Heart of Alabama. Save. Rescue. Adopt.
If you are familiar with the Florence/Killen, area of North Alabama, you may be familiar with HASRA. Likewise, you know the good work they do. If not, let me take a minute to tell you about this grand organization. You may not see the facility when looking for it as it sits off highway 72 (Lee Highway) hidden behind Arx Mortis. However, it is ideally located with lots of outside area for the animals they rescue.
A Non-Profit Organization – HASRA
In brief, HASRA is a 501c(3) corporation established in 2009 by Debbie Rappuhn. HASRA stands for Heart of Alabama. Save. Rescue. Adopt. Animals are rescued from high kill shelters by HASRA together with aiding communities with strays. Their first action with a stray is to find its owner if there is one. Unfortunately, many strays are abandoned pets.
Educate the Public
Therefore, public awareness is needed to bring attention to the fact that animal shelters are often overwhelmed. For example:
- Pet overpopulation in the United States is a serious problem
- Unwanted pets are often abandoned
- Pets are often not spayed or neutered and produce more unwanted offspring’s
Helping Animal Shelters
Therefore, HSRA is committed to supporting the animal shelters in North Alabama. They are a No-Kill organization dedicated to the protection of animals that have been abandoned, neglected, abused, relinquished or found homeless. Since its inception, HASRA has saved and found homes for 4000 animals. This type of organization relies both on volunteers and the generosity of donors. Can You Help?
