Our Mission & Goals

Our mission

HART's mission is to improve the conditon of animals in Western Maryland by:

  1. Saving the lives of adoptable animals through rescue and transport
  2. Reducing pet overpopulation through low-cost spaying and neutering
  3. Building a humane and friendly animal adoption center
  4. Educating the community on responsible pet ownership

To achieve our mission, HART has raised $2.75 million dollars to build and equip the HART Animal Center and to provide ancillary services that will ensure the continued operation of the Center by creating a source of revenue and a permanent endowment. The Center also is creating job opportunities and training county residents interested in animal care, rehabilitation, and rescue and support Garrett County’s efforts to enforce the laws against animal cruelty and neglect.

And vision...

HART's Animal Adoption Center has become a model for compassionate animal rescue and community involvement in saving the lives of companion animals. HART has brought about a community where the famous words of Mahatma Gandhi inspire the efforts of everyone involved in making the center a reality:

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man.”
