Natalie Owings, Animal Concerns and Facilities Advisor, is the Founder and Director of Heart and Soul Animal Sanctuary in New Mexico, a 130-acre Sanctuary which is home to some 100 dogs and farm animals.Natalie grew up on a ranch in New Mexico, and has witnessed animal abuse since childhood.With more than 25 years of animal rescue work to her credit, she became depressed by the plight of animals in conventional shelters, and created Heart and Soul, a progressive, ‘cage-less' no-kill refuge.
A graduate of New York University, Natalie has also attended the University of Munster in Germany, and has studied animal behavior and animal abuse investigation at the University of Missouri School of Law and the American Humane Association in Salt Lake City.
In addition to her extensive experience in the care of dogs, donkeys, and other farm animals, Natalie has particular expertise with ducks, geese, chickens, and turkeys.She operates successful adoption and education programs from her unique Sanctuary, where she lives full-time with the animals in her care.
Ms. Owings is a continuing source of essential information, perspective, and guidance to the Directors of UNICORN-BUTTERFLY PROPHECY.Given her decades of experience, and the many areas of endeavor which are shared by both organizations, she is truly an indispensible ally and friend.

Heart and soul, fur and feathers for this animal rescue organization [cached]

To listen to the Road to Rescue interview with Heart and Soul founder Natalie Owings on Animal Radio Network, click here.

Natalie Owings is the sanctuary's founder, fundraiser, groundskeeper, and caretaker. (And yes, any one of those on its own is a full-time position.) An animal lover since childhood, Owings spent much of her adult life "unofficially" rescuing dogs. She became intricately involved with municipal shelters around New Mexico, but frustrations with the way the organizations were run, and what she considered misguided goals, led her to open her own sanctuary for needy animals.
In 1997, Heart and Soul became an official, government-recognized, nonprofit organization. And though the work can be physically grueling and emotionally wrenching, Owings has never looked back.
Always a place to call home
They dogs live in the main house with Owings - new mothers have their own private quarters - and are free to come in and out as they please.
No question, Owings is the matriarch here. She's tall and slender with a sort of detached nobility about her. Her attitude about the many medications she dispenses, the lack of reliable volunteers, and even the difficulty of fundraising for such a large operation is all very matter-of-fact, very practical. And there is an added hardness to her voice when she talks about the cruelty she is regularly exposed to.
I'm sick to my stomach when she describes the starving, beaten animals who miraculously make their way to her sanctuary. Or when she tells me about a "game" prevalent in the southern part of the state in which young men deposit their dogs on the side of the road - and then attempt to hit them with their cars.
But when I notice a photo on her desk of a particularly soulful looking terrier mix, she looks away and tells me she can't talk about him. Owings reassures me that the story's outcome is a happy one, but she can't bring herself to relive it. In so many of the animal advocates I talk to, there is a layer that never toughens up, that remains forever raw. I'm amazed that anyone can do this sort of work, day after day, year after year.
As we finish the interview and I gather my things to go, a young girl and her mother - volunteers - arrive to spend some time with the sanctuary's nursing mothers and their pups. It's heartening to see first hand that Owings is not alone in her pursuit to create better lives for these animals.
Call Natalie Owings at 505.757.6817 for details and to make arrangements.
