HART stands for Homeless Animal Rescue Team.
All HART animals receive:
Top notch veterinarian care
All currently needed vaccinations
Specialized treatment and surgeries as needed
24 Pet Watch Microchips
Spay / neuter of all animals
HART members share the same goal to save, spay / neuter, love, and find them forever homes
HART is a 100% volunteer, non-profit 501c3 charity organization with no paid staff of any kind. All donations are tax deductible and will directly benefit the animals.
HART’s mission is to improve the lives of animals in Western Maryland by:
Rescuing animals and transporting them to areas where they will have a better chance of being adopted.
Reducing pet overpopulation through low-cost spaying and neutering.
Building a humane and friendly animal center, where adoptable animals will never have to be euthanized.
Providing information and education to owners about responsible pet ownership, obedience training and rehabilitation of rescues to reduce the number of relinquished and abandoned animals.
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.
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.”
Greetings from Deep Creek Lake! If these photos do not smell like summer to you then it’s time to get out and enjoy your own slice of paradise here at DCL! For Mother’s Day, we paddled to Trader’s Coffee House – my request– for a café au lait and protein wrap. One of my favorite summertime stops by boat or paddleboard. Griffin enjoyed his first 2015 slice of sweet watermelon just this week and as you can see it made him very happy! Jensen is experiencing one of his first ice cream cones and is still deciding if the brain freeze is really worth it!
There is a change coming to our county building permit requirements as of July 1. Although the sprinkler system ordinance has been around for quite a while, Garrett County was able to work around its enforcement until now. Sprinkler systems will now be required in all new single family dwellings. If you are planning to build in the next year or so, you can apply for your building permit in June to avoid the sprinkler system requirement. A building permit is good for one year. The county will host a seminar on June 3rd from 3:00-5:00 in Room 205 of the Continuing Education Building at Garrett College. Presentations will be made by two gentlemen in the fire protection industry and the county will also review the permitting and inspection process relating to the installation of residential sprinkler systems. Anyone is welcome to attend.
The Spiker Team’s Featured Listings are two beautiful waterfront homes, neither of which have ever been rented. They are both equally pristine and ready to occupy. Close to the water with nice views and a single dock slip. For additional info/photos/tour: http://mrislistings.mris.com/DE.asp?ID=63044257276.
