Help the Animals, Inc.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill animal shelter dedicated to providing a safe haven for homeless pets until they can be placed in responsible, loving homes.

Our Wish List

HELP the Animals is a non-profit organization that relies primarily on the generosity of people like you! Many of the items that we need to run the shelter day-to-day are things that people don't usually think of, so please take a look at the list below and bring what you can spare!

If you wish to purchase food for us, please purchase Hill's Science Diet Food and Treats. Hill's Pet Nutrition subsidizes our shelter with the Hills Science Diet shelter food program which provides a consistent healthy diet, therefore that is what we feed our animals. Thank you
