After an extremely stressful divorce I found myself unable to care for my ponies who were full brother & sister. Happy Endings Animal Rescue Sanctuary came to my rescue. My ponies were loved by me, however, had been abused in my previous situation and CC came to our rescue and offered a safe and loving home for them. I don't know what I would have done without this wonderful program coming to our aide.
Thank you to CC and all the volunteers at Happy Endings Animal Rescue Sanctuary.

Happy Endings Animal Rescue Sanctuary has been a Blessing to me and my ponies. They were taken in and loved when I could no longer provide for them. I have helped whenever I can with fund raising for Happy Endings and I pray that they will be able to provide a loving home to all the rescued animals and find loving homes for them to live out their lives. Thank you C.C.

I would like to personally thank C.C. Wellman and H.E.A.R.S. for their wonderful work, support and loving care. After a long, continuing, emotionally and financially draining divorce, I found myself unable to care for my two ponies. What a blessing C.C. was (and still is) to come to our rescue and take them into her program. These two ponies were born one year apart and have never been separated. I had them since they were one and two years old. When I acquired the ponies, neither had ever been handled. When they were first brought home, we had to put their halters on with lead ropes before they even got out of the trailer. With patience I was able to earn their trust and they became the most loving and trusting creatures you would ever hope to meet. Eventually, I was even able to break Sundance to drive a pony cart. Miss Classy, the mare, became very ill about a year ago and almost did not make it if not for the loving care and attention of C.C. and the Alamo Pintado Equine Clinic. While Classy was there at the clinic her brother, Sundance, was right by her side at all times. Recently, after a long night with Classy becoming ill again, C.C. decided it would be best to have her put to sleep. Not being sure how Sundance would handle things with his sister and best friend gone, C.C., with her expert knowledge, allowed Sundance to say goodbye to his sister and then took him away so that he could not see Classy’s lifeless body being removed. The gentleman that he is, Sundance is doing very well. I honestly could not say that Classy would have been so brave if it were Sundance who was gone. Thank you so very much C.C. and the Alamo Pintado Equine Clinic for all that you do. Juli Welby Moss, Los Alamos

Thank You for being there for these sweet, defenseless & voiceless beings!

I have donated and helped with fundraising for this wonderful organization. The people involved are so good with the animals. The founder is amazing she works tirelessly to help the animals and educate the community. This is a great asset to our community. I am happy to donate because I know the money goes to the care of abused animals to give them a new start.

This organization is filled with love and compassion. I have been a volunteer for three years and have witnessed miracles. Animals who have been abandoned and neglected learn to trust humans and find their forever home. CC Wellman the founder gives the most loving care I have ever seen. She always helps when any animal is in need.

I have known C.C. for 25 years and have never seen anyone more knowledgable and caring with animals. She has dedicated her whole life to the care and comfort of hurting and neglected animals. The sanctuary is a wonderful place where the animals are taken care of as family. Whenever I have a question about animals, she is who I call. She truly has a special gift!

In all my experience working with animal rescue sanctuaries I have never seen more compassion and respect given to the animals than at Happy Endings. I have spent a number of years now working with horses and dogs that have come to H.E. with issues from either being neglected or abused and watched them heal, if it weren't for C.c and her Sanctuary these animals would not be alive today or would possibly never have experienced any kindness in their lives. Happy Endings is truly dedicated to the lives of animals and every cent donated goes their care.

Recently, this organization was involved in the rescue of a group of badly neglected horses, and when I say "involved" I mean boots on the ground: Locating the herd, convincing the owner to relinquish the animals, trailering them to where they would be safe and caring for them until they could get their health back and be placed in loving homes. All this was done on faith because like most grassroots non-profits, Happy Endings does its crucial work for animals on the faith that the funds needed will appear. On my 60th birthday, I had my friends donate to Happy Endings in lieu of buying me a gift, and knowing their donations were going to such a fine organization was the best gift I could receive. Happy Endings is a Godsend for animals in need and deserve all the support they can get.

Review from Guidestar

If you have ever had a pet you then know what good things that Happy Endings does. Taking in the pets that people can no longer care for and finding them new homes takes a lot of time and energy. C.C. is wonderful in both areas. Not only does the animal have a great home to come to while waiting for an adoption but C.C. and all the workers make sure the animal is loved and cared for and goes to a good home. This is a great organization that is kept going with lots of love and good old fashioned hard work. Lots of love is the key to keeping the animals happy. This is one place where working with the animals makes the people as happy as the animals.

I have helped this sanctuary by holding benefits and am thrilled to note that they do an excellent job on all levels. This sanctuary has helped so many animals and has done a fabulous job of matching the animals that are adopted to the people they most need and vice-versa. This organization is extremely honest and trustworthy and I am proud to help them whenever I am able!

have them include wildlife in their rescue efforts.
