Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our mission is to bring awareness and empathy towards the animal kingdom. We recognize that animals have little to no voice in our world and we are committed to being a major contributor to change that. Animals are often seen as "possessions, tools and objects of abuse. Whether they are a personal pet or being raised to slaughter, they have awareness, feel pain and respond to how they are treated. No living being should be treated unkindly or have pain inflicted upon them for ANY REASON!

Our programs

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

UpCycle With Purpose

Turning what most would consider "junk" or "trash" into something of value and use. For example: We turn our empty grain bags into grocery/shopping bags rather than throwing them away and adding to the land refuse. We create fencing, chicken coops, sheds from old pallets. Musical instruments and art from old cans, glass, drums, grills etc.

Population(s) Served

Allow the animals to heal through their touch, interaction and presence.

Charting impact

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

At Hearts For Animals Inc, we aim to be a beacon of light for the animals by introducing humans to their world and experiencing them through the eyes of a child. We address health issues, stress, victims of abuse and bullying, anxiety, cancer, high blood pressure, PTSD through animal interactions.

Our animals serve as therapists and willingly share their hearts with our visitors.

We offer group and family sessions to visit our animals at the sanctuary and experience first hand the beauty and wonder of healing through compassion and love.

We offer educational programs and workshops and retreats with outside partners who integrate the principles of their classes through the interactions with our animals. Programs such as Linking awareness with Loesje Jacobs, and Connection Medicine with Penny Lloyd, dvm

We have recently acquired an estate property in Hauula, Hawaii with several rooms to offer our participants during the workshops, retreats and classes. This has been a huge blessing and shall allow us to increase our activities ten fold. This brings us revenue which provides resources to care for and feed the animals.

We have several testimonies from participants in our individual interactions and classes of cancer remissions, stress relief, soldiers who are able to feel relief from their anxiety due to PTSD.

Students from the Universities who claim they are able to concentrate and study with less stress after spending time with our animals.

Healing sessions for both animals and people have occured during our workshops in Linking Awareness and Connection Medicine.
