The HSC is an independent, non-profit organization offering: trusted collaborations, community involvement and effective alternatives for people AND animals. All programs play a role in delivering an opportunity to save lives and educate the public on key issues that lead to a truly compassionate community. The HSC is a a 501(c)(3) tax exempt, charitable, nonprofit organization. In 2000, the HSC began its purpose by working within the walls of the Culpeper County Animal Shelter - supplementing adoption efforts for dogs and cats. A few years afterwards, the HSC sought its own space downtown (office space) to begin the effort of running a full-time foster/adoption program that eventually grew to support other areas of animal welfare, offering other services, such as spay/neuter. Since then, the group has been growing and evolving within the community - seeking ways of best serving the community and its cats and dogs. Our current programs are: Community Spay/Neuter, TNR or Trap-Neuter-Return, Pet Food Assistance, Free Pit Bull Surgeries for Spay or Neuter, Rabies Vouchers, Disaster Prep for People & Pets & More.
