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!
IMG_7841 IMG_7871Dandee and Dino are beautiful friends who would like to travel on to their forever home together. Two peas in a pod, they are. Dandee (cream color) and Dino (black and tan) are 12-year old Chihuahuas that find themselves without a home. They are very sweet and loving dogs. Both love to go outside, take a walk and bask in the sunshine. They love all things cuddly and cozy and hope for plenty of love. Dino has just had a dental. Both are vet checked and in good health. If you are interested in bringing home these two dogs, please let us know!
