Hardeman Adoptable Animals (HAA) is a volunteer-based organization that saves dogs from the Hardeman County Animal Control kill facility. The organization places these rescued dogs in a safe shelter that is located in the county landfill, but operated by the HAA volunteers. Upon arrival at the shelter, the dogs are evaluated, cared for by a veterinarian if necessary, and placed on the list of available/adoptable dogs. All dogs taken in are strays, owner surrenders or breeder throw aways. HAA protects the dogs from euthanasia and adopts them out to appropriate homes or delivers them to rescue groups who can place them in a forever home.

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!
