National all breed 501(C)(3) Disaster Relief Nonprofit – Since 2005
HPR’s mission is to rescue, assist, re-home and rehabilitate animals and people alike when Mother Nature strikes.
Between disasters we concentrate on regular day to day rescue work.
Our goal and vision is a NO KILL world where one day we do not have to rescue anymore.
DO NOT LEAVE THEM BEHIND – THEY ARE FAMILY.
What we do
We work towards disaster relief preparedness, rescue, and the education of pet owners so that NO animal will be left behind when disaster strikes.
Nationwide we assist with hands-on efforts in disaster areas and try to assist families (especially low income) with resources to save their pets when the worst happens.
We work long and hard towards a No Kill Nation, towards a world where one day there will be no more homeless pets.
We do this by implementing neighborhood spay – neuter programs as well as TNR (Trap Neuter and Release of feral cats) in different communities in South Florida with the goal of limiting the number of animals that enter county shelters.
We promote and educate the public about adopting animals vs. buying.
HPR strongly opposes breed discrimination, also called breed specific legislation or BSL, which arbitrarily targets particular dogs because of their appearance or perceived breed. We work with other rescues and individuals to educate the public so the “deed” is punished and NOT “THE BREED”.
We work nationwide together with other rescue groups to make sure that victims of dog fighting are given every chance to be adopted or placed with appropriate organizations.
We remember Michael Vick all too well and we will never forget…
We stand united with animal welfare groups nationwide in the fight to shut down puppy mills.
Since our inception with hurricane Katrina in 2005 our disaster relief team of volunteers has responded to both natural and man-made disasters.
Our volunteers are Fema certified, recurrent yearly hands on training and experience in the field in disaster zones, makes well prepared to handle any situation thrown to them.
HPR First Responders, are always on standby and ready to go when disaster strikes and a deployment call is made to them.
HPR has placed, rescued, assisted and reunited hundreds of pets from the disaster areas all over the country.
We give priority to assisting individual and grassroots organizations that are small, those that nobody helps and we work in the most hard hit areas.
Disaster relief volunteer deployment and assistance is only possible through donations from the public that help us to continue our mission.
