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

Rating: 5 stars  

Under Lisa and Chris' care, I have seen many, many horses go from starved & scared, whether from auction, owner surrender or abandonment, to happy, healthy animals - many ready for loving adoptive families. Those with chronic ailments or advanced age, will more likely than not, find themselves Permanent Residents, assured to live their remaining years in comfort & love. Foals have started their lives under the watchful eye of HHER, never having to experience the trauma of an auction at the start of their young lives.
The souls who's lives are at an end, are treated with dignity, respect and are helped to cross the Rainbow Bridge without suffering. And its always a sad day to learn when one has crossed. They go knowing no fear, that their golden years were spent being cared for and loved.
Anyone wanting to adopt an 'HHER Graduate', must complete an application process & undergo a through screening process. If at any time an adoptive family can no longer care for the animal, he or she comes back to HHER.
Bentley's story is a wonderful case. Bentley is a Clydesdale, who was pulled from an auction in April of 2009, severely under weight. Several hundred pounds later, he was ready for adoption. Roughly 2 years later, he was retrieved & brought home, looking far worse than he did when he was brought in to begin with. Because of the health problems associated with the starvation he once again endured, Bentley is now a permanent resident of HHER. You see, I was there when Bentley was brought to the farm from the auction & worked with him on a volunteer basis for a while; I was there just before he left for his adoptive home and I saw the result of his 2 years away - my heart broke... This lovable, gentle giant will forever hold a place in my heart...

Many 'disposable' horses have found new lives thanks to Lisa & HHER... some mares, in foal, have been brought in & had their little ones right on the farm. I have seen horses saved from neglect by their former owners - left abandon when they moved away. Lisa has gone & picked them up, nursed them back to health & adopted them out; I have seen seniors rescued from both the 'auction' here in NJ & the one in PA - horses, that were only seen as a machine to some, when their usefulness over, dumped and destined for slaughter. My heart swells when I see some of the pictures & videos of the 'graduates' from HHER - and sometimes the tears well, knowing that so many of these magnificent animals have found homes; some living out their golden years in comfort, security & with love they so richly deserve .... Thank you, Lisa...
