Thrift Store Donations Needed
The HSHC is in dire need of donations to its thrift shop located in Clarksburg, WV. Run by volunteers, 100% of the profits go to the shelter - which simply could not survive without the shop's revenue.

Friends of the HSHC Drive
As the economy continues to lag, it has a devastating impact on the pets in our community. Our shelter continues to see a significant increase in animal surrenders. And our operating costs to care for and place these pets have gone up considerably. As an example, I would like to share with you a recent animal rescue story.
Halfway Home to You Expansion Project
The goal of the capital campaign is to raise $250,000 for the expansion of our existing facility so that we may rescue and place additional animals before they are euthanized at the Animal Control Facility. (Note: As of January 2012, we are in need of $50,000 to reach our goal.)
The new addition to our shelter will provide nine indoor/outdoor dog runs, a surgical suite and a state-of-the-art facility for cats.
