Checkers is an active five-year-old English Spaniel mix who is ready to explore with you! A gentle giant at around 85 pounds, he has a sweet personality and a chill attitude. The staff isn’t sure how he feels about cats, but he’s polite with other dogs and really loves people—he hasn’t met a stranger yet. Checkers enjoys interesting walks and a good ear rub. If you need a walking pal, he would love to come along!

Looking for a young, untested soul to help become a good citizen? Deacon is ready for anything! At around a year old, this 50-pound black Lab mix is raring to go! Energetic, playful, and excited, this young man will need a lot of exercise and a patient leader to teach him the ropes.

Deacon is very food motivated and sits nicely. He also gets along well with others but might be a bit much for the senior set. Deacon would love to learn a job for you!

HSBC wants to thank everyone who continues to support the shelter and its residents with donations! They are still in need of a bottle brush and, two square laundry baskets. They are also hoping for Wholesome Sportmix chicken and rice dog and cat food and gallon-sized Odaban cleaner-all of which are available online at, and locally at the Pet Store. Another item in short supply is Panacur wormer. Also available online and at Walmart, one three-day supply is enough for one dog.

Don’t forget HSBC’s wish list on Amazon, where you can ship right to them! From your Amazon profile, go to your Accounts & Lists, and under Your Lists, click on Find a List or Registry. From there type in the shelter email, and start shopping. Every little bit helps!
