Welcome to Happy Heart Sanctuary

About Us


A place for farm animals to live a life filled with kind hands and loving hearts, warm beds and plenty of food. A place that promotes vegan living and reconnecting with nature through education and awareness! Come join us and make your heart happier too!

Who are We?

We are a bunch of animal nuts who are determined to create a sanctuary for farm animals. Our funds are very limited but our enthusiasm is extremely high and this summer will be the start. Hopefully by the end of 2018 we can start taking animals in!

We want You

Become a part of Happy Heart! If you can physically help do that or maybe you can help with a donation but if you can't do either we would love to have your loving thoughts and kindness 

Miracles do happen!

We have a fence!!!


The best story of Happy Heart so far:

Claudia just went to Guys Farm and Yard in Morrisville to order more fencing since they only had a couple rolls last time and needed to order the taller kind, 6 foot fencing. When she said to Sam, the owner, how much it would be he told her that it is paid for by an anonymous donor!!!
She begged him to give her the name but he wouldn’t budge! This is an expensive item since we need quite a bit of fencing to make sure the animals have as much space as we can possibly give them and to make it as secure as possible so they don’t get out and more importantly so wild animals don’t get in and hurt them.

We are truly in utter shock at the kindness of these anonymous people who are supporting Happy Heart so much, helping every which way they can to make this dream come true!

Unfortunately we can’t thank you directly but please know that whoever you are who is donating this fence to us it is so deeply appreciated and will not be forgotten! We hope you will contact us privately so we can thank you in person although words cannot express how grateful we are!
Thanks to incredibly good Samaritans like you this dream is becoming a reality much quicker and the animals will be profoundly grateful!!! 

We had a lot more fencing then this :)

Many Hands Make Light Work

Putting in the fence and putting in the barn doors

The later part of July 2018 we had a put in the fence weekend and friends of Happy Heart came as far a Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and even California to help! It was a huge success because not only did we get the entire fence put it, but we also got started on the gates. 

Our volunteers were like machines and wouldn't stop even in almost 90 degree weather. So the barn doors received their hardware and were also installed. 

In order to keep our bodies going we had Judith Foti and her husband come by with delicious vegan food, too much to name and eat!

Thank you all so much and especially Debbie, David, Tatsu, Gerard and Chris for tracking so far to help! We couldn't have done it without you guys!

Animals should live in Freedom!

Together we are creating a dream! 

A dream that can come true for many animals, a dream of a warm place that is soft with hay and straw and plenty of food, a place where they are safe and nobody mistreats them for any reason, a place where there will always be ample food and most of all kind hands that touch them with love and compassion!

Of course love always goes both ways! 

By creating Happy Heart Sanctuary we are not just creating a place for animals but for human beings as well. It is a place where we are building a community for everybody that wants to make this world better. All of our events will be centered around one theme and that is HAPPINESS! Making all Hearts Happier and doing good in the world.

Eating yummy food! 
One of the easiest ways to stop suffering for farm animals is to stop eating them and we will make sure that you have amazingly delicious alternatives. We will have many cooking classes and all of them will be plant based. The heath benefits will be astonishing as well!
