The HEART of WHAT WE DO
HEART Animal Rescue & Adoption Team Inc. was formed in 1984. Since then we have saved the lives of thousands of animals. We are an all-volunteer, non-profit, no-kill organization whose main objective is to alleviate the suffering of neglected, injured, orphaned, sick or abused animals in Western New York.
HEART believes that all animals deserve the right to live a good quality life, regardless of handicap or personality. We treat all living creatures as we ourselves would wish to be treated. We rescue, foster, and place companion animals in loving, forever homes. Each story is different and many are heart-breaking, but in every case there is a common thread; an animal that deserves a second chance at life.
HEART has a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit status. Our most recent 990 Filing is public information and can be found on www.guidestar.org.
Alleviate the financial stress associated with your pet’s unexpected medical expenses and generate funds for HEART at the same time! Simply apply for a ShelterCare Pet Insurance Program by using the above ShelterCare banner-link. Every time a completed application is generated through our website, HEART automatically receives a $25 donation. This donation is of no cost to you and provides us with essential funds.

Thank you to McClelland Small Animal
Dr. Matthew Souza, Dr. Marylisa Reynders and their entire team take such good care of our sick, wounded, and most needy babies. They are thoughtful in their care, progressive in their treatment & compassionate in every way. We are so lucky to have them as part of our team & would encourage anyone who is looking for a wonderful veterinary experience to call them.
SUCCESSFUL 2017 ADOPTIONS
Nothing tops the satisfaction we volunteers feel when happy adopters have found the perfect companion.

KIDS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Emma Larkin has a love for animals and chose HEART for her seventh grade project for her ELA Class at Springville Griffith Institute Middle School. As part of the project, Emma volunteered at the Hamburg location. She was responsible for making sure all the cats and kittens had clean water and full food bowls. Emma also socialized and played with the cats and kittens. She enjoyed volunteering but wanted to do more for the animals. After talking to her parents, it was decided she would bake paw print cookies, with the help of her Dad, to sell and raise money. Emma spent many hours in the kitchen baking and icing cookies with her Dad. She also spent time working with her Mom creating packaging, tags, and signage for the cookies. Emma volunteered at the annual Springtime in the Country show at the Erie County Fairgrounds by selling her cookies at the HEART booth. She also sold to family and friends. Emma had set a personal goal of raising $200 for HEART and she far exceeded that goal by raising a total of $450 to donate to HEART. Everyone at HEART is very thankful for Emma's imaginative ideas and help.
