Mission Statement

We are a foster-based, all-volunteer organization that saves and improves the lives of vulnerable animals by providing care and placing adoptable animals into loving forever homes.

Description

HSLC has been helping animals since our founding in 1966. HSLC has no paid staff nor a physical facility or shelter; all of our animals are in foster homes, display cages at local pet stores, or in temporary boarding until they are adopted into their furever homes.

Thanks to community support, HSLC helped thousands of animals in 2021:

  • 185 cat adoptions
  • 3 dog adoptions (Note: we need more dog fosters!)
  • 111 community cats helped
  • 1,165 pets spayed/neutered
  • 3,482 Loudoun Pet Pantry animals fed
