Harley’s Hope Foundation
Harley’s Hope Foundation was created in the summer of 2010 following the loss of David and Cynthia Bullock’s dog, Harley, to cancer. The Bullocks, who took Harley through several months of chemotherapy in an effort to save her life, realized that many people don’t have the financial means to do everything they can for their companion animals. They decided to honor Harley’s memory by creating an organization to help pets and their people deal with unexpected hardships – Harley’s Hope Foundation.
Harley’s Hope Foundation was created on the premise that no companion or service animal should suffer needlessly, and that the bond between human and animal should be preserved and protected in the face of life’s challenges. Our foundation’s ambition is to provide a holistic and prevention-based approach to alleviate animal hardship and to establish ourselves as proactive leaders in the welfare of animals and the human lives they impact.
Our purpose is to ensure low income pet parents and their companion or service animals remain together when issues arise. The goal in doing so is to prevent at-risk animals from being surrendered or falling victim to euthanasia for treatable conditions and behaviors.
