About Our Rescue Group:

Hart County Humane Society, Inc. is a Georgia registered non-profit organization with tax exempt status under IRS section 501(c)(3). We have an animal shelter license with the Georgia Department of Agriculture. We rescue homeless dogs and cats, shelter them in the homes of members of our organization, and at a small local kennel facility, and offer the animals for adoption. Our organization is a PetSmart adoption partner, and we participate in adoption events at the PetSmart stores in Anderson, SC (near Hartwell, GA) and other PetSmart stores nearby, and at local community events in Hartwell, GA. We promote spaying and neutering of pets through a Low Income Spay/Neuter certificate program by agreement with local veterinarians to do the surgery at a reduced rate for qualified applicants for a small fee.

Our Adoption Process:

We screen applicants to adopt a pet with an application form, interview, veterinarian reference and home visit. We want all of our pets to be adopted into homes where they are with the family inside at night and during family time. Our adoption fee is $125 for dogs and $75 for cats. All animals offered for adoption have been spayed or neutered, and are up to date on vaccinations and parasite preventives. Cats have been tested for FIV, feline leukemia and heartworms. Dogs have had a microchip implanted, and have been tested for heartworms and treated if positive. Adopters are required to sign an adoption agreement which includes a commitment to return the animal to the Hart County Humane Society at any time in the life of the animal if the adopter is unable or unwilling to keep and care for the animal, and not to give or sell the animal to anyone else.

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
