Do animals at HSCC have a time limit or maximum number of days that they can stay at the shelter?
No, as mentioned previously, we keep and care for every animal at HSCC for as long as it takes to find them a forever home. While considerations such as health, behavior, and quality of life may play a factor in how we make housing decisions, length of stay is not a factor. If an animal is experiencing an extended stay here we may try to find another shelter or location from which to place them, explore foster care opportunities, or make a particular push or pitch to find them a home. Animals have been here for as little as a day and for as long as a year. Since this is a place to visit – and not one to live – we try and hope to find good matches and forever homes as quickly as possible.
