About The Rescue

Harter’s Hospice Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue organization. Our mission is to save elderly dogs from being abandoned and dumped in kill shelters and find them a home to live out the rest of their years comfortably. Whether a short amount of time or they thrive with love, our foster homes provide the love and comfort for our dogs. We are a foster based rescue and are successful through the support and donations of the community.

Hospice in this case doesn’t necessarily mean they are dying dogs. They are elder or have a disability and need a gentle, understanding home to lay their paws for the rest of their time on earth. Sometimes they begin to thrive when given a loving chance to. Sometimes they just need care and comfort and to leave this earth knowing what love is. That is our goal.
