We are renovating the shelter! Join us in this exciting change and help us help the animals! Click HERE for further info and links to photos, naming opportunities and updates!


Starting today and going through the end of August, all cats and kittens will be adopted for only $50! HART has an overabundance of cats and we would like to find them loving homes before the big move back to the renovated shelter. We have many kittens and adults that are very affectionate and ready to find someone to love. All HART cats are feline leukemia tested, have shots, are dewormed, given a flea/tick preventative, micro chipped and spay/neutered (unless they are too young, in which case an additional $50 deposit is required and later refunded). All adoptable cats are currently located at the old high school farm on highway 25. Come and adopt a new cat companion today!


 Save the date!!!

Operation Renovation will be completed soon and HART would like you to save the date for the big reveal!!!!

Open house will be held Sunday September 7th from 2-4 pm. Details to follow.
The results of the renovation are unbelievable. Come and take a look. September 7th.
