Hands that Heal

Scituate, Rhode Island

Cause Description:
Hands That Heal's mission is to assist the elderly and Low income families in caring for their animals. We were formed in 2006 when a local volunteer for Meals on Wheels brought it to our attention that the elderly clients she delivered meals to were feeding them to their beloved pets because they couldn't afford pet food. We did not find an organization in the community addressing this need so we formed Hands That Heal to provide food and veterinary care to the pets, while providing companionship to the clients. The human-animal bond between pets and their elderly caregivers is one of the strongest bonds in existence-often their pets are the only companions the elderly have. Medical research has proven that the presence of a pet in the home assists with healing, greater well being and a lower requirement for pain medication. An added benefit of keeping the pets and their people together is that we are ensuring that the pets stay home vs residing in a local shelter. Periodically we will foster pets that become homeless and we encourage you to peruse our available pet listing for your next love!
