Plymouth Helping Hands for Animals is a registered 501c3, all volunteer, charitable organization. We raise funds to financially assist pet owners who are in need of assistance with the costs of their pet's veterinary medical care, pet food and supplies, and other essential pet-related needs. Geographically we serve the Town of Plymouth and its adjacent, surrounding towns. We serve a unique niche in our community. One of our main goals is help alleviate the financial burden of extraordinary veterinary expenses so that pet owners can keep their animals well and safely at home. We also support pet owners who may be struggling by providing pet food and supplies at our three (3) Pet Food Pantries that we operate in Plymouth. Our organization is out there, 365 days a year, fulfilling our mission, and will always strive to help as many animals as possible. Throughout the year we plan fundraising events and participate in outreach opportunities to spread the word about our work. We rely solely on monetary donations and In-Kind contributions to help the animals in our local area. With your support, we will continue our mission to help those without a voice: the animals. Thank you for your support!!
1. AMERICAN LEGION POST 40 PET FOOD PANTRY: Our local American Legion Post 40 has graciously invited Plymouth Helping Hands for Animals to have a Pet Food Pantry alongside the Legion’s regular Tuesday people Food Pantry. The Pet Food Pantry is open EVERY TUESDAY from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm and open to anyone in need. American Legion Post 40 is located at 199 Federal Furnace Road in Plymouth. We keep the Pantry stocked with pet food, cat litter, treats, pet toys, and other pet-related items. We are very happy and grateful to offer this service to pets and pet owners in need. Donations of pet food and supplies can also be dropped off during the Tuesday 11:00 am – 1:00 pm time period.
