Online or via pickup, we provide organic, eco-friendly, and chemical-free products, plus items to beautify your home and spirit. As a small volunteer-run nonprofit, we can't compete with the pricing at large stores. However, having no paid staff allows all our net proceeds to fund cancer research and  treatment for working dogs. Sit, stay & shop for what truly matters — health, home, happiness and healing.

 

We believe many health issues arise from preservatives, sugars, heavy processing, antibiotics, growth hormones, and harmful insecticides and chemical fertilizers in food production. Although higher costs are the initial objection to going organic, many remain unaware of the critical differences between organic and non-organic products. The fruits and vegetables our parents ate when they were growing up were far more nutritious than what we are serving our children. And studies have shown that pesticides, fungicides, and the chemical compounds used to prolong shelf life for non-organic fruits & vegetables, are cancer causing and sources of immune system damage.

We utilize a 100% organic home-cooked canine diet featuring fresh meats, whole grains, eggs, vegetables, and fruits, similar to our own nutritional regimen. These basic food groups, so detailed by Drs. Pitcairn and Goldstein, are critical to good health. And, while some believe a dog’s diet should consist of only raw meat and bones, it is important to understand that wild canines get much needed nutrients from the stomach contents of their herbivorous prey — such as deer, who eat grains and berries.

Every dog surely deserves a treat — wholesome & healthy, human-grade organic ones, that is. Treats with NO added sugar, salt, chemicals, artificial flavors or excitotoxins. Treats that DO NOT contain potential allergens such as corn, soy, wheat, yeast, dairy products, or peanuts. And, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a treat that had healing qualities, so soothing a dog who is recuperating from a tummy upset or chemotherapy treatment? Well, that’s just what we have created with our Healing Hearts Organic Cookies, every ingredient certified organic & kosher as well.

There are absolutely no dog treats available today that can compare to these. Initially developed several years ago for a Golden who was very, very sick with inflammatory bowel disease and pancreatitis, it was a miracle that she lived through her ordeal. These were actually the only treats that she could have. No other dog treat out there has 100% organic and kosher certified ingredients. No treat out there has Active 15+ Manuka Healing Honey. No other treat has been specially formulated to be totally soothing and non allergen-provoking. Not only are our ingredients exemplary, but the companies providing these wonderful items are also beyond reproach.

 

I just opened up your gift and ate one of your awesome, delicious organic dog biscuits and I am howling to the full moon for more!!!Yummy!!!! Best dog biscuit I ever tried! My tail is wagging for more! Congratulations for such a beautiful, nutritious, organic, delicious creation! I will offer it to our patients along with your brochures. Dr. Allen Schoen

World renowned veterinarian, Dr. Schoen has authored: Kindred Spirits: How the Remarkable Bond Between Humans & Animals Can Change The Way We Live, Kindred Spirits-Healing Your Pet Naturally, Love, Miracles and Animal Healing, Complementary & Alternative Veterinary Medicine: Principles and Practice & Veterinary Acupuncture: Ancient Art to Modern Medicine.

The ingredients to these heart-shaped wonders are: organic milled whole oat flour, organic apples, organic whole rolled oats, organic oat bran, organic Active 15+ Manuka Healing Honey, organic Saigon cinnamon (5% oil content), and organic ginger. All of our organic whole oat ingredients come from USA based Grain Millers, the world's largest supplier of conventional non-GMO and Certified Organic oats and North America's premier oat milling and specialty whole grain company. And, our organic apples come from the orchards on the shores of the Great Lakes.

The wonderful aroma of these treats comes from their being loaded with quite potent & enticing freshly ground organic Saigon cinnamon. Bet you didn't know that smelling cinnamon can boost brain functions, performance and memory. And, as little as just one-half teaspoon of cinnamon daily can lower LDL cholesterol. Cinnamon also has a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes. In some studies, it has been shown to stop medication-resistant yeast infections. And, in a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon reduced the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells. In another study, patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week and could walk without pain within one month. Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz, authors of You: Staying Young: The Owner's Manual for Extending Your Warranty, advise folks to have one-half teaspoon of cinnamon daily.

Amazingly, cinnamon is also a natural food preservative, inhibiting bacterial growth and food spoilage. It actually fights E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices and other foods. And, it is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, calcium and other minerals. Learn more about some of the properties and benefits of our cookies’ ingredients here. 

And, please check out some incredibly awesome testimonials from some very special customers.



Individually cut, prepared in small batches & packaged by hand with love by Golden Mom Rochelle
NOTE: The higher price of these cookies is due to, first, the cost of the organic active 15+ manuka healing honey, an ingredient that cannot be found in any available edible (for either people or dogs). Second, due to my limited ability to do extended work with my hands, the cutting of cookies and necessary cooking and drying time significantly limits the number of these gems that can be produced. Please let us know if this is a gift and we will send it off with special wrapping and a gift card!
 

This unique treat recipe was specifically developed for a dog suffering with pancreatitis. It is truly a treat for those dogs who are dealing with compromised gastrointestinal systems or chemotherapy. Therefore, I have decided that if it is a medical problem that has prompted your order, you will now receive a refund for 20% of the cost. Just be sure to let us know about the medical issue in the comments section of the order.

Recently, I received an order from Linda, a repeat customer of healing hearts. But, I could not get them made right away due to needing new cookie sheets which were still in transit. And, I really was distressed about this when Linda wrote the following to me: "My wonderful Golden Jazz has a severe case of IBD (Inflammatory bowel disease) but she tolerates (and loves) your wonderful cookies."

This is joyful Jazz here to the left. Once I heard about Jazz, I mailed out a free bonus gift of the few Healing Hearts I had on hand from another order (actually from our stash for Golden Alfie). I filled one of my sweet sheer paw print organza bags with the 5-oz I had and mailed them off with a get well card. Jazz got her regular order as well within the week, of course. But, it made me feel so good to more immediately be able to reward her and her loving mom.

Woofin' Good Testimonials

The following story just touched our hearts here at the Land of PureGold. We get very few orders for these special cookies and so were somewhat concerned when repeated orders for several bags came from one individual. Since treats are special additions to the diet, therefore able to last a good bit of time, we wanted to be sure that they were being used correctly. So we wrote to this person and got this most marvelous response in return.

Actually,  the cookies are only for my 85lb. mixed breed dog who just turned 18-years-old. This dog is amazing. He acts like he is 6 or 7-years-old, chasing his  tail as well as rabbits. I had used up almost one bag when I decided to order  more. I figured they were freshly made so I just ordered more to always make  sure I had enough. My dog eats nothing but 100% organic food and vitamins. The  cookies are expensive, but nothing is too good for Brandy. He can't make the choices for himself so I have to make the best choices for him. I was giving  him organic bones by Organix, but then saw your cookies. I am familiar with the  amazing qualities of manuka honey. I actually taste tested the cookies before giving them to Brandy. They are not bad. I hope you never stop making them. So, take your time in making the cookies. I still have plenty.

I picked Brandy up off the streets almost 18 years ago when I was a patrolman. Poor thing was stuck in a thick briar patch. I ripped my uniform getting him out. I now head the crime scene unit and my old partner, who was with me at the time, is amazed that Brandy is still going. The vet said he was 4-months-old at the time. He had the worst case of mange the vet had ever seen. He only had hair on his head and the top of his back. I took him for mange treatments for 10 weeks and gave him good food and IN vitamins. All his hair grew back in a firey burnt orange. Brandy had a bout with pancreatitis a couple of months ago. I think it was from eating dirt. I have told my parents and brother to watch him carefully when he is outside. Brandy had kidney issues about 2½ years ago. Most of his functions were elevated. The vet said it was just from his age and there was nothing really to be done. Well, I cut his protein, added some different vitamins to his food, and went totally organic. All of his kidney functions are now in the normal range except I think the BUN and it's only 1 or 2 points away from normal. I also did not vaccinate him after he was about six-years-old. I have titers done on everything including rabies. He has had enough serum levels of protection for the past twelve years. I would have been jamming him with unnecessary boosters. I think it would have compromised his immune system. I feel that is also a reason he is so robust at 18. Anyway, I'm sorry to bend your ear. I always do this when talking about Brandy. I wish everyone took care of their pets the way I do. I'll look for that photo of Brandy that you requested.  — Kindest  Regards, Mike O'Brien, July 2008   


Bailey, my friend's soon-to-be14-year-old Golden Retriever, was diagnosed with cancer in October 2007 and has mostly been asymptomatic until this week.  We're hoping it's just a urinary tract infection. Since her diagnosis last year, I've been bringing her her favorite treats when I visit. She really loves your Healing Hearts treats. The only thing we've found she likes more are Harry & David Royal Riviera pears, but they're not in season yet.

Hi, Rochelle, I saw Bailey and her parents yesterday and am very happy to report that Bailey is a lot better after about a week of antibiotic pills.  We're still keeping our fingers crossed since there's still one set of lab results that haven't come back yet.

Anyway, Bailey's parents send their heartfelt thanks for the extra goodies you so graciously provided.  And Bailey eagerly inhales her Healing Heart treats whenever they're offered.

Let me get this cover off!

There it goes!

Hi Auntie Rochelle! — Thank you so much for the delicious cookies you baked for me. I absolutely love them! I smelled them as soon as my Mom opened the box, and I had to woof at her as she was taking way too much time gushing over the tin they came in. Once she finally opened them I went into a tail spin of happiness as she showed me how many cookies are packed into the tin! I showed them to my Grandma last night (she takes care of me while Mom is at work) and she said she will give me some during the day. That made me go wild!

Mom is really excited about the wholesome ingredients and loves the fact that they are so good for me. I don't really understand that part as I have been known to eat dirt when in the mood, but I do know they are scrumptious! Lots of Golden Kisses — 
Barley Mann, August 21, 2007


Hi Rochelle — I really appreciate the quick delivery and freebies. My Golden girls and boys absolutely love the cookies. They smell and taste wonderful. Of course I had to try one. I told my Mom about the cookies and honey. She ordered some and she can’t wait to get them for her Golden Retriever Rocky. I’m actually watching him for the week and have already tried out the cookies on him. Needless to say, they are a winner. — Rene' Howell, August 27, 2007


Hi Rochelle — We received your package today and Maggie and Simon just love their treats and their new organic toys! The tin of cookies is wonderful and you were so sweet to throw in all the extra samples. I can't get enough Golden stuff. — Janet Martino, October 13, 2007



I’m such a  proud furmom. These are my little guys, Bichon Frise, Olive, and Bichon, Maltese & Poodle mix, Buster. I just love them to pieces.

And, they just love your wonderful organic Healing Honey Hearts! It makes me feel better knowing they are good for them as well! It is truly very important what you feed your dogs.

Ingredient Properties and Benefits
Organic Milled
Whole Oat Flour,
Oats & Oat Bran
  Organic Whole oats contain an antioxidant and have a higher proportion of protein and fat than most other grains. A strength giving cereal, oats are low in starch and high in minerals such as potassium, phosphorus and silicon — making them good for bones and also connective tissues. And, rich in Vitamin B and a good source of iron, oats soothe the digestive system and cleanse the intestines of impurities.
Organic Apples   Organic Apples contain Vitamin C, potassium, phosphorus, chlorine, sodium, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, iron, fluorine, and silicon. Powerhouses of antioxidant activity, each apple has the effect of about 1500 mg. of Vitamin C. These antioxidants have many important health benefits, from reducing the odds of cancer and heart disease, to lowering cholesterol.

Scientific research has found that apples and apple juice contain a wealth of phytonutrients that have been found beneficial to health. A study conducted at Rochester, Minnesota's Mayo Clinic reported finding the "powerful antioxidant, quercetin, in apples and apple juice." Quercetin is one of the most potent antioxidant agents ever discovered, according to researchers. In the journal 'Nature', 2000, researchers at Cornell University reported that apple components had more antioxidant capability than a 1,500-milligram mega dose of vitamin C. "Scientists are interested in isolating single components, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, or beta carotene to see if they exhibit antioxidant benefits", says Dr. Rui Hai Liu, at Cornell University. "It turns out that none of those work alone. It's the combination of flavonoids and polyphenols [antioxidant phytonutrients found in apples] doing the work."

It's good to be choosy when picking apples. The USDA has identified 35 insecticides, fungicides, and weed killers sprayed on apples, even though the Environmental Protection Agency considers them hazardous. Tests by the Environmental Working Group show that these chemicals do show up in supermarkets, so it is especially important to choose an organic apple you can trust.
Organic Active 15+
Manuka
Healing Honey
  Organic Active 15+ Manuka Healing Honey is a raw honey from New Zealand’s pristine nature preserves. It is so beneficial that it’s classified as a Therapeutic Good in Australia. Thick and amber-colored, it has a barley-sugar flavor and very potent caramel aftertaste. Six weeks labor every year from wondrous honeybees produces this pure liquid gold. Active 15+ Manuka offers significant health-enhancing benefits, accounting for more than a 100-fold difference in potency between Healing Honey and all other honeys.

For six glorious weeks of every year, the wondrous honeybees of New Zealand’s nature preserves buzz among the wild and fragrant flowering Manuka trees. Carrying their precious treasure of Manuka nectar back to the hive, they fly thousands of miles and visit uncountable blossoms in their journeys. To the casual observer, this may appear to be a simple, mundane task. And at one level it is. At another level, however, it is truly miraculous. In their day-to-day work, honeybees literally sustain all of creation as they pollinate plants that produce oxygen and provide food for nearly every life form on the planet. Science still marvels at the honeybees’ ability to accomplish this phenomenal feat. While this contribution alone merits them a special place of honor, they also simultaneously create the sweetest, most enticing, most healing food known to humankind.

The amazing fruit of their six weeks’ labor is pure liquid gold — Healing Honey®. 100% Certified Organic Active 15+ Manuka Honey captured the attention of researchers and scientists when they discovered that this remarkable honey possesses a unique and highly beneficial characteristic not found in any other honey. This special Manuka factor offers significant health-enhancing benefits above and beyond the hydrogen peroxide enzymes and other valuable properties found in all raw honeys. It also accounts for the more than 100-fold difference in potency.

Only 2% of all Manuka honey is the rare Active 15+ Manuka Honey that scientific studies have found to be so therapeutic. Manuka honey is tested by independent laboratories to determine the level of its therapeutic, active compounds. Only Manuka honey that carries the Active 15+ designation has a scientifically tested and verified potency equal to that of a 15% phenol (carbolic) solution. Healing Honey’s confirmed 15+ activity level ensures that the powerful and proven properties of Active 15+ Manuka Honey are in every delicious and exquisite spoonful you eat.

Absolutely no chemicals, synthetics or antibiotics are ever used with these bees, in their hives or in our honey. After harvest, Healing Honey is meticulously tested to verify that it is free of over 160 chemical residues to ensure its organic purity. This not only protects you and the environment from any potential contamination, it also safeguards the astounding qualities and beneficial attributes of this liquid gold.
Organic
Saigon Cinnamon
(5% Oil Content)
  Organic Saigon Cinnamon is one of the world's most important spices. Saigon cinnamon, a rare and powerful variety, boasts significantly higher oil contents. The oil content in our recipe is at 5 percent. The higher the oil content, the more aroma and flavor. Cinnamon actually comes from the bark of trees in the evergreen family. There are several varieties of trees from which we derive cinnamon which are referred to as the "cinnamomum" family. Most of the cinnamon comes from trees of the "cinnamomum cassia" family. This is why you may hear the spice referred to as "cassia". In the industry, this term is used to distinguish between the cassia type of cinnamon and the Ceylon type of cinnamon. Cinnamon is graded on its content of essential oil. Therefore, cassia types of cinnamon, which average higher oil content than the Ceylon types, are rated superior by the cinnamon loving population.

The cassia group is native to China, Indo-China, and Indonesia. Unquestionably, the cinnamon best suited to American bakers comes from the cassia type of cinnamon. Saigon has a distinctly sweet flavor as compared to the Indonesian types. The color is darker than the Indonesian as well. Cinnamon has a long history of use in India and was first used medicinally in Egypt and parts of Europe, as far back as 500 BC. Traditionally, cinnamon was taken for colds, flu and digestive problems, like indigestion and diarrhea and it is still used in much the same way today. Cinnamon also helps to treat nausea and flatulence. Even the oil found in cinnamon has antifungal and antibacterial properties. In traditional Chinese Medicine, cinnamon is known as an energizing herb and is used to treat kidney conditions and asthma. Isn't it nice to know that something that tastes so good is also good for you & your dog?
Organic Ginger   Organic Ginger is the premium anti-nausea herb and is well tolerated by dogs of all ages. More importantly, ginger acts as a digestive tonic and relieves stomach, and intestinal gas. Ginger stimulates digestive juices and helps to expel worms. It's also great in helping to treat colds and sore throats.
