Micro-chipping your pet can make all the difference in the world!

Micro-chipping your pet can make all the difference in the world!

We have our own scanner and check every dog we take in. Unfortunately, in 3 years we have only found 2 dogs with a chip. That’s only TWO out of over two THOUSAND dogs that have passed through our facility. Fortunately for those 2 and their families they were reunited. If we had yours we would have returned it to you also … if it had a chip. Spay ’em, neuter ’em & chip ’em!

Adopt a Shelter Month on Live @ 9 ft. Ceasar

Adopt a Shelter Month on Live @ 9 ft. Ceasar

This is Ceasar, a two-year-old Black Labrador Retriever. Caesar has been patiently waiting for a family to adopt him since he arrived at the shelter in December.

Ceasar is medium-sized at about 40 pounds, he’s a very gentle dog, who gets along well with others. He’s really hoping someone special will see him today and want to take him home!

Transport of HAA Dogs in the News

Bark & Ride Transport rescues animals from Hardeman Adoptable Animals. We are unbelievable fortunate to have them helping us save the lives of innocent animals.

Rescued dogs stop in Mahomet Saturday

Volunteers from six states associated with Bark & Ride Transport saved 24 dogs from being put down in Bolivar, Tenn. Saturday. The dogs found refuge at rescue shelters or foster homes.

Sisters Ginna Moore, Shelley Porter and Erin Fulk started their volunteer work in dog rescue five years ago. Read more from the Mahomet Daily.

Heartworm Positive Shelter Dogs

The shelter currently has 11 heartworm positive dogs (including Candace pictured). At the beginning of the summer there were 3 and now there are 11, not counting the 2 that just finished treatment. Our jr volunteers have worked hard all summer trying to raise money to start a treatment on these dogs. Conley and Cowboy were the first to be treated and cost $1,200. We almost lost Cowboy. They raised about $3000 over the summer and paid for those 2. They are ready to start on more. Each dog can cost anywhere from $500 – $1,000 to treat based on their size. With your help we can continue to move forward with treating the dogs there and the ones that will come into the shelter in the future.

Help us meet our $3,000 goal on Razzio by Saturday, August 31! WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Cricket Update

WE HAVE BIG NEWS

Shortly after we posted about Cricket the other day, she was ADOPTED! This is such wonderful news to all the volunteers at Hardeman Adoptable Animals. From the day we found Cricket, she improved tremendously from our care and the care of foster parent. This is WHY we do what we do every day at the shelter.

Sweet Cricket

Sweet Cricket

Cricket #7224

Cricket came to Hardeman Adoptable Animals with horrible skin issues. We found her like most of the other in the high kill facility on the hill on June 14. She was waiting to be euthanized. We most certainly could not have let that happen to this sweet little girl … just look at that face!

Cricket is as sweet as pie and doing great her new foster home. She gets along great with other dogs and cats, loves to play fetch, and is housebroken. To meet and greet her, you will need to make an appointment. She is a mixed breed approximately 25 lbs. and 1-year-old. Her skin issues are looking much, MUCH better! She is heartworm negative, spayed and up-to-date on her shots.

Come meet this sweet little girl and fall in love with her just like we did!
