Our organization is called Hannah’s Helping Hands. We are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) public charity, serving the Greater Portland area. Hannah's Helping Hands is dedicated to helping under-served and marginalized individuals in our community experience a lifetime of love with a Pet. Through our programs we provide Pets, at no charge, to school classrooms, senior centers, group homes and veterans; this includes providing free medical care, supplies and food for the life of the Pet... The only ingredient needed is love!

We are proud to be of service to people who need our help the most. All of us who love animals know that the unconditional love of a Pet is one of the greatest gifts in life. Unfortunately, those who need such love, companionship and devotion are often unable to afford the costs to care for their beloved furry friend.

That is where Hannah's Helping Hands shines! We believe that every person should belong to a Pet, especially those in our community who are struggling and lonely or who may feel ostracized due to physical or mental challenges. 

Through your internship, we invite you to join us in service to our community... You can find out more about our work and programs by visiting our website at
