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 board and care to enable their owners to enter those emergency shelters which might be unable to accept pets at this time.

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 in California 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, 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, as well as those who simply cannot afford expensive pet care.
Our public mobile dog & cat vaccine clinics offer free exams and low-cost vaccinations, microchipping, nail trims, anal gland expressions, and internal & external parasite control & preventive medication. HEART's other programs include low-cost dental care and spaying & neutering for dogs and cats.
Our comprehensive program for hundreds of pets owned by people experiencing homelessness in Orange County provides free medical care and other essential free pet care services.
Our "Safe Haven for Pets & Packs" program has opened up a crucially needed and enormous opportunity for homeless pet owners to enter emergency shelters & temporary housing with their pets, and ultimately, gain permanent housing with their loyal and beloved companions at their side.
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.
HEART is grateful for its dedicated and caring staff who work endlessly to bring our services to those in need, and it is proud of its diversified programs which have helped tremendously in reducing the number of unwanted, surrendered, neglected & abused pets, and ultimately, reduces unnecessary euthanasia.
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 have ended 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 microchipping your pet is mandatory in many cities, it is definitely the best step you can take to help ensure the return of a lost pet.
Regardless of the type of microchip, pet owners must ALWAYS keep their contact information updated and current with the microchip company. If your pet has been found and the microchip company is trying to contact you but is unable to reach you because you have moved or have an old phone number or email address, they won't be able to help in the return of your pet.
