Her and the local volunteers have donated many hours bathing animals, changing litter boxes, etc. to maintain their operation to save animals. (They are a no kill shelter.) She and others will drive out of state to pick up animals from kill shelters before they are destroyed and stand outside PetSmart 2 hours away from her home in hopes of getting these animals adopted. She has obtained several grants but they could only be used to have the animals spayed/neutered and the funds have been used. (Not to buy food, litter, etc.)

They collect the animals that the homeowners leave behind and try to find them homes. I know in Las Vegas I personally have been to homes that have had abandoned pets left behind. It's heart breaking to find these guys and if you are an animal lover like me (wonder where I get it) it pains me to wonder if the pet will end up adopted or taken to a shelter that can't afford to keep the animal for more than a week.
With the current state of the economy, donations are WAY DOWN and the HSCC is barely scrapping by. If you have extra office supplies, old blankets / towels, gift cards in your wallet that sit there, etc., please consider boxingn up the items and donating to my mom's organization or one near you. I am sure these shelters are getting a lot of abandoned animals and need the help now more than ever.
AND REMEMBER TO SPAY & NEUTER!
