“The word is getting out!!!” as posted by Executive Director Laura (Bradshaw) Roggendorf on the Healing HEART Sanctuary Facebook page.
Healing HEART Sanctuary in Lompoc, California is a small sanctuary with a big vision … besides helping to get animals and people on their feet …. HHS wants to make sure small(er) animal rescue groups all across the country hear about resources available to them they may not know about.
Enter Maddie’s Fund and their “Lap Up the Cash to Support a Shelter Animal” incentive for the Shelter Animals Count: A National Database initiative. Groups can earn $1,000 for registering and $500 for each group/agency which registers and puts your group’s name as the referral. So, when your group registers, please put Healing HEART Sanctuary in Lompoc, CA as the referring group; and we’ll receive the $500.
HHS’ goal is to to spread the news, encourage groups to join in, and coach them on ways they can reach out and invite others to participate as well. Combined with the local news coverage of NBC affiliate, KSBY, through email, telephone calls, and direct social media posts, Healing HEART Sanctuary has contacted literally hundreds of rescue groups and individuals related to various groups all across the country to let them know about this opportunity.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Maddie’s Fund’s to help get the word out about their “Lap Up the Cash Program”. Not only are other small animal welfare nonprofits earning valuable grant funds to help animals in their care but we’re also helping source important data necessary to saving lives. The animals of Healing HEART Sanctuary also benefit every time a group or agency names us as their referring organization. It’s a win-win for the animals all around!”

This is just the start ….. for this small sanctuary for injured and disabled animals. In addition to earning the $500 referral amount for each group which puts Healing HEART Sanctuary of Lompoc, CA as the referring agency … This opportunity and project is a dream come true for both Executive Director Laura Bradshaw and long-term Board member Laurel Ley. They met each other in Louisiana in January 2006 during the continued response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. it was then that they both realized they shared a passion in assisting smaller groups in identifying resources which would support them in helping animals more; thus possibly reducing burnout and creating synergies and collaborations which would ultimately benefit rescue animals as well as their adopters.
For all rescue groups and/or governmental agencies reading this ….. on behalf of the animals we all love and value so dearly, we invite to join the movement to monthly share intake and outgoing numbers transparently.
COME ON, SIGN UP, earn $1,000 to your organization and $500 to our animal sanctuary for just 10 to 15 minutes of your time!
