Review for Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Perrineville, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

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.

Review for Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Perrineville, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Review for Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Perrineville, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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/
