Our Mission

Our vision is to help create a vibrant, animal welfare-focused community by improving the lives of homeless pets and the residents of North Central Florida and beyond. We are committed to rescuing dogs and cats, with a focus on challenged animals and animals with jeopardized welfare, providing them with excellent veterinary care and educating the community in order to place new family members into loving, forever homes.

Our values are COMPASSION—to treat animals with care, ethics and kindness; EDUCATION—to promote education and awareness of animal welfare and husbandry; and SERVICE—to serve the animals in need of help in and around our community.


By temporarily opening your home, you provide help and love to one animal and provide space at our shelter for another in need.


Our volunteers are a tremendous help to the animals and we really appreciate the assistance. We operate 7 days a week, 365 days a year.


We are so appreciative of the generosity of our donors. Click the button below to learn about the various ways you can donate to the angels.

About HAPR

Haile’s Angels Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps unwanted animals find forever homes.

Our mission is to help homeless and unwanted animals throughout North Central Florida and to stop healthy, adoptable animals from being needlessly euthanized. We achieve this goal through advocating for the welfare of companion animals through spay/neuter initiatives, safe adoptions, and education programs.

Maddie’s Fund

With the help of Maddie, we continue to aid animals locally in addition to the 4,000 animals we have already helped. In 2016 we had a live release rate of 99%, this was calculated by dividing the number of live outcomes by the number of live intakes.
