What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Healing Hearts Animal Rescue & Refuge

Healing Hearts is located in Cave Creek where we rescue, rehabilitate, and hopefully rehome equines and large breed animals in need.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Although our goal is to re-home our rescued animals, our 54-Acre Refuge allows abused, neglected or abandoned animals live out their natural life in a safe and loving environment should adoption not be possible. Healing Hearts allows our Cows and Pigs the desired space to live out their lives in Southern Arizona.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of Healing Hearts is to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the State of Arizona and to serve those animals who are the victims of abuse. Healing Hearts will be the resource our community needs to solve pet problems and concerns, and help with re-homing pets if necessary. Ultimately, Healing Hearts will serve as a successful model for shelters, humane organizations, and communities nationwide as programming and community involvement minimize the need (and reliance on Healing Hearts) for traditional animal rescue services.\r\n\r\nHealing Heart's ultimate goal is to change the relationships between people and animals. Healing Hearts spends over 80% of its resources providing for abandoned, neglected and abused animals. Our focus goes beyond simply educating; instead, it is our mission to empower people to have successful relationships with pets. Our intent is to inspire the community, to create the resources, educational opportunities and location to allow community members to get involved in ending animal abuse and overpopulation.

Identify and contact Arizona county, city, and state government agencies that deal with animal welfare along with private non-profit animal welfare agencies to establish mutually beneficial relationships to provide housing, placement and rehabilitation of abused, neglected and abandoned animals throughout Arizona.

Our long-term financial stability has been established through our donor base, fundraising events, grant funders, planned giving programs and earned income through adoptions. By developing our Refuge facility, relationships with state-wide animal welfare organizations, humane education and our new partnership with Arizona Humane Society in Phoenix, Healing Hearts will be a key player in the advocacy of stopping animal overpopulation, abuse, abandonment and neglect.

We are very proud to announce that in late fall of 2013, Healing Hearts partnered with the Arizona Humane Society in Phoenix to provide an additional adoption site for the equine in our care. This partnership was essential to have a presence in the Maricopa Country (Phoenix) area, the most highly populated county in Arizona. In the past we have run a Mobile Surgical Clinic and have spayed/neutered over 10,000 dogs and cats, attributing to reducing Arizona's homeless pets. Our greatest hope for the next year is to double, if not triple our adoption rates with our new Satellite Facility.
