Director’s Message

Grey Cat with Glasses

Welcome to the HSOTC!

As we look toward the upcoming 2017/2018 fiscal year, we want to thank our many supporters who have helped us continue our mission of providing pet adoptions, spay/neuter services, and medical assistance to our community. As the only no-kill, limited intake shelter in the county, this last year we have been able to save more animals, assist in decreasing our area’s pet population, and provide medication and medical assistance needed for our shelter animals. Specifically for the 2016 fiscal year, we:

  • Adopted 72 cats and 161 dogs
  • Spayed or neutered 341 animals
  • Provided in excess of $14465 in medical care, medical supplies, and medications
  • Funded over $19900 to spay/neuter HSOTC animals before adoption and help offset the costs of our low-income spay & neuter                                                    and all of this accomplished with a volunteer Board and limited staff.

In addition, the HSOTC provides free humane education classes and presentations to the community in order to teach individuals and families how to become more responsible pet owners. Emergency veterinarian assistance and pet food are among some of the other vital outreach service the shelter provides.

The HSOTC is supported solely by contributions, grants, bequests, proceeds from our Paw Prints in Heaven Crematorium, and annual fundraising efforts. We receive no government funding nor are we associated with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). That is why it is so important that our community be aware of these simple facts; we need the support of our community in order to survive and we need your help in getting that message out. By supporting the HSOTC, you are helping us find forever homes for the homeless animals of Tuolumne County.
