About Us

Our Mission

Homeless Animals Response Program, or H.A.R.P, is an all volunteer animal welfare organization dedicated to serving far East Contra Costa County. We are working to end pet overpopulation through community education, spay and neuter programs, and adoptions.

HARP is transitioning to a community cat program. We assist caregivers by providing spay and neuter resources, trap loans, trap and recovery help. This assistance is given if we have the necessary volunteers and finances.

Our Vision

We are working to control the population of unwanted cats by finding homes for adoptable cats and spays and neuters of community cats. In order to reach our goal, we will collaborate with other animal welfare groups, area residents, veterinarians, schools, media and local governments.

  • End overcrowding of city and county animal services with unwanted pets
  • End pet abandonment
  • End the hundreds of colonies of unspayed and unneutered cats
