Dear Heather,

I wanted to let you know how grateful we are for your services. When rescuing 120 animals, including horses, all with emotional and physical ailments it is imperative to think outside the box, as sometimes there is only so much the Vets can do.

You have helped us communicate with our animals so we can really know what they are thinking and feeling and that builds a bridge between us and them and allows for us to be so much closer to them. It builds trust and love, the first necessary stepping stones to mental and physical health.

I believe your healing work to be the reason the veal calves we rescued last year are still alive. The Vets wanted to put them down and felt sure they would not make it. You gave us hope to keep going, investing, fighting. Today the calves are running, playing, and loving life. Your work was just as important as the Vet calls to ensure they made it.

When the next call comes in with a sick, abused, or injured animal, we will have you as our secret weapon and will take the animals in with confidence because you are on our team.
Thank you for helping us save lives!
