Please use the contact form below to send us a message. Please note that we are inundated daily with numerous varying requests and we simply cannot reply to all of them. Read below to be sure you are sending us all the info we need for your request.  If we can help you, we will be in touch with you. Thank you for your understanding!

Request to surrender your animal to HAPR:

By design, we do not have any open kennels in our facility. Our kennels are always filled to max capacity with animals who were at risk of being euthanized in various local county animal shelters so we brought them in to our program. However, our policy is “Once and Angel, always and Angel” and accordingly we do accept animals back who have been previously been adopted from our program. If you are a previous adopter and are considering surrendering your Haile’s Angel to us please fill out this form for cats or this form for dogs and we will be in touch with you. Unfortunately, we cannot accept animals from the public who have not been adopted from us. Thanks for your understanding and support.

Request to volunteer at HAPR:

If you would like to volunteer with us, please fill out an application at After submitting your application you will receive and email with information about when and where to attend your orientation.

Thank you so much for thinking of us. As a non-profit, fundraising is the lifeblood of our life saving efforts. That said, we are stretched very thin and must be selective about the fundraisers we participate in. Please use the form below to send us more info on your idea/opportunity and please include date, how you will market the fundraiser, expectations for HAPR (what our responsibilities would be), and estimated amount you expect to raise through the fundraiser.
