About Us

Heart to Heart Small Dog Rescue is a nationwide organization, comprised of caring foster parents devoted to the dogs. We are all unpaid volunteers, and 100% of the adoption fees and donations go toward caring for our rescues. It is our mission to rescue and provide safe haven to as many abused, abandoned and unwanted dogs as we have room for. These dogs would otherwise die in kill shelters or on the streets or meet any number of horrible ends that befall the unwanted. We don't discriminate; we take any small dog, regardless of its age or condition.

Heart gets these dogs vetted as needed. Some are healthy when they come to us but many are not. We work hard to bring the dogs to optimum health, often using holistic treatments and remedies. Studies have proven that the overuse of chemical flea, tick, heart worm preventatives, de-wormers, and over vaccinating can cause cancer, liver disease, diabetes, seizures, and heart disease as well as other conditions, so we treat health conditions by natural means whenever possible.  

Once the dogs are healthy and of a good mental state we start looking for just the right home for each dog. While in foster care we learn their personalities and temperaments as well as work with them on crate training, house breaking and basic house manners.

Yes, Heart to Heart Small Dog Rescue has a bleeding heart...we take in many dogs that others will not. We rescue, nurture and place Senior Dogs & Special Needs Dogs, along with the young and healthy. Here you will find a variety of breeds and ages. Some dogs may not be listed yet, so if you don't see a dog that grabs you drop us an email at: heartbod@yahoo.com
