Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is not only a salvation for horses ..The meticulous care these beautiful neglected animals receive at Helping Hearts is above and beyond the norm. The attention and love given to these wonderful souls on a daily basis is tremendous....the transformation so heartfelt and inspiring.....just brings tears to your eyes. I am honored to contribute to this wonderful Rescue. God Bless....
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 off the chart when it comes to a rating of just five stars. This rescue is totally committed to helping and saving horses. I have followed this rescue since it was founded and have witnessed first hand the compassion and dedication of everyone that is involved. The regular visits to Camelot auction to rescue the unfortunate horses that no one wanted to take home and knowing the sad thing was that these horses all had a home at one time and were given up. Owners that could no longer take care of their horses or just did not want them any longer for whatever reason... and Helping Hearts was there to give them another chance to find a home. Lisa Post, the founder, has done so many good things to improve the welfare of horses beginning with her vision to create an organization to rescue horses from the terrible fate of slaughter to the current status of Helping Hearts Equine Rescue as a non-profit. Then there are the many individuals and professionals that have devoted their time because they want to and because they believe in the wonderful things that are taking place here. The pregnant mare that was heading to slaughter, rescued because Helping Hearts was there, the horse that was dropped on the side of a NJ road rescued because Helping Hearts was alerted and immediately rose to the task of rescuing this horse. I could go on and on about the horses that are alive today because of Helping Hearts or those horses that crossed the "rainbow bridge" but were able to spend their last days in a green pasture and warm stall surrounded by loving and caring people. THIS is what Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is all about. Please take time to visit the webpage and read about our horses: http://hher.webs.com/
Both the owners & all volunteers unselfishly dedicate to saving equine and all animals in need. I can honestly say it is a pleasure to know such people. Keep up the good work!
HHER - A Wonderful, caring sanctuary for all horses, ponies, minis, donkeys, mules, as well as any creature in need of expert care, rehabilitation, and most of all, love. I highly recommended supporting HHER in any way possible.
Helping Hearts is a soft place to fall for equines in need. In a world where people don’t value their senior horses and are looking to “ get rid” of them, HH takes in those it can. It’s a small but might rescue that uses your donations to help horses, mules, and donkeys in need.
Helping Hearts Equine rescue is the real thing. I've been a volunteer now 8 years with Lisa Post, president. She takes in the starved...abused...the just " put it down" horses..mules...cats and gives them a whole new life . Also not to mention all the amazing volunteers she has on board. The facility is heaven...Lisa Post is a teacher...leader... community supporter and most of all a gift to animals in fire need.
I am a volunteer now going on 4 years. Lisa Post the owner of Helping Hearts is successful because she is very educated and KNOWS horses and all little critters. Her heart is huge her energy unrelenting and being apart of this organization changes your life. My life has certainly been changed and still is being impacted. Amazing organization. ...
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 am continually in awe when I see the care, love, and attention the rescues at Helping Hearts receive each and every day. Lisa Post and her wonderful volunteers assure happy, healthy lives for the horses they save. Not only are the horses' physical needs met, but their emotional needs are also a priority. Treats, affection, and human contact are a daily part of each rescue's life and I have seen many horses rehabilitated in body, mind and spirit by this exceptional care. I wish there were even more stars to award.
Helping Hearts is the Most Amazing Rescue out here Lisa the owner/founder has a heart of gold she gives her all to help not only Equines BUT ALL ANIMALS IN NEED!!! I can not say all the Wonderful things they offer but tell only the truth. Thank you Lisa for ur Wonderful heart u give so much to each broken soul.
Lisa Post is absolutely an amazing person. She has done wonders for all types of equines. Lisa has worked hard to bring each one to their potential. She has also made sure all of her resumes had the best quality of life.
She personally helped a very special horse "Laddy" when he was in much need. Me and lad have some history so this one really touched my heart and I am forever greatful to her.
We had a horse she rescued. He had been starved and she brought him back. He was exactly what she described him to be. I also know she will take any horse back if you can no longer care for it. The care given to the horses is excellent and she treats them with kindness, compassion, and love....as if they are all her own personal horses.
We adopted an OTTB from Helping Hearts. He had been badly neglected and they brought him back to health. The last thing I thought we wanted was a Thoroughbred for my novice rider husband. Lisa assured us he was a husband horse. We checked him out and found him to be perfect; exactly as described. I have followed Lisa and Helping Hearts since then and she has rescued numerous horses and gives them the best of care. Before adopting them out she makes sure what the horse can do and is very clear on any needs of care or handling that it might be. She cares for the horses under her care as if they were her own special horse. The facility is excellent and well maintained.
I love the work hat Lisa and her volunteers do I am so happy that they give these deserving critters a seCond chance.
HHER is the forever home for several neglect cases. There I fell in love with an elderly mule, the victim of severe over work by her owners. Lisa brought her into rescue where she spent the rest of her days. She was beloved by everyone, and the time I spent with her, and the other equines, was wonderful.
I have been to helping hearts numerous times threw the years. All of their rescues are well taken care of and are happy. They are a great organization.
Lisa Post is an amazing sole who cares for all living things with such passion. She is truly my idol.
Helping Hearts is the most caring, knowledgeable, and professional rescue I have ever experienced.
In addition to taking on the most challenging rescue situations, Lisa Post and her team share their knowledge freely and educate people who want to do the best they can for the animals.
As a horse person with a long career in non- profit work, I can honestly say this is the best I’ve seen. And I happily drive an hour and a half to be part of the barn family!
Helping Hearts is a well run rescue. Lisa truly cares and does the best by the animals she cares for with the help and support of numerous volunteers.
Helping Hearts is an amazing organization that really cares about all animals and always goes above and beyond to help them. The devotion to the horses who are blessed with finding their way there is incredible each and every day!
I rate Helping Hearts 5+++. Lisa Post is a truly first class human being who loves all creatures!
This is truly a great endeavor! Lisa Post goes the extra thousands of miles for ALL creatures. She's the most tirelessly dedicated person I know. A true Saint on Earth. I live for the day I can visit the refuge, and for when I'm able to donate. Please know Helping Hearts is a precious entity that helps endless creatures great and small ❤️
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue takes in equines that might intimidate others. The medical and emotional care they receive is is unsurpassed. Watching the transformation of downtrodden, damaged horses, mules and donkeys into confident, healthy companions is remarkable.
Great rescue! Lisa is doing a great job and typically takes the most difficult cases.
HHER has been doing an amazing job for years taking the most difficult equine rescue cases and giving them a great life. From starved horses to senior ones on their way to auction (aka slaughterhouse), Lisa and the crew of volunteers give them the care and love they needed to blossom as happy horses.
All the work they do is amazing. Some come in such rough shape and Lisa and her staff rehab them to reveal what beautiful animals they become with love and kindness oh and proper nutrition.
Once again I feel compelled to let everyone know what a great rescue Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is. Lisa puts everything into helping the horses, ponies, mules, and donkeys who are lucky to have found safe harbor on her farm. I hear about and witness rescues who fail in their missions to animals, but Lisa pours every donation into the rescue. She's keeps in contact with her donors, like me, and never fails to be open about how her charges are doing. Lisa and Helping Hearts is totally dedicated to making life better for their rescues. I'm proud to help in a very small way as a monthly donor.
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 has made a huge difference in the lives of several horses who needed help the most! Along with rescuing them, they spend the time to bring them back slowly to they're former glory! These horses that are rescued by helping hearts are given a second chance at lofe and love!
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 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.
I am beyond fortunate and honored to have this amazing rescue in my town. They are above 5 stars and the education and learning that is freely given is priceless.
When I see the eye of a horse change from despair to peace in I know HHER is doing it right. This NP is worthy of your support.
I had adopted Mason from this wonderful organization years back. I have seen first hand the compassion, dedication, love and commitment from the onset of receiving a needy resident to the completion and adoption of a for legged family member. Love, experience, dedication and provision of all medical elements needed is the standard for this worthy Rescue. Lisa, you and your staff are amazing and I love your for what you did by rescuing Mason and allowing me to adopt him only after you brought him back to good health. You are the most dedicated Rescue ever. Please, research Helping Hearts Equine.. and you will see as I did... they are amazing and do amazing things for these needy equine.. and others too.. The Best Ever!!!
Visited with my daughters horsemanship club and the tour Lisa gave was wonderful. The girls got to groom a horse and pet donkeys and mini horses and rabbits and a pig! I follow The rescue and Lisa on Facebook and have learned that what she showed the girls is a small small part of how she helps animals and conservation EVERY day and not just cute cuddly ones either but also amphibians and insects! Lisa and her org are awesome!!!
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is just that, all heart! The love and compassion they show for the abused and neglected is truly heart warming. They step up in time of dire need to do the right thing for the horses that are so in need. The action I truly appreciate are the constant updates for their followers. From pictures to videos it's wonderful to feel apart of it when you're sitting behind a computer screen. I as a doner have so much respect for what they do on a daily basis.
I watch the amazing work that they do for the animals that they bring into their program. Most are the last ditch cases and they are diligent in making the animals lives comfortable with dignity. I donate when I am able.
does amazing work rescuing, rehabbing & rehoming neglected horses

I've watched Lisa rescue difficult case after difficult case. Every soul benefits from her experience, knowledge, and deep love of horses. Recently, she brought in a horse that I once knew. He is in rough shape but she fights for him every day. I'm so grateful Lisa and Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is there for the most desperate.
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.
Lisa and Helping Hearts do a phenomenal job! They helped rescued horse who surely would have died a terrible death and have kept her safe!
From the moment I started following Helping Hearts Equine Rescue I knew it was a special place. The knowledge and dedication of the owner/founder, Lisa Post, is unprecedented. She always puts the well being of the animals first. Since becoming a volunteer I’ve seen, first hand, the transformation of dozens of animals in her care. I’ve seen them blossom from neglected and fearful beings into loving and beautiful horses and mules with the opportunity for long and healthy lives.
Helping Hearts Equine rescue does an amazing job providing top notch care for all their equines and other critters in their rescue. Lisa and her crew go above and beyond networking horses in need and educating the public. There efforts have saved thousands of horses lives and they continue to work tirelessly to end animal
abuse and help owners make better decisions.
We adopted my daughters first pony Rosie, from Helping Hearts Equine Rescue. Rosie was saved from a kill pen at an auction house pregnant, lame and sick. Helpingbhearts rehabbed her backed to health and she turned out to be the best pony ever.
I follow this organization regularly and donate whenever possible.
All of my donations have been used as directed and the progress made is clearly documented.
I prefer to donate locally and this is one of the best local animal rescues to donate to if you want to make the most of your donation dollars.
This is a fabulous charity. Lisa works long, endless days caring for animals in need. This is a first class operation which I have viewed personally
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!
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue and Lisa Post are fantastic ! The work they do to help horses in need is outstanding and is so appreciated in our community . It takes long hours and dedication to run a rescue properly and Lisa Post is a great example for others to follow. The horses received medical care , farrier services , and educated feeding programs . The volunteers are a huge asset to the success of the rescue and so are the many who help support with needed donations. I applaud the work they all do and am proud to donate when possible. Thank you Helping Hearts and Lisa Post ! Sincerely, Coeli Netsky
I volunteered to help the poor abused animals and to be truthful every time I go to the barn it’s them that help me!
They all have a story but at Helping Hearts they find love compassion and finally a safe place. I feel the stress of everyday life lift off my shoulders. Lisa Post does an amazing job with her team of volunteers to help animals find a safe place after they are often neglected or no longer wanted. She is amazing at what she does.
Horse rescue is demanding hard work that taxes resources, so I visited HHER expecting to see a rough and ready place run by hard working, dedicated people. I was delighted to find a truly well run, impeccable barn, with a high standard of care and knowledge, run by said hard working dedicated people. I am also very impressed by what Lisa Post has achieved with regard to saving the lives of many vulnerable horses via networking.
I have seen them rescue horses big and small and bring their health and comfort up with the day by day caring. It's a hard job physically, financially and emotionally. Where possible, horses are adopted out but many come for their later years. The only reward is seeing the horses improve and live out their days in love and comfort.
A great organization that helps horses in need! Animals that are ill and in crisis are given medical care, quality stables, and loving human care and companionship.
I have a friend who loves horses and spends time at HHER. I love hearing about her time there because I know it’s good for her soul, so I’m thankful a place life this exists.
Wonderful rescue. They take in as many horses as they can and the before and after transformations are amazing. They really know what they’re doing to rehabilitate neglected and injured horses.
This rescue is amazing. They truely care for these horses. Ive seen horse come from skin and bones to looking like a brand new horse under Helping Hearts care. Thank you for all you do!
I have happily supported Helping Hearts Equine Rescue since 2010. Lisa, her volunteers, and vet can always be counted on to provide the best care for horses in need. This rescue always provides photos and updates on their rescue horses
which is so important for those of us who can only keep in touch and donate via the internet! Donations are so important for the quality of care that Lisa and her dedicated crew provide for the health and wellbeing of HHER’s horses. When a horse arrives at HHER it is quarantined for the appropriate amount of time, usually 30 days, examined by the HHER vet, and evaluated as to its most pressing needs. Refeeding, worming, floating teeth, shots, whatever the new intake might need to begin a new life and hopefully thrive in order to be adopted, are all carefully considered by Lisa and her vet. Some horses may need to retire at HHER due mostly to advanced age. If so, rest assured the horse, pony, mini, or donkey will receive the ultimate care until it’s time to cross the Rainbow Bridge.
So in closing, if you want to donate to an equine rescue that always puts the horses in its care first, chose HHER!
I know and love horses, and other farm animals as well. On my first visit to HHER I was blown away by the organization and care for and condition of the animals and farm - all kinds of animals. They seem content with overall care and visits by volunteers and to get what they need. If additional care or attention is needed the farm reaches out to their extended sources of support. Great place, great model with obvious passion of the management.
When you look at non-profits you are always looking at how much of the money donations goes to help the, in this case animals, and how much goes to management. I had the pleasure of volunteering at HHER and saw first hand that all donations go to the care of these animals. Now that I have moved away I always feel good when I send a donation that it is used on the animals.
BEST use of donations ever. Also the care and love that is given is above and beyond my own personal expectations.
Wonderful non-profit!!! This non-profit goes above and beyond to help horses in need. They will even use their network to tirelessly try to find a home for an unwanted horse.
This is one of the best rescues I have ever come in contact with. Lisa is awesome , compassionate , incredibly knowledgeable, and helps all species. She is a champion for Animals, advocating fiercely! Her love, and determination knows NO Boundaries. She is , simply put, amazing.
I have never seen such a well run, responsible rescue. Helping Hearts takes in some very bad cases and the animals come out winners.
AmaIng people who do amazing work! Can’t wait to visit in person- following along on their work on Facebook is great but just not the same!
