Thank You

As is the case with many animal Rescues, Hooves & Paws Rescue of the Heartland does not receive any public funding. We rely entirely on the kindness of private donors to support our mission. We would like to say thank you to everyone that has so generously given to our Rescue & Shelter.
We feel we have truly been blessed to be allowed to Rescue, Rehabilitate and Adopt so many Horses, Donkeys, Mules, Dogs & Puppies since we opened our gates to our Rescue/Shelter.
Each day in addition to our full time jobs we deal with many neglect and abuse cases all across Iowa, Nebraska and beyond. ... read more

Safe Houses Needed

We are in desperate need of Safe Houses for rescued horses and large breed dogs. We have many horses & dogs that need a place to call home until they can be adopted into forever homes. We get phone calls every day to place animals at our rescue. We never want to turn any animal away. So, if you can open you home and heart to either a horse or a large breed dog please contact us. You can help us save the life of an animal. What is a Safe House? [perma link]
