Heartland Animal Rescue Team in need of donations

Heartland Animal Rescue Team is in need of monetary donations again this year.

It was one year ago this month the plea for donations went out. The response was overwhelming and the donations carried HART through the majority of the year.

Unfortunately, HART was hit hard this year with canine influenza, which resulted in closing the shelter for five weeks this summer. With the closing and caring for sick dogs, the budget took a severe hit, a news release stated. Having no income for those five weeks was devastating to HART, according to Donna Wambeke, HART executive director.

For those who are able, a donation at this time would be greatly appreciated, Wambeke said. The unwanted, homeless, sick animals of the community depend on caring folks in the community, she added, and caring for these animals is a community effort.

Send checks to HART, 15494 Dellwood Drive Brainerd, MN, 56401, donate online or at the shelter.
