SAVING THE LIVES OF ANIMALS…THE HEART OF WHAT WE DO

HEART Animal Rescue and Adoption Team, Inc. was formed in 1984. Since then we have saved the lives of thousands of animals.

HEART is 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 has a 501(C)(3) not-for-profit status. As a nonprofit organization HEART receives no government funding and operates solely on donations and money raised within the community. All donations are tax deductible.

HEART is the advocate for the "underdog" whether feline or canine. We believe 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.

HEART rescues, fosters, and places companion animals up for adoption. 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 and a permanent, loving home.

HEART does not have a shelter so our rescued animals are placed in volunteer foster homes, where the love and healing process begins. Then they are transferred to our Adoption Centers. Our goal is to find safe, loving, permanent homes for all our animals.

We love all animals at HEART but unfortunately we cannot take every animal into our organization. How do we decide who gets saved? We look at those that need us most! We never think who would get adopted the fastest. Instead, we always consider who needs us more. We receive hundreds of requests for help each year, many involving animals in dire need of our help. We have limited resources so we must prioritize care so that the neediest animals receive our attention first.

All animals rescued by HEART are seen by veterinarians who work directly with our organization. HEART resorts to euthanasia only in cases of extreme suffering or when a contagious fatal disease is present. We rely on the recommendation of a veterinarian in such cases.
