Comments:H.A.R.T. Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c3) organization and state approved rescue that rescues dogs and puppies and helps find them loving homes. The foundation was started in June 2002 and we make sure that the dogs and puppies are up-to-date on their vaccines, spayed or neutered, making sure they are healthy and then we find loving and responsible homes for them.We are in the process of preparing for a fundraiser/adopt-a-thon and hoping that you can assist us by helping us to spread the word about it. We would greatly appreciate it if you could place it on your calendar of events, newspaper, announce it on radio or TV, etc.With the economy being as it is and people being out of work there are numerous dogs needing homes and this has us searching for funds to take care of the needs more so now than ever before. Families are finding dogs that are being dumped, and are unable to keep them, therefore they contact us wanting to know what to do. Our kennels are always full, as soon as one dog is placed another is waiting for a kennel so we can begin the search for their new family. The needs for food, housing, medical, kennel repairs, gravel, etc. are all GREAT.We are planning an Adopt-A-Thon, bake sale, and also a yard sale with numerous items to try and help raise money for some of these needs. If someone has items (new or used) that they would like to donate for the yard sale or any dog related items (collars, leashes, bowls, etc.) please contact us.
