   Welcome to HSVB.ORG for   

 

Keeping the promise to every animal.

We rely on the generous support of our neighbors to enable us to keep our promise — a promise made to each animal who comes to our door.
 


 

 

Adoption fees dropped to encourage adoption action.

"We face a serious challenge right now," observes Chalmers Morse, CEO and Executive Director of the HSVB&IRC. "We have an abundance of wonderful animals at our Shelter, all eager to find new homes, but not enough people are stepping up to adopt. So, we've decided to make it easier than ever for folks to take home a 'forever-friend.' That's why we're significantly lowering our adoption fees between now and the end of July."

Effective immediately, all cats will be $30. Dogs will cost $70, though Senior Dogs (over 5 years) will be $50. Certain "Patron Pets" will not be included in this promotion.

"We acknowledge these reduced fees won't cover our costs for spaying and neutering, microchipping, vaccinations, and all the other steps we take to prepare animals for adoption," adds Morse, "but we must find homes for these animals, so we'll do what it takes to make it happen."

Our promise is simple. Every animal will always be welcomed at HSVB&IRC. They may be old, sick, or injured. They may have behavioral issues that make them unwelcomed elsewhere. But, at HSVB&IRC, our doors are always open to all animals, as are our hearts.

We regularly accept animals that come from many places. At times, concerned citizens bring us litters of kittens they have discovered. Perhaps an Animal Control Officer delivers a dog who has been chained outside, under the summer sun, neglected and abused. We often encounter displaced families who can no longer afford to feed their family pets. We even receive animals from other shelters or rescue organizations that are limited in their capacity and need our help.

Whatever the situation, every animal is welcomed at HSVB&IRC.

Every day of the year, we rely on you to ensure that we keep our promises to the animals. What does our promise mean?
 
Our promise means we will NEVER...
We promise that we will ALWAYS...


Summer months pose a special challenge for our Shelter. This time of year, we see a huge increase in recently-born litters arriving, all needing to be fed, nurtured, spayed/neutered, and placed for adoption. Accordingly, our costs go up at a time when many of our dependable supporters have left for the season.

When you DONATE, you will help us...

Especially during the summer, please remember us with your contributions and continued support. For your convenience, you can make an online donation from our secure server website by “clicking here.

On behalf of the animals who rely on our promise to secure their future, we say "thank you."

 


 

What does it mean to be an "Open Door, Open Heart" Animal Shelter?

We are Indian River County’s only open admission animal shelter. That’s an important distinction. It clearly sets us apart from every other Shelter in the area.

But, do our friends and supporters really understand what these words mean? Please take a minute and learn why «read more...»
