At Dog Friendly Deep Creek, we’ve always had a special place in our hearts for HART for Animals, Inc, a local non-profit dedicated to saving the lives of homeless pets in Garrett County. Since 2003 when HART first opened it’s doors, 5,000 animals have been rescued from euthanasia by transporting them from the County’s animal shelters to more populous locations where they have a greater chance of adoption.
We are very pleased to announce that HART recently opened a brand-new facility called the HART Animal Center, and the grand opening is coming up! The beautiful new Animal Center was 10 years in the making and has been a goal of the organization since HART was first founded. The 12,000 sq ft facility opened in March, 2014, and was created to save and protect rescued animals. The Adoption Wing is the core of the Center, and to support this part of the facility, HART operates a full-service veterinary practice, a pet hotel, grooming services, retail store, and a dog training operation. Profits from these services will support the adoption area, alongside fundraising and grants.
The expansive adoption wing has space for 60 dogs, 30 puppies, 40 cats, and many litters of ok 0 kittens. Being the dog and animal lovers that we are, we are so excited to welcome HART’s new Animal Center to our area. If you’ll be staying with us in May, please stop by HART Animal Center’s Open House on May 3, 2014 from noon to 5pm! Tour the new center, check out the Bed ‘n Bark Inn and MUTTWorks, the pet grooming center. There will also be a petting zoo, a pet adoption area, fun kids activities, and food!
While we have a large amount of dog friendly rental properties in Deep Creek, please check out HART Animal Center if you find yourself in a vacation rental that doesn’t allow pets, or if you’re not going to be participating in dog-friendly activities while on vacation. Your dog will love the Bed ‘n Bark Inn!
