Featured Pet: Bubba Age: 5-years-old

Say hello to Bubba! He is such an easy-going boy who just wants to be outside, sniff all scents he can, and lay in the grass to sunbathe. He'd like to be the center of attention as the one and only pet in the home and would do best in a quiet, routine home with adults only. Bubba is a very good walker, likes to give kisses, and loves to play with squeaky toys. His favorite thing is getting a new toy to squeak every morning.

Adoption Counselors Needed

Calling all animal lovers! Now that COVID restrictions are loosening and HSWM will be able to fully open up to the public and volunteers again, HSWM is in need of more Adoption Counselors. Adoption Counselors are matchmakers--volunteers that help pets and adopters get to know each other and are part of sending animals to loving homes each day.

Adoption Counselors must be 18 years of age or older, with great people skills, and ideally a background in customer service. They must be comfortable working around domestic animals and speaking to customers and staff. They seek Adoption Counselors to help with daily adoptions, Tuesday through Friday, for any available shifts, including 11 a.m.-1 p.m., 1 p.m.-3 p.m., 2 p.m.-4 p.m., or 4 p.m.-6 p.m.

Contact Ashley at to find out more about becoming an Adoptions Counselor.
