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.

Community Outreach

HELP the Animals is a community leader in the campaign to educate our community about the cruelty and dangers of permanently chaining dogs, animal abuse, neglect and the pet overpopulation crisis. If you are interested in arranging one of our outreach programs listed or creating a specialized program, please contact the shelter in advance for parties over 5 people.

Shelter Tours

We are excited to have the community at our facility. It is an opportunity to educate the public about shelter life for homeless pets, how training with positive reinforcement can modify animal behavior and quite possibly train future pet owners about pet health and care. Please plan and coordinate your tour with the shelter so we can accomodate your visit. Unexpected visits of large groups cannot be spontaniously arranged.

School Appearances

school appearances

HELP the Animals loves to visit at school events. We firmly believe that humane education, taught at an early age, leads to responsible pet ownership in the future. Our future leaders deserve the time and effort to understand about the other occupants of our planet earth. Animals are sentient beings in their own right who love, fear, have joy and sorrows. Animals also communicate and interact with each other in very subtle ways. We would love to review and present a variety of different options for a school appearance or event. Call the shelter to arrange one today.

Educational Events

educational events

If you would like us to attend an Educational Event with a booth and educational materials, call us, we'd love to attend. An educated community makes a better community! It would be a great way to educate the public about shelter life for homeless pets, the cruelty and dangers of permanently chaining dogs, animal abuse, neglect and the national pet overpopulation crisis.

Adoption Events

adoption events

If you would like us to attend an Adoption Event with a booth and even some furry critters, we are eagerly awaiting your invitation. Sometimes the perfect adoptive parent doesn't know that they need a pet until they see them. This is a great way to make that connection and we would love to have the opportunity to showcase some of our shelter animals.

Hospice/Nursing Home
"Make a Wish"

hospice nursing home visits

We make special appearances with animals who are well-mannered, affectionate and friendly for hospice, nursing home residents and ailing individuals. Are hope is to give the opportunity for an animal, to give the pure joy of innocence and unconditional love without judgement or prejudice, that sometimes only an animal can give.
