A Helping Paw

A Helping Paw works with many 'special' pets who are at high-risk of being put down at traditional shelters due to medical or behavioral issues. A win-win for everyone. This allows already over crowded shelters to focus on more adoptable pets and at AHP it provides a pet who simply needs a little more care and or time to get a second chance at LIFE.
