Programs: Our Goals: (1) Accept into our program equines in need who have been victims of abuse, neglect or abandonment; (2) Assist in the placement of equines under the care of private owners who can no longer maintain them; (3) Provide necessary management, veterinary and farrier care for those equines under our protection; (4) Rehabilitate and adopt out equines to suitable homes as sport-horse prospects; pleasure riding prospects or as retirement/companion animals; (5) Obtain sponsorships for those equines who maintain a permanent residency within the auspices of our organization; (6) To provide all animals under our care with a comfortable and dignified existence without pain or suffering. If and when physical and medical circumstances no longer allow that comfortable life; to let them go gently and kindly with a humane veterinary-assisted euthanasia.

Helping Hearts equine rescue has been a part of my life for many many years. Lisa Post gives 150% (and that’s putting it mildly) to each animal in her care. She has given these animals a wonderful second chance to live their lives and be respected, loved, and content. It doesn’t matter how old or young, if horses, mules, donkeys, minis, (this also includes goats, pigs, wounded birds, chickens, turkeys) are in desperate need of a home and a place to heal they find it here at HHER. And, for those that are not able to be adopted out for certain reasons; Lisa welcomes them to her beautiful and peaceful farm as their permanent and forever home. I have seen so much love, concern, and amazing volunteer teamwork in caring for the horses, mules, minis, and donkeys that call HHER home. Everyone here is always ready to do whatever it takes to help any animal in need. All animals receive the best veterinary care and diets based on their dietary and medical needs. Not only has Lisa made HHER into a safe haven for these precious animals, she is always ready to help others whether it be by giving advice or hands on assistance…it’s all for the animals and about making their lives better. We all work together and as a volunteer, I am so grateful to Lisa to allow me and the other volunteers to be a part of this rescue. It is very sad that the abuse and neglect of these magnificent creatures will continue to happen at the hands of people that possess no compassion or concern but who only see these animals as a commodity to be used and tossed aside when no longer needed. However, on a happy note there are people like Lisa and us as volunteers that give of ourselves to help those animals in need. Helping to give them the quality of life that they deserve. I am so proud of the work and labor of love that Lisa takes on because she cares that much. I highly recommend this rescue for the best possible care ever of a horse, mule, or donkey in need.

Helping Hearts & it’s founder Lisa are an amazing horse rescue! Known it since it’s inception and they always go above and beyond for the animals! If all professional horsemen & women stepped up as Lisa did & took care of their own animals to the end, there would be a lot less need for rescue.

Helping Hearts Equine Rescue has helped to give so many horses, mules, and donkeys that second or even third opportunity at life. A life that offers them a chance to find a new loving home through adoption or a forever home right there on the farm-depending on their circumstances.
Lisa Post, founder, does an amazing job providing vet care, safety, and love to these beloved animals. As a volunteer for many years, I’ve seen first hand just how much love and care this rescue has given and continues to give.
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is amazing in every way...from the volunteers to all of the precious animals in need that find their way to this farm.

Helping Hearts is one of the few charities outside of my church I never hesitate in giving my donations. Lisa's care and love for her rescued horses and a number of other needy animals is beyond measure. She is particularly kind to senior horses living out their lives in her rescue after they have been retired. She is always posting stories of her animals and these tales prove her genuine compassion and understanding of her animals' needs and personalities. I highly recommend Helping Hearts Equine rescue as one of the best in the nation.

I had followed them on social media for a while. I went to a few tack sale and was very impressed by Lisa Post and her rescue. All her animals were healthy and friendly and the barns and grounds were well kept. She took in a horse that I was interested in and I went to see him. He was not a good fit for my needs, but she never rushed me and was so nice when I told Scout would not work out for me after all. All donations go right to the horses and she never turns away the old and ill--that is mostly she keeps and cares for until the end. I couldn't think of a better charity for my hard earned money to go to.

Even during the pandemic, Helping Hearts Equine Rescue was able to continue their ongoing efforts to take in new equines in need of assistance, as well as continue the great work that HHER has done for more than ten years with their current residents. Whatever the rescues need as far as taking care of their medical needs, shoeing, special feed, etc. ...THEY GET! (Along with the special attention they get from the volunteers). Whether they are young, old, horse, mule, mini, donkey or pony, they are treated as individuals with dignity and caring.

Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is a great place to visit. Lisa is kind and caring with all the horses, ponies, dogs, cats, and she even has a pig. She also runs a boarding stable and offers dressage lessons. I leased a horse there and it was a great experience. I really learned alot. I would definately recommend Helping Hearts because it is very well run and another great thing....she also has a great group of workers and volunteers who help out with the horses.

HHER cares tremendously for their rescues, many times taking them back and caring for these horses for the remainder of their lives. They work at making sure an adoption is a good match initially, but circumstances and life events happen and they happily take back their horses.

Old and unwanted horses to young and unstarted horses, HHER takes them all in, gives them a second chance for happy futures. Finding new homes for these horses is no easy task, a lot time and money is required to rehabilitate and find suitable homes for these horses. Potential adopters are screened thoroughly and HHER does solid evaluations of the horses before offering them for adoption. I highly recommend donating to this rescue group or searching for your next equine companion there.

Helping Hearts is one charity I never hesitate to donate to. Lisa's dedication to her animals, especially horses in need is incredible. I have followed many stories of her rescues and have been amazed at the transformations in horses she has rehabbed over the years. Her love and appreciation of senior horses and donkeys in need of homes and loving care is beyond measure. An animal lucky enough to live in Helping Hearts' kind and generous care is one of the most blessed creatures ever.

Helping Hearts is one rescue that truly lives up to its name. Rescued horses (and other animals) get more than the care they need to thrive. They also get the love they need to blossom. The stories of rescues are amazing as are the results. Not too long ago, Lisa rescued Romeo, a nearly-starved and horribly neglected Thoroughbred. She posted pictures of his progress as he recovered under her diligent and knowledgeable care. Now, shiny coated, fleshed out, and started on his basic training, Romeo has been adopted and is heading for a new a loving home. His story is just one of many telling the true devotion of Helping Hearts.

I have been fortunate to have spent the past several years as a volunteer at HHER. Lisa Post is a truly compassionate person who has dedicated her life and resources to rescuing and rehabilitating horses. Horses (and all animals) are loved here and they are given the care they need to heal. Lisa is gifted in her ability to work with horses and has provided a sanctuary for unwanted, mistreated and misunderstood horses.

I started volunteering with HHER several years ago. Keller, the first rescue that I helped with ,was a partially blind, deaf and elderly pony. I developed a bond with him. He would prance around after I groomed him and sometimes trot over to see me. He lived out his long life well cared for and surrounded by love on Lisa’s beautiful farm often side by side with his best friend, Simon a rescued Amish draft horse. I have been lucky to help provide TLC with many of Lisa’s rescues including a Clydesdale named Bentley and a Peruvian Paso Fino named Gaitor. Lisa takes in horses that have been mistreated, neglected and often left to be auctioned for slaughter. At HHER they are rehabilitated with love and proper medical care. They learn to trust again. Lisa finds them good homes. She also takes equines that are not adoptable due to health conditions and lets them live out their lives with the dignity, love and care that they deserve. Lisa one of the most hard working people I know but to her, horse rescue is her life and passion.

For the love of a horse. Not just any horse. But a big, beautiful horse. One that I knew I could never own, but I loved with all my heart. When HHER had rescued him from auction, he needed a few hundred pounds before he would look like the magestic Clydesdale he once was. But a malnourished horse can develop autoimmune issues and it took time. HHER was there for him, like so many other equines over the years. Many loving homes have welcomed lucky equines, but Lisa continues to keep watch. Some horses make their way back to HHER if their family’s circumstances change. Some become permanent residents. Such was the case with that big hunk of Clyde, Bentley. The big guy had been thru some tough times and his body showed. He had issues keeping on weigh, his feet abcessed, but his spirit kept Lisa and HHER fighting for him. I remember the day Lisa allowed me to come down and meet Bentley and the rest of the gang. Here I was this fat, frumpy special ed teacher drooling over this huge horse! I commend Lisa and Chris, and all the others who make HHER the incredible rescue it is today. There are animal lovers and then there are those who seem to exist for the animals. Her interest and knowledge of all living things just exemplifies what an extraordinary person she is. And she has gathered a great team for the rescue. She fights for the animals but is humane when it comes to making THAT decision. She made sure that the group of us who loved the big guy all knew that as long as he showed he was willing to fight, she would fight for Bentley. Her and her team of equine specialists. A message I interpreted as “I don’t care how much anyone cries, when it’s Bentley’s time, I will do what is best for him. Based on what the vet and farrier feel as well.” I am grateful for HHER for all that they do. I am thankful and grateful for Lisa Post because she took the time to educate me, teach me about what her rescue does and share her love and passion for equines with me so that this fat, frumpy special ed teacher could share that message with everyone who would listen. There are a whole lot of rescues out there....not all are good, not all are reputable. But I stand behind this one. There aren’t enough ways to express that. Except one....go ask the horses!

Lisa and her team do whatever it takes to see that each horse's diverse needs are met. They know not all horses learn the same wayThey understand that what is good for one horse it may be the complete opposite for another.. they give horses a whole new lease on life. A true soft and safe landing when they might have lived a not so good life before. I don't have much to donate.. but I do when I can.

My husband decided to take up riding and then wanted a horse. He is quite tall and was a very inexperienced rider at the time. We looked high and low. A TB came up for adoption at Helping Heart. I talked to Lisa about the suitability of a TB for a very inexperienced rider and she said Kole would be perfect. Kole was over 17 hand and very mellow. We went to meet him and he was exactly as Lisa said. A big, sweet puppy dog. They had rescued him from very bad conditions and brought him back to health. He and my husband had a wonderful relationship. Helping Hearts does an amazing job of caring for the animals they rescue and knows them and are very honest about what the animal has been through and what to expect. Kole and Jim had a wonderful relationship.

Helping Hearts is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of equines (horses, donkeys, mules). They rescue animals from starvation, neglect, and slaughter, and they put their whole hearts into providing the best care and rehabilitation possible. I’ve never seen a rescue work so hard to give these animals the best lives they could ever have, just walking through the rescue feels like you’ve entered a wonderland. These animals have gained a sanctuary where they loved and exceptionally well cared for. This rescue is an amazing place, and they put their all into the care and happiness of the equines they rescue. There are no lengths they do not take to ensure their equines are safe, healthy, and eventually, placed into a loving forever home that holds the same values for care.

I am a donor to Helping Hearts Equine Rescue. They first came to my attention when the founder, Lisa Post, facilitated the rescue of countless horses through the old Camelot Horse Network on Facebook. I found my first horse, whom I've since retired to a life of leisure, through Camelot. Later, looking for a reliable rescue to donate feed sack coupons to, both a fellow horse rescuer and my equine dentist suggested HHER saying every single penny goes right to their equines. How can you beat that?! I've since made many donations big and small knowing Lisa and HHER work tirelessly to help horses, donkeys and mules get a safe landing and a new lease on life. They get whatever they need for however long it takes to get a chance to be adopted to the best homes or they find life long sanctuary with Helping Hearts Equine Rescue. And I feel great knowing I can be a very small part of a second life for these sweet souls.

Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is a wonderful example of responsible and sustainable animal care. They do a professional job on a daily basis for all their animals in need, but more importantly they have structured their program to plan for the lifetime of each animal and they know their limits. This means that they will be able to be there not just for the immediate need but for the life of the animals that they rescue. I applaud the care and planning that goes into each and every intake and their commitment to excellence.

I adopted a wonderful horse named Logan from this rescue in 2013. HHER is very professional and very well run. They make sure the horse is the most important thing in the rescue and adoption process. HHER is a topnotch rescue.

Helping Hearts has been rescuing horses from the auction/kill pen for many years... These horses usually aren't ride-able and have many medical problems... To some they are disposable junk to be thrown away... But to the people from Helping Hearts there life's deserve to be saved from the cruel kill buyers and slaughter houses... Here are just two of the horses, Charlie and Scotty rescued by Helping Hearts that I fostered... Sadly both have passed on but because of Helping Hearts they where saved from a horrendous death and lived out their life's in peace... This is a noble cause...

I adopted two horses from HHER. The process is thorough on both parts of the adopter and the horse. Care is taken to make sure it is the best match for the sake of the horse and the adopter. Adoption contract is thorough and covers all issues that may arise ensuring the horse comes first and is always taken care of. HHER is the best rescue out there in terms of the needs of the horses being met. HHER is an inspiration for doing Rescue well.

I had to choose "general member of the public" for my 'role', however I own a PA rescue (HeartSong Haven). I greatly admire the folks at HHER for proven dedication they have shown to rescuing horses. HHER is truly a blessing to those equines unfortunate enough to find themselves in a bad way. I follow many other rescues, and don't know very many that are as dedicated as they are.
