High Sierra Animal Rescue (HSAR), a no-kill shelter founded in 1999, has saved over 4,000 dogs and found them loving homes, growing in the process to a great community resource with spay/neuter services, humane education, and a safe place to land for the region’s dogs in a bind.
Most of the dogs who arrive at HSAR’s rescue facility from area shelters need a bit of extra attention —sometimes more than a bit, as in the case of a group of under-socialized Chihuahuas, recent arrivals now learning that humans can be pretty great, thanks to a lot of dedicated volunteers. For other dogs, it’s a medical problem, like needing treatment or a quiet place to convalesce. Whatever the issue, HSAR teams with vets, behaviorists, and a lot of kind folks to ensure each dog’s happy future.
