FAQS about HART
How long has HART been running?
HART was founded in 1995 by a group of devoted, dog-loving North Hastings citizens to serve the Bancroft, Ontario catchment.
Do you help cats?
HART is a dog rescue and unfortunately we do not rescue cats. We suggest you contact the closest OSPCA to your location.
Can HART help me with my vet bills?
HART receives no government funding, depends on private donations and the funds we raise ourselves, and because this money pays for the dogs in our care, we CANNOT help with the vet bills of others.

Yes, we are! Our number is #83739 0749 RR0001
How can I get involved?
You can foster, volunteer, donate, the list goes on. Check out our How You Can Help page!
Do you have a shelter where I can come and visit?
HART has no formal shelter. We rely solely on a province-wide network of volunteer foster home to care for the dogs we rescue until they are ready for adoption.
