8th Annual Hope for the Holidays Summary

Thanks to your generous support, we were able to raise $132,000 for the life-saving programs and services at HSU!

We hope you enjoyed watching our 8th Annual Hope for the Holidays Telethon on Fox 13 Sunday, Nov. 29th! Not only is that a record amount of donations that will benefit thousands of shelter pets, all the animals at HSU were on their best behavior and 172 were adopted over the weekend! That is a record number of adoptions as well and we thank our amazing staff for their hard work.
