Christmas for the HSGC Kennel Event

HSGC will be hosting our second annual Christmas for the Kennel fundraiser at Temperance Hill shopping center on Friday and Saturday, November 27th and 28th from 10 am till 4 pm. We will have cookies and cocoa, an HSGC boutique, and adoptable pets, and we will be accepting donations for the kennel.  Our organization is 100% donation funded, and we need public support and volunteers to make this event a success!  All proceeds go toward helping abused, neglected, and homeless animals in our community get vet treatment and find new forever families.

If you are interested in volunteering, we need people to sign up for two hour shifts between 10 am and 4 pm on Friday and between 10 am and 6 pm on Saturday.  Please email us your hours available to volunteer at garlandcountyhumane@gmail.com and we will forward the info to our volunteer coordinator.

California Transport

Precious, Stormy, Jasper, Annie, Roxie, Suzy, Chloe, and three Chow mix pups went to California on transport today!  We are excited that these babies will be going to a private rescue organization there, where they will be adopted out locally to loving homes.  We have had great success with this organization in the past, as they place larger dogs into wonderful homes through a process of careful screening and follow up.

What is a “No Kill” Shelter?

We have questions repeatedly about whether or not we are a No Kill shelter.  The answer is yes.  Here is a great link to PAWS Chicago explaining the difference between No Kill and Never Kill, which clarifies this issue:

http://www.pawschicago.org/no-kill-mission/about-no-kill/defining-no-kill/

 

No Kill shelters save healthy and treatable. They euthanize only Non-Rehabilitatable pets who are irremediably suffering or dangerous to people or other pets.
Never Kill shelters do not euthanize. In these shelters, animals are often left in cages for years without proper socialization and care. These shelters often have a large proportion of behaviorally dangerous and nonrehabilitatable dogs.
Traditional or “Open Door” private shelters take in all animals, regardless of the shelter’s capacity and resources to treat. Unless a No Kill community, these shelters manage their shelter population by euthanizing animals that are healthy or have treatable conditions.
Animal Control shelters are government impoundment agencies or private shelters who contract with the government. These shelters’ primary responsibility is animal control, keeping the streets clear of homeless animals and being the community’s clearing house for homeless or unwanted pets. These shelters have to be “Open Door” to perform their mission.
