Cat of the Week: Blaze

Julia D Cat of the Week Leave a Comment

They call me Blaze. I was pulled from a small hoarding house along with my brother and some others. The house was in such bad shape, it has been gutted now. I’m glad to be out of there and in better hands at Last Hope. I’m looking for a second chance at a forever home now. I just need someone who will love me and take good care of me. Blaze is about three years old so he still has a lot of love to give!

Blaze’s adoption fee is $85 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip. If you’re interested in this great guy, please complete an application HERE or email adoptions@adopthope.org.

Dog of the Week: Kaia Carson

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

Hi, my name is Kaia Carson and I came all the way from California.  While the West Coast has all the sunshine,  I wanted to see how the Mid-West farmers daughters lived. All the dog volunteers at Last Hope say I am the sweetest little girl, I love to snuggle, and give tons of kisses.  I love to ride in the car and go for walks and I am super good at both! I am a very strong girl and need someone equally as strong.  I am a princess and love all the attention so I will need to be the only pet in the house.  I also need a home that has a privacy fence in case the neighbors have pets. So if you always wished they all could be  California girls and wanted one of your own, then I am your girl.

Kaia Carson’s adoption fee is $250 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip, and a free obedience class. If you’re interested in this great girl, please complete an application HERE or email adoptions@adopthope.org.

Cat of the Week: Tuffy

Tuffy… A sweet Orange Tabby & white boy who we suspect has had a tough life, yet this sweet soul wants nothing more than to be loved on, petted, and treated with kindness – for which he will reward you with the most endearing, rumbling purr that will just grab your heart! He is about 6 years old and was found by a kind cat-loving person in an area of Cedar Falls which for some reason is a prime area for people to abandon their animals.  He had horrific injuries on his back and it required some surgery and many stitches, and he also had a hole in his leg!  Through all of that, he has remained loving and so appreciative of the loving care he has been given.  He will make someone a very loving and sweet companion!

Tuffy’s adoption fee is $85 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip. If you’re interested in this handsome guy, please complete an application HERE or email adoptions@adopthope.org.

Happy Tail: Baxter

Julia D Happy Tails 1 Comment

Natalie and Jerry adopted Baxter from Last Hope after searching online for a local rescue. They were looking for a small senior dog to fit into their family of senior furbabies. They also wanted to adopt a senior pet because they know that seniors have a harder time getting adopted.

They appreciated the thorough application process because they acknowledge that doing reference checks and a home visit is necessary to make sure the right pet is going to the right home. The entire process took less than a week and they say it was worth the short wait!

Natalie and Jerry figured that he had the name Baxter for his whole life so they didn’t want to change it, but they did give him the middle name, Banjo.

Baxter settled into their home quickly. The foster mom suggested having him sleep in a crate until he and their other dog got fully acquainted. Well, that lasted one night and then Baxter was up on the bed and has been there ever since – sleeping on a pillow!

Baxter loves to chase squirrels and chipmunks with their other dog, Malachi. He also likes toys and hides them under the bed. He loves going for walks but his favorite pastime is sleeping next to his family and that’s their favorite thing, too.

After they adopted Baxter they learned that he was born on December 10, 2005. The dog they lost to cancer last summer, Samson, was born on December 9, 2005. They took that as a sign that Baxter belonged with them. They say, “We hope more people will consider adopting seniors. They are not as energetic as puppies and they offer a ton of love!”

Natalie and Jerry, we’re so happy that you gave Baxter such a great life with you and your other furbabies. Thank you for opening your hearts to a senior dog!

Dog of the Week: A.Chance

Last Hope took a chance on me…and I’m so very glad they did! My name now is A.Chance and I’m a sweetheart for being such a big guy. I’m strong and tough on the outside, but full of love and cuddles on the inside. I’d really love a home where I can be your main man; other dogs are okay but I do best as a single dog. I love people of all ages, but again, I’m a big guy so I think kids who are older would be best for me  Won’t you take a chance on me, too?

A.Chance’s adoption fee is $250 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip, and a free obedience class. If you’re interested in this great guy, please complete an application HERE or email adoptions@adopthope.org.

Cat of the Week: Freya

Meet Freya, the sweetest sass monster there is. This precious girl is her foster mom’s shadow. You can find her on the couch watching Netflix and in bed ready for a sleepover with you. She does though seem to want all the attention to herself so a home with no other animals or maybe another submissive cat friend. That’s why we call her the sass monster because she will tell the other pets whose turn for attention it is. This lazy girl is ready for you to come meet and give your Netflix password to her! So next time Netflix ask if you’re still watching take that moment to fill out an application to come take me home!

Freya’s adoption fee is $85 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip. If you’d like to add this sassy lady to your family, please complete an application HERE or email adoptions@adopthope.org.

Dog of the Week: Damon

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

Meet Damon. He is an 11 year old Husky looking for his forever home. Don’t let his age fool you…..he still acts like a young pup a lot of the time. Other than some joint sensitivity, he is in great health and loves to go for walks. He can also be a big couch potato if that’s what you choose to do for the day.  Damon knows sit, lay down, shake and can even give high fives. His best talent though is his singing. Have you ever heard a Husky sing? It’s entertaining and will make you smile. Damon does great with people but will need to be the only dog. We are looking for a dog-savvy person that is familiar with his breed and will have time to spend with him. Damon is not destructive and can be left loose when his people are gone. He might sleep with you if he decides that he needs to cuddle. To keep Damon looking so handsome, he will need regular grooming.

Damon’s adoption fee is $200 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip, and a free obedience class. If you’re interested in handsome Damon, please complete an application HERE or email adoptions@adopthope.org.

Cat of the Week: Adam

Hey, I’m Adam. I was a stray cat picked up at a Casey’s in Hills, Iowa. Not much else is known about my background, unfortunately, just that I’ve been roaming the streets for a while now. I’m enjoying the attention I get from everyone and especially the sweet petting! I can be a bit love bitey, but I’m not aggressive at all, I just am new to people and am still trying to figure this out. The nice volunteer who was taking care of me chose not to give me attention and ignore me when I would nibble on her as a way to stop the behavior. I suppose that may work but I just get so excited, I don’t mean anything wrong by it, I’m just so enthusiastic when I get lovins. I’m sweet, active, and a talker too.

Dog of the Week: Coco

Coco is a 6-year-old boxer looking for her forever family. She does great with kids and has lots of kisses and love to share. Coco knows how to sit and is eager to learn new tricks. She minds her manners and doesn’t jump up on her humans. She is kennel trained and housebroke and really loves comfy beds and cuddling. Coco prefers to be the only dog of the family. She is not one that will be up for dog parks, camping, or dog events – more of a stay at home kind of girl.  Coco tends to pull on her leash and can make a big deal out of other dogs passing by. She has been to a trainer and learned a lot but will need her forever family to keep working with her so she can be the best dog she can be.

Coco’s adoption fee is $250 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on shots, a microchip, and a free obedience class. If you’re interested in beautiful Coco, please complete an application HERE or email adoptions@adopthope.org.

Dog of the Week: Kaiya

Julia D Dog of the Week

Kaiya is a beautiful young pitbull terrier mix. She was found by a patrolman in Missouri. At the time, she had an infection in her eye and her eye needed to be removed to prevent further damage. She has made an excellent recovery and gets around without any problems or fearfulness. The shelter that she was at became too full, so Kaiya is now a Last Hope dog.   Kaiya has been learning potty training and leash manners very well. She knows “sit” and “kennel” and is eager to learn more (especially for treats)! Kaiya has loved all people she has met and gets along well with her “big brother.” She does get pretty excited whenever she sees other animals and will chase cats. Kaiya has a lot of puppy energy and will do well in a home where she has space to play and people and/or dog friends to play with. Kaiya will thrive with someone to teach her how to curb her enthusiasm and will repay in limitless cuddles.

Kaiya’s adoption fee is $300 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip, and a free obedience class. If you’re interested in Kaiya, please complete an application HERE or email adoptions@adopthope.org.
