HARK is a no-kill animal shelter. No euthanasia is ever performed because an animal has been in the shelter “too long”.

HARK does offer the service of euthanasia for owners whose animal has severe health problems and it is deemed there is no longer quality of life. For those visiting our site for this reason, please feel free to call us with any of your questions. All of our staff are pet owners and understand how difficult and stressful this decision can be.

If a critically ill or mortally wounded dog or cat is brought to HARK our shelter staff will make all reasonable effort to contact the owner prior to proceeding with euthanasia.
