Her feet have been trimmed, her teeth floated and she's putting on much needed weight - but she still has a long way to go.

Help us "MAKE THE MATCH" and keep rescue operations strong!

We have been busy (!), and our expenses have grown accordingly.

The costs to rescue the two ponies have exceeded $5,000, and the costs for the seven horses hit $8,000. Expenses to provide daily care until they can be adopted out to safe homes will continue to grow.

Fortunately, we have a generous donor who has offered to match all donations up to $1,000. As a nonprofit organization, HSSF relies solely on your generosity and compassion not only to rescue abused and neglected animals, but also to get them prompt medical care, restore their health, find safe homes, and work with authorities to bring charges against the perpetrators. If you can respond with your most generous gift possible, it will be doubled and would help these animals immensely.

We knew there was a huge need for Humane Officers in Placer County when we started our program. The many calls and the dire situations have confirmed the need as well as strengthened our commitment to animal welfare. We can do the work only with funding assistance from you. Please make as generous a donation as you can before April 8th to have it matched dollar for dollar, and please inform your friends and family of the need.

Thank you for your love of animals and continuing support.

Fourteen dogs got a break when HSSF Humane Officers rescued them from their plight. All have found new loving homes.


We listened when you said, "Animal cruelty must be treated like the serious crime that it is". We responded by organizing HSSF and putting Humane Officers in the field.

This past week, we received a huge victory for the animals. The defendant in the Loomis case last July was charged with 7 felony counts of animal abuse.

The victory came when the judge enjoined the defendant from having any "dogs, cats or livestock" pending the outcome of this case. He also gave her two weeks to give the animals she is currently keeping, back to the people she said owns them. Further, the judge gave HSSF humane officers the right to oversee the animals on the property until they have all been transferred. Be sure to celebrate -- this was an incredibly beneficial (judicial) order on behalf of the animals.

A monthly donation of just $15 creates reliable revenue and would help us continue our work.


Thank you for your support!!
