Support HART

Make a Donation

HART depends on the generosity and support of people like you who believe that the animals we rescue and shelter deserve loving care in a safe, secure and healing environment. Your donations also help support our efforts to build a “community of kindness” by promoting spaying/neutering of companion animals, educating the public about responsible pet care and by encouraging the humane treatment of all animals.

We are a private, volunteer-run shelter and do not receive government funding of any kind, so we rely entirely on the support of individuals, businesses and foundations.  HART is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so all contributions are tax deductible as provided by law.

Our cats are not confined in cages, but live in an open environment where they are free to play, climb, nest, and form bonds with one another.

Sponsor a Cat

Sponsoring a HART cat is a great opportunity to support the shelter and have a direct impact on the lives of our residents who consider the shelter to be their “home” while they await adoption. Sponsorships are available for $15 monthly or $150 yearly.  Please click the following link for more information: HART's Sponsorship Program.

Help to Raise Funds

Printer Cartridge Redemption

Instead of tossing your empty ink jet and laster printer cartridges in the trash and hurting the environment, they can now be brought to HART where we will turn them into cash for the shelter.  ALL brands are accepted, but the original manufacturer's label must still be on the cartridge and it must not have been previously recycled. Please note that we are only accepting small cartridges at this time. If you're unsure whether your cartridges meet this criteria, bring them to HART anyhow. We'll sort them out, so bring them all!  Please contact Sharon Lewis with questions.

Support Our Partners
