Mission: To improve the lives of companion animals in our
Programs: Hsomc operates a no-kill shelter with a goal to provide a clean, safe environment, health care, spay/neuter of shelter pets and adoption services as well as proactive programs to control pet overpopulation. Animals come to the shelter from many paths - the cat or dog found wandering, the elderly or ill person who can no longer care for a pet, the unemployed who cannot afford to keep the furry friend; the pet who was victim of neglect and sometimes abuse. Hsomc works to rescue, reunite, rehabilitate and rehome stray, unwanted, abandoned and lost animals in our community. Other services include a pet pantry, community education, youth group, foster care and volunteer programs. Hsomc primarily provides services to midland county but also works with people and other rescue groups in surrounding communities. 2014 marked the 4th year of operation, with over 10,000 animals having been placed through adoption, foster care and rescue homes and for the 3rd year in a row hsomc has been honored for shelter performance.
As a former employee, I know the inner workings of this shelter and I can say first hand, they are the most dedicated, hard working and compassionate people in animal rescue period. A job like this is never easy. There are always hurdles, as a lot of emotions can be involved, and they always find a way to overcome and become better in the process. They have one of the highest save rates in the state and do everything they can for the animals in their care. I have fostered, volunteered, and as I said been employed there and it has changed my life for the better. This organization is not funded by the county or city and needs all the help they can get. Please consider donating!
I foster cat's through the HSOMC and they are a fantastic organization. They deal with so many animals and do their best to find homes for each and every one of them. It is really inspiring. My experience with the HSOMC has been nothing but positive.
