“Still much is needed to help the horses and dogs. Medical, food, and more,” Heart said, urging her followers to follow PAWS, a non-profit, anti-animal cruelty organization, to see how else they can help.

In December 2019, Heart teamed up with PAWSsion Project, a Bacolod-based, non-profit dog rescue group, to build a home for Kuya Jun and his many pets. 

In June 2019, she announced that she would be building her own animal sanctuary in Sorsogon, where rescued animals could receive services such as spaying, neutering, tagging, and immunizations. – Rappler.com
