Why is there a boarding fee?

Any feline that is at HSoP, costs HSoP $5.00 per feline per day to provide food, water, litter, shelter and staff wages to attend to that feline. 

Any canine that is at HSoP, costs HSoP $10.00 per canine per day to provide food, water, shelter and staff wages to attend to that canine.

Without charging owners boarding fees for the services provided by HSoP, HSoP would not be able to provide a safe place for stray animals to temporarily stay while the owners are reached.   

Why is there an intake fee?


Anytime a kennel is in use, it limits the amount of animals HSoP can take in.  Should an animal need to utilize a kennel, there is a fee associated with that use, and the staff wages to provide that kennel and properly sanitize between use.

Medical care for stray owned animals:

Should a owned stray arrive at HSoP in need of immediate veterinary care and an owner cannot be contacted, HSoP will use their vet partner to provide needed care to stabilize the stray animal.  Owners will be required to pay any vet care costs associated with stabilization and pain management before their animal can be released back to their care.
