Other Ways to Support HART

Sponsor a Cat

Maybe you love cats but can't have one of your own? Or perhaps you just want to help a cat in need? The HART sponsorship program gives you the chance to support the shelter in a unique way, by forming a relationship with a special cat who is living at the shelter. Visit our Sponsorship page for program details.

Membership Campaign

Become a member of HART and help to keep the shelter cats healthier and more comfortable. This has been a very valuable program and you can read more here on how much HART has benefited from it. Start your membership now in our store or contact Sharon Lewis for more information.

Planned Giving


If you or someone you know would like to make a gift of equities, real estate, life insurance, retirement funds, charitable annuity or other planned giving, please contact Joann Wallace. Making a bequest in a will is a wonderful way to assure support for HART in the future. Please consult your attorney for the appropriate legal documents needed to make a bequest.


Help to Raise Funds


Printer and Toner Cartridge Redemption


Instead of tossing your empty printer and toner cartridges in the trash and hurting the environment, bring them to HART and we will turn them into cash for the shelter.  ALL brands are accepted, but the original manufacturer's label must still be on the cartridge and it must not have been previously recycled. Cartridges of all sizes are welcome. Please contact Sharon Lewis with questions.


Clynk Bottle Redemption


HART will turn your Maine returnable bottles and cans into cash for the shelter. Pick up a CLYNK bag at the shelter or from one of our off-site events, fill the bag with returnables, and drop off at your local Hannaford Supermarket. We also accept returnables not in CLYNK bags dropped off at the shelter - we can take care of the rest.
