Vicki, our founder, is a Registered Veterinary Nurse who runs her own Vet Nurse business.
Through working with animals she was often made aware of pets looking for homes, which she ended up taking in herself until a suitable new owner could be found.
Over time, she came to realize that the demand for her help was increasing and decided to set up Helping Pets (North-East) in May 2012.
We recruited a number of additional volunteers who foster, help with administration, take professional photographs, run sponsorship schemes, fund raise and generally fetch and carry for us!
Helping Pets are run by a team of dedicated volunteers, with a mission of rehabilitating and re-homing stray and unwanted animals in the North East.
We currently accept dogs, cats and small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs.
Anyone wishing to adopt one of our pets will first need to fill in the questionnaire. We will then need to carry out a home check which will be done by one of our volunteers.
Provided that we are satisfied that your home is appropriate for the pet you wish to adopt, we can at this point, finalize the adoption.
£45 donation for a rabbit
Your donation helps with the cost of medication, neutering, micro chipping, veterinary treatment, the food and any other costs until their ‘forever home’ is found.
Rabbits leave our care fully vaccinated, micro - chipped and neutered.

We are a team of dedicated volunteers. Helping Pets (North-East) does not have any paid members of staff. Everyone who works for, or with us, is an unpaid volunteer.
We are proud of this because it means that the bulk of the money we receive, or raise, goes directly on animal rescue and care.
Only a small proportion goes on anything other than the animals.
