This past weekend, HART held its monthly Adoption Event, with many staff members, volunteers, and potential adopters.
Three adult dogs and three puppies were adopted. It is not surprising that our Facebook postings about adoptions are the most popular news: every life we save is a victory in our constant struggle to improve the lives of animals in our region.
That is HART's mission - one that we accomplish through the work of many people who care greatly about animals. As of June 30, 2015, HART has achieved the following this year:
- Low-cost spay/neuter surgeries = 217 (thanks in part to a grant from The Snyder Foundation for Animals)
- No-cost spay/neuter surgeries = 413 (thanks to a grant from the Maryland Department of Agriculture).
From 2009 to 6/30/2015, HART has performed 6,040 spay/neuter surgeries.
- Rescues of animals from the Garrett County Animal Shelter = 250
From 2003 to 6/30/2015, HART has rescued 6,718 animals.
- Animal Adoptions at the HART Center = 33
From 2013 to 6/30/2015, HART has found adoptive homes for a total of 89 animals.
Our staff consists of people dedicated to animal welfare who respond without hesitation to an animal in need. Our volunteers are people who give freely of their time and energy to make it possible for us to do what we do.
As we complete the last phase of the HART Animal Center (the Adoption Wing), we are asking all our friends to help us in whatever way is possible: donations, volunteering, adopting... This is a Time to Help. As many of you know, our house raffle did not succeed so we need donations - and every little bit helps!
