Cat of the Week: Harley

Julia D Cat of the Week Leave a Comment

Harley is a beautiful Blue Point Siamese Snowshoe mix – with GORGEOUS BLUE EYES – who came to us after spending some time at another shelter where he was overlooked. The theory was that it was because he doesn’t like other cats. He’s very vocal about it and will tell you all about why he should be your one and only! Who can blame him though?  He’s a sweet, older boy who just wants the love and attention he deserves – and he’ll be a wonderful companion for a family or individual who only wants one cat!  He is front paw declawed.

Harley’s adoption fee is $85 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip with lifetime registration.

Volunteer of the Month: Molly Tutt

Julia D Volunteer of the Month Leave a Comment

Molly Tutt has been volunteering only since July 2018 but she hit the ground running and does a lot of tasks for us. She had attended some Cat Adoption Open Houses and thought she would like to help out with the kitties.

Molly does cat care which involves cleaning up after and feeding the cats at the shelter but she also trains new volunteers, takes cats to vet appointments, transfers cats to and from PetSmart in Coralville, helps with events, performs home visits, and helps with adoptions. She pitches in wherever we need help!

When asked why she likes volunteering at Last Hope Molly said, “I love all the kitty kisses, snuggles, and purrs! I like volunteering at Last Hope because seeing the cats and even dogs  get their forever homes is worth the time spent.” She also loves to see updates on how the cats and dogs are doing in their forever homes.

We can depend on Molly to help out with many different tasks and are glad she has joined the Last Hope family!

 

Dog of the Week: Little Billy

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

Meet Little Billy! But don’t be fooled by his name. There is nothing little about this cutie! From his personality to his love of attention from his canine and human friends, Billy is big in every way!  He enjoys playing with dogs his size or bigger and kids of any age. He loves his toys and adores being petted. Billy prefers adult dogs over puppies but will tolerate puppies. We’ve never introduced him to a cat, so a careful introduction would be needed if cats live in a potential adoptive home. He’s making progress on crate training and knows sit, stay, and shake. Billy would make a fun addition to almost any family!

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

Cat of the Week: Laffie

Julia D Cat of the Week Leave a Comment

My name is Laffie. I am a beautiful torti. I was brought into Last Hope fearful but all I need is some TLC and you will see the softer side to me. I’m unique, as I’m a polydactyl kitty which means I was born with an extra toe on all of my paws. I may get frightened at first in my new home and may need an adjustment period, but I’ve come a long way here at Last Hope and enjoy spending time with the volunteers here! Please give me a chance to be your family kitty!

Laffie comes with spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip with lifetime registration.

Dog of the Week: Groot

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

Groot is a 5-month-old puppy recently transplanted to Iowa from Texas. He came here with his littermate, Jeff. He is currently almost 30 lbs. Groot is just about the biggest sweetheart you will ever meet. He LOVES people, kids, and other dogs as long as they do not bark at him. He is too interested in cats, he thinks they need to be chased. Groot is good at walking on a leash, he knows “sit” and is mastering “lay down” and “come.” Groot is crate trained and potty trained, as long as he is taken outside regularly. He does prefer to sleep in your bed at night and does that like a champ! He loves to be active and have something to do when he is not napping. He is still a puppy, so he needs plenty of his own toys to chew on, balls to play with and daily exercise. He loves to run and play, so a fenced in yard is preferred. He can entertain himself well, but likes to check in with you and have you play with him too. He hopes to meet you soon!

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

Happy Tail: Cheyanne

Julia D Happy Tails

Cheyanne was a foster in Jen’s house when Brianne met her and fell in love. She knew her fiance, Phil, needed to meet this dog and he fell in love with Cheyanne, too.

Brianne was over at Jen’s house each week during the adoption process and because Cheyanne already knew Brianne, the transition was smooth when the adoption went through.

She now lives in Minnesota (although she’s not a fan of all the snow!) with Brianne and Phil and she’s loving life! They have a cabin they go to in the summer and Cheyanne loves it there and has become a favorite with their extended family and is spoiled at family gatherings.

Her favorite things are snuggling between Brianne and Phil and sleeping a lot.

Will You Marry Dad?

Cheyanne even had a paw in helping Phil propose to Brianne. He put a tag on her that said, “Will you marry Dad?”

It sounds like Cheyanne is living the life she’s always deserved. Thank you, Brianne and Phil, for giving her such a wonderful forever home!

Dog of the Week: Dizzy

Julia D Dog of the Week

Meet Dizzy! She’s a very sweet 11-year-old Shih Tzu/poodle mix that made her way from a shelter in Illinois to Iowa. Dizzy is very low key. Her favorite spot is her soft pink bed. She would really like a home where her people are home all day or at least aren’t gone too long. She does fine with her foster dog siblings but is totally fine with being the only one. At her age dealing with young ones, two or four-legged, is too much work so older kids and older or calm, laid back dogs would be best. Dizzy hasn’t been cat tested but as long as they are respectful of her, they should do fine. Dizzy is crate trained and walks well on a leash but moves pretty slowly and likes to take her time. Her favorite time of day is breakfast and dinner and anything in between involving food! She will wiggle her little tail and looks like she is smiling because she is so excited.  If you are looking for an easy-to-love girl, Dizzy might be the one for you!

Dizzy’s adoption fee is $200 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

Cat of the Week: Amaya

Julia D Cat of the Week

Amaya is a sweet little lady with a lot of love to give! She was picked up as a stray and has come a long way in her time with us. She’s learned to love a good petting and even comes looking for attention occasionally. She’s pretty independent but always friendly and willing to take love and attention if you are there to provide it. She would do well in a home with other cats.

Amaya’s adoption fee is $85 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip with lifetime registration.

Dog of the Week: Bentley

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi, my name is Bentley, I am a ten-year-old fawn Chihuahua.  When I came to my foster home six weeks ago, I had lost my owner who suddenly passed away and was separated from my two friends that I lived with, so I was pretty emotional.  I have been neutered since then as well and my personality is really changing for the better.  I get along great with other dogs of all sizes and I could care less about cats (my foster home has two that are bigger than I am!).  Because I just recently got neutered my foster family is just starting to let me out into the main part of the house without gates and I am doing very well at not marking.  I know what it means when they say it’s time to “go outside” and I go out an do my business without any problem.  I sleep in a big crate at night with a really soft bed and blanket and I sleep all night long. I would love to find a family that could be my forever home.  If there are children, they would need to be older children that understand that I am a senior dog and can be gentle and patient with me.  I like to be out in the yard in the sun and I like to sniff around check things out. I walk great on a leash but for some reason I get grumpy when you take my harness off.  I am happiest when I am with humans but I don’t need to be on your lap.  I like a really soft blanket and just to know that you are there.  My teeth aren’t the best, so I prefer a mixture of soft food and small kibble.  I don’t really care for treats but I do like carrots that are broken into little tiny pieces.    I would love to become the next member of your family and my sweet little face will make you smile!

Bentley’s adoption fee is $200.00 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

Dog of the Week: A. Chance

Julia D Dog of the Week

Last Hope took a chance on me…and I’m so very glad they did! My name now is A. Chance, 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 that are older would be best for me. Won’t you take a chance on me, too?

A. Chance’s adoption fee is $250.00 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience course.
