Cat of the Week: BamBam

Julia D Cat of the Week

BamBam is about 9 months old and looking for his forever home. BamBam’s glorious brown tabby fur coat with those beautiful tabby stripes along with those cute little black ear tips makes this big boy one STUNNING HUNK-A-HUNKA! He’s very playful and although he hasn’t been introduced to dogs or kids yet, he’s still young enough to adapt quickly to them.

BamBam’s adoption fee is $100 and includes his neuter, microchip (with free lifetime registration), current vaccinations, and a FeLV/FIV test.

If this little Flintstone sparks your interested and you’d like to meet him, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Dog of the Week: Gypsy

Julia D Dog of the Week

Gypsy is a very affectionate, sweet, and loving girl who just wants to be with people all the time. She loves everyone she meets, even children, and loves to be helping you with your day-to-day activities. If you work from home or are gone for only short periods of time in a day, this would be great for her! She is the perfect co-pilot in the car. She also enjoys going for walks but needs to be held tight when other dogs get too close. Gypsy is seeking a home where she will be the only animal. She will not be happy sharing her space with dogs, cats, or small animals. She’s about 10 years old.

Gypsy’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.

Volunteer of the Month: Joe Moore

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Joe and Libby

Beginning in about 2014, Joe Moore has been contributing many hours and much love to the dogs of Last Hope. He heard about Last Hope because a friend had adopted from us. Joe adopted a sibling of that dog, Libby, and that started his volunteering journey. He says that everything he does is because of Libby.

Foster Dog Dixie

Joe has fostered several dogs, walks dogs at the Adoption Center, has been a dog handler at events, he helps with tranports and vet visits, and donates money and goods. He also talks about adoption and Last Hope with people considering welcoming a pet into their homes.

When asked why he likes volunteering Joe said, “I like volunteering for Last Hope because I love the animals and Last Hope is a phenomenal organization. There is such a tremendous need I just can’t turn my back on them. I wish I could do more and in a couple years when I retire, I hope to do so. It just makes me feel good when I’m around the dogs.”

Foster Dog Josie

He also encourages people to foster: “It’s one of the most difficult but rewarding experiences you’ll have.”

We’re grateful that Joe chooses to spend so much of his free time helping out the dogs of Last Hope. He is dedicated and dependable and we could use more people like Joe!

Cat of the Week: Leo

Julia D Cat of the Week

Leo is a sweet guy with one eye! But this doesn’t stop him from being a playful, affectionate, and easy-going boy! Leo does take a little time to warm up to new people, we think he may be a touch hesitant because of his missing eye. He earned his name because he roared like a lion when we first met him! Leo has a great personality and will be best suited to a home with older children. Leo has the most beautiful orange and white coat that he maintains wonderfully! He loves all sorts of toys but his favorite thing to do is to just sit and look out the window. Leo is about four years old and his front paws are declawed.

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

Happy Tail: Russell (formerly Rusty)

Julia D Happy Tails

Kevin and Kylie learned about Last Hope through friends and family who adopted and/or volunteered here. They have a soft spot for dachshunds so when they saw Russell (Rusty at the time), they quickly fell in love. The adoption process was easy and smooth and they credit that to the volunteer who helped with the adoption and made sure it was a good transition.

Russell (also known as Russellroni, Russell Sprout, Russbus, Goose, Gus, and Goober!) was timid when he first moved into their home. But they just knew it would take some time and patience and they were right. Russell now fits right into the family and is thriving.

He has a couple of favorite soft toys (a lime and a cookie) with which he can entertain himself for ours. Russell doesn’t have many teeth so he can’t really hold onto the toys in his mouth. But that doesn’t stop him! He essentially plays soccer with them, kicking them all over the house. He’s a real love bug and is always ready for cuddles.

In addition to cookie and lime soccer, Russell enjoys doing perimeter checks around the backyard, barking at the birds and squirrels, keeping tabs on the other dogs in the home, and napping – a lot!

Kevin and Kylie gave Russell the time and patience he needed to feel comfortable in their home and it has paid off. He is now a happy, well-adjusted member of the family. Thank you for providing him with the time he needed to blossom!

Dog of the Week: Bond

Julia D Dog of the Week

The name’s Bond. Beagle Bond. I’m on a mission to find a new family with the help of my rescue friends. I’m a young agent, only around 2 years old, but I’m smart and a fast learner. I’m also handsome which makes me a popular fella. I wouldn’t mind sharing my home with another agent (dog) but I might need some help learning to share my secret spy weapons (aka toys and resources).  While I don’t hurt cats they get me very excited and I love to chase them.  I am great with all people including little ones.  I walk well on my leash and I am house-trained and I do well in my kennel when my foster mom is at work.  Can you help a very friendly agent complete my mission?

Bond’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’d like to set up a spy meeting with Bond, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Cat of the Week: Pippa

Julia D Cat of the Week

My name is Pippa, Pip for short, and my foster mom says I’m the friendliest and most fun cat! I love any kind of toy—feathers, stuffed mice, little fuzzy balls, scratching posts, cat trees—I am busy all day just playing. I also like to talk; whenever there’s music or anyone talking, I talk too because I want to be included in the conversation! I love cuddles and am super chill about being picked up. I am fantastic with kids and other animals, and I’m one of the cutest sights you’ll see when I want a belly rub (see picture for proof!). Pippa is about two years old.

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

If you’d like to meet this sweet little Pip, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Dog of the Week: Raleigh

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi there, I’m Raleigh! I am a little shy so it takes me a few seconds to warm up to people, but once you give me pets I will LOVE you! I am around 2 years old and have a medium build, I have gorgeous blue eyes that will steal your heart. I am a very clean boy and try to keep my kennel nice and clean as well! I am a little hard of hearing but with training, I believe I will flourish when using hand signs as commands. I love to cuddle and will rest my head on your lap when I am feeling sleepy. I am unsure of how I feel with other dogs so a chill younger playmate will be best! I’ve briefly met a cat, I was very curious about them but respectful.

Raleigh’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’d like to meet Raleigh, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Dog of the Week: Charlotte

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi, I’m Charlotte! I am around 10 months old. I love my humans and get super excited about meeting new people! I am still in my puppy stage so I may need a little bit of help learning manners. I do a very good job of going potty outside but I do try my best to let you know when I need to go out. I am a foodie so training me with training treats would make me very eager to learn. I am a very smart girl with a lot of love (and kisses of course) to give! Just because I am still young so I haven’t been exposed to other dogs or cats, so I may need a pup with my same energy level to help me get used to playing. I do well on walks around other dogs but I do get a little scared when it comes to meeting them close up so I will need a very patient new owner to help me get more comfortable.

Charlotte’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 you’d like to meet Charlotte, please complete an adoption application HERE.
