HELPING HANDS FOR HELPLESS PAWS IS TAKING A BREAK AND NOT DOING ANIMAL RESCUE. PLEASE DO CHECK THE EDISON ANIMAL SHELTER FOR ADOPTABLE PETS. I AM NO LONGER WORKING OUT OF THIS SHELTER. WILL ADVISE WHEN I AM NO LONGER ON MY BREAK. PLEASE ALWAYS CONSIDER ADOPTING A PET.

HELPING HANDS FOR HELPLESS PAWS IS A 501(c)(3) NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION FORMED BY THE VOLUNTEER AT THE EDISON ANIMAL SHELTER. HELPING HANDS CONSISTS OF BARBARA WHO WAS A VOLUNTEER AT THE EDISON ANIMAL SHELTER FOR ABOUT 19 YEARS.

OUR GOAL IS TO GET OUR CATS AND DOGS ADOPTED OUT TO GOOD HOMES.

EDISON TAKES IN FROM 5 TOWNS, EDISON, PISCATAWAY, METUCHEN, DUNELLEN AND SCOTCH PLAINS. THE SHELTER IS LOCATED AT 125 MUNICIPAL BOULEVARD, EDISON, NJ 08817.

IF YOU NEED TO SURRENDER A PET,IT WOULD HAVE TO BE BROUGHT TO THE EDISON SHELTER AND ONLY IF YOU LIVE IN EITHER EDISON,METUCHEN, PISCATAWAY OR DUNELLEN. YOU MUST HAVE PROOF THAT THE PET IS YOURS AND UP-TO-DATE WITH SHOTS. PLEASE BRING VET RECORDS.

Adopting a Friend

ADOPTING A PET FROM AN ANIMAL SHELTER IS ONE OF THE KINDEST THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR A SHELTER DOG OR CAT. WE, AS HAVE MANY OTHERS, FIND THAT A SHELTER PET, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, KNOWS THAT YOU HAVE SAVED THEM FROM POSSIBLE EUTHANIZATION AND ARE ALWAYS THE MOST LOVABLE AND WONDERFUL PETS. PLEASE GIVE SHELTER ANIMALS A CHANCE BEFORE YOU HIT THE PET STORES!
