Humane Heroes Wall of Love

We are incredibly lucky to have so many wonderful people in our community who are inspired to help the animals. They bring us amazing donations of food, supplies, and funds gathered from all over and anywhere they can. Many even donate their personal time! They are amazing advocates for the animals and HSSC, so we want to give these Humane Heroes the very special shout outs they deserve!!
