About Our Rescue Group:




Humane Animal Rescue Team and our Animals!



The Humane Animal Rescue Team (HART) is a non-profit, tax exempt, all volunteer organization dedicated to partnering with local animal shelters in the Dallas Fort Worth area to provide foster care and find permanent homes for adoptable companion animals.



When these animals are ready for adoption, they are made available online and at "Adopt-A-Pet" events through the generosity of local pet supply stores.



HART's primary goals are to promote the humane treatment of all animals and provide good companions for their owners.



HART also maintains an educational program to encourage owners to spay or neuter their companion animals.

* ADDITIONALLY:


The minimum donation for a cat/kitten is $100 and a dog/puppy is $125. We spend over $200 on each of our pets, which includes medical care, boarding and food. Your donation is not to pay for the medical care on the animal that you are adopting; that has been paid for by previous donations. Your donation allows us to continue our rescue and adoption efforts. The donation is not refundable.


Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
