HPAN is able to assist local verified rescue groups with funds for their rescue efforts because of the generous donations of our network supporters. Rescues must be located in Anderson County, its bordering counties, and Blount County of East Tennessee. Official organizations (with 501C3 status) that would like to be considered for rescue partnership can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the vetting process.
