WHO WE ARE:
The Hart County Humane Society works in conjunction with the Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter to end the need to euthanize healthy animals due to lack of space or time. This takes a village of volunteers! In fact, we are an all volunteer, all donation, 501(c) 3 non-profit animal rescue organization. We receive no funding from taxes or other sources.
We passionately work every day to end the euthanizing of adoptable shelter animals. Animals who are turned in to the Animal Shelter but are not adopted or rescued by other organizations come to us. We then work with our amazing local veterinarians to ensure the animal is healthy, provide care if they are not, microchip, and spay/neuter the animal in preparation for their new family.
WHO WE ARE NOT:
We are not a shelter facility with hired staff. We are not Animal Control and have no legal jusisdiction or training to pick up stray animals. We receive no funding from any governmental agencies.
Animal Control is available by calling your local law enforcement agency. In the City of Hartwell, contact Hartwell Police at 706-376-3111. In Hart County, call the Hart County Sheriff's Department at 706-376-3114.
If you have a pet you need to rehome, please contact the Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter at 870 Bear Creek Road in Lavonia or call them at 706-356-5363.
