Did you Know Rabbits Make Good Pets? Lola Would be Perfect!
First she's sour, then she's sweet. Sour, sweet, and cute--meet bunny Lola!
Her foster mom says "Y'all know those candies sour patch kids? Lola is the definition of them, sour then sweet, so I'm nicknaming her Sour Patch Kid! Lola had a rough past so it's taking her time to open up and trust me, but we're getting there, slowly but surely! She's letting me pet her and taking treats from my hand, she really wants to be a good girl and I'm so proud of her progress. Yay Lola!
She loves snuggling up in her bed, and eating basil tops and other crunchy leafy greens, she's the cutest little muncher." If you're looking for a sassy bun with a ton of personality, Lola is the girl for you!

Beagles All Adopted!
We are THRILLED to announce that as of this Saturday, all of our rescue beagles have officially been adopted!
We'd like to thank each and every member of this community that offered to support these pups however you could. We received over 200 adoption applications, nearly 100 applications to foster these pups, and raised over $10,000 to help support the medical and behavioral care these dogs required. As a 100% donor-funded organization, NONE of this would have been possible without you!
From all of us at HSWM, and from every beagle going on to bigger and better things--THANK YOU for giving them the happy lives they've always deserved!
Thank you, Lacks Enterprises!
We'd also like to give a HUGE thank you to the employees at Lacks Enterprises, Inc. for naming HSWM the recipient of their recent staff giving campaign!
They donated an outstanding total of $15,050, and also came to volunteer for a day! As a 100% donor-funded non-profit, we can't do any of this lifesaving work without support from people like you. Thank you so much for giving to help the animals in our care!
