We would like to introduce ourselves to you. We are HART - The Homeless Animal Rescue Team. We have been in existence since 1996. Even though our name says "rescue" we do not go out and rescue animals from the community; instead we provide temporary shelter (which are foster homes), medical treatment, and sterilization for homeless, stray, and abandoned cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies in New Mexico for animals that are accepted into our program.
HART is a non-kill group, which places all the animals in its program at some time. We do not euthanize to make room for new animals. We sometimes have animals up to a year before we're able to find them a permanent home. We rely upon foster homes heavily for these needy animals.
All our animals are checked for health problems, given the necessary shots, and sterilized to prevent further over-population in New Mexico. Because of the high number of unwanted pets due to un-sterilized animals, HART is in need of donations and volunteers to help us carry out our commitments to the community.
