Great news! HSPPR has received our second 4-star rating (the highest possible ranking!) in a row from Charity Navigator. According to Charity Navigator, only 26% of charities have received at least two consecutive 4-star evaluations! This prestigious 4-star rating indicates HSPPR adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.

At Foothills Elementary School, art teacher Ellen Enger has come up with a creative way to raise money for homeless pets in the community and teach her students about responsible pet ownership at the same time. To honor February as Responsible Pet Ownership Month, the 66 students of Enger’s kindergarten art class as well as 77 3rd grade art students constructed and painted papier-mâché cat and dog piggy banks, then distributed them around the Rockrimmon area to collect donations for HSPPR during the month of March.
