Featured Pets

Shilo is a very special kitty! She is a very sweet girl and is a pretty mellow cat in her foster home IMG_7181where she lives with other cats. Shilo seems to be born with the unfortunate trait of bad teeth. She has already had a dental and had 17 teeth removed. Goodness sakes! She did not get the cavity free sticker as a kitten! Shilo is looking for a forever home that will love her and spoil her – and keep track of her dental health. Helping Hands Rescue will include her next dental with her adoption. We understand this is a significant financial undertaking. Shilo’s foster tells us she is a little shy but blossoms with patience and love. If you are interested in adopting Shilo, please fill out a cat application

20170120_132542Nicole is such a sweet kitty with a real dislike of adoption events. We are hoping to find this pretty girl a home without her ever having to experience the stress of another Petco-day. Her foster Mom tells us she is very loving and affectionate and will make a wonderful companion. She would prefer a quieter home – not a ton of ruckus. Nicole is about 1 year old, has been a Mama and is fine with living with other cats. She is now spayed and vaccinated and ready for her forever home!

 Nova is a special needs Chi with a sweet heart and a lovely disposition. Nova has img_3982Hydrocephalus – a condition that affects Nova’s brain. Her symptoms are not as severe as some we have seen but she does exhibit a “spinning” symptom. She acts as if she gets a dizzy spell, spins and straightens herself out. Nova is 2 years old and loves to go for walks and rides in the car. She is currently living in a foster home with other dogs and cats and all is well. Her foster Mom is working on house-training. If you are interested in adopting Nova, please fill out an adoption application above. Thanks!
Lucky’s past was full of sadness but you would never know it when you spend some time with this fun loving guy. He is full of joy and love. Lucky is smart and eager to please. He sticks close to his person and would make a very loyal companion. Lucky loves to play fetch and is very playful. Lucky is well behaved and is lovely to have around the house. He is crate-trained, house-trained and a good boy! We do not know Lucky’s history with other pets. At this time, he is not interacting with other pets in his foster home.  Lucky is a big boy with a big heart and deserves to know what a forever family feels like. Lucky is about 4 years old, neutered and vaccinated. If you are interested in adopting this loveable guy, please fill out an adoption application above. Thanks!
