HAA is so happy to say YOU DID IT! Thank you to all our supporters who gave to our Matching Donor Challenge. We met this goal tonight at 10:03.
Your faith in us and your overwhelming generosity proves we can do this-there WILL be a new shelter for Hardeman Dogs!

MATCHING DONOR CHALLENGE UPDATE!

7 DAYS IN-YOU HAVE RAISED $3757 TOWARD OUR $5000 GOAL!
7 days to go-we can do this! Thanks to everyone who can donate, share, and help with our first challenge to help the dogs of Hardeman County.      We appreciate you!

Matching Donor Challenge

Hardeman Adoptable Animals has an anonymous donor that will give us a $5000.00 gift toward our building fund, provided it is matched within two weeks. But we need your help to make it happen! Please help spread the word. This would give us 15% of the funds needed and enough to put a down payment on a building to house the dogs! We hope to have more matching donation challenges every month and a great place for our dogs by the fall.

Upcoming Fundraisers

Saturday, June 10th, we have a few different fundraisers going on. We have the pet massage class at noon and then the pet sprays class at 2pm. Then, that evening we have a shrimp dinner. We still have the shoe fundraiser going on and you could bring shoes to any of these events!

Need Help Getting Your Pet Spayed or Neutered?

We are happy to announce a new program to help Hardeman County residents receive FREE spay or neuter appointments for your pets, thanks to the assistance of our rescue partner Minnesota Paws.

Any person who volunteers at the HAA shelter for at least 20 hours can have his/her dog or cat spayed or neutered for free. (This does not include vaccines or other expenses.)

You will be cleaning indoor and outdoor kennels, washing bowls, doing laundry, walking dogs, and other duties as asked.

There are many benefits to having your pets spayed or neutered. The chances of cancer decrease; they are less prone to show aggression; and they live longer. And the biggest reason is because hundreds of thousands of animals are euthanized each year due to overcrowded shelters because pet owners don’t have their pets neutered.

To have your pet “fixed” for free you must:

> Schedule volunteer hours in advance. HAA is open 365 days a year. Daily operating hours vary slightly from day to day, but are usually 9AM to 1PM.

> If you want to take advantage of this opportunity but are unable to work at the shelter, you can have someone do these hours on your behalf. These instances must be agreed upon prior to hours being counted.

> Anyone under 16 years old MUST be accompanied by an adult. Anyone under 18 must have a parent or guardian complete a Release of Liability form on their behalf.

> Release forms and names of people volunteering on behalf of a pet owner must be on file (in writing) before hours can be logged

For more information please TEXT (do not call) Charla Cooper at 731-234-4421 or Maia Broyles at 731-609-7552, or stop by the shelter Monday through Saturday 9:00 – noon.

The shelter is located inside the Hardeman County Landfill on Walton Road.

Raise the ROOF!

We are officially kicking off our RAISE THE ROOF campaign to ask for donations to build our new shelter!

We’ll keep you posted on our progress on this page, so be sure to check back for updates.

Since we need to raise $125,000 for an awesome place for the dogs, we’re asking you to consider donating $125. If you can’t donate that much, that’s okay! How about $12.50? Or even $1.25. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL.

If you would like to make a donation, go directly to https://goo.gl/yRrkMc or visit PayPal’s website and send money to haa.shelter@yahoo.com.

Remember to note BUILDING FUND on your donation so it goes in the right place.

Thanks! Let’s RAISE THE ROOF!
