Ways You Can Help the Animals...

"I always thought someone should do something about that, then I realized, I am that someone."

Donate

HELP the Animals relies solely on donations, fund-raisers and grants to be able to continue helping lost, neglected, abused and abandoned pets in Wayne County, Indiana and beyond. All funds provided by donations will help keep our doors open and continue providing shelter to our furry residents. We do not receive assistance from any city or county government agencies and rely on your generosity to be able to help animals in need. Please donate generously and make a difference in the lives of shelter animals.

Financial Donations

Our Wish List

Sponsor

Your monthly tax-deductable contribution keeps our doors open and able to provide veterinary care, food and shelter to all the animals in our shelter. By sponsoring an animal, kennel or cat cage, we have a more dependable way to gauge our ability to intake all the animals we possibly can.

Animal Sponsor

Sponsor a specific animal in need at the shelter.

Guardian Angel Sponsor

Sponsor a specific kennel or cat cage at the shelter.

Corporate Sponsorship

New Kennel Sponsorship

Volunteer

HELP is a volunteer based organization. We are always appreciative of our volunteers and have many opportunities for direct animal care, animal behavior/training, clerical help, building maintenance, and of course fund-raising.

Animal Behavior & Socialization

Are you looking to directly help a dog or cat in need? We need volunteers to help us with our mission and you can become directly involved with animal care, exercising, grooming or socializing the animals.

Shelter Administration

Don’t want to get your hands dirty? We are always in need of someone to help us with data entry, answering phones and general office help.

Foster Care

Open your heart and your home temporarily to the special needs of recovering animals, seniors, puppies and kittens that require extra love and care.

Fund-Raising

We have many events throughout the year and on-going fund-raising programs and projects that need man/woman power to keep us going. We also welcome the community to create their own fund-raisers that benefit the shelter.

Programs

Guardian Angel Sponsorship Program

Find out how you can make a difference in the life of an animal through our Guardian Angel Sponsorship Program. All sponsorship proceeds directly help, heel, love and care for a local homeless pet temporarily residing at HELP the Animals Shelter.
