Behind the Scenes

A Helping Paw inc. is a registered 501 (c) 3, volunteer  run organization. Here at A Helping Paw Humane Society, we see the value in every pet. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 1998, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress. No one person or organization can do it alone, thus the name A Helping Paw.


Besides the many life-saving programs we offer, we also provide FUREVER care to over 30 pets each and everyday. The majority of these pets were unable to be adopted and set to be  euthanized,  because of behavioral  or chronic health issues. Thanks to our dedicated care team of volunteers, their lives have been saved! No longer scared, stressed, hungry and alone, they now enjoy happy lives in enriched environments with loving caregivers. 

As we update our site over the next few months you will have the opportunity to learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.

We thank you for sharing in our passion, and changing the world one pet at a time. 

From all the volunteers at AHP

Show off your pet!

We love sharing photos of pets we've helped. Our donors and hard working members love to see all those adorable furry faces! 

If you received services through one of our many 'community' programs please, please send in your photos! It's a great way to thank all of our members, donors and veterinarians  for their kind support!

When you submit a pet photo to us, you are giving permission for us to use your photo on our web sites and in our newsletters. We only post the pets name and town, unless a photo credit would like to be added. 

Unless the photo was taken by us, all ownership remains with the person submitting the photo. 

Absolutely, no text or photos are to be taken from our Facebook pages and web site without our permission to do so is a violation of copyright laws.
