Don’t Forget the Animals

As many hunker down with their furry friends, others suffer quarantine loneliness or economic uncertainty, the Humane Society of Huron Valley (HSHV) is open for the most critical needs of the animals, including animal intake for strays and urgent surrenders, adoptions to stem overflow and isolation loneliness, and essential veterinary services.

CEO Tanya Hilgendorf says, “While intense sanitation is always essential to a large shelter concerned with herd health, HSHV is also complying with/exceeding all official recommendations, including social distancing, disinfection of hands and common areas, and ceasing all non-urgent services, activities and events.”

She explains, “Closing our doors at this time is simply not an option. No one knows how long the pandemic will last and homelessness and cruelty wasn’t on the decline. Now, economic downturns will hurt both people and animals more. Like so many others, we are in a tough position with resource and supply issues, but as long as we are standing, we will be here for the animals who need us most.”
