Logan’s Heroes Animal Rescue was founded by Chris Baringer, an experienced animal rescuer and also a trained police officer for Pennsylvania, in 2014 to help save the overwhelming number of unwanted commercial herding dogs and those in shelters for kill at high volume. The organization is entirely based on foster families for their dogs to give them the time they need to find the right partner for a permanent home. The rescue is named after a beloved deceased German Shepherd puppy named Logan who was raised by Baringer many years ago.
Baringer’s 20 years of animal rescue experience helped the nonprofit grow rapidly from December 2014. The organization went from dogs and cats to home organization to a 54-acre farm with the goal of keeping large animals safe – horses, cows and pot-bellied pigs.

The organization already has township approval to add another barn, indoor arena, arena and quarantine field for newcomers to prevent the spread of disease. Once these buildings are in place, the organization will seek a mental health professional to help them set up a veterans program using rescued farm animals as a form of therapy.

The goal of the project is to raise $ 100,000 to rebuild a dilapidated building on the farm to safely house more flat bellied pigs, add a fence and more fences for the rescues of three cows ( Ella, Jolene and Amber) and to build a new barn for Nemo, a very large market pig who survived a fire two years ago.

Donations are always welcome and necessary to continue the rescue efforts. Logan’s Heroes Animal Rescue is a completely voluntary organization and volunteers are always needed and welcome to help the organization grow.
