Putting your Donations To Work
Food & Supplies
Each year we provide thousands of bowls of food to feral cats and pets in need.
Not one pet should ever lose their life due to lack of funds for medical care. Our Angel fund gives pets the life-saving care they need.
It's tragic pets are destroyed simply because there are not enough homes. Our spay/neuter programs prevents additional unwanted pets & save thousands of lives each year.
Providing Care to Pets with
For over 20 years A Helping Paw has been working with pets who were either born with or developed neurological physical disabilities.
We call them our little 'troopers' . Often people feel so sorry for them and say they should be put down. True they have disabilities, BUT don't tell them that, they have no clue!
We have dedicated ourselves to helping these special pets to help their true personalities blossom!
A Helping Paw Humane Society was founded in 1998 with one goal in mind...to work with the community to end the destruction of innocent pets by providing valuable no-kill solutions for a brighter future.
"When my neighbor was going to throw two kittens in the woods I was horrified. I din't have the money to take them in, but I knew I needed to do something. AHP provided me with two low cost spay certificates which made it possible for these two babies to become part of my family".
