Interested in helping our adoptable cats and dogs meet their forever home? Contact us today!


Helping Hands Pet Rescue holds adoption events at PetSmart on Archer Road in Butler Plaza in Gainesville almost every weekend and we need your help!

We are looking for Pre-VetMed students or experienced adoption counselors to help us from 11-2 or 2-5 on Saturdays at our adoption events!

Previous experience with animal adoptions is a plus but not required for Pre-VetMed students. This is great as a resume builder and grad school applications/interviews!

For those looking to become a counselor and not a student, come volunteer with us through one of our other opportunities and we can train you after volunteering with us for a bit!

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.
