Hills Food, Shelter & Love


It takes many dedicated trustees, staff members, and contractors to provide the extraordinary programs and services that we offer to our community. Feel free to contact any of our staff members or stop by the shelter to find out how we might assist you with your adoption, surrender, or pet-care needs.
