VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO COMMEND HALLIE HILL ANIMAL SANCTUARY IN CHARLESTON COUNTY FOR ITS FINE WORK IN CARING FOR ANIMALS IN NEED AND TO WISH THE SANCTUARY MUCH CONTINUED SUCCESS IN ITS MISSION.
Whereas, founded in 1988 by Helen McLeod Bradham, Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization that provides sanctuary for abandoned, abused, or neglected animals--a home with food, medical care, shelter, and love. The sanctuary, dedicated to providing a high standard of care to all its animal residents, regardless of their breed, age, or disposition, follows a "no kill" policy; and
Whereas, currently a sanctuary to over one hundred sixty dogs and more than fifty cats, Hallie Hill opens its arms and its forty acres to these animals. Within days of arriving, each animal is seen by a veterinarian to receive any and all necessary medical attention, from heartworm treatment to complex surgeries; and
Whereas, once the new arrival is healthy, it is introduced to an enclosure with plenty of space and a house complete with an automatic watering bowl, bedding, and heat lamps in the winter. Hallie Hill's grassy enclosures, long-term housing, exercise and socialization space, and calm environment work their healing on animal guests; and
Whereas, the sanctuary strives to find homes for the animals in its care but is also dedicated to providing a high standard of care to those who will call Hallie Hill their forever home. Volunteers and other members of the community donate time, money, energy, and supplies to enable the sanctuary to fulfill its mission; and
Whereas, to thank those who assist in accomplishing its mission, Hallie Hill is hosting a "Spring Reception in the Country" on Sunday, May 17, 2015; and
Whereas, grateful for Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary's outstanding work, the House takes great pleasure in recognizing the sanctuary for the compassionate care it ministers to its canine and feline guests in carrying out its mission of mercy. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, commend Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary in Charleston County for its fine work in caring for animals in need and wish the sanctuary much continued success in its mission.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary.
