Cat of the Week: Garcia

Julia D Cat of the Week Leave a Comment

I’m a pretty laid back gal. I spend most of my time napping and purring away! I enjoy getting pets and cheek scratches and might even sit in your lap for a while. I also love to sunbathe on the windowsill! I’m not a huge fan of dogs yet, but I would do fine with a cat companion. Garcia is about 2 1/2 years old.

Her adoption fee is $100 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, and a microchip with free lifetime registration.

Happy Tail: Opal (formerly Sandra)

Julia D Happy Tails Leave a Comment

 

Lauren and Benjamin were looking to add a long-haired kitty to their family. They already had Oscar and  Olive and were looking for a playmate for Oscar especially. They heard that there was a long-haired kitten at Last Hope and fell in love with Opal (formerly Sandra).

Opal adjusted very quickly to her new home and buddies. They kept them separated for a week so they could all get used to each other. It went well when they were finally completely introduced. She loves to play and fluff her long tail. Oscar had been hit by a car when he was young and had to have surgeries. He no longer has a right hip joint but he doesn’t let that slow him down and Opal helps keep him active.

Lauren and Benjamin have a cat tent that they put out in the yard so the three cats can safely experience the outdoors. They love to lay out there and watch the birds and world go by. Opal is getting used to sleeping more at night with her brother and sister, but she will sometimes race across their bed early in the morning to make sure they don’t miss out on the fun!

Opal has fit in so well with everyone and has brought a real sense of playfulness to the group. It sounds like Opal found the perfect forever home and we are thankful that Lauren and Benjamin are giving her such a great life.

 

Dog of the Week: Jazz

Julia D Dog of the Week 2 Comments

Jazz is a two-year-old neutered male wire terrier looking for his forever family! He has never lived with another dog, but he’s done doggy daycare and made lots of friends! He is a little shy when meeting new people, but he is friendly and would be okay with older/calm children. He does need people that will respect his space while he is eating and help to continue socializing and training him. A fenced-in yard to explore will be best, Jazz has been a little bit of an escape artist so this is for his safety!

Jazz’s adoption fee is $250 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

If you have a calm household and want a new buddy, please complete an adoption application HERE.

“Last Hope goes above and beyond for all of their animals. Lots of love, tears, and courage…..the compassion is incredible. I’m honored to be part of this group and to know the people who make it run every single day. I’ve shared many experiences from happy to sad with them and wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

Autumn

That’s what Jen Harleen had to say about volunteering for Last Hope. She began in 2015 and hit the ground running. Jen started by working with the dogs at the Adoption Center but quickly added additional duties including helping at adoption events and fundraising events, doing intakes when needed, she served as a foster home and foster lead, and she also performs home visits. Since she began, she has opened her home to 35 dogs that needed a foster placement.

If we could clone Jen, we would. She’s willing to jump in wherever needed and roll up her sleeves and get to work. Thank you for your hard work and dedication, Jen!

Dog of the Week: Booker

Julia D Dog of the Week 2 Comments

What a face! If we could give Booker another name, we might have just gone with ‘Meatball!’ This stubby dude is a total character, and we just know that he’ll bring a lot of joy and laughter to his forever home.  Booker is around 3-4 years old, he appears to be an Olde English Bulldogge/American Bulldog mix.  He is very strong and will need an experienced handler, and may be best suited as an only dog or placed with a non-dominant female dog near his size in his new forever home. Booker loves to go for walks, he is potty trained and does not need to be kenneled when left alone in his foster home.

Booker’s adoption fee is $250 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

If you need a character in your life, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Cat of the Week: Nymerya

Julia D Cat of the Week

Nymerya is a spunky young lady; she loves people but not other cats. Nymerya has to be an only cat, she does not want to share any love or attention. She is very sweet and snuggly and would love to nap on your lap or in a window. She still has some of her kitten energy to play and run around. Nymerya is a little over one year old.

Nymerya’s adoption fee is $125 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, and a microchip with free lifetime registration.

If you would like Nymerya to be queen of your castle, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Dog of the Week: Dodger

Julia D Dog of the Week

Dodger is looking for a running partner! This handsome guy is great on a leash and he loves nothing more than to get out and walk or run with you. Dodger is not a fan of being left home alone while you’re out having adventures (or you know, working) so someone who works from home (on an ongoing basis; not just due to COVID-19) will be the best match. Dodger needs to be the only animal in the house with a homeowner that is dog experienced. A fenced yard will be safest for Dodger, and he wouldn’t mind possibly living with some older children (6+ years old). Dodger is about 6 to 7 years old.

Dodger’s adoption fee is $250 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

If you have the attention that Dodger needs, please complete an adoption application HERE.
