As fall begins, we thank our many supporters for participating in this year’s Strut Your Mutt event and joining us to celebrate our 90 years of service at our Open House/Block party.   Your participation and generosity allows us to accomplish our goal of ‘putting people and pets together.’

On October 9th, Wells Fargo Bank presented the SGVHS with a $1,000 donation as part of their Community Connections program. Each year, Wells Fargo Branch Managers select a non-profit as their choice for the program and, this year, Elaine Chan, Assistant Vice President and Manager of the Wells Fargo Valley selected the SGVHS for this generous donation.  Thanks to Wells Fargo for supporting our mission!   1000 check
