Animals

Fairfax Station, Virginia 22039-7261
We need your financial support now more than ever. A 501(c)(3) non profit organization, the Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) uses our precious funds efficiently. In our last reporting period, 98.1% of our revenue went directly to helping dogs and cats! Only 1.9% was spent on administrative and fundraising expenses.

As HART helps a growing number of dogs and cats, our funding needs grow too. Your contribution, small or large, can mean the difference between life and death for a pet in need. Gifts of time and/or money help HART continue to fight the terrible odds some of these pets face.

Together, we've been able to save thousands and thousands of lives. Thanks so much for caring. Please help us help thousands more, one life at a time!
