Make a Difference

June 17, 2010
I will never bring about world peace.
I won't singlehandedly save the rain forest.
I am not a brain surgeon, and I will never transplant an organ to save a life.
I don't have the ear of a powerful politician or world power.
I can't end world hunger.
I am not a celebrity, and God knows I am not glamorous!
I am not looked up to by millions around the world.
Very few people even know my name.
I will never win a Nobel prize, or end global warming.
There are a lot of things I will never do or become...

But today, I placed a dog!

It was a small scared bundle of flesh and bones that was dropped off in a shelter by people that didn't care what happened to it, but yet were responsible for it's very existence in the first place.

I found it a home, a FOREVER HOME!

It now has contentment and an abundance of love.
A warm place to sleep and plenty to eat.
Two little boys have a warm and fuzzy new friend who will love them unquestioning, and teach them about responsibility and love.
A wife and mother has a new spirit to nurture and care for.
A husband and father has a companion to sit at his feet at the end of a hard day of work and help him relax and enjoy life.

No, I am not a rocket scientist...but TODAY I made a DIFFERENCE!

Rescue at Dolan Springs

June 14, 2010
May 2010

A few weeks ago, H.A.R.T. got a call for help with a hoarding situation in Arizona. A woman with several dogs had to move off her property and was in desperate need for help with her dogs.

With support from several other rescue groups in the area, including FIAS, Cedar Animal Rescue, We Care for Animals, and Best Friends, H.A.R.T. traveled to Arizona in our van to see how we could help.

After assessing the situation, we knew that we could only make a dent in the amount of help she needed, but we were there to do whatever we possibly could.

None of the dogs there were spayed or neutered, which was causing a huge problem with puppies. We decided to take all of the puppies, knowing that we had help waiting for us with the other rescue groups to care for the puppies.

We had also decided early on, to take as many of the female dogs as we possibly could, and to leave the males for next time.

So by the time our van was ready to make the trek back to Utah, we had loaded up 26 puppies, ranging in age from 5 weeks to 8 weeks, and 8 female dogs.

We had a wonderful group of volunteers waiting for us at the Ivins Animal Shelter when we returned.
Cedar Animal Rescue took a mama dog with her 5 little pups, and 2 of the younger female dogs.
Ivins agreed to take 18 of the puppies for 2 weeks till they could be transported to a rescue in California.

We had quite the assembly line going for those puppies... take their photo, give them a name (we used almost every letter of the alphabet), vaccinate them, record it all, and kennel them.

After getting the puppies settled in, we sent the other 5 girls and 3 pups off to their new H.A.R.T. foster homes, where they would stay until adoption.

Before the 2 week transport date to California, the Ivins shelter had adopted out ALL 18 PUPPIES. How amazing is that?!

To date, one of the adult female dogs has also been adopted.

Thank you SO much to all of the wonderful volunteers, and to the other rescues who jumped in to help with the rescue. Together we can make great things happen!

There are still several dogs there that need help, and hopefully we can get out there again to take some more dogs, and to get her the help with spaying/neutering the dogs we are unable to take, so that she doesn't end up in the same situation that she was in before.

2nd graders make a difference!

April 11, 2010

The 2nd graders of Merryhill School in Las Vegas held a fundraiser for H.A.R.T., and collected over 400 lbs of dog food for us! It was absolutely amazing, and so wonderful to see what those kids accomplished.
Wade and I went to their school to accept their donation, and we took Aimee with us. She was the hit of the day! She was wonderful with all the kids, and we were able to raise awareness of animal abuse as well as animal rescue while were there.
The day was wonderful, and H.A.R.T. wants to say thanks again to these wonderful students and their teachers.

Please go HERE to see photos and video of the day!

Aimee needs your help.

April 01, 2010

Sweet Aimee... suffering with a broken pelvis for nearly 2 months, and never complaining. When she came to us she was a happy fun-loving pup, with a smile and a heart of gold. One would have never guessed that she was in pain. But her funny little walk prompted us to take her into the WFVC for a check up.

X-Rays revealed a broken pelvis that had started to heal badly. The broken bones and arthritis were causing Aimee to not put any weight on her leg, resulting in a leg that had almost no muscle mass. Doc said that the injury was caused by 'severe trauma'. I can't even imagine what this poor girl went through.

After some discussion about what was best for Aimee, they decided to keep her overnight, and perform surgery the very next day.
We got to bring Aimee home 2 days after surgery, and she is doing SO great! She is putting weight on her leg, and is on the road to complete recovery!

Thank you SO much to the Washington Family Veterinary Clinic for taking such good care of Aimee!

As you can imagine, the surgery to repair Aimee's broken pelvis was very costly.
We are asking for your help with her vet bill so that we can continue helping other animals who have been neglected and abused. Any amount that you can donate will help!

H.A.R.T. thanks you, and the animals thank you too!
