We are excited to announce our numbers for 2017. Total intake of animals this year was at an all-time low at just 386. In years past we have had around 484 animals each year enter our shelter. This reduction is thanks to our community support, education efforts, low cost spay-neuter options, Trap Neuter Release programs and of course our hard-working team that goes above and beyond every day for our communty. H.A.R.T is a no kill, open intake animal rescue and animal control for the Hoopeston community. Together we can make 2018 an even better year. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  H.A.R.T. is Raising the Roof!  Please help us raise money to make the necessary changes to our old shelter building so that we can continue to care for homeless animals in a better way. We desperately need to replace our leaky roof. We are also going to expand our walls for the comfort of our dogs and cats to include catios and larger dog kennels. We have a builder, some donated supplies but now we need the money to accomplish our plans. Our goal is to raise $50,000. If you have been to our shelter you know we are very cramped. Our original plan was to acquire our shelter building and in a strange turn of events it is all falling into place. Our plans to build a big modern shelter is too much for our tiny group and we need the space now, so financially this makes more sense. Please help us. H.A.R.T. is a registered 501 c 3 NFP - All gifts are tax deductible. To donate our address is 901 West Main Street, Hoopeston, IL. 60942, for paypal use our email address If you are a Thrivent member we are a recipient. H.A.R.T. now has 6 acres for sale in Hoopeston on Route 9, and it might be the last piece of property left for sale in the TIF District.
