Diamond: 4 years old

Meet Diamond! Diamond is the very definition of an elegant lady! She'd love to find a quiet, peaceful home where she can be the center of attention as your only baby, furry or otherwise. Diamond is definitely a girl's girl and prefers the company of women over men, but she can be won over with time and trust. This gorgeous girl is very generous, and would be more than happy to share her beauty secrets with her new furever family!

Short Term Fostering

Did you know that you can sign up to be a foster, even a short-term or overnight foster on whatever timeline works for you?

You can foster for HSWM for 1-2 days, 2-3, a weekend, a week, two weeks, or more! Whatever works best for your schedule! Even if you can only take a pet for a day or two, this gives pets a much-needed break from the kennel environment, and gives HSWM more details to share with adopters!

If you're interested in becoming a short-term foster, please sign up at and let them know your availability.
