support nhpr through donations


donations power our work

At NHPR, we operate strictly through donations, as we do not receive government or county funding for this critical work. In rescue, we are 100% responsible for transporting shelter animals (sometimes cross-country) here to Michigan to the homes of our passionate fosters, covering the cost of medical care (which varies greatly depending on how much support an animal needs), getting our fosters key needs like food, crates, and more. 

But it's absolutely worth it, because we make a difference in the lives of animals. The animals who find us don’t have a voice and can’t help themselves - they need your help. There are several ways you can help NHPR, whether it's giving of your time, resources or a monetary donation. It all helps!

more ways to donate


sponsor a pet

Our mission is to find each animal a loving forever home where they will enjoy life to its fullest. However, some of our animals come to us with medical or social conditions that prolong their stay here or make it harder for them to be adopted. We never turn our back on these animals. Rather, we strive to give them all the love in our hearts. While we have an endless amount of love to share, money is often in short supply. We ask those of you who cannot bring a pet into your homes at this time, or for those whose homes are already filled with dogs to please consider sponsoring one of our long-term animals. Sponsorship can be a one-time donation or a monthly give. Either way, you will be helping us provide for lovable companion animals who can really use your support.


amazon wish list

NHPR depends on donations from sponsors and supporters just like you!  We have an Amazon "Wish List" that can be used as you determine how you can help. Items range from small items like toys, bones, and leashes, to larger items like crates, and even key medical necessities like flea & tick preventatives, grooming supplies, and so much more. Not only do we go through food, cleaning supplies, and pet necessities like crazy, but we support each and every one of our fosters with any and all equipment they may need - it all adds up fast! There's no better feeling than showering our shelter dogs with the things they've been missing out on, and our Wish List is a great way to make that dream come true.
