In 2006, Sher Polvinale and her late husband, Joe, created a senior pet sanctuary in their home. Sanctuary residents are dogs and cats who have lost their families and homes through no fault of their own. Because of their advanced age and various medical conditions, they have little chance of being adopted.
House with a Heart is not a foster home or rescue group. Once a dog becomes a resident, it has a loving home for life. Our Director, Sher devotes herself full-time to caring for the pets and maintaining and improving the Sanctuary.
HWAH is supported by volunteers from Montgomery County and the surrounding Metro areas that walk, bathe, and care for the residents, as well as clean and maintain the house and two-acre property. As of 2014, 55 dedicated volunteers had joined the HWAH family. [x]
