Why do you volunteer with hart?

What experience in hart made you realize you were making a difference?
Getting to see the foster parents with their foster dogs at the adoption events! It's so awesome to see the dogs' progression from new rescues to happy, healthy dogs enjoying the good life. 

What advice would you have for someone who is considering volunteering?
Stop considering, and do it! There are so many ways to get involved, even if you don't have much time to spare. Volunteering and fostering with hart has definitely been the most rewarding experience of my life.
