Our mission is to serve the underserved --
the abandoned, orphaned, abused, injured, senior and special needs dogs which have nowhere else to turn and to provide the love and care they never had until a forever home is found.
Founded in January 2004, From the Heart Rescue (FTH) is dedicated to caring for the hurt and frightened animal victims of accident, disease, cruelty and neglect, as well as senior and disabled animals, by providing the life-saving surgeries, medications and special care they need which other organizations are unable or unwilling to give.
There are many rescues and shelters which take readily adoptable pets; but so many times, animals are rejected because they may need extra care before they become adoptable, they are disabled, or they are seniors. That’s where From The Heart comes in …
Founded in 2004, From the Heart Rescue is a rehabilitative, life-enhancing rescue dedicated to caring for the hurt and frightened victims of accident, disease, cruelty and neglect. We provide life-saving surgeries, medications and special care which other organizations are unable or unwilling to give. In fact, over 80% of the dogs entering our rescue are medically or physically challenged, disabled and senior -- all of which are considered by other rescues to be "unadoptable."
From the Heart focuses on dogs, no matter the breed or species, giving each individual attention in a loving foster home while recovering physically or emotionally from their previous lives. Every day, our animals — those once abandoned, left to die on the streets, abused, neglected, sick or injured — learn the lessons of kindness and care. Our volunteers and fosters work diligently to make sure each one is given the respect and love it so richly deserves.
While we may not place hundreds or thousands of animals a year, each one of the animals with which From the Heart Rescue works is ensured of a loving, thoroughly screened forever home, where they will get the second chance they deserve.
It does not come cheaply to us — either to our hearts or our wallets. Each animal tugs at our heartstrings each minute of every day, as we nurse the scared, shy, injured or sick animals, working toward the day they will be wonderful, healthy creatures.
While From the Heart Rescue has won many local and national awards for its work, there is nothing more rewarding to us than watching that once abused, injured or senior dog we have fought so hard to save, go off to its new loving home.
These second-hand dogs are so grateful for the chance they have been given, they wish to repay that kindness with their love — given freely and unconditionally to their new family.
