During daily rounds, staff members from the medical, behavior, training and enrichment, and animal care teams visit each pet in HARP’s care to assess their well-being and evaluate their individual needs.
This includes reviewing medical treatment plans and distributing veterinary-prescribed medications.
Rounds are also an opportunity for staff to learn more about each animal’s history and personality.
Every month, HARP provides donated pet food and essential supplies to pet owners in need through Ellie’s Pet Food Pantry and Ellie’s Attic to help keep beloved pets in their homes.
Assistance with these essentials is the most requested form of aid at HARP, where demand for these programs has grown 200% in the last two years.
In 2022, HARP gave away 80,000 lbs. of food to hungry pets through Ellie’s Pet Food Pantry. In 2023, HARP founded Ellie’s Attic, through which pet families could obtain supplies such as leashes, collars, and crates at no cost.
