HART is a volunteer only rescue organization with no physical location, phone, or paid employees. Volunteers will do their best to respond within 24 to 48 hours.

Owner Surrenders:

HART’s mission is to rescue homeless animals. Your own pets should be considered part of your family, and so if you absolutely must surrender a family pet, we encourage you to try to place your animal with another family member, or a friend. Another option is your local no-kill animal shelter.

However, if you have exhausted all other options, we do occasionally accept owner surrenders in certain limited circumstances. An open foster home must be available, or the owner would agree to foster until the animal is adopted, if we deem this to be an acceptable option. The animal must be up to date on all vetting and spayed/neutered or the owner must be willing to pay for these services at one of our preferred veterinarians. In addition, a surrender fee will be charged to help offset the costs of keeping the dog or cat in our rescue until adopted.
Please note that HART does not have a shelter or other physical location, i.e., the above address is for mail only.

All animals in our care are located either in a foster home of one of our volunteers or temporarily in boarding at one of the veterinary hospitals or boarding facilities that we coordinate with. Our animals can be seen in person at one of our regularly scheduled Adoptathon events, or arrangements can be made by emailing the above address with your specific request concerning one or more animals of interest. An Application for Adoption can also be submitted using the link on our home page, which may help speed up the adoption process, and/or inquiries concerning specific animals may be made through Petfinder or Adopt-a-Pet. Please also note that there may be some delay between submitting your inquiry or Application and the time that you receive a response from one of our volunteers, but we will contact you as soon as we can, typically within 24-48 hours, and we appreciate your interest in our available animals!


HART fosters provide a safe, loving, structured environment for our animals until they are adopted into their forever homes. Our rescue can’t operate without our dedicated foster families.

Top notch veterinarian care, All currently needed vaccinations, Specialized treatment and surgeries as needed, 24 Pet Watch Microchips, Spay / neuter of all animals.
