YOU can make a difference and save an innocent dog’s life!

As a private, volunteer-driven nonprofit organization, HAPPE receives no government funding and is heavily reliant on your tax-deductible donations and adoption fees to accomplish its mission of finding homes for lost and abandoned dogs.

The average cost for rescuing our dogs is $415, but some have medical conditions that cost a lot more. We have to keep our adoption fees affordable, so the $175 fee does not cover our costs for the dogs.

As an all-volunteer group, 100% of your donation goes directly to helping our dogs.

And believe us when we tell you – every dollar helps! So please consider making a donation today.
