Our 2017 Numbers!

We are excited to announce our numbers for 2017. Total intake of animals this year was at an all-time low at just 375. In years past we have had around 484 animals each year enter our shelter. This reduction is thanks to our community support, education efforts, low cost spay-neuter options, Trap Neuter Release programs and of course our hard-working team that goes above and beyond every day for our communty. 

H.A.R.T is a no kill, open intake animal rescue and animal control for the Hoopeston community. Together we can make 2018 an even better year. Happy New Year!
