It's That Time Again... Help Us Prepare for Kitten Season!
"Kitten season" starts in spring, peaks in early summer, and ends in fall. This time of year, our shelter can quickly become overwhelmed with many unwanted and orphaned kittens who will not only need good homes, but require extra medical care and nurturing before they can be adopted. Please help where you can... DONATE, FOSTER, EDUCATE, ADOPT!
Every kitten under 8 weeks of age requires special care, socialization, and a series of vaccines to keep them healthy and prepare them for adoption. All kittens in our care will also be spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, and receive recommended preventative treatments through age 16 weeks or until they are adopted. Proper medical care is critical and can also be expensive, so extra donations and supplies are especially appreciated this time of year! Check our Wish List or contact us to find out what we need most!
Orphaned kittens under 8 weeks of age and nursing moms with babies need careful monitoring and a safe place to grow and develop into healthy, adoptable pets. We do our best, but resources are limited and a shelter is not the ideal place for this type of care, so we rely on volunteer foster homes to help! If you are interested in fostering for us, please call our shelter or contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
Unfortunately, there is an over-abundance of unsterilized cats mating in every community. The easiest way to help reduce the disturbing number of unwanted cats is to spay and neuter your own animals and encourage others to do the same. Learn more about low cost spay/neuter options>>
If you come across outdoor kittens, you may feel the need to immediately pick them up and bring them home or bring them to a shelter, but that might not be the best thing for the kittens, for you, or a shelter that is unable to care for them. Learn what to do when you find kittens>>
A Very Special Thank You To...
100 Women Who Care about Livingston County!
March 23, 2015 was an evening of happy celebration at our shelter as members of 100 Women Who Care about Livingston County awarded the HSLC a $10,600 check to help support our mission and positively impact the lives of our dogs and cats who stay with us until they can find their forever home. The group is made up of women who are interested in supporting the community by contributing to local charities together to increase the monetary impact. Read more>>

How Do You Choose Who to Help?
As you consider the many places asking for help, please remember the many faces who look to us for help every day! Our supporters have generous hearts and EXPECT us to speak up for the many homeless cats and dogs in our community who can't ask for help themselves.
We are ranked among the highest performing shelters in Michigan for animal save rates and adoptions, so you can feel good knowing each animal is receiving the highest quality care possible while we work hard to find them a home.
And, please keep in mind, we are a local, independent, non-profit organization, so you can be sure your donations are directly helping homeless animals in our community. We are not affiliated with any other animal organization and do not receive any government funding. It is only because of your support that we are able to give each homeless pet that enters our shelter a chance to find their forever home.
Adopt, donate, volunteer, or just help spread the word about our mission... you can make a difference! Learn more>>
