BRENTWOOD -- If you want to help animals that need loving homes but aren't sure how to go about it, a local rescue group has the answers.

Homeless Animals Response Program will hold a workshop March 2 for anyone interested in finding out what he or she can do.

In addition to the obvious -- fostering kittens and puppies -- HARP representatives will discuss the administrative-type tasks that it needs volunteer help for such as filling out paperwork and computer data entry.

The meeting will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Melo's Pizza and Pasta, 6580 Lone Tree Way, Brentwood.

RSVP by calling 925-431-8546.

More information about HARP is available at www.harp-rescue.org.
