Dog of the Week: Mila

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

Mila and her brother, Mondo, joined Last Hope recently and they are each ready for a forever home of their very own! Mila is a young female black mouth cur mix, she is around 6 months old and near 40 pounds.  Mila does well with other dogs and has started to learn some basic commands.  She can be possessive of people, as she bonds quickly, so she needs an experienced dog owner to continue to teach her good manners and socialize her well. She will thrive in an active home with another friendly medium-sized dog.   Mila has not met cats and should be in a home with kids aged 12+.

Mila’s adoption fee is $300 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

If pretty Mila looks like the girl for you, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Happy Tail: Louie Bubbles (formerly Austin)

Julia D Happy Tails Leave a Comment

When Craig, Heather, Cole, and Cora went to pick out a puppy from a litter at Last Hope, they had a certain puppy in mind based on pictures. But when they got there, Louie Bubbles (formerly Austin) changed their plans. He curled up in their arms and stayed there during the entire adoption event and they knew he had picked them.

So they took Louie Bubbles home and the transition was easy; they just had to adjust to having a puppy in the house. He is smart and was housebroken and kennel trained in no time. He enjoys chew toys, playing ball, chasing squirrels, and playing with his fursister named Lyla. But his favorite thing to do is cuddle with the family!

The family is loving having Louie Bubbles in the house and he loves them just as much. We wish you a long and happy life, Louie Bubbles!

Kitty is a shy girl that is looking for a home to relax in with her human. She has the unique markings of a Bengal cat along with the green eyes. Kitty is so soft and very friendly but she isn’t the biggest fan of being picked up. She would do best in a home with older kids and with no dogs.

Dog of the Week: Warren

Julia D Dog of the Week

You may not be able to see it from Warren’s pictures, but he has a gorgeous double coat much like a shepherd or a husky would have! Warren very much appreciates attention from people and will gladly lean against your leg and stop to enjoy belly rubs at any time! He seems pretty neutral with other dogs but has not been introduced to cats. Warren joined Last Hope after he had spent many months as a stray in Southern Iowa.  We’re told he spent cold winter months by himself, and that he was only caught by animal control when he wandered into someone’s fenced yard.   We don’t see Warren as being an escape artist but would want to make sure his future owner is aware that he may be a flight risk until he settles into his new home and bonds with his new family.

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

Cat of the Week: Ambush

Julia D Cat of the Week

Ambush is a sweet boy who’s full of spunk, energy, and love. When he came to a previous rescue, he had a tail injury and it was too far gone to be saved, so he had to have his tail amputated. He doesn’t seem to mind as it doesn’t slow him down or stop him from begging for attention. He’s playful and loves string toys and would love to cuddle up on your lap. Ambush is FEeLV-positive, so he would need to be around other cats who are also positive or be a solo cat. There is no danger of transmitting the virus to humans and FELV-positive cats can live long and healthy lives. If you’re looking for some affection and energy, Ambush is your guy.

The adoption fee for Ambush is $50 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, and a microchip with free lifetime registration.

If Ambush sounds like the kitty for you, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Hubba, hubba…check out Diesel! This handsome young guy, believed to be around 3 years old, is on the prowl for a new home.  Diesel is a smart and loving dog, he loves to be around people so an owner with a flexible schedule will be a great fit for him! Diesel is not a fit with cats or smaller dogs, he loves to play and has wonderful young dog energy that they wouldn’t appreciate.  He will be best suited with a female dog that is non-dominant and around his size, or as an only dog with a dog savvy dog owner.  Diesel has been slowly introduced to daycare at Cedar Run, and he will be a star pupil in the FREE obedience class included in his adoption fee! Diesel is friendly with all people, although he ultimately wants a home with older kids who will play with him.

The adoption fee for Diesel 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.

Volunteer of the Month: Pam Kabela

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Pam Kabela has been fostering cats and kittens for a year and a half for Last Hope. She takes on pregnant mamas and newborn babies.

It all started with Shiloh, a cat she rescued from work. Shiloh had four babies but took on an additional four babies from another mother cat that couldn’t care for them. Shiloh continues to help out with kittens.

Pam says she has learned a lot from her fellow volunteers and loves caring for the mommies and babies. She loves the excitement in the new family’s faces, although she does shed a few tears when she has to hand them over. But she’s happy for all when a cat finds a forever home.

Caring for newborn kittens takes a lot of dedication and patience. We are lucky to have volunteers like Pam to help with the little ones and their moms. Thank you for all you do, Pam!
