Today’s PetMeds Spotlight is on Have a Heart Animal Rescue and Adoption in Birmingham, AL, a small non-profit rescue group that functions solely on foster homes and donations. They do not have a facility. All of their animals are in foster homes. Appointments are arranged for potential adopters to meet the fosters. Have a Heart utilizes a virtual kennel where they can courtesy post animals. The animals in the rescue are posted on the website.
Have a Heart is mainly a kitten/cat rescue, but they work with dogs as well. Recently, they have helped many animals affected by the tornadoes in Alabama. Have a Heart’s president, with the support of other local rescuers and animal lovers created the Animals Lost & Found in Alabama from the Tornadoes Facebook page to help reunite animals with their families. They raised funds to help pay for animals to be treated by vets in the affected areas and delivered pet supplies to affected areas as well. Recently they pulled 3 dogs that had been in Animal Control since the tornadoes that were never reunited with their owners. They are working on finding them homes and providing vet care.
Another dog project they are working on is Rally for Ruby. A sad story of a neglected and possibly abused tornado survivor. https://www.facebook.com/RallyForRuby
HAH is helping the individual rescuer raise funds for the vet care of Ruby. Currently Have a Heart’s biggest projects are the microchip program they have established in hopes of helping reunite more pets in a future disaster and helping several tornado survivors find new homes and receive vet care. They have 15 tornado survivor cats/kittens in the rescue, 5 tornado dogs in addition to the other cats/kittens in the rescue available for adoption. They are a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.
