Program Description:

With the completion of our Quarantine Center, our biggest 'physical' hurdle has been resolved.   Photos of the Center can be viewed on our website at  www.webs.com/newsevents.htm(http://www.webs.com/newsevents.htm) .   Now, at this time, our on-going concern is raising and covering the operating costs to care for our charges -- this includes funding for feed, hay, bedding, farrier, veterinary and dental care on a daily basis.     Our annual Expenditures, per our Financial Statement for 2009 was $68,632.89

Program Long-Term Success:

Success, both long and short term, is measured in our ability to continue to take in equines in need, rehabilitate them and adopt them out to good, permanent homes.   Our goal is to continue to do so, and be a resource that our local equine community can turn to.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

In 2008, HHER’s first year, 21 horses were taken in from a variety of sources - neglect/abandonment situations, and Feed Lots and Kill Pens.    In 2009, Helping Hearts took in 25 equines, placed 13 into new homes and humanely euthanized 7 due to infirmities of age or disease.     2010 - We directly took in 31 horses, adopted out 30 and euth'd 2 due to medical conditions.  We maintain an average population of 14 horses under our direct care.  2011- To date, September 4, 2011 -- we've taken in 14 equines and had 1 born after his mother's arrival.   15 have been placed.   In February 2011, HHER (together with a private party) worked to rounding-up and rehab 15 Thoroughbred horsers and one mule which were suffering from starvation and neglect on a NJ farm.   HHER networked with sister-rescues in the tri-state area to enable the rescues to intake the equines for purposes of rehab and placement.      In Addition to the horses we take in directly, we have also assist in the placement of dozens a month.  As of November 4, 2009, Helping Hearts initiated what we refer to as the “Camelot Effort”.  In Sept./Oct. of ‘09, we began cataloging the horses purchased for the Feed Lot at the weekly Camelot Sales. These horses would normally ship to slaughter once the proprietor has a truck load.   Since November 4, 2009, due to our networking of these horses regionally and nationally, no horse landing in the Camelot Feed Lot has shipped. By August of 2011, over 2300 horses/donkeys/mules have been given fresh starts with new owners and lives directly thru our efforts. Not one horse has shipped to Canada or Mexico from this facilty since October, 2009.   In February 2009, the Co-founder and President of HHER was awarded the 2008 ESDCTA Sportsmanship Award for her work in rescue: "The Sportsmanship Award was given this year to Lisa M. Post, in recognition of all that she does to rescue equines (and other animals in need) and rehabilitate them so that they can go onto new homes and careers, where possible. She has made her Helping Hearst Equine Rescue a wonderful organization that does so much to make all of us aware as horse owners, that we are responsible for our animals as they age, get injured, and that we owe them for all they have given to us."
