We met Harley's Hope last year at a free animal clinic. They were very kind and thoughtful of our family. We have significant health issues and have not been able to get some much needed work done for our precious dog. Through this WONDERFUL organization, they covered the costs to get the work done for our beloved Rosie. We are so incredibly thankful for this organization and all they do for so many. THANK YOU!!
As a veterinarian, I have had the privilege to work with Harley's Hope in many ways including public education and services, consulting, and private owner services. The organization provides public education and outreach in animal health through lectures, clinics and seminars. Through steadfast commitment to responsible pet ownership, Harley's Hope and its leadership has provided resources for life saving procedures and preventive medical care which allows animals to stay in their caring homes. Without organizations like HH, owners who have provided good care for their pets, but have fallen on difficult times, would potentially have to decide on euthanasia or relinquishment of their animals due to financial constraints. Harley's Hope strengthens the human-animal bond in our community and the director, Cynthia Bullock, works tirelessly to find resources to be able to continue to provide assistance to the hundreds of applicants each year.
There is a reason it is called Harleys Hope because it gives people who love their pets deeply "hope" and that is so extremely important in this date and age of so many negative things happening. It also takes a lot of dedication, time and money to start an oranization like Harleys Hope, so kudos also to the people behind this organization, owners, board members, and just people caring and loving. Thank you Harleys Hope for all you do and the burdeons you help lessen.
Harley's Hope Foundation focuses on keeping pets with their people. If a pet owner finds themselves unable to provide for the needs of their longtime pet or service animal, Harley's Hope Foundation can provide assistance in the form of discounted veterinarian services and financial assistant. This is a service that is not otherwise offered in the regions Harley's Hope Foundation serves, possibly nationwide. Volunteering with Harley's Hope Foundation has proven to be a rewarding opportunity. It affords volunteers a chance to see a well-organized non-profit in action, as well as share in the successes. The organization is very open and up-front about it's mission, policies, and financial standings. As a volunteer I have been able to see how large of an impact a very small organization can make on a small budget. I can not recommend Harley's Hope Foundation enough to prospective volunteers and donors.
I live in a retirement community in South Carolina and have seen too often where older people lose their homes, or are living on food stamps, with never enough to pay all their bills each month. Their animal is their best friend, and link to the world. When something happens to them healthwise, and they can't afford to fix the problem, the sense of helplessness is overwhelming. I so enjoy reading Harley's Hope newsletter, where they tell you all the good things they accomplish by helping to provide medical care for pets of people that can't afford it. Although they can't all have happy endings, in this busy, sometimes impersonal and uncaring world, the successes can give you hope.
Harley's Hope gives hope to those who can't provide medical care for their pets from the disabled to the senior citizens. Keeping animals with their owners and knowing they are in a place of love, is the ultimate goal for this organization.
HHF is an organization that has been a continual resource for our animal population and their human companions since its inception. While relatively new, it's been available 24x7 and continues to expand its efforts to ensure a happy resolution wherever/whenver possible. The Bullock Family "walks the talk" in their daily lives - being available 24x7, constantly devoting time and new ideas for fundraising efforts, making sure relationships with the veterinary community and its patients are positive. HHF is well worth this recognition!
While Harley's Hope is a relatively new organization, they have accomplished so much this past year to provide needed medical services to animals - especially service animals whose owners depend on them for their own health and safety. Many senior citizens living on a fixed income don't always have the funds available for emergency medical care for themselves, much less for their animals. The number of abandoned animals these days seems to be on the increase. It is important that good animal owners can receive needed care for their animals without having to make a choice of rent or food vs the animal. This is especially true during these tight financial times, but is also true any time. Harley's Hope works to ensure the animals receive the medical attention required while keeping animal and owner together... a service well-received in the veterinary community as well as the general public. Everyone benefits.
This organization helps so many families overcome financial situations arising from vet bills that would normally force the loss of their pet. Great work!
The biggest thing about Harley's Hope is that the goal is to help animals and keep them in their current home, rather than forcing the owners give up their beloved animal just because they can't afford the care they want to give them. Harley's Hope helps these owners keep the animal they love and give it the medical attention it needs. Harley Hope founder is always trying to do what she can to help as many animals and people as they can. She works really hard to get the money and resources so she can turn around and help others. She's always brain storming new ides to educate owners and the help them keep their animals instead of giving them up.
So many people have difficulties in life for many reasons. They might be temporarily unemployed, elderly and on low, fixed income, or they might have a disability that keeps them from being high-wage earners. This does not, however, mean that they are less productive in society and worthy of having happiness in some small form. Those who have chosen to care for a pet should not be forced to lose that pet because they fall under one of the categories listed above. If a pet is injured, or if a person simply cannot afford the critical care needed for a pet's illness, this resource helps. I wanted to support this specific organization because it can help prevent what I had to go through many years ago with a pet who needed surgery, and we could not afford it. We had to put her to sleep, and it was incredibly hard to do. I want to help people and their pets stay together, and in my small way, through my donation, I am doing just that.
I was asked to be on the Board of Directors by the Founder of Harley's Hope Foundation. Without hesitation, I accepted the position because I believe in the missionof HHF - that of keeping pets and people together in their home environment - thereby reducing the number of pets surrendered to shelters. Most importantly, however, is preserving the special bond between a senior citizen or disabled person who, often times, has only the companionship and love of a pet to bring joy and warmth into his or her life. I have known Cynthia Bullock - the founder of HHF - for many years - both professionally and as a personal friend - and I have a deep admiration for her abilities as a manager of a non-profit entity. Her ethics are true and she has worked tirelesslly to develop Harley's Hope Foundation in it short history. I have no doubt that, with her management, talent and vision, this Foundation will grow and thrive. I am proud to be a part of this organization.
I happened to hear about Harleys Hope Foundation on one of our local news stations and it's heartwarming to know that there are foundations out there that help folks in need with thier animals as I know it sometimes is not cheap to save our best friends lives.
I can not put into words how fortunate I was to find the help I received from Harley's Hope Foundation. It is difficult to have to ask for help, but without judgment and with honest compassion my Dog Isis was treated with the utmost of care.
I have heard great things about Harley's Hope through a neighbor. I feel that this charity is the epitome of volunteer organizations for animals. I feel they are a better activist for animals than nationally recocognized Humane Societies.
Knowing the Bullocks and their dedication to animals is the main reason I donate to Harley's Hope. From their newsletter one can see the outstanding contribution to animals and their owners. Personally they have gone beyond their own means to provide a loving and caring home for all the animals they live with while creating a wonderful nonprofit organization to the community. They have just got started. Can't wait to see what they will do next.
Harley's Hope came to my attention at a "pet event" for animal rescue organizations. I work with Safeplace for Pets which finds homes for pets of the terminally ill. Many times the elderly cannot pay for the medical and other care of their pets. Harley's Hope fills that need so dearly. It is an amazing, compassionate organization who helps real pets in their hour of need.
Harleys Hope is an amazing organization with nothing but animals and their humans in mind. Harleys Hope helps pets get the veterinarian treatment that their owners cannot afford. Pets are a part of our families, like our children, and they deserve the same treatment opportunities and Harleys Hope ensures just that! I give Harleys Hope great reviews and hope that they can continue to do what they do and strive to help more pets/owners in need.
I have a very special dog named Harley who has been the joy of all my dogs I've ever had. At about a year old I noticed that his limp, which I thought was just his leg falling asleep, was not going away and was getting worse. I ended up taking him to the orthopedic surgeon where they took x-rays and told me the damage. Over 1,800 to try and correct his deformity and his growth plate had sealed too soon. I was devastated. How could I help my little man and get him the surgery he needed when I had just lost my job and finances were so tight? I called everywhere I could think of and sold everything I could get rid of. The next choice was to sell my husbands vehicle and be a one car family which I would've done if I had to. I'm not sure how I came across Harley's Hope Foundation but they were wonderful! They helped me come up with the down payment for his surgery and negotiated with the surgeon a discounted price. With this help I was able to have his surgery performed and work out payment arrangements for the rest of the balance. I was so relieved that I could get my baby boy help. Thank you so much for your kindness and understanding Harley's Hope and without you my little Harley would've never gotten his leg worked on.
Harley's Hope Foundation took the impossible and transformed it into possible when they accepted my daughter's crippled (from a birth deformity) young dog and helped him get the corrective surgery to prolong his quality of life. From the first contact with Harley's Hope, we watched everyone team together to seek options, surgical expertise, and most of all - HOPE! I sat on the outside fringes of this whole process and watched as this young dog was given a chance. And, my daughter and husband, the help financially, medically, and emotionally that was so needed during this situation. It must have been a very special connection, for their little guy's name is HARLEY! (As a side note, because of the medical expertise, my daughter was able to pass on the genetic cause of this dog's condition to the rescue group she adopted him from as a puppy. They, in turn, were able to assure this problem pet owner finally had his animals spayed and neutered so this condition would never ruin another dog's life, along with his adoptive family. Harley's Hope is making a difference in Colorado Springs' animal population and it has long been needed! I hope they will continue to receive growing support whether it be financial, volunteers, or medical teams willing to assist.
