HSGB is committed to alleviating animal over-population and suffering on our island. Thanks to our Mission: Potcake Spay/Neuter project, “Operation Puppy Lift”, and ongoing education and community outreach initiatives, we are making a visible difference. Though we are not yet able to save every one of the over 1,400 animals we take in annually, in the last six years we have reduced our euthanasia rate by over 25%. We look forward to a day in the near future when the only animals euthanized are those too sick or injured to be treated.
Please take a few minutes to browse through our website and learn more about us and our beloved potcakes and potcats!
Cats are happy to see you when you come home, but they are also quite capable of entertaining themselves (i.e. mostly napping) during your long work or school days. Make sure they have plenty of clean fresh water, a little dry kibble, and can't escape through a window or door, and they will be fine.
For entertainment and relaxation purposes, you can't beat the antics of a cat. Having a cat for a companion is good for the soul and good for your health. Your daily stresses melt away in the company of your cat.
Potcakes typically have smooth, short fur with little or no undercoat, cocked ears, a hound-like rib cage and long terrier-shaped faces. More rare are the shaggy or rough-coated Potcakes. The "typical" Potcake is brown, but colors range from party (brindle) to black, white, cream, yellow, and red. Adults stand about 24 inches high at the shoulder. Normal adult weight is 25 pounds in the bush, but once healthy and homed, they can weigh 30-45 pounds, depending upon bone structure.
Please make a difference and save the life of a truly unique and WONDERFUL Potcake!
The shelter has no structural damage. Two windows were blown out and the x-ray machine may have water damage. The shelter generator is working and power has been restored to the majority of the island. Please help and God Bless You.
Children and pets have small lungs that are more susceptible to smoke inhalation and must be rescued quickly.
