HEARTT Animal Refuge is a 100% volunteer, No-Kill animal refuge and adoption center. We rescue abandoned and abused cats and dogs, provide them with a home and good medical care until they are adopted. We are strong supporters of neuter/spay.

Our organization was founded in 2007. We have both state non profit and federal 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. Our mission is simple: Provide a safe, nurturing environment for cats and dogs until they are placed with permanent and loving forever families.

We do not receive any local, state, or federal funding. 100% of our funds come from loving donations. You can help too!

We hope all of our friends are healthy and doing well during this stressful time.  All of the dogs and cats at the shelter are doing well and are being cared for daily by our seasoned, long time volunteers.  We have been closed to the public but are slowly opening up adoptions and our volunteer program.

If you are interested in adopting or volunteering, please send an e-mail to haveaheartt@yahoo.com .  We are now holding adoptions in the evenings by appointment.  Someone with our adoption committee will contact you via e-mail to set up an appointment.  If you are interested in volunteering our volunteer coordinator will contact you to explain our program and answer any of your questions.  We strongly suggest that all of our perspective adoptive parents as well as perspective volunteers wear masks upon entering the shelter.  We ask this out of respect for all of our volunteers and out of love for all of our four legged friends here at the shelter.  We thank you for your cooperation.

Due to COVID-19 we have had to put all of our fundraisers on hold.  Please check this website and our Facebook page for updates.  If you are able and willing to help during this difficult time, please make a monetary donation to HEARTT.  These donations will help us get through this period when we cannot gather in large groups for fundraisers.  No donation is too small.  Your help is greatly appreciated by the volunteers and warm hugs and kisses from our four legged friends are being sent your way.   THANK YOU!!
