- During the last five years, the Garrett County Shelter has averaged 1,240 incoming animals per year. This was reduced in 2012 in part due to the spay/neuter work of the HART Clinic.
Of these, 40% were dogs and 60% were cats. Typically, only 9% are adopted, 40% are euthanized, 7% are returned to their owners, and 44% are rescued and transported out of the county to reputable adoption organizations by HART.
- HART typically rescues about 600 animals each year.
- By September 2012, the HART Spay/Neuter Clinic had operated on 3000 animals and significantly reduced the number of animals brought to the Garrett County Shelter.
- Ground was broken for the HART Animal Adoption Center in 2011 and the foundation poured in 2012. The building structure will be going up in late fall 2012 through spring 2013.
- HART's major fund-raising events are the Memorial Day weekend K-9s, Tunes, and Brews event held in McHenry, MD, and a New Year's Eve Celebration and Fur Ball Casino and Auction at Dutch's Restaurant in Oakland, MD.
