If owners cared for their animals like Harmony New Beginnings cares for the animals people throw away, there would be no need. Couldn't ask for people to love and care more than they do. Every animal that comes through Harmony's care, is given the very best to allow them to improve and thrive, and feel the love of a human's care. I can't express how awesome these people are. They go above and beyond for every living creature.

Thank you for taking care of those without a voice of their own.

Best rescue facility ever!!!
I have seen animals that have been severely abused and neglected brought to this facility and the care they have received has brought them back to a healthy and happy, trusting state and they can be placed in a forever home. God bless these people. They truly care about the animals and are very good at what they do.

Harmony New Beginnings is the most responsible and productive rescue that I have ever visited or known about. They are constantly upgrading the rescue (often at their own expense) to provide safe, warm and proper housing for each variety of animal rescued. They engage the community in education and caring for the animals. They provide veterinarian care, activity and a loving home for all animals rescued. The animals are not only rescued but restored to health and a positive lifestyle. This rescue has the best reputation of any I have heard. They have promoted such a positive attitude toward rescues in our area!
I would contact them (before any other agency ) if I knew of an endangered animal or was looking for a pet.

I am writing as someone who had no experience with a rescue before. With that said, a few months ago I adopted a dog there. I found Joy to have an extremely passionate, kind heart towards animals as well as being someone who goes the extra mile for each animal in her care. She provided documents and medical records for us and discussed the known history of the animal I adopted. She also talked with us sharing info about his specific personality and help with how to make his transition go smoothly. Wonderful family and great rescue!

Harmony New Beginnings Animal Rescue is rune by some of the most compassionate people I have known in my lifetime. They recover their rescues. I guess the best statement I can make about HNBAR would be my desire as an animal in need to wind up under their care. I pray they can keep up the fantastic care.

I am honored to have an opportunity to write a review for Harmony New Beginnings Animal Rescue. They are the example that all rescues should follow.
The animals that are fortunate to get to HNBAR get amazing care. They are evaluated, given veterinarian care, socialization,appropriate housing and food. Love lots of love, did I mention love? I have visited the rescue and it is very clean and well maintained.
I rescued a kitten from HNBAR. My kitten arrived with the necessary initial vet care. She was spayed, chipped, had her first shots and had been wormed and treated for fleas.
I was impressed with the education and follow up I recieved. My veterinarian was very impressed with the condition of the kitten and that the rescue had sent a reminder about the next vaccines being due.
I cannot donate a lot but if I do I recieve a reciept. The level of professionalism and operating practices of this rescue is exemplary.

I believe the work this rescue does is outstanding for animals in need and compared to a lot of organizations in this space that I've worked with, they are the most dedicated, most diligent and the easiest to work with. They truly care about the animals and work hard to make sure animals are cared for and restored to good health. They are also very diligent about finding the right foster homes and forever homes for each animal based on needs and temperament. I loved what this rescue was doing so much that I offered to be a Board Member.

I can't say enough good things about Harmony New Beginnings Animal Rescue. I spoke with the lady who runs it in regards to a situation with my daughter where her horse was ripped away from her, when the two people who were caring for her horse called off their wedding and went seperate ways. We were given a week to find a place to board him. Unfortunately we were unsuccessful in the time period and her horse was sent across the state to live with another family because the person living on the property wanted a clean break from anything that reminded him of his ex. Heart broken my daughter stopped riding and refused to even touch another horse. The lady who runs Harmony New Beginnings Animal Rescue was so gracious to extend and open invitation to meet with my daughter and have her come love on the rescue horses. Her words truly came from a place of a deep love for animals. She believes in educating the future generations as how to properly care for animals. I can't say enough good things about this rescue. Very compassionate people who truly love what they do.

I have been following Harmony New Beginnings Animal Rescue for a few years now. I am constantly impressed with their strong commitment to these abused animals. I have followed rescues in which I was certain the outcome was going to be tragic only to witness miraculous recoveries! This was accomplished by the sheer devotion, dedication and determination of everyone at this amazing sanctuary.

I can't say enough about this rescue. I found them when helping find homes for three senior horses in the 'kill pen' at a WA auction. I asked Joy to help find a WA rescue, and when no one had room, Harmony New Beginnings stepped up (even though they were barely open, having just completed the 501C3 filing and approval process). Since then I have seen them come to the rescue of horses, donkeys, dogs, cats, goats! I haven't visited (I'm in AZ) but I hope to one of these days.
