Dog of the Week: Sally

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

When Sally met …. YOU! It was love at first sight. At least from Sally because she loves everyone. This 30 lbs., year-old, hound is great with people and other dogs. She is very friendly to every human we have introduced her to, young and old. She wants to be near her humans whether it is playing with the ball, taking a walk, or sitting on the couch. She is your girl. Sally is looking for an energetic family, a loving couple, or a single human as a forever home. She is working on housebreaking has just started to go to the door and bark to be let out. She knows sit and will pick up other commands quickly. She is a hound and will get distracted by scents so a fenced yard is a requirement.  Her history notes that she can get over 4-foot fences, so a tall fence or attention when she is out in the yard would be necessary for her safety. What will it be like when Sally meets you?

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

Dog of the Week: Booker

Julia D Dog of the Week

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 and 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.

Cat of the Week: Walker

Julia D Cat of the Week

Walker is a sweet, lovable, and easy-going boy.  He loves to snuggle in the warmest spot he can find.  He will spend the entire evening glued to your side purring happily.  Walker does have a playful side to him too.  He will pounce on wiggling toes under covers, swinging ponytails, and his sisters.  Walker is well socialized and is very calm with everyone he meets including small children and strangers. He was raised with children, so he is used to being loved and carried around by an overzealous 3-year-old.  Often, he is found wrapped in a pink doll blanket and purring while being rocked as her “baby.” He is about five months old.

Walker’s adoption fee is $100 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, and a microchip with free lifetime registration.

Dog of the Week: Smoke

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi! My name is Smoke and I am an 11-year-old Shih Tzu that does not show my age. I am a laid-back, friendly boy that is ready for my forever home. I am leash trained, potty trained and kennel trained. I do prefer to have the run of the house when my humans aren’t home though. I have been around kids and dogs and have done well with them. My favorite thing is to roam around in a fenced-in yard and be by my humans. I definitely want a fenced-in yard, as this is something I grew up with and it’s my favorite place to hang out in the sunshine (and watch the squirrels!). I am also looking for people who aren’t gone too much, I don’t like being left home alone all day!

Smoke’s adoption fee is $200 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 are home a lot of the time and want to meet Smoke, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Cat of the Week: Roamin’

Julia D Cat of the Week

Introducing ROAMIN’… Doesn’t he have the coolest fur coat?  Check him out!  He is totally white until you get to his tail – and his tail is an unexpected SOLID BLACK!  He also has a big spot of black fur on the bottom left rear paw ( looks like he stepped on an ink pad!) and a little dot of black on his right rear paw, too!  AND his eyes are the lightest yellow color this foster mom has ever seen!  He’s just a real COOL CAT who is super friendly, loving, vocal, and just an overall great cat who needs a loving home!  He’s rather tall for a cat too – which makes him very striking when you see him strolling towards you – like a model!! 🙂 He got his name from how he was found… he was ROAMIN’ around a dangerous highway and apparently had been out on his own for a while as he was quite thin.

Roamin’ has a very sweet personality, he’s affectionate, talkative, (and for a big boy, he has a rather soft ‘voice’) and enjoys resting on a soft bed and kneading his paws!  So far he hasn’t been too interested in toys other than a catnip toy; we guesstimate he is about 6 years old and don’t know if he’s ever even had toys to play with!

The adoption fee for Roamin’ is $85 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, and a microchip with free lifetime registration.

Volunteer of the Month: Becky Harris

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Becky Harris is somewhat of a newbie at Last Hope but she’s jumped in with both feet and is really making a difference in the lives of the cats at the Adoption Center.

She comes in and cleans litter boxes, cleans cat habitats, gives food and water, administers medication, gives baths (have YOU ever tried to give a cat a bath?!), and does other general cleaning. She also decided the kitties needed a little pampering and made them fleece cushions for their cages. The cats love having a soft place to sleep. Becky also invented a bed for the incontinent kitties so they have a soft place to sleep, too. She took a trip to the fabric store and a few hours later she had it: She made the beds out of vinyl fabric with a way to attach the piddle pads. Ingenious! Everyone deserves a soft place to land, right?

Becky says, “I like volunteering at LHAR because I truly admire the work they do.” The cats are lucky to have such a dedicated volunteer. And the other volunteers are lucky, too because she brings in cookies for them to snack on! Thank you for all the hard work, Becky! And for the cookies!

Dog of the Week: Baron

Julia D Dog of the Week

Baron has such unique features, his pictures just don’t do him justice! He has quite the overbite and big soft jowls so he truly looks like he has a little shar-pei or hound mix in his makeup. He sort of reminds us of Bruce the shark from Finding Nemo!  Baron isn’t a big fan of being left home alone for long days, he prefers to hang with his people and not be left out of the fun. He has lived in a home before, so potty training is in his repertoire but crate training is still a work in progress. Baron is a fit in a home as an only dog or with a female dog that is non-dominant and playful and around his size (60ish pounds).  Baron is not a fit with cats. Kids aged 12+ are a-okay with Baron. He is about two years old.

Baron’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.

Happy Tail: Beans (FKA Lucky)

Julia D Happy Tails

It was the peak of the pandemic when Jason and Samantha decided to adopt a cat. They did what we hope every potential adopter would do: Really thought through the kind of pet they wanted and what traits would fit best into their lifestyle. Because of the pandemic, they were not able to meet Beans (formerly Lucky) before the adoption. But the foster mom, Jody, really helped them get to know Beans through videos and giving them information about what kind of cat she is. Samantha said the process was deliberately kind of slow – but slow for the best reasons. She felt that Last Hope really cared about placing pets in the right home, not just any home. They appreciated the time and care we took in matching pets with families.

It took Beans a few days to get settled into their home but soon she was napping in the sunlight on the floor. Jason and Samantha made sure she had plenty of appropriate places to scratch and also space to be alone when she wanted. She likes to follow a schedule and always wakes them up at 8:00 with purring.

Beans loves to hang out with them on the couch watching TV. She likes to watch Disney movies with cats in them! She loves her wand toy and fake mice and absolutely loves being brushed. But her favorite thing seems to be snuggling with them at night. Jason and Samantha love everything about Beans and are happy she is schedule-driven and that her schedule meshes with theirs so well.

Jason and Samantha really thought about what kind of pet would fit best into their lifestyle before going through the adoption process. We wish everyone would put that much consideration into it when thinking of adopting. Beans is a very lucky kitty!
