The staff at HEART wishes everyone good health and a reminder to keep a positive attitude during these very challenging times. We can all look forward to a better, united, and peaceful world which will develop from knowing that we are all working for the same cause and are in this together.
Stay healthy and safe.
Donations are very much needed and appreciated for those higher-risk pets entering our Safe Haven Program. Due to the domino effect of COVID-19, many pets of the homeless require immediate fostering to enable their owners to enter those emergency shelters which are unable to accept pets at this time. Every dollar counts ... please help save a life by making a contribution on our "Donations & Fundraisers" page. Thank you for your compassion and generous support.
OVER-POPULATION of pets is the #1 KILLER of pets.
Help us eliminate needless abandonment and euthanasia.
Practice responsible pet guardianship ...
SAVE A LIFE ... SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PET!
~ PLEASE HELP SUPPORT OUR MISSION
BY MAKING A DONATION TODAY ~
Thank you for caring and for your generous support.
HEART is a Non-Profit 501 (c)(3) organization (FIN 45-2483357) dedicated to helping protect pets and people. Our team has been extremely successful in improving the quality of life for companion animals and wildlife. Providing a means to enhance animal safety & welfare and improve habitats & other environmental situations has resulted in our continued achievements towards our ongoing mission to save lives.
Our team travels to many communities providing free and low-cost veterinary care, pet socialization and behavioral rehabilitation, domestic & wild animal rescue, adoption assistance, and emergency disaster relief.
We promote responsible pet ownership through education and inspire involvement in animal welfare related issues through increasing public awareness which serves as the foundation to stop animal cruelty, suffering, and unnecessary euthanasia.
Our many years of partnership with multiple cities, counties, and private organizations and individuals, have enabled us to reach out to thousands of people, helping serve the needs of homeless pet owners and others living in impoverished communities.
Our services include pet training & rehabilitation, spaying, neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, internal & external parasite control, dental care, treatment of wounds & lacerations, treatment of infections, and other important pet health care which is essential for pets to live long and healthy lives. This reduces the number of unwanted pets, surrendered pets, neglected & abused pets, and ultimately, reduces unnecessary euthanasia.
Our work heavily focuses on providing pets which are owned by people experiencing homelessness in Orange County with vital health care and socialization/training services and much needed pet food and supplies.
HEART's unique and exciting "Safe Haven for Pets & Packs" program provides temporary care for these pets while their human companions are actively seeking employment, attending their jobs, or are undergoing surgeries or any type of treatment related to their health. We also provide Emotional Support Animal certification for pets meeting our requirements. This removes a barrier which often prevents a pet owner from being able to acquire housing with their beloved companions.
We depend on the support of caring people to help put an end to needless suffering and to make a positive difference in the lives of thousands of pets and families. Please help by making a contribution today. Thank you.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The picture shown above is only one of millions of pictures of homeless pets.
Fixing the growing problem of overpopulation which leads to disease, neglect, unwanted pets, abandonment, and euthanasia, starts at home.
Please be a responsible pet guardian and have your pet fixed.
Please visit our "Services" page for our latest rescues ready for adoption. They are eager to meet you and your family, so please contact us to arrange a visit. Adoption applications are available by calling or emailing us.
Kiara is one of the millions of pets that end up in shelters each year. She was scheduled to be euthanized in July 2015 with no hope for adoption until her rescue by HEART.
Kiara's story now has a happy ending ... or rather a wonderful new beginning!
Kiara loves new challenges. Her willingness, eagerness, and bravery to try new activities has opened up a new world for her. She has excelled beyond our expectations with her achievements in agility and search & rescue courses. Kiara
is truly an amazing dog with a beautiful soul whose lives to play and whose primary goal is to serve and please, which is exactly what she does 24/7.
Microchips save lives. They play an essential role in successfully reuniting lost pets with their families.
Although it is mandatory In many cities to have your pet microchipped, it is definitely the best step you can take to help ensure the return of a lost pet.
No matter how it is stated or how many times it is said, "microchipping provides pet owners with the best chance possible of achieving a safe return of a lost pet".
