Maty - HSCO Ambassador

Our beloved Shelter Ambassador, Maty Ouchida left us on June 15, 2016. Maty was instrumental in championing responsible pet care, animal safety, pet adoptions and her athletic abilities. She visited classrooms, hospitals, assisted living homes and other places in the community spreading understanding, kindness and love. Maty single-pawedly strengthened the animal-human bond and created many special memories for many across the globe.
