HSLWR primarily serves the east county areas of Manatee and Sarasota but will also extend centrally and west as needed. We will provide outreach education and programs to extend the no kill philosophy to surrounding areas, to municipal animal services where high euthanasia rates exist, and we will become ardent stewards and protectors for the animals. We will always to our best to help owners and animals that come to us from anywhere. A dog or cat has no idea where it came from or lives, just that it wants to live. We accept that and reach out to help all that we can.
