Frequently Asked Questions  -  (and Answers)

What is your time limit for an animal?

HSCI is a limited intake facility, which means that we will not take in animals if we are full. This ensures all pets entering our shelter receive a fair chance at adoption and a new life.

We do not have a time limit for pets awaiting adoption. While most find new homes in a relatively short time, we have had residents in our shelter for up to two years before the right family came along.
