We met Harley's Hope last year at a free animal clinic. They were very kind and thoughtful of our family. We have significant health issues and have not been able to get some much needed work done for our precious dog. Through this WONDERFUL organization, they covered the costs to get the work done for our beloved Rosie. We are so incredibly thankful for this organization and all they do for so many. THANK YOU!!
As a veterinarian, I have had the privilege to work with Harley's Hope in many ways including public education and services, consulting, and private owner services. The organization provides public education and outreach in animal health through lectures, clinics and seminars. Through steadfast commitment to responsible pet ownership, Harley's Hope and its leadership has provided resources for life saving procedures and preventive medical care which allows animals to stay in their caring homes. Without organizations like HH, owners who have provided good care for their pets, but have fallen on difficult times, would potentially have to decide on euthanasia or relinquishment of their animals due to financial constraints. Harley's Hope strengthens the human-animal bond in our community and the director, Cynthia Bullock, works tirelessly to find resources to be able to continue to provide assistance to the hundreds of applicants each year.
There is a reason it is called Harleys Hope because it gives people who love their pets deeply "hope" and that is so extremely important in this date and age of so many negative things happening. It also takes a lot of dedication, time and money to start an oranization like Harleys Hope, so kudos also to the people behind this organization, owners, board members, and just people caring and loving. Thank you Harleys Hope for all you do and the burdeons you help lessen.
Harley's Hope Foundation focuses on keeping pets with their people. If a pet owner finds themselves unable to provide for the needs of their longtime pet or service animal, Harley's Hope Foundation can provide assistance in the form of discounted veterinarian services and financial assistant. This is a service that is not otherwise offered in the regions Harley's Hope Foundation serves, possibly nationwide. Volunteering with Harley's Hope Foundation has proven to be a rewarding opportunity. It affords volunteers a chance to see a well-organized non-profit in action, as well as share in the successes. The organization is very open and up-front about it's mission, policies, and financial standings. As a volunteer I have been able to see how large of an impact a very small organization can make on a small budget. I can not recommend Harley's Hope Foundation enough to prospective volunteers and donors.
I live in a retirement community in South Carolina and have seen too often where older people lose their homes, or are living on food stamps, with never enough to pay all their bills each month. Their animal is their best friend, and link to the world. When something happens to them healthwise, and they can't afford to fix the problem, the sense of helplessness is overwhelming. I so enjoy reading Harley's Hope newsletter, where they tell you all the good things they accomplish by helping to provide medical care for pets of people that can't afford it. Although they can't all have happy endings, in this busy, sometimes impersonal and uncaring world, the successes can give you hope.
Harley's Hope gives hope to those who can't provide medical care for their pets from the disabled to the senior citizens. Keeping animals with their owners and knowing they are in a place of love, is the ultimate goal for this organization.
HHF is an organization that has been a continual resource for our animal population and their human companions since its inception. While relatively new, it's been available 24x7 and continues to expand its efforts to ensure a happy resolution wherever/whenver possible. The Bullock Family "walks the talk" in their daily lives - being available 24x7, constantly devoting time and new ideas for fundraising efforts, making sure relationships with the veterinary community and its patients are positive. HHF is well worth this recognition!
While Harley's Hope is a relatively new organization, they have accomplished so much this past year to provide needed medical services to animals - especially service animals whose owners depend on them for their own health and safety. Many senior citizens living on a fixed income don't always have the funds available for emergency medical care for themselves, much less for their animals. The number of abandoned animals these days seems to be on the increase. It is important that good animal owners can receive needed care for their animals without having to make a choice of rent or food vs the animal. This is especially true during these tight financial times, but is also true any time. Harley's Hope works to ensure the animals receive the medical attention required while keeping animal and owner together... a service well-received in the veterinary community as well as the general public. Everyone benefits.
This organization helps so many families overcome financial situations arising from vet bills that would normally force the loss of their pet. Great work!
The biggest thing about Harley's Hope is that the goal is to help animals and keep them in their current home, rather than forcing the owners give up their beloved animal just because they can't afford the care they want to give them. Harley's Hope helps these owners keep the animal they love and give it the medical attention it needs. Harley Hope founder is always trying to do what she can to help as many animals and people as they can. She works really hard to get the money and resources so she can turn around and help others. She's always brain storming new ides to educate owners and the help them keep their animals instead of giving them up.
