Mission

MISSION STATEMENT: 
The organization operates as a foster-care/Rescue facility for companion animals who would otherwise be euthanized by local animal shelters and adopt the animals into appropriate permanent homes. The organization principally accepts animals which may not be readily adoptable because of poor socialization or aggression, and the organization’s volunteers work with the animals regarding socialization skills, food/animal aggression and related issues. The organization also participates in community programs that promote spay and neuter and conducts humane education “seminars,” teaching school-aged children how to properly care for animals. These activities are conducted by the organization’s volunteers and foster-care families. The organization intends to become more involved with spay/neuter programs and to offer spay/neuter assistance and other veterinary services to low income families as funding for those activities becomes available. 
Our main goal is to limit the number of available animals in our kill shelters and show them the value and trust they contain. With the help of fundraisers and donations we can push forward and "SAVE ANIMALS ONE PAW AT A TIME".

Notes from the nonprofit

Fuzzy Hearts works tirelessly to help animals all over the state. We welcome fosters and transporters. We request applications before any fosters, adopters or transporters can be approved. We survive on donations and fundraisers solely.

Our programs

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

Humane Education

Humane Education Seminars would be to provide each pet owner with assistance in specifics for keeping and maintaining their animal. It could be anything from kennel training, puppy training to working with senior animals in your care. By helping them learn the techniques to combat bad behavior or simple unknown behavior could mean a family keeping their pet instead of bring it to a shelter or rescue.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to help lower the euthanziation rate in Arkansas Shelters by pulling in animals. We aim to teach spay/neuter to our community and all who will listen. We look forward to helping our veterans with companion animals as well as continue to provide our pet food pantry to our county.

We plan to continue to reach out to shelters to assist them as well as put our name out there to assist as many people as we can.

The support of the Animal community. We plan fundraisers through out the year to help us acheive our goals.

We have progressed rapidly this year. We have altered numerous dogs which has helped lower the pet population (small steps), we have assisted people with pet food who could not afford it otherwise. We have recently assisted in beginning reassuring paws which is a program designed to find shelter/rescue animals to train as companion animals for our veterans.
