How to Help


Without support from you, the public, we cannot help all of the animals that we would love to help. A tax deductible donation of any amount is a much appreciated aid to the fulfillment of HART's mission.


The most important way you can help, adopt a pet and make it a part of your family.


Provide an invaluable service to HART and to an unfortunate animal in search of a permanent home. As a HART foster home, you will provide a temporary place for one of our friends to stay until we can place them into a permanent home. Dogs and cats who have spent time in foster homes are better prepared to go to their forever home.


Giving of your time is the best way to show your support for the animals that we are trying to help. If you can spend some time helping us with one of the many tasks that are always needing to get done, we would be forever grateful.
