ORGANIZATION: HART 2 HEART ANIMAL RESCUE

Image_202206221502

Hart 2 Heart Animal Rescue needs fosters to care for adoptable cats. As a foster, you provide a safe and loving home environment for kittens and cats as they wait to be adopted.

Make a difference in the life of a cat who needs that intermediate step before permanent adoption. Fostering is a great experience, and the reward comes from when your foster finds his/her forever home.

We need fosters for kittens (with and without their mommas), young and adult cats, as well as special needs cats such as seniors, those recovering from illness or surgery, fearful or less socialized cats. You provide the TLC and we’ll provide any necessary medical care.

We test all animals, ensure they get their vaccinations, and have them spayed/neutered. You need to have a room to keep your fosters separate from your personal pets, keep your cats up to date on their vaccines, and a desire to help cats in need.

If you are able to open your home and your heart, you will find that saving a life will change yours!

About HART 2 HEART ANIMAL RESCUE

Location:

PO BOX 15323, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19111, US

Mission Statement

At Hart 2 Heart, our focus is on helping animals in the Philadelphia and surrounding counties. We nurture abused, abandoned, and unwanted animals so they can be adopted into safe, loving, and secure homes. When needed, we provide a safe haven where animals that are not adopted can live out their lives safely and peacefully in foster care. At the heart of what we do is our commitment to rescue, foster and find great homes for animals in need of a second chance. We have been dedicated to this goal since 2017 and are forever grateful to the volunteers, fosters and adopters who share our vision to give all animals a safe and happy home. We also work to educate the community on the importance of humane animal treatment and practices that reduce animal suffering.

Description

The Hart 2 Heart story begins over 30 years ago when founders Sharon and Michael were living parallel lives doing animal rescue. They were both called to help a woman with a dog named Precious, and a situation involving feral cats. What started out as doing TNR soon turned into the rescue and adoption of hundreds of animals.

Hart 2 Heart works to keep animals out of shelters by finding those adoptable animals the best of forever homes where loving hearts are joined together. For the animals who may not be adoptable, or are special needs pets,we are devoted to getting them where they need to be, whether it is with a foster family, or whether they remain lifelong residents of the Rescue.

Sharon, Mike and the many volunteers of Hart 2 Heart strive to leave no animal behind, continually working towards that goal. This includes securing adoptions, as well as assisting pet parents with pet retention in their homes.
