To create a world where the life of every companion animal matters...Every.Single.One.
The mission follows the vision - To provide a loving home to every companion animal that enters our care. Lifetime guaranteed.
The pillars of our work are simple:
In our brief 12 year history, HEA has found forever homes for nearly 4,000 dogs and cats, spayed/neutered thousands more, and provided rehabilitation and sanctuary care to hundreds of others that would have become statistics had they not found the love and compassion of HEA's staff and volunteers.
