Please join us in our efforts to give all our animals the care they need and love they deserve.

Donation Progress


As we celebrate HARP’s 150 years of championing animal welfare, you have a special opportunity to help us continue making a difference. On our Day of Giving (D.O.G.), your donation will have double the impact thanks to generous donors matching gifts up to $80,000!

Each year, HARP places over 4,500 homeless animals into loving homes and treats more than 6,000 animals in our medical centers. Through Ellie’s Pet Pantry, we distribute over 40,000 pounds of food to families in need, helping them keep their pets in loving homes. Additionally, we treat and release over 4,000 injured or orphaned wildlife back into their natural habitats. Yet, there is always more to be done.

By donating today, you can make your generosity go even further, supporting both domestic animals and wildlife, and the people who love them. Join us and see your contribution make twice the impact!
