Dog of the Week: Damon

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

Meet Damon. He is a 12-1/2 year old Husky looking for his forever home. Other than allergies, he is in great health and loves to go for walks. He can also be a big couch potato if that’s what you choose to do for the day.  Damon knows sit, lay down, shake and can even give high fives. His best talent though is his singing. Have you ever heard a Husky sing? It’s entertaining and will make you smile.

Damon does great with people but will need to be the only dog. We are looking for a dog-savvy person that is familiar with his breed and will have time to spend with him. Damon is not destructive and can be left loose when his people are gone. He might sleep with you if he decides that he needs to cuddle.

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

Jimmie says Fifi has settled into their lives very well. She is always at his feet and when he leaves the house, she’s looking for him.

Fifi has filled out nicely and loves to play with toy mice or any toy-like thing she can find!

Jimmie says, “She is our sweet little friend, very affectionate and seeks attention constantly. We thank Last hope adoption center for giving us the chance to love and care for Fifi.”

Thank you, Jimmie, for loving and caring for Fifi and giving her a wonderful forever home!

Happy Tail: Rip (fka Luke)

Julia D Happy Tails 2 Comments

Mandy provided a foster home for Rip but he got along so well with her dog, Dash, that she felt it would be a good fit to make it permanent and adopt Rip. She said that it was like Rip chose them – he walked into the house as a scared and nervous dog but right away felt at ease in the home and jumped right into their routine as if he had been there his whole life.

Because Rip can be quite energetic (or comatose, there’s no in between!), Mandy wanted a verb for his name. She’s a teacher so she had her students look up words that meant to run around. They came up with Rip which seemed to fit him because he liked ripping around the house and he also is black with what looks like a white rip on his chest.

Rip acts like he has never been anywhere but in her house. Rip and Dash will cuddle and play all day and sometimes they have doggy play dates and Rip loves every dog he meets. He is confident and happy.

He will still get nervous around new people but if they ignore him he will be in their lap within five minutes. He’s still scared of the vacuum and fire alarm but that’s pretty common.

Rip likes to chase Dash, chew on bones, go to school to get attention from the students, hike, and snuggle. He is somewhat like a cat in that he likes to get into small places. He sat inside a bookshelf once and even got into Mandy’s parents’ entertainment center. And Amazon boxes are his favorite chairs!

It sounds like Rip found the perfect home with Mandy and Dash. Thank you for giving him his forever home and helping him get over his fear!

Volunteer of the Month: Cy Bradshaw

Julia D Volunteer of the Month Leave a Comment

Cy learned of Last Hope through his mother who had fosters some cats for us. He has been working with the dogs on the evening shift for a while now and he enjoys getting the dogs out of the Center on walks. He usually volunteers two evenings a week and sometimes on Sundays he comes to take out some of the dogs on outings.

Cy came to us with little experience with dogs but has really been a big help. He learned fast and is committed to the dogs. It just goes to show you, there is no experience needed to volunteer – we provide the training!

Thank you for all your hard work, Cy, and for being so dependable and dedicated. The dogs appreciate it, too!

Dog of the Week: Loki

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

Loki is a handsome lab mix looking for an active family to call his own!  In true lab style, he loves water and toys and has done great at doggy daycare with dogs around his size. Loki is kennel trained, great with all adults and children, but watch out…he just might steal your spot in bed and then steal your heart!   Loki has not been exposed to cats, he is best suited in a home with dogs near his size and play style.

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

Cats of the Week: Bahama Mama and Bermuda

Julia D Cat of the Week

Bahama Mama came into Last Hope with a litter of kittens. They’ve all been adopted except Bahama Mama and Bermuda. We’d love to see them go to a home together, but it’s not required.

Bahama Mama is rather shy, but she loves it when you pet her and she will snuggle on your lap once she gets used to you and her new home.  What happened to her after she had her kittens would frighten any kitty, and she had six new kittens to take care of as well as herself!  She purrs up a storm and gets along with other kitties.  She does like toys and particularly enjoys watching out the windows!

Bermuda is her daughter and she was the shyest of all the kittens but she’s doing great now and loves to snuggle with all of them and a couple of other kitties in the foster home, so we think she’ll probably get along with other kitties in a new home if properly introduced.  She is very sweet and with love, care and tenderness, she should be great with any family, too!  She likes toys and feather wands, and still has plenty of ‘kitten’ antics to entertain you with, too!

Bahama Mama is about two years old and Bermuda is about one. Bahama Mama’s adoption fee is $85 and Bermuda’s is $100 but there is a discount if you adopt both of them. The adoption fee includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip.

Dog of the Week: Bosco

Julia D Dog of the Week

Bosco is an amazing dog, and someone will be very lucky to make him their whole world! He is super smart and knows far more than just basic commands (he’s a pro at “bang, play dead!”).  He excelled at agility classes and LOVES to go for car rides. When you aren’t out exploring the world together, he’s happy to curl up and cuddle with you.   Bosco would thrive in an active home with dog experienced adults.  He’s best suited with older kids and as an only animal or with another smart and playful dog near his size (he definitely does well with females). A fenced yard and someone who wants to play catch every night would be like heaven for him!

Bosco is about four years old and his adoption fee is $250 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

If you are interested in learning more about Bosco, please complete an application HERE or email adoptions@adopthope.org.

Cat of the Week: Harmony

Julia D Cat of the Week

Harmony has been a great mom to her five kittens but it’s time to move on. She will love to hear and talk about your day. She cuddles when she wants to, but will still be close to you if she doesn’t. Harmony loves sitting in the window looking outside. She started to play with toys and rolling in catnip since moving into her foster home. Harmony didn’t have the greatest first few years of life but, you would never know it. She can live with other cats, kids, and dogs. There isn’t too much that would make her upset. Her foster mom thinks she is perfect and would love to see her in a forever home.

Harmony is a little over a year old and her adoption fee is $85 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, and a microchip with lifetime registration.

Dog of the Week: Erin

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi, My name is Erin!    I’m looking for a loving home with an owner who likes cuddling and going on long walks. It would be great to have other dogs or kids in the home but maybe no cats, please! My favorite thing is going to an enclosed park or to doggy daycare so I can run around and make all sorts of new friends! I love being outside, sometimes I bark at strangers and other dogs, but that’s because I’m trying to protect my humans! I don’t mean any harm to them.  I like to play with other dogs in my home and we can share a tug toy together.

Erin is about five years old and her adoption fee is $250 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
