needHelping Hands Rescue has been very successful in helping animals in our community.  That success is possible because of our incredible team of volunteers.  We could not do the work we do without them.   If you are an animal lover and would like to help make life better for  our area’s unwanted and abandoned pets, we really want to hear from you.
