Healing Heart Chapel
The heart knows no difference between losing an animal companion, and losing a human companion. We hurt deeply because we love deeply. The process of grieving for a pet should be no different than mourning the death of a human being. The difference lies in the value that is placed on a pet by family, and by society as a whole. The Healing Heart Chapel will offer animal lovers sanctuary. A place of peace where comfort, and support can be found throughout the grieving process, and beyond. A place where loved ones will never be forgotten because every life matters. Click here to view the Healing Heart Chapel page.
Our process is unique in that a commitment of time is required in order to facilitate the best match. This may mean several visits to our facility to spend time with the available dogs. We will also require a home check prior to any adoption. This process has proven to be highly effective in facilitating excellent matches, less stressful adoptions and more happy beginnings. Please view our adoption page where wonderful pets are waiting.
Before we get into the " real cost" of rescuing from Kill Pens, we should start by saying we believe every single horse deserves a chance at life. No horse deserves to be in a kill pen or to suffer the horrific journey to slaughter. There is nothing more difficult than scrolling through your timeli...
7yo Teddy found himself abandoned at a kill shelter. He was barely able to stand on his own or walk. Teddy was then misdiagnosed by the shelter vet and placed on the euthanasia list.
His shining personality caused shelter staff and management to reach out to us with a special request to save Teddy. We accepted and had Teddy transported directly to our vets.
After thorough exam, lab work and X-rays we discovered that Teddy had likely been run over years prior. Unfortunately veterinary care was not sought at the time of injury causing Teddy's hips and back legs to deteriorate over the years.
We set Teddy up to undergo hip surgery but unfortunately he only regained a very small percentage of the use of his legs.
Even with Teddy's limitations, and his running days behind him, he still has the heart of a puppy. Teddy brings so much joy and comfort to everyone he meets. We were glad we could give Teddy back some of his happy. ... See MoreSee Less
Toby was dropped off by his former family asking us to please help him find a better life. They loved him but knew they couldn't provide the life and care he deserved.
Our first order of business was taking care of all Toby's vet care & grooming needs. Then helping him get accustomed to life indoors with the company of other dogs. Toby had lived all of his short 9 months in a backyard and running loose through the neighborhood.
Those days are over! On Sunday we gave Toby what his former family hoped for. He now has his very own family which includes 2 canine siblings along with everything a pup could want.
What a difference loving touches, top-of-the-line veterinary and farrier care and proper nutrition can make.
Today was a monumental day for Pancho. He enjoyed a much needed brushing and mat removal. Next was an exam and blood work along with parasite treatment which will be repeated for the next 5 days. Then the most overdue hoof trim was done. All of this and a brand new fly mask made for a pretty great day for Pancho.
Thank you to all who donated to make today possible for Pancho. We are so grateful and Pancho without a doubt now feels how loved he is.
Aires and his 11yo sister Samara were left at a boarding facility right before Thanksgiving 2015.
Their pick-up day had come and gone. After numerous calls to the family they were finally reached. Unfortunately they had already moved out-of-state. The boarding facility was told they didn't want them anymore and just to drop them off at a shelter. AGN was contacted immediately requesting assistance with a bonded pair of seniors. We agreed to accept them.
5 months later Samara's poor health took a terrible turn for the worse. She was hospitalized immediately and spent several days in an oxygen chamber receiving around-the-clock critical care. Thousands of dollars were spent trying to save this special girl but there was nothing anyone could do.
Left behind was Aires. He had spent his entire life with Samara and was lost without her. We slowly integrated him with some of the senior pups to try and ease his loneliness.
It's been almost 2 years now and he has finally found his happy again.
