About Helping Hand Fund: Assisting Needy Pets of the Treasure Valley
The Helping Hand Fund was established in 2012 by founders who witnessed the incredible gifts found in the bond between humans and animals. In establishing this fund, the founders acknowledged:
The hearts of people comforted by the love of a faithful pet
A need for veterinary services when financial resources are not available
A need for client education on preventative care
Helping Idaho Dogs is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, all-volunteer organization whose motto is “strengthening the canine-human relationship through education and support”. Our mission is to improve the lives of pets in the Treasure Valley by providing the needed funding so that all pets can get the care that they need. We know that a dog, cat or any pet is not just a pet, but a family member. If you are experiencing a financial crisis, we are here to help you get the services your family pet needs.
Pending available funds, assistance is granted after applicants complete a needs assessment, which must be approved by the Funding Committee.
Money from the Helping Hand Fund supports service and rescue organizations in the Treasure Valley. A percentage of donated funds are available to other non-profit animal organizations (i.e. rescue groups, shelters, etc) that DO NOT already provide veterinary care as a non-profit entity.
