Debbie and her crew and staff at Have a Heart rescue the "high-kill" canines from shelters and provide them with a second chance at life. They go beyond rescuing these animals. Debbie gives them a fresh start by having them medically attended, gives them a temporary home with no rush to get them placed, and in the meantime they provide them the basic training on behavior modification so that they can become a well-mannered family member.
They take their time in matching up the "forever" families with each individual dog and have had much success. Although Debbie is a dog lover, she is not blinded by their circumstances and works very diligently to find them the perfect match for a successful adoption.
We thank Debbie and her staff at HAVE A HEART, for being so professional and so caring about canines.
