Many of the local veterinary clinics frequently have stray or relinquished animals looking for a good home. Here are the animals we have available for adoption today. All animals come spayed or neutered and are up-to-date on their vaccinations.  

The Good Samaritan Fund

What is it?

The Good Samaritan Fund was developed by the staff of HVS in an effort to buffer expenses and allow us to provide care for animals that would most likely otherwise be euthanized.

Abandoned animals are all too often found roaming the streets of our community or may be relinquished by their owners who are unable to provide for their needs. Pets can be involved in car accidents or house fires where owners are hospitalized or pass away. The ‘Good Samaritans’ of our community frequently bring these frightened and injured animals in to our facility – in the hopes that we may provide the nurturing and medical attention needed to save a life. These services are most often provided without question and at the expense of the veterinary hospital…and can become quite costly. 

How does it work?

100% of your contributions will go directly toward the medical expenses to care for these animals in need.  Dr. Ruisi’s time will be donated and medical services will be provided at discounted rates, allowing more animals to receive care. 

How can you help?

Contributions can be made anonymously in any denomination – all donations are greatly appreciated and allow us to provide care for the animals in need.
