Attention: The safety of our adopters and volunteers is our highest priority. HART has resumed adoption events at the Chantilly Petsmart. We ask that adopters that are not fully vaccinated wear a mask while outside and that all adopters, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask while indoors.

HART's Summer Social

Meet & Mingle to Celebrate Animal Rescue!

HART's Board of Directors invites you to a special event to celebrate saving lives! HART's Summer Social will take place on Sunday, August 1st at Lost Barrel Brewing. HART volunteers will have a chance to win great prizes and receive free HART swag. We appreciate all the time and effort you invest in this organization and hope you will join us for a fun day out to mingle with current friends and meet new friends with the same passion for saving animals. Family, friends and dogs are welcome to attend. This free, outdoor event is open to everyone. Our volunteers are the heart of HART, and we hope to see you there. Best of all, our event is being supported by Lost Barrel Brewing as their Sunday FUNDay event which means they are donating 10% of all beer sales to HART during the duration of our event. HART is picking up the tab for non-alcoholic drinks for volunteers. More details to come! Please email the HART Board of Directors with any questions. Save the date!

"Sponsor Hope" - Save pets in High Kill Shelters!

Our new sponsorship program will help us rescue even more dogs and cats from high kill shelters.  These dogs and cats are in desperate need of our help. For many of them, HART is often the last or only resource.
