Recognizing the healing power of companion animals, the mission of Heart2Heart Pet Lifeline is to keep pets out of shelters and rescues and help owners keep them in loving homes. To that end, we provide financial help for veterinary services and other pet needs to income eligible pet families in need who do not have other options for care. No owner should have to choose between medical care and euthanizing or surrendering a pet.
We are a nonprofit organization hoping to make a difference. We work with Coulee Region Humane Society and other pet rescue organizations, as well as local veterinarians, to identify clients and award grants needed to keep pets healthy and in loving homes.
Making the world a better place
one pet at a time.
When you need to find a place to live and you have a pet, things become a little more complicated. Heart2Heart helps with boarding expenses for people who might otherwise have to give up their pet while waiting for housing. Charlie was in this predicament when she learned about our boarding grant and was able to board her pretty little cat Citrine until she found a home where they could stay together.
This story is very uncomfortable. It is hard to always keep an eye on kids and pets. Maddie found out too late that one of the kids in her home put an elastic hair tie around the testicles of her dog, sweet Robbie. The hair tie was on long enough to cause an infection and damage to Robbie’s testicles. The damage was great enough that Robbie’s testicles were removed. What a hard time of it for this family. At least there was help for Robbie.
It’s one of the things we dread. Younger managed to slip away from Rosa and got hit by a car. Although he looked rough, thankfully there wasn’t anything worse than some moderate cuts and bruises. Checked out by the veterinarian, Younger is on the mend and good to go again under Rosa’s watchful eye.
An impacted anal gland is pretty darn painful and, as we understand it, can burst if not cared for. Heart2Heart wants to help pets get well sooner rather than later! Fortunately for handsome cat Nick, Randy saw signs of anal gland problems and got help. Nick needed surgery but avoided the most difficult problems and Randy thanks you all for your help.
What is Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia? Unfortunately, Sienna learned all about it when her 3 year old pitbull, Glacier, was lethargic with no interest in food. Sienna got Glacier in for veterinary care where blood work led to this diagnosis. Glacier is tolerating the medications very well and has got the pep back in her step. Let’s all cross our paws that Glacier continues to do well.
Ozzie was so miserable he just quit eating. Linda watched her dog struggle and didn’t have funds for getting help. Fortunately, someone told Linda about Heart2Heart and she got Ozzie to a vet. Urinalysis confirmed UTI and Ozzie’s behavior quickly became close to normal. But blood was found in his urine again and he went back the vet where bladder stones were discovered. Ozzie is lucky all of you were here to help because he got the surgery he needed and is mended. Linda thanks you all so very much.
