ASPCA Rachel Ray $100K Challenge

Through August 31

HSCA is one of 50 shelters nationwide competing in the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K challenge. Our shelter could win a piece of the $600,000 in grant funding, but we win regardless by working with the community to save more lives. Our goal is to adopt 675 animals to loving homes during the challenge. We can only do this with your support! Join us this June, July, and August to support our efforts to save more lives. We have adoption specials and events happening almost every weekend.
