The Helping Hands is another non-profit organization that provides volunteer services and fundraising for the shelter. The organization raises funds with raffles and activities like photos with Santa. The mission statement of the shelter is "We strive to match you with a companion that is suitable for you and your family's lifestyle." Finding your fur-ever friend will involve an application process and the facility does not allow same day adoptions.
Special attention is paid to the dynamics of the prospective placement with attention to the health of the animal as well as the needs of the dog for exercise and medical care. Foster placements are also offered for animals needing rehabilitation or socialization or for prospective owners who need more time to become acquainted. Their website links to Alfred's Lost Pet Site and offers options for donations. Reviews of the shelter describe it as clean and compassionate.
