Committed to saving all adoptable pets

Hoofbeats & Pawprints Rescue (HPR) is an independent not-for-profit animal welfare organization serving Southwest Mississippi and Central Louisiana. We assist, support and encourage other non-profit agencies involved in rescue, placement, transport, education and the prevention of animal cruelty. HPR is the host organization for Natchez Transport Program and Miss-Lou Rescue.

About Us

Natchez Transport Program


Our transport program team has worked to save the lives of over 6500 pets who could not find local homes by moving them to "no-kill" shelters in other areas where adoptive homes are more plentiful.   

Miss-Lou Rescue


We help rescuers and pet owners find placement for unwanted pets and for litters.   

Large Animal Rescue


We work with local law enforcement to remove large animals from situations of abuse and neglect.

About Us

Sharing the Love Through Natchez Transport Program


 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.     Through our work, additional space is opened up in local shelters and rescues so that 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.

We Need Lots of Stuff!

Donate Needed Supplies

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!
