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

Rating: 5 stars  

Helping Hearts has been apart of my life now for nine years. It’s my little piece of heaven and a sanctuary for my soul and all of the rescues. Lisa Post is the real deal. She is truly a leader a teacher and a giver of life. Wether it’s equines or cats or a pig or goat they have the ultimate heaven and her unending drive and knowledge to help them and show them a better life than what they had. She never gives up on her animals. She has taught me so much and still teaching me!!!! Thank you Helping Hearts for your place of love and strength you give your rescues.

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.

Hi I am Julie Stern aka: "horsekisserer". I have now been a volunteer for Lisa at Helping Hearts for a year this past May. I came to her looking for something to be passionate about. I am one of those who is always looking to have something "MAKE" me happy or "FEEL" good. Me and my hubby came to her orientation and was instantly at home and in love. I've never felt that feeling of "this is for me". Ever since then I have been going there every Saturday and whenever I can sneak away from work. I had started out just saying oh, I will be there every other Saturday or just for a few hours....
I have learned so much about myself and the world of horsemanship.
Also alot about devotion, sadness, love and fun. NOT just anyone can do this rescue business. IT takes
so much time, energy and just determination. Lisa has literally given and is giving her life for these horses that no one else will take, sick, toothless, hurt you name it. I've never met anyone who does this and not only that but has time for volunteers and teaching riding lessons to boot! I wish I could win the lottery and give it all to her. She and Helping Hearts has changed my life forever not to mention the wonderful folks who support her.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Just wish for a win fall of money to help Helping hearts get stronger, and stay around forever.

My name is Julie Stern and I volunteer for Lisa Post at Helping Hearts Equin Rescue. I chose her place to volunteer first by reading her wonderful Web page. I had also searched the other sites and just could not get a warm fuzzy, as they say. I then with my husband, went to her orientation. She takes a full two hours with everyone, and from the start is very engaging, full of wonderful stories, information and she is very organized and just knows her stuff.

I know nothing of horses, but needed to do something to help me feel better and also to help give back. I had in the past volunteered at our local animal shelter but after a year felt more worn out than fulfilled. I began my time with Lisa in May of this year and have been in love with the place, people, animals ever since. I have never been so proud of saying....I'm a volunteer.
The animals Lisa takes in are abused, not wanted or as of recently, blind. Now how many people do you know that will do that? Lisa works hard, she never makes you feel like your in the way and is always very grateful for your help, nothing is ever not enough. In the same hand, I am proud, gained knowledge of things I never knew, and became a part of some animals life who has gone to a forever home. I try at any opportunity to let people know of Helping Hearts, and try to bring others with me, so they to can see and feel what I do! The hardest part of this is watching the horses go to another home. You get so attached and they feel like they are yours, but we know it is only borrowed time and then they must go to someone else for a new and final home. Too me Helping Hearts is just amazing.
