The mission is simple but the work is great. Hilaroo was formed to bring youth, who have been given up on,together with animals, who have been abandoned, together to help heal one another through Rescue, Rehabilitation and Responsibility Training. Every soul needs someone who cares and loves them.
Hilaroo will rescue animals who have been abandoned and rehabilitate them both physically and emotionally. We will also have youth who, whether by choice or circumstance, have been given up on by society and pair them with animals to help in that rehabilitation endeavor. The two souls will set out on a journey, together, to find healing. Then when the animals are ready, we will adopt them into forever homes. Through their time at the foundation, youth will be given responsibility training so they may go out into this world to make it a better place for themselves.
What a privilege it was to partner with you all in working with these precious animals and kids. We were amazed by the powerful role that the dogs played in helping the children to open up, bond and process their stories.

Don’t be afraid! Your new family will be really good to you but you have to listen to what they tell you. You’re cute and nice. Everyone will like you. Be yourself.

Traveler, Sorry if you only understand “woof” but I will do my best so when you have to go to a new home you should know that it is hard to move to a new house but if they adopted you they must love you.
