Happy Endings Animal Rescue (HEAR) began in the summer of 2007. Sublette County, Wyoming experienced a “boom” due to natural gas exploration and development, which brought in folks and their pets from all over. In just a few years, the population grew from a few thousand to almost 10,000 at its peak. HEAR was founded by a group of animal advocates who saw the need to help re-home the many dogs and cats that came with the population growth. HEAR received its 501(c)(3) non-profit designation and continues to be the only no kill animal rescue in Sublette County. Donations are deductible as allowable by Law. Tax ID# 74-3231075.
HEAR is located in Pinedale, WY and funded by private contributions, grants and local city and county funding. We work closely with both city and county animal control to make sure that all pets, whether owner relinquished or picked up as strays, find loving, forever homes. HEAR works to help all animals, behaviorally and medically challenged, not yet weened and senior pets, by working with other shelters, local veterinarians, our volunteers and foster families to help pets in need. We are a small, non-profit, all volunteer organization without its own facility and each animal is evaluated on a case by case basis.
