A donation of any amount would allow us to improve the lives of countless homeless dogs in Plumas County and beyond. Although we are appreciative of every gift we receive, monthly giving may be the only way HSAR will be able to continue the life saving work it provides. If you have adopted from HSAR, had a helping hand, or have personally experienced the good work that the entire organization has done for a homeless pet, then you know what a crucial role HSAR plays in saving the lives of unwanted animals in our community. We thank all of our supporters for their generosity. None of this would be possible without you.
