Members of Animal Rescue Kare of Hart County work tirelessly to improve animal welfare and spread the word about humane animal care. Below, you can find information about the ARK Pet Foster Program, the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Project, the impact of individual members aiding animals - ARK Members in Action, and the data from our Spay-Neuter-Rabies voucher distribution events.
In 2017, ARK received a $5000 Foster Care Grant from the Maddie's Fund organization of Pleasanton, CA to initiate our pet foster program. #ThanksToMaddie!
We received 2 additional $5000 Grants in 2018 - one to partner with CASOKY (Community Action of Southern Kentucky) to provide no-cost spay-neuter vouchers to low-income pet owners, and the other to develop a youth ambassador program for our foster/adoption efforts. #ThanksToMaddie!
The TWO MAUDS Foundation awarded ARK a $7,000 grant to implement a Trap-Neuter-Return Project, last fall. The project was completed in 2019. This project helped 151 animals, with spaying or neutering, rabies shots, and routine medical care, before they were returned to their outdoor homes. The result - healthier animals that won’t contribute to the cat overpopulation problem. Learn more -News in the ARK.

ARK Save Rate = (Total Intake - Died or Lost in Care - Euthanasia excluding Owner Requested Euthanasia) / (Total Intake - Owner Requested Euthanasia) 2018 = 68/71 = 96%
ARK Members in Action
Many ARK members work outside of the foster program to help stray, abandoned, or surrendered animals with medical needs and rehoming. We have an active Facebook presence, with a community of animals lovers willing to help find lost animals, help find new homes for pets, and share information about pet concerns. (ARK for Hart on Facebook) Read about the work of one of our most active animal lovers here.
