Who We Are

A group of animal lovers from Poland living in Chicago, Illinois made it a mission to help animals in their motherland and in the neighborhoods they live in now. With the help of their family and friends, they founded Helping Hearts for Animals Foundation, Serce dla Psa, a charity organization to help animal shelters in Poland and Chicagoland. Serce dla Psa raises money to provide resources including food, medicine, and supplies directly to animal shelters in need.

Everyone within Serce dla Psa are volunteers. 100% of the money raised goes to the animals in need.

Founder: Mariola Ptasinski 

Board of Directors: Bozena Buniowska, Ewa Jakubik (Treasurer), Wioletta Mazur,
