About Us

Welcome to HEART! Heaven and Earth Animal Rescue Team is a nonprofit, all volunteer, limited admission pet rescue organization funded by private donations. We are committed to reducing the number of homeless and unwanted companion animals through education programs, spay and neuter programs, and the responsible re-homing of homeless and unwanted dogs and cats.

We are a limited admissions rescue, meaning we can only take in as many animals as our foster homes can safely and responsibly care for. We do not euthanize animals to make room for more. We simply stop taking in new animals until we have room. Each homeless companion animal will remain in our care until he or she finds a new home.

Our goal is to find loving and permanent homes for these animals and to match them with homes that are looking for that special pet, and will make them a member of the family. The health and welfare of the animals that come to us is paramount. All animals receive a medical evaluation, fully vaccinated, if old enough are spayed and neutered before adoption, and any health problems are taken care of immediately.

Because we want to ensure that all of the animals in our care go to good homes, we may ask to conduct a home visit. This allows us to decide if the animal is a proper match for your home. We reserve the right to turn down applicants for pets if we feel that the home environment is not in the animal’s best interest.
