Helping Hands needs help
Helping Hands is a thrift store which donates to the Animal Haven. They are looking for donations of items to re-stock their warehouse after a fire. If you are able to donate please do so and designate Animal Haven as the beneficiary recipient of the proceeds.
See the letter below form Helping Hands:
To all of our Customers, Members, Friends, and Family,
The Helping Hands Community Thrift Store & Furniture Bank has helped people in need across Connecticut since 2010, including people with disabilities, transitioning from homelessness or military service or displaced by fire. Now we are hoping for a helping hand in return from the community after fire wiped through its West Haven warehouse.
Early in the morning on August 10th we had a destructive fire in our West Haven warehouse. The majority of our inventory was destroyed. This is not only a devastating loss to us, but also to the families we help in the charities we raise money for.
We need your help. We need your donations. We need furniture, clothing, knick knacks, and housewares. Anything that you could donate we need.
Your donations are tax deductible and you can choose what charity you would like to your donation to benefit.
Members, please ask your donors and supporters to make donations to help out. Donors and shoppers please go through your gently used items and see if you have anything you can spare. Please tell your friends and family that we need your help.
We need to restock so we can continue to help people in need.

A note from the Board of Directors
2013 was a challenging year for The Animal Haven. We have rescued many, many kittens this season and have unfortunately had a number of animals coming in needing medical care that was often very costly. Our vet bills have been astronomical but if we have the room, it is difficult for us to say no to an animal in need. In general, expenses are up and income is down.
How can you help? If you can, here are some ways: Can you spare an extra donation now & then? Add The Animal Haven as a beneficiary in your will. Encourage friends and family to become a member. Donate food and shelter supplies. Run a food & supplies drive at your place of work, school, church. Volunteer your time and services. We are always in need of help at fundraisers and adoption events, and assistance with things like building and property maintenance. Run your own fundraiser for us. Donate something for a raffle or auction prize.
Remember that every little bit helps – every small donation, every bit of time you can give. Anything donated is something we don’t have to pay for. Your donation is not only a tax deduction, but you will have the priceless satisfaction of knowing you have helped needy cats and dogs have a better life!
