Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
Homeless Animal Rescue Team known as HART is a no kills shelter and adoption center for cats only in Cumberland, Maine. We have been around for over ten years, completely run by volunteers, and have built a new shelter in 2004 located on the corner of Route 100 and the Range Road.
HART is a volunteer organization that provides a safe refuge to hundreds of homeless cats each year. We rely primarily on the support of individual donors to help us rescue and provide shelter for these innocent animals. Please help the shelter cover the costs of food, veterinary care, supplies, and other expenses by sending a donation
Come Meet our Pets:
HART is open by appointment, and also the first Saturday of every month for an Open House. We have many events during the course of the year in the community, usually at area pet stores to promote awareness of our organization and also the adoption of our kitties. The weekend of October 3 and 4 HART will be hosting a Yard and Bake sale with opportunities for adoption that day as well. Our next outside the shelter event is October 11 at the Kennel Shop in Portland on Washington ave. HART volunteers will be there with kittens from 10 Am until 1 PM.
Our Adoption Process:
HART has an application process for people interested in adopting our cats and kittens. We are looking for responsible pet owners who agree to keep the cats indoors only. Part of the process is to confirm with a landlord that a pet is allowed in an adopter's rental and if there are other h animals in the home, a vet reference to make sure those pets are current on their vaccinations. We charge a 75.00 adoption fee and the cat i has already been neutered, tested for aids and leukemia, and up to date on vaccinations
