HART for Animals has been awarded the 2020 William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award!

Comptroller Peter Franchot says “This final round of 2020 honorees showcase the best and brightest spirits of their communities. They stepped up to provide critical resources and create pathways for vulnerable neighbors, friends and families facing life and death struggles…They recognized the needs of their communities, took action and continue to inspire the rest of us to face and address our challenges.” The press release goes on to say “HART for Animals received the nod for Garrett County.

HART provides grants to low-income families for spay/neuter surgery and other costly medical expenses. During the pandemic, they offered free pet food and straw to make sure fur and feather companions were fed and warm, while keeping their families free from worry and added financial stress.”

We are honored to be a recipient of the 2020 William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award, and wake up every day inspired to keep saving animals and providing for our community however we can.
