Hartz is committed to supporting no-kill shelters and other community organizations that care for and protect pets until they find their forever homes. Through product donations and volunteer events, we are able to extend our support and make an impact on the health and well-being of companion animals while they are in the guardianship of foster families, sanctuaries and shelters.


We are excited to partner with Rescue Bank® to donate our products and distribute to shelters across the United States and in 2019, we are happy to extend our outreach efforts to a partnership with Rescue Rebuild®. This will give us the opportunity to rehabilitate shelters in need of repairs and renovations in order to improve the lives of pets waiting for adoption and the volunteers who care for them.
