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.


Please keep all non-shelter animals outside. Inform staff of you needs once you arrive and they will page someone to assist you outside to the left of the entrance.

Puppy & Kitten Vaccinations

Puppies need a 3-series set of vaccinations that we can provide at the shelter.

$10 Vaccinations: Puppies Distemper/Parvo, Kittens Distemper under 3 months old.


$20 Microchips: Peace of Mind knowing your pet won't be put down in an open admission shelter: Priceless!

A resQ® Microchip (size of a grain of rice) is inserted into the extra skin on the neck. You can call the phone number or register your contact information online and can update this information for the life of the pet. If your animal is ever found by animal contol or put into any shelter, they will scan your animal for a chip and contact you immediately to retrieve your pet.
