Come See Our Adorable Cats!

These three kittens came into our rescue in early July, and we soon discovered that all three have pressing eye issues that need to be treated. Max, the black kitten, has the most severe issues, and it is unclear whether his left eye can be saved.  Our rescue continues to care for sick and deserving cats like these adorable kittens.  Your help by donating here allows us to help the most vulnerable pets so that they can find furever homes.  Please help us continue our mission of rescuing cats like these adorable kittens even when they are sick.

Since 2012, we are on our way to saving 2,000 cats and dogs. AHFA has helped place animals with special medical needs in forever homes where they are happy and healthy. Among the pets we've rescued are abandoned older pets who are now able to live out their golden years with a loving family. To help us continue our rescue efforts, please consider adopting, fostering and donating.

A Heart For Animals Animal Rescue


AHFA partnered with two animal rescue transports to save animals in overburdened shelters as a result of Hurricane Harvey. As a result of the flooding and devastation of Harvey, animals were displaced and end up in shelters. Many of these animals would otherwise be euthanized in only 72 hours after they arrive in a shelter because there is no space for them.

Please consider donating to our GoFundMe so we can continue to rescue animals from areas that need us most.  

Pets We've Saved

Annie is the mother of three kittens that were recently adopted through our rescue. When we took her in, we discovered issues in her left eye that are in desperate need of treatment. She needs numerous visits to the eye specialist in order for us to properly diagnose what her medical needs are.

We have already spent $800 on Annie's eye care, and each additional visit to the specialist is $300. Please help us treat Mama Annie by donating to her GoFundMe so she can live a life as happy and fulfilling as her kittens!

Our rescue pulled Riley from a local pound in February 2017. We weren't expecting anything out of the ordinary, but soon discovered that Riley had medical issues in need of treatment. Our rescue has almost $2500 worth of expenses for Riley that we are struggling to pay. Because she needs ongoing heart worm treatment, we will surpass this amount easily. We are also selling concrete lawn paw prints to help raise money for Riley's medical fund. Please consider donating do help this sweet girl get better.
