God’s Helping Hands is a 501(c)3 that was originally started by Terri Parrott, DVM and her three daughters while living on a farm outside of Lake Wales, Florida 10 years ago. When GHH was first started Dr. Parrott, her family and many volunteers helped to establish an avenue for injured and rehabilitate wildlife as well as facilitate equestrian therapeutic riding for children with disabilities. The charge of this not for profit organization has always been to serve the best interest of animals who can not take care of themselves, namely injured wildlife.
In March of 2011, Dr. Parrott opened her own private veterinary practice in Davenport, Florida (St. Charles Veterinary Hospital). Since the opening of this new, AAHA accredited, state of the art veterinary practice, Dr. Parrott and her team are the only veterinary hospital in East Polk County licensed to treat and rehabilitate injured wildlife. Over the course of the last year and a half the team has treated, rehabilitated and or released raccoons, opossums, deer, birds of prey, cranes, song birds, water fowl, tortoise, turtles, squirrels and most recently a baby bobcat injured in a forest fire.
