A Heart For Animals
We are a no-kill, non-profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue. We are foster based and believe that all animals deserve a chance to have a loving, forever home. In addition, we are a volunteer-only organization and rely on the commitment and skills of our volunteers to carry out our mission. Please consider volunteering or fostering to help us save as many lives as possible.
News and Events
What a whirlwind 2022 was for us at AHFA!

A Heart for Animals relies on donations to help pay for medical expenses, preventatives, supplies, basically anything and everything that a foster animal needs in our care. Many times, adoption fees DO NOT come close to covering our expenses. However, this does not deter us from rescuing an animal that is special needs, ill, senior, etc. We believe all animals deserve a loving, forever home.

Please consider making a donation via our donate button or mailing a check to our PO Box info listed below. Your donation will help animals such as Sparrow or the litter of puppies or the kitten siblings, who are all scheduled to come into our Rescue this coming week.

Looking to make your heart happy? We can help. We are always in need of Volunteers. Foster homes are greatly needed. As one of our foster homes says, “fostering is temporary but euthanasia is forever”. We pull a lot of our foster animals from death row at shelters, so this truly hits home.

We understand not everyone can foster, but a few hours of your time per week can make a world of difference in the life of an animal and to you! If interested, please fill out our Volunteer or Foster app online. We would love to give you more information.

Cheers to another great year! If you have any questions reach out to us.  We’re always happy to help.
