HAPPE (Homeless Animal Protection, Placement & Education) is a local, all-volunteer, non-profit dog rescue group started in 2002. We are dedicated to helping save innocent dogs that are in shelters, were found as strays, or whose owners can no longer care for them.

HAPPE does not have a facility and relies on an incredible group of fosters to provide a loving environment until we find each dog a forever home.

We not only work hard to match our dogs with the right home and family, but also educate dog owners & the public about responsible pet ownership. Every dog deserves a second chance. Will YOU be a HERO to a homeless dog?
