The rehoming of companion animals - mainly cats/kittens and dogs/puppies but also pocket pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs etc - is a primary focus of Helping Hands Animal Rescue.
Cats and dogs - and their offspring - that arrive in our care are fostered in the homes of our carers where all of their health, social and welfare needs are met. This includes the engagement of professional trainers for dogs if deemed beneficial for the dog.
Prior to rehoming, all cats and dogs are desexed, flea and worm treated and microchipped - without exception.
Our companion animals come into care for many reasons, they may be surrendered by previous owners or calls from vets to assist.
Many of our kittens are strays that are trapped in the wild. Stray kittens under 16 weeks are considered homeless and can come directly to rescue. It is generally easy to tell if a kitten is a stray or has a home by watching its behaviour and also its appearance. These little waifs always need extra tender care for their health and socialisation but they are generally quickly zooming around without a care in the world.
To adopt a pet from Helping Hands Animal Rescue, you must complete an adoption form that is specific to the pet - chose the appropriate form here.
Please note that selection for adoption is NOT on a first-come, first-served basis but on what is the most appropriate fit for the pet and the potential family.
