Welcome to Healing Hearts

crittersHealing Hearts Small Animal Rescue, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization. We are funded solely through donations and fund raisers.

Our mission is to improve the lives of homeless, abandoned, neglected and abused animals through rescue and rehabilitation.

We specialize in the rescue of small mammals (rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, etc), birds, reptiles, small exotics (sugar gliders, chinchillas, etc) and dogs under 25 lbs.

When we place our animals an adoption contract is required to be signed by the adoptive family ensuring the future well being of their new family member. Healing Hearts Small Animal Rescue, Inc. also requires an adoption donation with each adoption to help cover the costs involved in pulling, vetting, maintaining, and placing these pets. Some adoption donations may be higher than others due to heartworm treatment and/or other medically necessary treatments the animal requires. In order to continue our rescue efforts, we must recoup part of this investment in our adoption donations.

Please send an email to healingheartrescue@yahoo.com if you have any questions about our rescue, one of the animals for adoption, or any hurt or abandoned wildlife in the area.

About the animals

Animals listed on Petfinder.com

We list as much information as we have about each pet on Petfinder.com. More often than not, we simply do not know how big the puppies will grow to be in adulthood. Please do your research about the dog breed we have listed to see if that particular breed may be right for you and your family.

Licensed wildlife rehabilitators

Members of our staff are licensed wildlife rehabilitators by the State of North Carolina. We rehabilitate gray squirrels, opposums, groundhogs, turtles, rabbits and other small mammals. It is imperative that you please contact us as soon as possible when you find orphaned or injured wildlife.
