WOW! That's all we can say! When Tiffany and Mike Matson asked for help bringing in a donation this morning, we expected to carry a sack of kibble or a case of biscuits. We were surprised when it took a staff member, a volunteer, and both of the Matsons five full minutes to ferry this gigantic pile of gifts, beds, blankets, food, formula, biscuits, supplies, and toys in from their vehicle.
Tiffany and Mike said it was the least they could do for the shelter pets, and that they had help from Robert and Jeannette Ford with gathering the supplies. "It's a gift from our dog to these dogs," they said.
Thank you, Tiffany, Mike, Robert, and Jeannette . . . and thanks to supporters, donors, and volunteers everywhere who are going above and beyond to make sure the animals in the shelter have happy holidays and stay warm this December.

We regret to announce that our veterinarian's assessment of Nero, our mixed-breed dog who came in with hypothermia and severe damage to the face and skull, is not good. He will be humanely euthanized today. For additional information, you may visit our fundraising page where we raised enough money to pay for today's x-rays and vet visit. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping us provide Nero the compassionate care he needed and deserved today.
|Bear and his foster mom |
are getting out of here!
This week, Casia the elderly spaniel and Bear the noble Pyrenees blend both went into foster homes, and Harry Houdini came back to the shelter after a nice vacation.
If you live in Skagit County and would like to open your home for a short or long-term foster animal, drop by and apply. You'll warm your home, make a friend, and help to save a life.
We are awash with puppies at HSSV today! The M litter is five shnauzer blends that look like they'll grow to medium sized dogs. Three found homes. Martin and Matrix, who are both white with black markings, are still available. The Z litter is three little girls and a boy who were found beside a highway with big wormy bellies! They are sweet and beautiful, and look like lab/border collie blends. They are blonde (with one black puppy in the litter). Jupiter is the last of his litter, and he looks like a dobie mix with brown points and a black and white speckled chest. He is a real sweetie! Applications are being taken now for all seven of them.
