Our mission and purpose is to rescue dogs and cats that need help. These pets may be homeless, unwanted or neglected. We then provide them with veterinary care, proper nutrition, socialization, training and love. Ultimately, it is our goal to find a great home for every pet that comes our way.
HCPAP is a 501(c)3 non-profit rescue run by a group of dedicated volunteers. Founded on October 1, 1999, we have specialized in dog rescue, however, we rescue cats sometimes, too. We are not a shelter but a foster organization. All of our dogs and cats do not live in a shelter; they live in the homes of our volunteers. So, they get to enjoy beds, couches and backyards while they wait for their furever family.
Because we are a foster organization there is no facility for you to visit to meet our adoptable pets. Instead, our volunteers go to PetSmart every other Saturday with their foster dogs and cats. This is the only time that our pets are available for you to meet them. During the rest of the week they are at the private homes of our volunteers. Please check our Facebook page or contact us prior to visiting to be sure we will be there.
Important note: Not all of our dogs and cats go to PetSmart each time, so if there is a particular dog or cat you are interested in please call or email us first.
