Our mission is to prevent cruelty and neglect to animals; to educate children and all members of the community about animal welfare issues; and to provide for the health and well-being of animals with an emphasis on spay/neuter to prevent pet over-population.
We achieve our mission statement through the following programs and services to the community:
- Low cost spay/neuter, vaccine and wellness veterinary clinic, humane education and cruelty investigation.
- The HSSBV does not receive any funding from government/city/county agencies or any national animal organizations, such as the Humane Society of the United States. All of our funding is received through private donations, fundraising efforts and grants. In order to support these efforts on a local level, donations can be made directly to the HSSBV.
- The HSSBV is not an animal control agency or a shelter. We do not adopt out animals, pick up deceased animals or strays, license pets or provide any animal control services.

Contact your agency of service for information on strays, lost pets, animal complaints, licensing information, animal pick up, etc.
