discards and within 24 hours in our care, they broke with the deadly disease. This could have been prevented, but mill breeders do the bare minimum to stay “legal” at the expense of innocent lives. These pups would have went to those “pet stores” that buy from the breeders- and they would have broke with Parvo in a home. This just doesn’t sit well with us.
Sadly, one didn’t make it. 🌈 🌦️ We aren’t kidding when we say it can be deadly. 🥹

Here’s a link for more information:

3 of the 4 pups have homes, and Momma is still looking for just the right person to help her grow and become a confident lady!we wanted to show that these beauties do come into shelters. Adopt, don’t shop!

If you’re able to help, please donate to our very depleted medical fund to help save more lives like these little sweet innocent babies.

Here are direct ways to donate:

This is our sweetest boy Yukon. He was transferred to us from our wonderful Dog Wardens at the Delaware County Dog Shelter. He was picked up as a stray and as you can see from the pictures he needs some groceries! 🍔🍗🍖🦴

Yukon is so gentle, and is absolutely starved for attention. He loves other dogs and we know that he will be a loyal companion to his new family.

If you’re interested in meeting our boy, please submit an adoption inquiry: https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/HSDC/Dog

We had terrific accomplishments in 2023 with 2,000+ adoptions, with an overall increase of 18% from 2022! This wouldn’t have been possible without the support and donations from the community. We especially want to thank the families who adopted animals in need and the many dedicated foster families and volunteers. We can accomplish incredible things when we work together, give, and help. Thank you so much for your ongoing support, and with your help, we can do amazing things in 2024!

Gazpacho is a very charming 14-year-old senior boy living with diabetes. He is currently in a foster home where he shows off his friendly and quirky personality. Gazpacho enjoys a laid-back routine, lounging in sunny spots, eagerly awaiting meals, and loving gentle brushing and petting. He gets along well with the resident dogs and cats in his temporary home. Despite being elderly and diabetic, he navigates well using steps and ledges.

Gazpacho has been insulin-free during fostering, although ongoing veterinary care may be needed. If you have a special spot in your heart for seniors and would like to provide a loving home for this sweet hospice cat, submit an inquiry form and staff will contact you to arrange a meeting. *You may learn even more about Gazpacho on his bio.

Angel is quite the character! A little diva with a heart of gold, dreaming of finding her perfect match. It's adorable how selective she is with her affections. Whoever ends up with Angel will be in for a unique and fiercely
loyal companion.

Angel prefers a serene environment to reign supreme! A tranquil home where she can comfortably rule her kingdom without any disturbances. That's understandable; some royals require their peace and quiet to truly shine!

Disclaimer: She tolerates other dogs as long as they don’t look at or talk to her. Doesn’t she sound just perfect?! No kids please! If you’re looking for a lap dog, it may take work to get there, but she’s worth it!
