Our Featured Pet: Meet Tia...  

Tia is about 11 years old and came to us after her person passed away. Tia is currently in foster care, as she was not adjusting well to life in a cage and was becoming very agitated.

This beautiful girl has loads of attitude and needs to be the queen of the castle!  She does not like other cats or dogs, so Tia needs to be an only pet.  Tia likes to play and can get very competitive, she’ll growl at her toys if she thinks they are winning!  

If you are looking for a cat that doesn’t need to sit on your lap, or doesn’t want to be cuddled and kissed, consider Tia.  This girl likes to do her own thing.  She loves to follow around her foster dad, but never has a need to be picked up, just a face rub once in awhile is all she wants.

Tia is spayed and is up to date on all of her shots.

If you are interested in meeting Tia, serious inquiries only, as she is with a foster family, please email or call the shelter at 705-878-4618.

The Grand Unveiling of of Building-Donor Monument!


January 16th was a big day for us! It was our grand unveiling of our building-donor monument!
This monument was a long time coming and we had many challenges with it, but with the help from Jack Bartholomew of Sanderson Monument, this long awaited 'thank you' is now a reality.  Come by the shelter and take a look at this beautiful piece of work.

The current names are of the people and businesses who donated larger amounts of money to help us build our shelter.
Want to see your name, pet's name or business name on the monument?
If you donate to our building fund, because repairs and upgrades are always needed, we will have your name added! Ask us for details on how you can contribute.
Thank you again to everyone who has supported HSKL!
Pictured are Jack Bartholomew of Sanderson Monument and HSKL Executive Director, Henny Venus.
