We are closed Thursday, July 4.

Every year we celebrate certain holidays with a fanfare of parades, parties, and fireworks! The splendid displays of aerial pyrotechnics may be fun and enjoyable for the human species, but our pets do not always share our enthusiasm. This season, we are once again partnering with Mr. W Fireworks to remind you to keep your pets safe. We are very thankful for Mr. W Fireworks, as they support our mission by donating a portion of their proceeds to SAHS pets!
