Pet Food Share
Pet food and pet supplies are available at the shelter at no cost seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. We are not able to guarantee the availability of a particular brand, protein or specific diet. Delivery may be available on a limited basis upon request.
Temporary Pet Housing
HSBV provides temporary pet housing for hospitalized community members, victims of domestic violence, and those displaced from their homes due to natural disasters. We consider other situations on a case-by-case basis, depending on current resources and space availability.
Urgent Veterinary Care
Our veterinary hospital may be able to support your needs and keep your pet healthy or get your pet on the road to recovery. If you are experiencing financial hardship, job or home loss, or need support for your pet’s general wellness care our discounted veterinary SHARE program may be able to help. HSBV offers payment options and extends safety net service grants, thanks to our generous donors.
