Latest News From The Sanctuary

We Care About Roosters

One of the ways that cities can help alleviate the problem of homeless roosters is by allowing roosters in the same municipalities as hens. Cities are unknowingly creating this problem by allowing backyard hens, but not allowing roosters. We have heard from people who are threatened with heavy fines for having rooster and must rehome him.

Why Heartwood Haven is a VEGAN Animal Sanctuary

To me the greatest change that has come with being vegan is that it completely changed the way I look at the world and life. It filled me with compassion for non-human animals as well as for other humans. It has truly been a life changing experience for me. It feels odd to remember a time when I actually thought that eating animals was normal. Now it seems like the most abnormal thing in the world to me.

Resident piglet, Wanda, is adapting to her new home at Heartwood Haven Sanctuary.

Fundraising Campaign for the Three Little Pig(lets)

Just under two weeks ago, Heartwood Haven expanded the sanctuary grounds once again, this time to intake three piglets in need of a new home. We were able to build a secure temporary barn using primarily recycled materials and a budget of $300 USD. Now that a few days have passed, we are looking toward the future for the piglet trio. Today, we launched a YouCaring campaign specifically to raise funds for robust fencing, a barn, spaying Wanda, and care-taking for the three rescued piglets. Please visit YouCaring and help us continue providing an improved, safe, and happy life for Wanda, Yoshi, and Koopa. As a 501(c)(3), your donations to Heartwood Haven are tax-deductible.
