Everybody's Irish on St. Patrick's Day! Our friends at Pioppi's Liquors in Plymouth invited us for a St. Patty's Day "pop-up" fundraiser.
2022's "JINGLE ALL THE WAY" at The Pinehills Village Green was another great success and such a fun day! Plymouth Helping Hands for Animals was the recipient of the registration fees for the "Reindog Parade." The Pinehills and Cape Cod 5 Bank both matched the registration fee funds, so the donation was tripled and we are so grateful! This annual holiday event is always festive and we get to meet so many beautiful dogs (and wonderful people!).
THANK YOU to everyone who purchased pies, made a monetary donation, or donated pet food and supplies for our 3rd ANNUAL PIES FOR PAWS FUNDRAISER 2022! We sold 680 pies for Thanksgiving this year! Thank you to Montilio's Bakery for being our partner for a third year in a row and providing us with their scrumptious pies! The net proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to assist pets and pet owners with veterinary expenses when medical needs arise that cause financial hardship. One of our organization’s missions is to keep pets safe and healthy and at home with their owners/families.
OUR 2nd ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT FUNDRAISER WAS A GREAT SUCCESS! Thank you again to Squirrel Run Golf and Country Club for hosting our 2022 tourney! Here are some photos from the event on September 24th.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO VCA Plymouth Animal Hospital and Pet Resort and our friend Sue Moulton, who works at VCA, for designating our charitable organization as one of the recipients of their “Christmas in July 2022” pet food drive.

THANK YOU VCA Plymouth!! @PlymouthHelpingHandsForAnimals

Cat litter is one of most needed item at our Pet Food Pantries so this is fantastic! @PrettyLitter
