Closure Statement from Our Board of Directors

Dear Beloved Supporters,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the permanent closing of Haile’s Angels Pet Rescue (HAPR).

Haile's Angels Pet Rescue was founded by Dr. Linda McCollough when she first opened her veterinary clinic in the Haile Plantation Village in 1995. Dr. McCollough’s passion for homeless animals and dream of making a difference in the community led to HAPR growing and branching off to become a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2004. We have all passionately put our heart and soul into HAPR with every animal we have rescued and adopted.

While we are greatly saddened by the organization’s closure, our mission and vision will carry on. Our local community partners will continue HAPR’s legacy: helping animals become pets, helping pets become family. Over the last 18 years, Haile’s Angels has saved thousands of dogs and cats from homelessness and suffering. We would like to sincerely thank all our fosters, adopters, staff, volunteers and partners for their dedication and support. For nearly two decades you have each made this life-saving possible and it means the world to us.

Over the years, the mission of Haile’s Angels has resonated so deeply with our supporters because the Gainesville community already holds these same values dear. HAPR’s closing does not change that. Please continue to carry forward our mission by volunteering and supporting the other fantastic rescue organizations within our North Central Florida Community.

Our last day open to the public will be December 11th, 2022. After this date, we will no longer be offering any services. If you have any questions regarding foster animals or previously adopted animals, please contact the Humane Society of North Central Florida after that date.
