About Open Hearts Animal Rescue

We are a very small, independent rescue. Our goal is to save as many as we can and provide them with medical and behavioral help. All dogs will come fixed, shots, chipped and on all preventions. We also teach basic obedience while the pet is with us, and once they're adopted, if needed.
