About Homeless Animal Rescue Team

Homeless Animal Rescue Team (H.A.R.T) is a voluntary non for profit making, dog, cat and other animal rescue group founded in Cork in 2012.

Due to the increasing problem of pets being abandoned in Ireland, we decided to form H.A.R.T in November of 2012 with the view of helping these homeless pets & to also relieve the pressure on other Animal Rescue services in and around Cork.

All the animals that come into the care Homeless Animal Rescue Team are placed in foster homes as we do not have any  shelter or kennels and can only help if we have a suitable foster home free.

If you find an animal that’s in need of our help, please get in touch and keep the the animal safe for a couple of days so that we find a suitable space for it.

All adult animals are vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered prior to adoption. If adopting a puppy or kitten the new owners have to agree to neuter them when they come of age approx 6 months old.  Pups are fully vaccinated and micro-chipped.

We do not receive significant funding from the state and therefore rely solely on fundraising help, ideas and generosity of the general public.
