Reviews for Heaven on Earth Society for Animals Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Heaven on Earth truly is a special place. They do incredible work helping homeless cats that have run out of options. I have been a volunteer since 2009, I have adopted my little girl cat from them, and I continue to fundraise and vouch for them whenever I can. The staff and volunteers are friendly and passionate; the facility is warm and inviting. The successes of lives saved is an inspiration and keeps me coming back!

I found Heaven on Earth Society for Animals online from a posting asking for volunteers to help socialize cats. The no-kill, cage-fee environment and the mission to improve the quality of life for homeless animals was just what I was looking for. The staff and volunteers at Heaven on Earth are the most caring and loving group I have ever met. After working a gift wrapping fundraiser, I had the opportunity to sit down with current board members and was eventually asked to join the board. I was deeply flattered and felt so proud to be able to assist this tremendous organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The best was having a successful 10 year anniversary fundraiser. The money raised helped further the mission to improve the quality of life for homeless pets.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Put down roots. Heaven on Earth really needs a property to call their own. They would be able accomplish so much more!

I became a volunteer with Heaven on Earth Society for Animals in summer of 2010. I immediately felt right at home just as the cats do in the 5 room house that serves as a no-kill, cage-free sanctuary. I instantly became as involved as I could helping out the staff and the cats. I earned the name “worker bee” from my fellow board members. Heaven on Earth deeply appreciated my time and effort and eventually asked me to join their board of directors. I couldn’t be happier serving such a caring, compassionate organization. Heaven on Earth has many programs including spay/neuter transport and adoption events, and they also provide a permanent home for cats often overlooked for adoption due to special needs.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was so proud when we “remodeled” the front room of the sanctuary. I demolished a floor, scrubbed walls, and added a fresh coat of paint with a whole group of volunteers. Watching the cats explore their new, clean room was the best!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Grow the organization financially. Heaven on Earth has the right people with the right hearts and mind. It just needs the funds to make their rescue dreams a reality.

These folks work so hard for their kitties! The top priority is helping cats, who would probably otherwise die in shelter, get another chance for a loving home. The sanctuary Heaven on Earth provides is a safe, clean, healthy, loving environment for cats of all ages and needs.

Heaven on Earth works with many of our local pet stores as a way of showing off kitties in need of homes- when you go to a PetSmart in our neighborhood- those kitties in the adoption center are from the sanctuary and ready for a loving, forever home. All the cats are spayed, neutered, and chipped- ready to go!! Heaven on Earth even delivers and helps the new kitty family get ready for their new member.

This cat rescue is the BEST! They have such a large selection of different cats and kitties of all ages and breeds. Their adoption specialists will take the time to find the right cat that fits your personality and make sure you have a new best friend for life! Great place to add to your family if you are looking to do so. The people who work there are so friendly and kind! It really is Heaven on Earth!

They have the most amazing sanctuary. It is clean, and well run, and the kitties there are so well taken care of. I have been there several times, and each time, I am impressed with the people and the pride they take in representing such a marvelous place. The money they raise is always very well spent, providing the best of care to their charges. There is no doubt that the kitties, friendly or shy, perfectly healthy or with special needs, young or old, all benefit from Heaven on Earth. They have very successful adoptions events, and many of their kitties do find forever homes. I hope some day, there will be no need for such a place (as Los Angeles will have solved their over-population of cats), but until that glorious day, Heaven on Earth is there for the unwanted and unloved cats.

I volunteer at Heaven on Earth and I absolutely love it. They are so sweet to the kitties and the work they do in Los Angeles is so important. They take in countless homeless and shelter cats that might not have ever been adopted and provide a safe place for them to recover and become ready to meet their new families. They help bring in the best kinds of people looking for a new pet! The volunteers are there to keep the place clean and most importantly, to socialize with the cats. Heaven on Earth really is a wonderful community with heart and love at the core!

I adopted from them my most loving kitty. When I soon discovered that I was very allergic to her, they personally found her a new great family. Heaven on Earth is unique in its vast array of services for cats, dogs and people. They even let me know how she
Was doing and they visited her new home to make certain all was good.

I knew Heaven on Earth when they were still in a little house in Van Nuys. I used to literally take truckloads of donations over whenever I could. I always wanted to volunteer but I worked too many hours and then ended up moving out of state. I have kept track of them online though and I am so thrilled at how they have flourished. Absolutely a wonderful organization doing awesome work from the very beginning!
