Who We Are

Helping Hands Pet Rescue is a leading rescue in our community and is a registered 501©3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is a no-kill community for Alachua County's healthy and treatable cats and dogs. Despite employing only one full time staff member, we are able to achieve- through our outstanding volunteer and foster network- one of the best adoption results in our community year after year.

What We Do

In 2016 we found amazing homes for over 1,200 cats and dogs partnering with shelters in Alachua County and high risk surrounding counties. We pull many high-risk pets into our program;heart worm positive dogs, pregnant cats and dogs and senior pets that otherwise wouldn't have a strong chance of finding their perfect home. We are successful because of the amazing support we receive from our volunteers (individuals and organizations/groups) and fosters.
