As of November 8, 2023, we've fixed * 1293 * cats this year! We‘ve exceeded our goal of 1200 for 2023! Thanks to all who helped make life better for 1261 cats!
Our thanks, on behalf of the cats, for the generous donations that enabled the cats to receive a $5000 match grant. It is only through your help that the cats were able to get the full $10,000 to pay for their surgeries. To all who gave, a huge thank you and best wishes for a happy holiday season!
Rescued as a feral sixteen years ago, Midnight was an amazing companion to his adopter, and we all share her grief in the loss of the magnificient creature. As a skilled TNR feral cat advocate, she blessed Midnight through humane trapping and then adoption. His adopter on her own has trapped 66 cats, and reports each one is forever etched in her memory. Blessed by this creature’s companionship, she in turn has blessed other cats in Midnight's situation with her gifts. Those gifts have helped us to spay many > save even more. Thanks to Midnight's life, we are beating back feline suffering and overpopulation, especially among feral cats. We'll be doing our next scheduled spay day in memory of this handsome Tuxedo cat. Watch for that date!
Why not put down your device for at least five minutes right now and hold something live like a precious pet? No telling when they will be gone from your arms.
Lift up your eyes from your phone to see the great beauty of the Earth, and then give thanks for the blessings known as pets.
Cats are just about the most prolific reproducers on the planet.
If a stray cat shows up at your house, get him or her fixed. Call your vet THAT DAY to schedule.
Even if the cat is already bred, fixing her right then to avoid a situation like this photo is the most humane action.
If you cannot afford to fix your cat, we'll likely be able to get him or her fixed for you at low cost of maybe even free. But call us when there is ONE cat please. A pregnant cat shows up at your home, we can fix her quickly. But if you insist the world needs more cats and allow her to deliver, that will cost 5-8 times more!--if she survives pregnancy and delivery and a few kittens live too. Unless you can pay that, consider the consequences of not fixing your cat, letting it get to this degree of overpopulation, which is an economic disaster for an owner or a charity like ours, and a frightful painful mess for the cats.
We made more progress against feline overopulation and suffering with a spay day on Sunday October 1! The cats send their thanks to all the volunteers and the veterinarian who helped them live happier and healthier lives! If you can help us help more cats, like these who live with a family in a tent, please call 662-292-0922. We need funds and volunteers!
"Our thanks to HARP! There is no way we would have been able to get them fixed without HARP!" exclaimed this family.
HARP fixed these cats who live with a family that lives in a tent.
Greatest THANKS to Aurora Pharmaceutical for their generous donation of this topical that will reduce feline suffering from fleas, ear mites, heart worms, and other internal parasites! What a blessing this is to be able to send our patients and feral cats back to their homes with parasite management applied! Made in the USA, Barrier® is equivalent to Advantage Multi®, but at a fraction of the cost. Please support the compassionate team at this animal welfare conscious company by asking your vet about Barrier® for your dogs and cats! Visit aurorapharmaceutical.com to learn more.
We've been invited to create a Charity Registry at Walmart.com. On the Registry we've listed basic items like cat food, litter, bedding, scratching pads, toys, flea topicals, etc. Visit Walmart.com, click on Registries, click on Spark Good, and enter Homeless Animals Relief Project. Items you choose will be delivered to us and distributed to cats in need, typically those living with the poor who struggle with funds to purchase cat food, etc.
Our thanks to everyone who made it possible for us to fix the 1,000th cat on 9/13/23!

This exquisite jeweled artwork was created by Sharon, one of our long time volunteers. She's generously donated it to help cats! Made from those earrings and necklaces and jewelry pieces we've all lost, and lots more fanciful but beloved costume jewelry that was lost or found or donated, this is a stunning addition to your home or business decor. It is just about guaranteed to make you and others smile every time you feast your eyes on it — holidays or not. It measures 18.5" x 22.5" and will attract eyes and admiration wherever it is displayed. Sharon titles it Pear Tree, because it has one pear on it and about 30+ pairs of jewels too.
We'll be offering it up for bidding soon, please BOLO for this treasure and be prepared to make a big generous offer because 100% of the winning bid goes to help cats. Thanks again to Sharon for offering her talents and this labor of love to help less fortunate cats.
We've started working on two different large feral and homeless cat colonies who need help. We got 33 cats fixed August 7, 8, but there are more to be done. If you are able to help trap and transport please call 662-292-0922. If you are not able to help, please consider a donation. No cat can choose not to breed, only we can do that for them. These are photos of some of the cats you'll be helping!
Thanks to the volunteers who organized this labor of love to get 25 cats gathered up, herded into carriers ,and transported to surgery! If you've ever tried to get your cat to the vet, you know that can be challenging in itself even when not multiplied by 25! Litters prevented, lives saved, homes more secure now that there will be no litters.
We fix cats fast so our funds go fast. Remember that no cat has ever made the choice not to breed or litter. Only WE can make that choice for them. Please consider a donation to help us stop litters. Most kittens in our area are born outdoors, where their death rate is about 75% (nih.gov) from trauma, predation, and disease. Please help us stop this unimaginable suffering with a donation today. Use Venmo (HARP1), CashAPP ($HARP0922) or pay.homelessanimalsreliefproject.org! Or scroll down for a PayPal link.
Getting ready for anesthesia, surgery, and freedom from breeding!
Working at our favorite clinic, we fixed 24 cats, one of whom required immediate surgery to remove an eye lost to trauma. Our thanks to all the volunteers and one fabulous vet for improving the lives and reducing the overpopulation and suffering of these 24 cats today. Thanks to all who gave to make this freedom and improved health available to these cats!
Patients at our July 9 2023 spay day are recovering!
Your gift goes to help fix cats and kittens living with the poor, and feral or free-roaming cats. A benefactor pays our modest administrative costs.
