Our vision is to provide a harmonizing environment for animals and humans to interact, to
support the continued mission of other non-profit animal organizations enabling a “no kill”
philosophy, and to enhance a culture of unconditional love for animals.

Life at Harmony

Cat Family

Harmony Rescue provides lifelong care for 3 cats, and is expanding care for short term cats. There are two catteries: Kitty Castle 1 and 2; with all sorts of carpet trees, cat walks, and screened-in porches for fresh air. All other cats/kittens are in our foster care network.


Dog Family

Sam, Joey, Katie girl, Annalee, and Carly are special needs dogs. Each has a very unique personality. As they continue their journey of building trust, they will live their lives out with us unless they find the right owners; humans that will take care of them and accept the time to work with them. 


Horse Family

Lucy and Maggie complete the Harmony herd. Both horses are sponsored and are living their life out at Harmony Rescue. If you need assistance to rehome your horse, search "horse rescue in Virginia".


Donkey Family

Jenny is doing great and has settled into being the queen donkey at Harmony Rescue. Jenny believes she rules the farm.


Little Animals Family

Harmony Rescue occasionally takes in rabbits, gerbils, guinea pigs and chinchillas. We currently have Charlie (chinchilla) who loves his head scratched, dust baths, raisins, and sticks. We also have two Guinea Pigs.
