Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: HELP the Animals Inc. stands for Humane Existence for Lost Pets and is home to hundreds of cats and dogs every year - animals that are lost, abandoned, and sometimes victims of cruelty, abuse and neglect. HELP provides shelter, nourishment, exercise, medical care and love for animals while actively pursuing lifetime adoptive homes. HELP is a no-kill shelter, meaning that the animals remain in our care until they find their permanent guardians, however long that may take. All of the animals at HELP are spayed or neutered before adoption, ensuring that they will not add to the unwanted pet overpopulation dilemma. They are also current on all immunizations.

Programs: Provide safe haven and quality care for homeless, abandoned, sick or injured animals until appropriate adoption placement can be made. Adopted animals are spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter.

in an effort to improve the health of the cat and dog population, the organization holds vaccination clinics.

Used to be a great shelter until new management came in. Now dogs are disappearing and director, nor board, will say where they went. They advertise as a no kill shelter. One that's been trusted for years. But now, word got out they're killing the dogs. Several at once. Research the directors name--this isn't her first rodeo.

I don't know where to begin on praising the many volunteers that work at Help The Animals. They are the nicest, most caring people you will ever meet and, they take such good care of all the animals. They do their best on finding the best homes for all the animals. The volunteers even take some of the animals home with them, even if for a day or two, just so they can get some extra love and attention. If I were looking to adopt a pet, Help The Animals Inc. is where I would go!

We looked and looked on pet finder.com for the best fit for our family and we thought we found him! We drove from Cincinnati to help the animals shelter in Indiana just to realize our youngest kids were afraid of our forever match (we have two toddlers and two teens). We were heartbroken walking back into the shelter and then a nice woman suggested we look at another dog. I was hesitant at first, I'd den a lot of research and thought I'd narrowed down what breed and age would best fit my family, but I gave the puppy a try anyway. We loved him! The ladies even were nice enough to show us video they had taken of him riding on a scooter. He has been the best fit and I would have never given him a try if it wasn't for their kind worlds and upbeat spirit when it comes to placing their animals. They didn't pressure or rush us but instead left us alone with the dog so we could play and make sure he was indeed what we had come for. These ladies are so dedicated to their work and love the animals...each and every one!!

We found the people at HELP the Animals in Richmond, IN to be extremely devoted to working very hard for the benefit of the animals in their care. They do a lot with every dime they receive and love the animals there, working hard to find them good 'furever' homes. We adopted one of our current dogs from there a year ago and she's been a great addition to our family.
