Mission: The Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART), is a no-kill animal rescue group that has been saving lives since 1990. Our mission is to assist unwanted, otherwise homeless and abused dogs and cats in the Northern Virginia/Washington DC metropolitan area. HART is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization and a participant (#8363) in the United Way/ CFC annual campaign. We have a strong dedicated core of volunteers who work tirelessly to help HART save lives and place our furry friends in carefully screened, loving homes. HART helps as many dogs and cats as we can and doesn't discriminate based on age or health. In addition to puppies and kittens we also help sick, old, maimed, mixed and pure breeds. The only factor limiting the number of animals we can help is our financial limitations. Donations are increasing slowly every year. We are so very grateful - every dollar given helps to save lives. In 2002, HART found loving new homes for more than 1200 dogs and cats! With your help, we will surpass that record number this year!
Programs: The homeless animals rescue team (hart), a no-kill animal rescue group. Hart provides assistance to people who, due to failing health, financial distress, or other personal circumstances, require assistance relating to their pets. Hart works with shelters and those with unwanted pets to facilitate adoptions and rescue animals from shelters where they are facing being put to death. Revenue for this program is from adoption fees. During 2011 over 1,015 animials were assisted by hart.
I adopted a dog from HART and started volunteering with them because I was so impressed with how thorough, caring, and dedicated the people are. HART rescues both the easily adoptable as well as the animals who need more -- more medical care, training, socialization, care. When rescuing puppies and kittens, they never leave the moms behind and always rescue them too. HART is a great organization and I am proud to be part of it.
