Capital Campaign Overview

Why A Capital Campaign?

Since our founding in 2004, Last Hope has experienced tremendous growth including the purchase of our adoption center facility at 1823 16th Ave SW, Cedar Rapids. This building has become an invaluable asset to the volunteers and animals in our care, however there are many updates and ongoing maintenance needs in addition to our set monthly operating expenses.

Last Hope was given a great opportunity to purchase the building in Cedar Rapids. This location not only allows us to better serve homeless pets, it also offers greater opportunity for our volunteers. A lease was officially signed in January 2015 and we moved into the building on 16th Ave SW.  Most recently this location was The Dog House Boarding and Grooming shop. Many of you may know it as the old Frey Animal Hospital. It now houses Last Hope Animal Rescue and CR Grooming.

Our Vision.

Our adoption center currently houses homeless pets until a foster or forever home can be found. Often we bring in animals from shelters that may have health issues. We are now be able to bring these pets into a facility where they can be evaluated, cleaned up, medicated, quarantined and rehabilitated. With a little TLC, help from our amazing volunteers and your support, Last Hope will be able to continue to grow from this location.

Seeking visionary investors and donors.

So, what is the next step? With your support we can continue our growth and help save animals in our community. If you believe, as we do, that our volunteer driven rescue group is worth supporting, please consider donating today. Your generous gift is greatly appreciated.

We never want to be in jeopardy of losing our Adoption Center. NOW more than ever we need your help!Sonia Brandley
