Helpless Animals (HHA) is a 100% non-profit, 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(2)
tax-exempt organization, formed to help curb the tremendous overpopulation of
animals. Founded in 1987, we have been in existence for over twenty three years and
hope to continue to be of help for many years to come. Approximately
200,000 animals are euthanized every year in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex
alone. The primary reason is there aren't enough homes for them. They've
committed no wrong - they are just part of the over-surplus of animals.
The largest cause of this overpopulation is the failure to spay
and neuter pets. These animals can continually breed and then their
offspring begin breeding creating a tradgic over population problem.
Numerous animals are brought to shelters and humane organizations, dumped on
country roads, in residential neighborhoods, in parks, by creeks, etc. Many
people are under the false impression that these animals can survive out in the
wild but, like us, their food came out of a can or bag. They have never been
trained for self-survival and as domestic pets have no instinct for survival.
They starve, are hit by autos, or are killed by humans or other animals. Many
animals also end up in city shelters; for most of them, euthanasia is their
working with pet owners to help curb this overpopulation of animals via our
low-cost and no-cost spay/neuter certificates.
HHA provides three functions:
- We offer financial assistance for spays and neuters (vaccinations included
with this service).
- We provide homes for homeless animals surrended to or rescued by HHA. Mobile adoptions are temporarily on hold while we concentrate on spaying and neutering.
- We offer medical aid to not only pets rescued by HHA but to owners of injured
or sick animals.
HHA is comprised totally of volunteers - no salaries are ever paid. All
donations go directly to aid animals in need. Expenses such as postage,
minimal printing, etc. are kept to a minimum. The organization does not have a
shelter so pets that are taken in are housed in private foster homes where they receive loving
care until they are adopted into responsible and loving homes.
All donations go directly to aid animals in need. Anyone in need of assistance
