Gilbert is a very cute little Chihuahua and he needs a special home. GilbertIMG_1852 was born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia and hydrocephalus. This means he has less brain function than a normal dog. He is sensitive to new things, sudden movements and hectic situations. We would like to find him a quiet home. He is in good shape right now but the hydrocephalus could become worse, which would require surgery. Gilbert could live to be a old man or he could develop other complications. Gilbert is 2 years old, is neutered, vaccinated and is currently living with other dogs and cats. Please let us know if you are interested in adopting this sweet boy.
IMG_4827This beautiful cat is looking for her forever home. Belle loves to be pet! It was difficult to get her photo because she kept rubbing her cheeks all over the camera and the kennel corners. Belle came to us with her kittens. One black kitten, Sport, is still looking for his forever home. Belle is about 3 years old and her foster Mom tells us she is a little shy and quiet but very loving. Please let us know if this is the forever cat for you! Belle is spayed and vaccinated.

Oh, sweet little Zoey. This beautiful little dog needs a forever home! The Helping Hands Rescue folks think IMG_6742she is adorable and just about perfect! Zoey is somewhere between 8-10 years old and her eyes are just not what they used to be. She is mostly blind and does bump into things – especially when adjusting to a new home. Zoey is great with other dogs of all sizes and cats are fine too. She is house-trained, spayed and vaccinated. She is incredibly sweet and just loves to be close to her person. Zoey came to us with terrible teeth and we provided with her a veterinary dental day. She lost a few teeth but she will feel much better without sore teeth in her mouth. If you think you are able to provide this girl with a forever home, please fill out an adoption application. Thanks!
