Hopeful Hearts Annual Walkathon!

To all of our wonderful supporters:

Due to some logistical problems, the 4th Annual Hopeful Hearts Walkathon, originally planned for May 3, 2014 has been postponed. The best laid plans, right?

Please stay tuned to the Hopeful Hearts website and Facebook page for news of other fundraisers, and an update on this year's Walkathon, which will be rescheduled for a summer date. At this rate, it might just be getting warm by then!

It’s still not too early to start raising funds! If you would like to start now, you can collect your pledges by either creating a giving page at, or downloading the pledge form below to collect manually - or a combination of the two!

As always, thank you for your support of Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue!

It sounds complicated, but it's easy to follow and it makes it very easy for friends and family to donate to our angels.

Hopeful Hearts is proud to announce its new partnership with Tri-Natural Products Inc, the proud, local distributor of Fromm foods (among other great products). Check out the website.

We encourage all our supporters to also support this great partnership and that their furry family member will also benefit from this fabulous product line of great foods, supplements and treats! This is the beginning of what we feel will be a long, mutually beneficial relationship! For any questions, or to initiate your own corporate partnership, please contact

The mission of Hopeful Hearts Rescue Inc. is to provide safe and caring foster homes to dogs who are homeless, with a particular focus on, but not limited to, senior and special needs dogs. Hopeful Hearts will provide protective, stable environments, and using a rigorous screening process, will endeavour to find and place dogs in permanent and loving adoptive homes.

Hopeful Hearts Rescue Inc. also commits to providing foster and adoptive families with support, education and resources to ensure that they are responsible dog owners and that their dogs are happy, healthy and secure.

Hopeful Hearts is committed to complete transparency and financial accountability in our dog rescue operations. We strongly believe that it is important for our donors to know how their dollars are spent. Please view our Quarterly Reports to learn more about us and our work.

We hope you will find these reports informative and timely. With thanks, Roz and the Board at Hopeful Hearts

Does your pet have a personalized pet identification tag yet? Is that old one scratched and worn and hard to read?

Check out Wag Tags.
