Volunteer at HART

Volunteers are the heroes of HART, playing a crucial role in creating a safe haven for cats in need. Their dedication and love for cats bring our shelter to life, ensuring that each whiskered resident receives the attention and care they deserve. From cleaning and feeding to providing much-needed socialization, volunteers are the heartbeat of our operation. Without their selfless contributions, we wouldn't be able to create such a warm and loving environment for our cats and kittens.  Join us, and together, let's make a difference, one paw at a time.  Click below to learn more about Volunteering at HART.

Join HART's Foster Club

HART is looking for loving FOSTER HOMES for our cats and kittens! A foster home is a temporary home for a cat or kitten in need. HART provides all the food, supplies, veterinary care and support. All you need to provide is a warm home and plenty of love!

Why foster?
  • Fostering makes room in the shelter for new cats in need.
  • It helps give a sick, injured, or stressed cat a place they can heal.
  • It provides as safe place to grow and learn for kittens.
  • Fostering helps us learn more about the cats' personalities and helps socialize cats who are scared or not used to people.  
  • Fostering is also good for YOU!  It lowers stress and is very rewarding.

An easy, thoughtful way to make a future donation to HART. Consider leaving a legacy gift In your will or trust.

You may never see the animals your legacy gift will help, but you can ensure that many cats and kittens will live better lives tomorrow because of your generosity and foresight today. Pet overpopulation and homeless and neglected pets will be with us for the foreseeable future. By including HART in your estate planning, you can make a significant difference in their lives.

Although it is not difficult to leave a legacy gift to a charitable organization, it is important to get professional advice regarding the details—for example, drafting a codicil to a will or adding an amendment to a living trust.

 Thank You for considering HART in your estate planning.
