Capital Campaign Overview

Why A Capital Campaign?

Over the past two years, Last Hope has experienced tremendous growth. Along with growth comes growing pains and our previous location was limited. It has all been worth it though and we are thrilled to say we have rescued and placed over 400 animals in loving homes this past year.

Last Hope has been given a great opportunity to purchase a 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 and we moved into a building on 16th Ave SW. We hope to purchase the building by the end of the year. Most recently this location was The Dog House Boarding and Grooming shop. Many of you may know it as the old Frey Animal Hospital.

Our Vision.

Our vision is to utilize this location as an “Adoption and Intake Center.” In addition it 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 will 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? Funding to purchase the building. 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. In the attached pages you will find information on naming opportunities and how your gift will help support our cause.

We are in jeopardy of losing our Adoption Center. NOW more than ever we need your help!Sonia Brandley
