Staff

HSSC is powered by a dedicated team of over 40 employees, including 3 full-time veterinarians. The work is challenging and fast paced—and heartbreaking at times—but ultimately very rewarding. Time and again, we witness the incredible resilience of animals. We see the beginning stages of amazing relationships between adopters and their new pets. We enrich people’s lives through interactions with animals. We work with talented, passionate people who endeavor to bring about a world where all animals are cared for and loved. For a list of who to contact regarding specific inquiries, please see our Contact Us page.
