What is the mission of your organization?
HART’s mission is to save the lives of as many unwanted or abandoned dogs and cats as possible, spay/neuter and provide required veterinary care then find “forever homes” for these beloved companion animals. We take a two-fold approach to this goal.

1. We attempt to reduce the over-population of animals by spaying or neutering all animals prior to finding their forever home.

2.We educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering so there are less animals out there that need to be rescued. This is becoming more of a focus for us as we grow and continue to save more animals.

We provide any required medical care, surgeries, vaccinations, etc. HART continues to take a higher percentage of animals that are injured or are sick over other rescues.

Which social causes (up to 3 choices) does your agency address through its programming? * ·       (1) Animals

·       (6) Environment

Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
HART was formed in 2004 and recognized as a 501c3 by the State of Ohio in June, 2005. Since HART was formed, we have saved the lives of almost 10,000 local dogs & cats! That’s quite an accomplishment for a group of hardworking volunteers. We are entirely run and led by volunteers. We have no paid staff at all. And we have no physical shelter. We utilize a group of foster homes to save these animals. With no overhead, this allows us to use every cent that is awarded to us in grants or earned by our volunteers toward the cost of saving these animals.

We are well qualified to implement funding of this type as we know the importance of reducing the number of homeless animals all too well. We face this problem every day; at every shelter in Southwestern Ohio. HART maintains detailed financial information and can supply accurate and up to date histories on all animals we rescue and the associated medical costs.

Does your organization have volunteer opportunities available for students? * Yes, Grades 9 – 12
List possible volunteer opportunities -or- a link to where they can be found on the web. HART Volunteers can do as much or as little as they like. Everything from holding puppies or kittens at our bi-monthly adoption events, making follow-up calls to see how recently adopted animals are doing or working any of our fundraisers.
