ABOUT HEART

We started our organization in 1984 out of a profound desire to alleviate the suffering of neglected, injured, orphaned, sick or abused animals in Western New York. Since then we have saved the lives of thousands of animals.

HEART has always managed to stay true to our "no-kill" philosophy. Our mission remains to respect all animals and to help each animal gain its rightful place in the world, regardless of handicap or personality. Working collaboratively with local shelters and other rescue organizations we’ve made considerable progress towards a shared vision to end euthanasia of healthy and adoptable companion animals.

If you give of your life to help animals you know the pain of seeing how many more there are, and the pain of realizing you can't save them all. And you know the joy that comes from helping and saving the ones you can. We've come a long way but there are still so many little faces looking for help and safety to not keep going.

If you adopted a pet from us, you helped us help another homeless animal. If you referred someone to HEART, you helped. If you made a monetary donation or if you fostered a homeless animal, you helped. There is a special place in our hearts for all of you that have enabled HEART to continue our mission for over 25 years.


HEART RESCUE STORIES

  Introducing Lionel, HEART's newest adoptee
We took Lionel out of a local shelter in early March. By Lionel's behavior, we are guessing that he's had a terrifying life so far. He is scared of everything! Thanks to our volunteer, Kelsey & her Mom for opening their home to him. Rest easy now Sweet Lionel
  PLEASE HELP CHEDDAR HEAL

Cheddar is a one year old Pitbull mix who was hit by a car in early May then taken to a local shelter. From there, Cheddar was taken into a foster home through HEART Animal Rescue & Adoption Team. There was extensive damage done to his leg from being hit by the car so shortly after arriving at HEART he was taken to a veterinary orthopedic specialist. Many radiographs were taken to verify that Cheddar did not have any broken bones. What he does have is a sub-luxated (dislocated) carpus (wrist). This will require a costly surgery to repair his leg. The radiographs, surgery & post-op care will cost over $3,000.

Cheddar is a sweet, fun loving boy who's smile is utterly contagious. He loves everyone he has meet, including cats & other dogs. Cheddar is kennel trained & house broken. He will be neutered & current on vaccinations before being adopted. He will be up for adoption in about 2 1/2 months.

HEART HAPPY ENDINGS
PARKA

Parka is a pit bull that was picked up by Orchard Park Dog Control as a stray and turned over to HEART in February. It was evident Parka was used as a breeder dog and when she was all used up she was tossed out.
Parka was spayed, vaccinated and tested for heartworm and is now living the good life in her new home. She and her new best friend Mira (pictured with Parka) are inseparable these days.
