Foster Plea 

We participate in ASNTF's (Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force) clinics when we can and in May we are participating in what ASNTF is referring to as 'the largest clinic they have ever had'!

As in past years, hart has made a donation to partially fund clinic operations and will be providing dog food. The last clinic had about 4,500 pounds of dog food transported by the 'hartmobile'.

These clinics work toward controlling the overpopulation problem!

Also, our foster team has been preparing as best they can to take dogs in. There is always a high number of dogs requiring placement as a result of the clinics.

If you or anyone you know is interested in fostering, now is the time!

Wanna help us help more doggos?

Go here!

Thanks in advance 


Hi, I'm Cassie and I'm looking for someone special who might want me.



Meet Miss Cassie!

This sweet girl has been in HART's care for 3 years. She is in DESPERATE need of someone to call her own. She has had a rough go in life and humans are sometimes really scary to her. She gives a lot of signs when she is stressed like:

  • Avoidance
  • Jumping on you slowly
  • Shaking off
  • Lip licking
  • Lifting her paw

She will go to her kennel if she is too nervous and that is ok.  We are teaching her to walk away when she is stressed.

When Cassie gets to know you, she is so sweet, cuddly and fun! She loves leashed walks (long line), exploring and enjoying wildlife. She has learned to offer to jump on things like barrels and big round bales while she surveys her kingdom. She is now comfortable exploring the pond (not too deep yet!), rocks, sand, gravel and a boat! She loves a good, all over body scratch!

She needs a home with one or two people and no little ones, on an acreage on her own or with a non- pushy dog.  She doesn't really play with other dogs as she would much rather be with her people.

She is very good in her kennel and it should be used in times when she may not be comfortable. Moving quads and tractors are still exciting to her and someone who will not yell at her or expect too much of her. She needs to eat her food in her kennel to keep other animals safe from her growls.

Cassie needs a home to recover from all that she has been through. She has been on a recovery program at K9 Misfits. The new home for Cassie should come and spend some time learning all about her to make her transition easier. 

Are you that special forever home? Please contact hart immediately so that you can meet Cassie and come out and spend some time working with her before you take her home. We want this home to be her last. She has waited too long…
