Rating: 5 stars  

I started volunteering for Heaven On Earth over a year ago. They are extremely dedicated to their cause and every thing that this organization does is for the animals. They are constantly looking for new ways to be productive. They are a small organization but growing quickly.

Heaven on Earth is a wonderful organization that helps so many cats get a chance at "the good life" in a home. I am a volunteer and a donor that drives multiple hours a few times a year to bring supplies and socialize the cats. The care each cat receives is fantastic. They have also extended their facilities to a couple of cats that I personally knew who were not doing well in a shelter environment. Every time I see these cats, I am grateful that they have a loving place to stay while waiting for their forever home. I cannot say enough about how great this organization is! The people, the facility- everything is first rate!!!

I'm proud to be a part of this Wonderful organization! You couldn't ask for a better group of people who love animals. They work tirelessly to show these kitties who have been given up on that there is a future full of love and happiness out there and how much they deserve to find it:)

The compassion and caring the staff and volunteers at Heaven On Earth give the kitties in their care is second to none. In addition, they also provide an invaluable service with helping to refer people to low cost spay/neuter/vaccine outlets for tame and feral cats as well as assisting with transporting cats to those venues for people who are unable to do so. They provide a perfect blueprint that all non-profits should take note of and follow. I thank Pam and the crew for the help and support they have given me as a fellow rescuer.

Heaven on Earth is a God-send. They always are there for the kitties in need, and their facility is top-notch. The cats there are the luckiest homeless cats because the staff and volunteers really care showing them great love, attention and meeting their every need. It's truly one of the best non-profits I've ever experienced.

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.

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.

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

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!
