Adoption Event Volunteers are critical towards finding loving homes for our rescue cats and dogs! They assist potential adopters in finding their new best friend as well as promote responsible pet care. Adoption Events are located at Petsmart, off Archer Road, from 11-5pm every Saturday. First shift is 11-2 and second shift is 2-5 - volunteers are able to sign up for either shift as long as spots remain available.

Between walking dogs, socializing cats, assiting with puppies or helping to break the event down there is always something to do! We also have a fabulous Jr Volunteer program welcoming any age (with an involved guardian present) to come volunteer with us!

Helping Hands also welcomes groups of 10-16 (max 8 per shift; must commit to filling both shifts) to help during events. It is a wonderful way to become active in the community for any organization! Please email in advance to coordinate any volunteer groups!

The experience of sending over 1,300 shelter animals to forever homes is extremely rewarding.

Please contact us if you have questions or would like more information about our rescue.

All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, have been seen by a vet, are microchipped, and are tested for heartworms or Feline Leukemia/FIV before adoption.

Please send us an email to get started as a volunteer with Helping Hands Pet Rescue at Look forward to volunteering with you soon!
