A Heart For Animals is a foster-based rescue now with an in-house pet adoption center at the Dundee Petco. Our rescue saves animals from kill shelters to give them a second chance at life.

Whiskers is a senior girl who was saved from a high kill shelter in 2015.  She has been in our rescue since then battling a bizarre internal allergy that we have been trying to figure out.

Whiskers has been to numerous vets and has been on MANY treatment plans and specialty foods.  As you can imagine, the cost of her care has been quite high.  We are committed to helping Whiskers and would appreciate your donation towards her care.

Riley is the sweetest dog you will ever meet.  As with many dogs, our rescue pulled her from a local pound in Feb. 2017, when her time 'was up'.   We weren't expecting anything out of the ordinary.  

Our rescue has almost $2500 worth of expenses for Riley that we are struggling to pay.  With the continued treatment for her heartworm treatment, we will surpass this amount easily.  We have received many generous donations already and we truly thank those donors.  We are also selling concrete lawn pawprints to help raise money for Riley's medical fund.  
​She now is being treated for Heart worm.  Will you help us give her the medicine she needs? 

Thank you for visiting our website. Please contact us to adopt, volunteer, and donate!


Since 2012, we have saved over 1,350 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.
