Humane Animal Resource Team

McIntosh County, Georgia

Welcome To HART (Humane Animal Resource Team, Inc.) 

HART (Humane Animal Resource Team, Inc.) of McIntosh County, Georgia, is a small, grassroots, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to community spay/neuter assistance, humane education in responsible pet guardianship, and placing stray and abandoned animals in good homes. HART is the only animal advocacy group based in McIntosh County actively involved in rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing homeless companion animals. HART was founded in 1994 by Dr. Hannah Tostensen and the late Grover C. Wood with this mission: “To create a humane and effective solution for the stray and abandoned companion animals of McIntosh County.” HART’s vision was: “To create a unique public/private partnership among HART and the governments of McIntosh County and the City of Darien, with the goals of building an animal shelter and creating a humane animal control program at the grassroots level.” 

Hart has met these goals and transitioned MCAS from a high-kill pound to a highly-humane shelter in just thirteen months! To maintain this momentum, we need your support.
