Many of you have asked how you can aid our impacted neighbors. Thank you!

It is because of friends like you that HSBV is ready to support our community and act β€” at a moment’s notice β€” as a safety-net for animals in need. The greatest way to help is to make a donation that can be used where funds are needed most during times of disaster. Please consider making a donation to our Emergency Safety Net Fund:

Your gift will ensure HSBV can provide emergency boarding, free pet food and supplies, and veterinary care for evacuees of these wildfires, and thousands of other families facing crisis.

We also encourage you to consider a donation to these organizations, who are also working hard to support those affected by the fires:

* At this time, we are not in need of volunteer assistance providing animal care, or foster home placement, and are not in need of supplies. Due to rapidly shifting needs, your monetary gifts best enable HSBV to quickly adapt services and programs to provide temporary boarding, lost & found services, veterinary care, and pet care supplies. Thank you for your support!
