Happy Heart-Happy Home Farm and Rescue began with a horse. A horse who needed a second chance and a girl who needed a best friend.
I grew up in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia and had no prior experience with farm animals. I originally started my young adult journey studying at a college near NYC, for fashion design and dance. There was a lot of pressure to look a certain way, and my struggles with eating disorders quickly took off like a wildfire. I was a shell of a human being and my motivation for life was gone. At the end of my first year, I transferred to a college closer to home in PA. and in my soul searching… decided to rescue a horse. A 300lb underweight off the track thoroughbred. Celtic. My best friend. As I’m sure you can imagine… we both helped each other become physically healthy… but what Celtic has done for me, I’m sure I can never repay. He’s the reason I’m breathing. He’s the reason I vowed to give as many lost, broken souls a second chance at life as possible, like he did for me.
Fast forward 12 years later, and here we are with 40 equines in our care, and a happy variety of rescued goats, sheep, cows, pigs, cats and dogs living their life of sanctuary at the Happy Home. We have an amazing team that makes so much of this possible, as well as the support of our family, friends and our social media community. This journey isn’t easy, but I am honored to be here, sharing our residents stories and living this life alongside them all. Happy Heart-Happy Home is just getting started and I thank you all for supporting us and being apart of it, we are so grateful for you!
