How We Make a Difference

We are dedicated to rescuing dogs left homeless for any reason, dogs in shelters that are at high risk of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation, dogs given up by their owners due to difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect. 

Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinarian care and treatment, and stay in our care while waiting for their forever homes. We assist dogs in distress regardless of age, breed, or ease of placement, to the extent our finances allow.

We are a small 501(c)(3) licensed animal rescue run by a group of dedicated volunteers.  We work to ensure that dogs who have been surrendered, neglected, or abused find the love and care they are due. We welcome the opportunity to work with you as an adopter, foster, or volunteer.

Volunteering

Volunteering is a lot of fun and its also very rewarding. We need help caring for the dogs at our kennel, helping work events, someone to help transport the dogs to and from the vet, and someone who wants to just sit and love on our dogs. The list of ways that you can help is endless! To become a volunteer, email us at volunteer.hcar@gmail.com.
