Fuzzy Hearts Rescue

aka Fuzzy Hearts Animal Rescue

Fairfield Bay, AR


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.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

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.

What indicates our progress is lower euthanization rates in the shelters we help as well as less shelter intake by us assisting people via education and our pet food pantry.

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.
