How we roll - hart medical

hart has been rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming dogs since 2004. That is 17 years of self-less dedication from our team of volunteers to give 1800+ dogs a chance at a healthy, happy and safe life.

One piece of the rehabilitate puzzle for our hart dogs is the medical care that they receive.

We are advocates for the health and well-being of each hart rescue dog. We give a voice to those that cannot physically speak and place their quality of life as our priority.

hart preventative animal health practices and protocols are reviewed by veterinary medical experts to ensure the best practices and accepted standards are implemented.


At minimum each hart dog undergoes:

-a full head-to-toe physical examination when they come into care called an Intake Assessment

-dogs under 1 year of age are given 3 rounds of DACPP, dogs over one year are given 1 round of DACPP

-dogs over 6 months are given Rabies (the Rabies vaccination becomes the responsibility of adoptive parents if a pup is adopted out prior to 6 months)

-all dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption

-all dogs are microchipped

-all dogs are given 2 rounds of dewormer

-all dogs are given additional parasite control

-each dog is placed in a medical isolation for 24 hours upon arrival to hart

-each dog is place in a minimum 2 week quarantine upon arrival to hart

-Vaccination Parties are held every two weeks where additional physical assessments are performed

-dogs in care for prolonged periods undergo physical assessments every three months

hart treats all health issues that we are aware of while a dog is in care. We do not rush medical clearance for adoption. In fact, we will not clear a dog for adoption until any known medical issues are resolved or in the case of a chronic issue, the dog is stable. In those cases we utilize a modified adoption contract to ensure that the adoptive parent is well aware of any medical issues that they will be taking on when they adopt.

We have an established volunteer medical team and professional veterinary partners who demonstrated the best in compassionate care. We work diligently to be the bridge between the medical world and the foster parent.
