Our transport program team has worked to save the lives of over 7000 pets who could not find local homes by moving them to "no-kill" shelters in other areas where adoptive homes are more plentiful.
We help rescuers and pet owners find placement for unwanted pets and for litters.
We work with local law enforcement to remove large animals from situations of abuse and neglect.
Your support and contributions are tax deductible and will enable us to improve the lives of many animals that desperately need our help.

We partner with other rescues and shelters to end the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable dogs, puppies, cats and kittens that cannot find local adoptive homes. On average, each year our organization helps 1,500 pets. Through our work, additional space is opened up in local Miss-Lou area shelters and rescues so that even more local pets can be helped. Transported pets receive spay/neuter surgery and a wonderful opportunity to find a loving home. Our organization follows national guidelines and best practices for humane care of sheltered pets and transport animals.
Do you enjoy shopping? Wonderful! At any given time, our organization is caring for 100 or more animals that are awaiting transport opportunities. Donating supplies is easy and your donations are greatly appreciated!
Interested in adopting a dog or cat? Great! Please call to schedule an appointment at HPR, or visit a local animal shelter - the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society, Concordia PAWS, Vidalia City Pound and other local shelters have beautiful and lovable adoptable animals that need a good home now. We work with these groups and individual rescuers to place pets that do not find local homes.
Each year we work to save around 1,500 animals with a small but very dedicated group of modestly paid animal care technicians. Our administrative staff and directors are all unpaid volunteers. There are no high salaries or administrative fees in our organization and all donations go directly to care for animals.
We are the very grateful recipients of a 2019 $10,000 grant from ASPCA that was used to help provide vaccines and other needed medications for transport animals. Funding for our primary transport van also originated from an ASPCA grant and this 2017 Ford Cargo van has helped our program become better able to save thousands of local pets.
