The Bougie take on HSH

We take shelter pet photos at HSH about once every week or so, and here's what we've learned in our time there ...

  • The workers, volunteers, office staff, and board members LOVE animals!
    Spending so much time there has let us see just how much they give to make sure the animals of the shelter are loved and well-cared for during their stay. Although a lot of furry (and sometimes scaly) friends make their way through HSH, they're all given names and become known to everyone working there.
  • Their work (and love) matters and makes a difference.
    We've seen animals transform from 100% terrified to happy-go-lucky, from emaciated and hairless (like poor little Rescue) to pudgy couch potatoes (like our guy, Gus, who we adopted from HSH!). So many of the animals get a better chance at life, all because of the hardworking and caring team at HSH!
  • They operate on a shoestring (Like No dollars).
    We're fairly sure it's pure love of animals (and, even more, concern for their welfare) that keeps everyone at HSH going. It's probably not the money, the working conditions, or some of the four-legged customers that arrive there (some of the dogs and cats are, mmm, challenging?—we'd guess the workers might have better suggestions for word choice here). We know that operating on a shoestring contributes the lion's share of downsides to working at the shelter.
So we thought ...
Let's raise some moolah for the Humane Society of Hobart!
