"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
"Shelter dogs aren't broken, they've simply experienced more life than other dogs. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage." ~unknown
Our Featured Pet...
Who We Are
Sheltered Hearts was created when we saw the need to help decrease the euthanasia rate of so many puppies, dogs, kittens and cats losing their lives each day because there is no home for them. Our goal is to save as many animals as possible as well as to educate the public on ways they can help decrease overpopulation. We would like to provide spay & neuter assistance for lower income families and other shelters.
S.H.A.R.E is committed to improving the lives of all animals in the communities we serve, and to eliminate unnecessary euthanasia of the homeless and neglected.
Volunteering and Donations
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization so your donation is tax-deductible. This donation helps with spay/neuter, vaccinations, treatment for heartworms, if necessary, and any other health issues from which the animal may be suffering when they come into our rescue.
Many come to us sick or injured making donations more critical. We are not subsidized by the government so we depend on fundraisers and donations from caring people in our communityto save their lives .
