Welcome To Hearts For Animals, Inc.
We are a 501c3 non-profit organization promoting a progressive no-kill philosophy. We have created an animal sanctuary with our primary focus on enlightenment to the beauty of relating to animals on their level. Our unique program introduces guests to the herd in their natural daily environment instead of asking the herd to conform to the human agenda. ***The animals lead the sessions and we are only here to experience, learn and enjoy the amazing interaction. Some of our animals have been born and raised on the property and several are rescues from various backgrounds and situations.
We offer mentoring programs for kids in our communities providing a safe place to explore the beauty of a giving and receiving the unconditional love and respect through the animals. They will learn how to care for the animals, communicate compassionately while experiencing the gift of taking on and enjoying responsibilities.
“Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace” Albert Schweitzer.
Sessions with the “Healing Herd” for people addressing grief, illness, emotional distress, anxiety, fear and other challenges in life. Although we do not set a fee for these sessions, we gratefully accept donations or love offerings. Give what you are able to give, be it financial support, volunteering time, food for the animals, vet fees, farrier fees etc.
It is our belief that,euthanasia should not be a form of population control. Animals deserve better than to be sentenced to death because of irresponsible owners, lack of space, not enough time, or lack of resources whatever the EXCUSE may be (none that we consider valid)! Our position opposes slaughtering animals, horses, wolves, burros, elephants, kangaroos,….. the list goes on.
If any animal is to be slaughtered for any reason, we advocate organic, sustainable and true free range farming practices with the Temple Grandin way of taking their lives, humanely, quietly and without excessive anxiety and fear.
***All animals that guests interact with have been socialized through our family style up bringing with the King of the Herd Ola’pa
and 2nd in command Chippewa who keep the rest of the herd centered, focused and respectful of the humans.
