Serving The innocent

Hannah's Heart is all about bringing joy and healing to those in need.  Our little dogs have been developed and raised for a very special purpose, to provide life-saving support to individuals living with disabilities, experienced trauma, or in need of an Autism Support Dog/Psychiatric Support Dog.  We've assisted children facing  trauma as a result of grief, PTSD, abuse, or illness.  At Hannah's Heart, we offer scholarships and adoption assistance for families in need of an Autism Support or Psychiatric Support dog, as well as providing Courtroom Facility dogs to accompany a child in the courtroom when they testify.   Our program is designed to fit each individual's personal needs- whether they are looking for their own support dog, or would like to work with one of our Volunteer teams.  Volunteers and their therapy animals help empower child victims by accompanying them into a courtroom, a deposition, or counseling.

Helping Children Take a Stand

Helping justice actually be served by giving children the courage to find their voice and share their stories to help make this world a safer place for themselves and others.   if your child is in need of one of our support dogs,  we are here to serve.

The Truth Will Set You Free

No one wants to go through this or talk about it, but in the end Truth is a higher vibration than lies. Help us serve the cause of truth and justice for those who have been hurt. Truth takes the power out of the abuser’s hands and puts it back into your child and your family.

Fear Stops Here

You will get through this.  The pain isn't over yet, but the opportunity to end the fear is here right now.   You don't have to be alone when you tell your truth in court, with the assistance of one of our Courthouse Dogs by your side, you will never be alone.  You've been through experiences that are not your fault.  And we understand how overwhelming and frightening it is to have to go to court and tell  strangers about your traumatizing experience.  

You are not alone, you will be taking the stand with a loving companion by your side.  If you feel afraid or nervous, your companion is there to pet and touch, and they will support you through the whole ordeal, and your truth will be heard.  

And now the healing can begin...

This is what Hannah's Heart is all about.  The beautiful bond between a child and dog.  That magical connection that truly heals hearts and changes lives.  

Why  Habibi Bears?

They are raised for this specific purpose.  Their intuitive nature makes them the perfect dog for this important role of supporting a child with Autism or in need of psychiatric support in the courtroom.  

About  Hannah’s  Heart

Supporting children and their families is our passion.  As survivor's of our own family tragedy that ended up in the court system, we not only understand the need for this loving support that only an animal can provide, but we have been in your shoes.  After many years of healing, we felt it was time to assist other families as they navigate the court process.  

Based in Washington State, Hannah's Heart is a 501c3 non profit organization that donates  purpose bred Habibi Bear puppies for children in need and provides volunteer teams to accompany your child in the courtroom. The volunteers and their dogs help to empower child victims of abuse by escorting them into the courtroom where the Courtroom Facility Dog sits with the child while they testify. If the child feels afraid, they have their loving companion nearby to pet and lean on through this experience. Many children may otherwise be too afraid to speak in court, but with their support dog by their side, they have the courage to speak their truth. 

Our very special Courtroom Dogs  have been evaluated and they do not react to loud noises, sudden movement, or other distractions. Their focus is to be an energetic support and empowering friend to the child. 

Our teams are also available to sit in during depositions, therapy sessions, police interviews  or any situation where a child would need this loving support of the calming presence of our dogs.  Our handlers sign a confidentiality agreement to ensure all statements remain confidential.

The Hannah's Heart Courtroom Facility dogs are available for all children (adults too!) needing support.  

Creating a New “Happily Ever After”

We're taking a stand.  The world needs a safer place for victims and their loved ones.  By speaking their truth, children can begin the long healing process.  Our volunteers and our dogs are here to hold your hand through this entire process.
