Reviews for Heaven On Earth Society For Animals Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an amazing non-profit, no-kill shelter for cats here in the Los Angeles area. I recently adopted an adult cat and an amazing little kitten which is bringing my two young boys and me such great joy and pleasure. The team from Heaven on Earth brought the cats, requisite paperwork, and an initial food supply to my house. They also stayed for over an hour to ensure the cats transitioned well and that I had as much helpful information possible to start the journey of cat adoption. This is an extremely professional, caring, and consistent non-profit that makes a healthy difference in our world.

This is the sweetest most caring non profit for animals I've ever known. The staff is devoted to saving and caring for cats. They are always on call and ready at the drop of a dime to go help. The company is run with utmost dedication and love.

Love the attention to detail to the cats, their care and making sure that they not only go to a home, but the right home.

This is a very well organized group with many wonderful volunteers that have a real passion to help animals. True medical care is used when necessary. The facilities are kept tidy, the cats are kept calm with lovely music. There is so much love shared with these special animals.

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

get them more funding.

I was looking for a way to help animals, but could not handle volunteering for a standard shelter because I cannot handle euthanasia or even being close to it. Then I found Heaven on Earth. No kill and no cage???? I could not believe it and they would let me volunteer?! I was very excited and I am so glad I have found them. I love knowing that I am helping their cause when I'm volunteering, fundraising and fostering. These cats learn to be social and make great foster cats that enjoy getting to know my kitties at home. This group is truly made of angels.

I would love to see this organization expanded. I'm sure they would consider it if they had the funds.

I am so glad to have Heaven on Earth in my life! I started volunteering with them about a year ago, and I don't think I'll ever want to stop. The other volunteers are caring and welcoming, the sanctuary staff is knowledgable and dedicated, and the board members work hard every day to create change and growth within the rescue and beyond. (Plus, the cats are the best! Hanging out with them is extremely rewarding.)

Talking to and working with potential adopters is a real treat; I have seen many cats go to loving homes since I started volunteering. I am learning every day, and am sharing what I learn with friends, family, and my community. I even ended up with an extra kitty along the way! ;)

Any cat OR person with Heaven on Earth in their lives should consider themselves very lucky!

Heaven on Earth is a great organization that is not only a haven for homeless kitties but provides an enjoyable experience for people, too! It's a welcoming, clean, friendly environment where the cats are clearly well cared for and attended to. When I walked through, there were many volunteers spending time with the kitties and giving them love. There's even great artwork on the walls! I like the positive vibe and am looking forward to going back and possibly volunteering as well.

Heaven on Earth is a wonderful organization. The bulk of my interactions were with Pam and Becky and Patty. They were in my opinion great people with an even greater love from the heart for that which they spend their lives doing. Making the world a better place one kitty at a time!! I have a 9.5 year old Golden Retriever who had lost her brother just 6 months prior. She and I would go to pet smart where she always wanted to go see the kitty's. This continued for several weeks, as I pondered the idea of reintroducing a kitty into our lives, to help fill that which was missing. As we made another trip to pet smart on this occasion we met Pam. I explained to her the particulars of my life at present, Pam suggested that Pistachio would be a good fit. Pistachio is a little kitty who has been through a rough patch her entire life, and was a little bit reserved but sweet and loving. On our follow up meet and greet Patty and Pam were helpful in coordinating everyone into the room to see how the interactions would unfold. As we proceeded Pam and Becky were very flexible and willing to meet the demands of my ever changing schedule. Pam delivered Pistachio to her new home at which point my dog walked up and kissed me on the cheek. (TRUE STORY). Since then Pistachio is very happy, she loves the dog and enjoys getting on the top of her and doing the kitty mothering routine, for as long as the dog can take it.
I am grateful and appreciative that Pistachio is now a part of my family, she was truly Heaven sent!!
Thank you to all my friends at Heaven on Earth!!

Heaven and Earth clearly has a loving staff. They show genuine care for thier animals. In addition, they know each animals story and times, heartbreak. They were thorough in the interviews. Though, some might find this a bit much, we found it to be in the best interest of future pets. We love our cat Baffi, he is sheer joy and he is the best alarm clock each morning.

Hard to say. They display such great care.

Heaven on Earth does a wonderful job caring for special needs and homeless cats. I visited the shelter several years ago and was very impressed with the facilities and the caring compassion of the staff. I'm sure that has only gotten better with the opening of Perry's Place.

Can't think of anything right now.

Everyone wants to see a cat find his or her forever home, but knowing that the cats that don't get adopted and call the sanctuary their home are safe, well looked after and loved - makes all the difference to me. It's also the kitties that have medical issues or are seniors and have a lesser chance of being adopted that find their forever home with Heaven on Earth.

I've been a long time volunteer at the sanctuary and whether it's cleaning carriers, doing paperwork or spending time with the kitties, I know it all makes a difference.

A place where cats can call home and receive love and care from the staff and volunteers as they work to find forever homes.. An amazing amount of love and care goes into every cat that comes into Perry's Place, and it is very satisfying to see the cats that come under their care flourish and blossom into healthy, adoptable beings ready for the right person to come along.

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

They are already looking to expand and save even more cats, so I feel there is not any changes that I could think of.
