Humane Animal Rescue and Trapping Team, Inc. (aka, HARTT) is a volunteer-based Arizona nonprofit organization that humanely captures lost family pets, homeless dogs, and homeless cats who are severely injured. Typically, these animals cannot easily be leashed, picked up or captured through ordinary means. Bringing these animals to safety often requires extraordinary patience, specialized strategy, skill and equipment, as well as time and resources.
Our volunteers do this work because they have a passion for saving at-risk animals. They work on these cases after their normal work hours, when they are not caring for their own families, and often in lieu of more “relaxing” activities. Most of our volunteers operate in Maricopa County, however we also serve surrounding areas in Arizona based on volunteer availability. We also train and network with other humane trappers in other counties within Arizona. Because of our organization’s specialized experience, we have even consulted on cases across the United States and as far away as Canada, Singapore and Poland.
HARTT is supported primarily by donations from the public; we have no government contracts and receive no government funds.
