Hands That Heal RI (HTHRI) is a volunteer, 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization that provides financial assistance for veterinary care to low-income families, senior citizens and homeless pet owners. By providing low-cost veterinary care, HTHRI improves the health and well-being of pet owners and the animals in their lives.
Bringing a pet into the family is a lifetime commitment. Often people find themselves in unexpected financial hardship, either temporarily or as a long-term change from their original situation. Many pet owners have to relinquish their pets to animal shelters or find another home for them because they can no longer provide the cost of care, even if the problems are only short-lived. Fortunately, HTHRI is here to help families obtain assistance with routine veterinary expenses for their pets.
HTHRI focuses on providing low-cost emergency veterinary care for those who qualify, resources for free and low-cost spay/neuter services to people in financial need, general support, counseling, and education for people with pet-related concerns. We also support animal rights legislation. We are supportive of other animal welfare groups and work with them to improve the lives of animals, their owners and the community.
