As the year comes to an end, there are many exciting news to be shared with visitors to this page:
We are completing the Adoption Wing of the HART Animal Center - this is the place where homeless animals will stay while waiting to meet their permanent families. It will be completed before the end of the year and ready for occupancy at the start of 2016.
The Patricia H. Kirwan Center has been in operation for nearly two years, with many people visiting the Bredel Veterinary Clinic, the Bed 'n Bark Inn, and MuttWorks. Visitors, clients, and staff continue to grow an involved animal community, where everyone plays an important part - and the connecting link are the animals.
We have been able to find loving homes for 123 animals, which were adopted from the Center in the past two years.
In addition, we have rescued and transported 6,800 animals since 2003, thanks to the close cooperation with the Garrett County Animal Shelter, our staff, volunteers, and the many rescue groups that work with us.
The Center represents a true community facility in our county - and a haven for the many animals that come to its doors. HART is to the animals a place where everybody knows their name... just like the old Cheers song!
