Dog of the Week: Posey

Julia D Dog of the Week

Posey the Perfect Puppy, sounds like a fairytale right? Well, this little girl is an absolute dream and will make a terrific dog for a lucky owner! Posey is picking up very quickly on kennel and house training, she greets new people politely, and plays well with other animals. If Posey is going to be paired with a cat in her new home, they will need to be dog savvy as she doesn’t understand boundaries yet! We think that Posey has all sorts of potential and know that she will do great with obedience training as she is already demonstrating what great listening skills she has and she makes great eye contact. Posey is all puppy when it comes to playing with toys and will gladly grab sticks in the yard to romp with. She is less than a year old.

Posey’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 think Posey is the perfect puppy for you and would like to meet her, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Cat of the Week: Cherry

Julia D Cat of the Week

Introducing Cherry!  This beauty came in as a stray in late April 2021 and gave birth to 4 beautiful kittens on 5/17/21.  She was a very loving mama to her kittens; they were all adopted several months ago and now it is her time to find her furrever home… how about with you? She was in a foster home with both large and small dogs and several kitties and it was an active household where people came and went quite often.  She mostly kept to herself after her kittens were adopted.  She is OK with other cats and dogs, but we think a quiet home with not a lot of commotion going on would be the best fit for her where she could come out and hang around with humans and not be startled so easily.   Her favorite time with her foster mom was when she was in the kitchen or in the bathroom – as you can see from her pictures!  The most time she spent with her was when her foster mom would be going towards the bathroom – she would run into the bathroom with her just before the door closed so the other animals couldn’t interrupt their time together! We guesstimated her birthday was around May 2019, so she’ll be 3 years old soon.

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

Dog of the Week: Zero

Julia D Dog of the Week

Zero is my name on paper, but I answer to Zora and it suits me much better! My friends at Last Hope have taken great care of me since I joined them. I had an old injury to my back leg that required surgery but I’m all healed now and ready for a long and healthy life with an owner who will keep me active and give me lots of love.  In my foster home, I live with another female boxer and I sure enjoy the company, but I wouldn’t mind being an only dog as long as you weren’t gone too long during the day.  I’ve never been introduced to cats, I’ve seen them outside through the neighbor’s fence and don’t really feel like I want to chase them. Zero is about four years old.

Zero’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.

If you think Zero is no dud and you would like to meet her, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Cats of the Week: Blayne and Gavin

Julia D Cat of the Week

We are featuring two brothers this week that would love to find a home together. Blayne and Gavin both love food and that’s definitely the way to their hearts! They are a little shy at first but when it comes to mealtime, they are your best friends. They would likely do well with a quiet dog. Blayne and Gavin would do best in a quiet home with no kids or older kids who will respect their space.

Their adoption fee includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, and a microchip with free lifetime registration.

Dog of the Week: Orbit

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi, my name is Orbit (AKA Sadie). I am one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. I am young and love to play and would enjoy an energetic dog in my forever home. I love people too and will greet everyone with puppy kisses. I haven’t met any young kids yet, but I get along with older kids, my three foster dog siblings, and a cat. If the cat in my foster home would allow it, I would cuddle and play with her. I do fairly well with giving them space if they aren’t dog-friendly. I am a huge cuddler and I think I’m a lap dog. Who says a 55-pound dog can’t sit in your lap? I also LOVE car rides!  I came into the rescue underweight, so as you can guess I love food. I am very food motivated, so training should be a snap. Another thing on my wish list is a home with a fenced-in yard because I love to run and play! I will make a great family dog and will be missed at my foster home when you adopt me!

Orbit’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.

Happy Tail: Lola, Sophie, and Little

Julia D Happy Tails

Douglas and Kennon had adopted from Last Hope in the past and also help the animals by donating funds and food. Then they met the chihuahuas Lola, Sophie, and Little and decided to adopt them as well. They adopted all three because they didn’t want to split them up. They also love older dogs and knew it is difficult to find them forever homes.

The three of them settled right into their new home and delight Kennon and Douglas with their chi chi antics. They love to snuggle in blankets and watch TV. They have a pool so in the summer they will lounge by the water and watch the ducks come and go and in the fall it will be blankets and bonfires.

Sounds like they have wonderful lives ahead of them!

Volunteer of the Month: Jennifer Tritle

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Jennifer hasn’t been with us very long (since January), but she’s already made a big impact. She takes care of the cats at the Adoption Center, has made a couple of vet runs, and some cat pick-ups for intakes. Jennifer also helped out at the St. Patrick’s Day parade and helped deliver all the Kitten Kisses this Valentine’s Day.

But she considers fostering Garfield the cat the greatest contribution she’s made. Garfield is a sweet older cat with FIV but he fits right into their family while waiting for a forever home.

About her work at Last Hope she says, “Last hope has turned into family and I’m so glad I have found them.”

We’re glad you found us, too! Thank you for your willingness to work hard and your dependability.

Cat of the Week: Arnold

Julia D Cat of the Week

Arnold is finally ready to find his forever home. He came to Last Hope in rough shape but with some TLC from the volunteers and vets Arnold is looking so handsome!! He had surgery to fix his eyelids and while they do still get a little runny occasionally the vets can’t find anything further wrong with them. He loves to explore and lay in the sun! He especially loves snuggles from his favorite people. Arnold can be a little picky about his cat friends and definitely doesn’t like dogs.

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

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

Dog of the Week: Bruce

Julia D Dog of the Week

Bruce the dog has all the best qualities of everyone’s favorite famous “Bruce!” Like Bruce Springsteen, he has a great singing voice and loves a chance to bark for a treat! This dog doesn’t need to be “The Boss” though, we think he’ll do great in a home with another young and active pup. Cats, well he’s curious but cautious.  A dog-savvy older cat could be a fit as long as they’re “Born to Run”. Like Bruce Willis, he’s an action man and will keep you on your toes. “Yippie-kai-yay”…let’s play in the yard or get out for an adventure!  No “Sixth Sense” is needed with training this dog, Bruce is treat motivated and a people pleaser so should pick up new commands quickly! No PG-13 rating on this pup either, we think he could be a fit with children that are comfortable/familiar with medium size and energy dogs.

Bruce’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 have stars in your eyes and would like to meet Bruce, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Cats of the Week: Shakira and Matteo

Julia D Cat of the Week

Shakira and her buddy Matteo are the best of friends! We always catch them cuddling and napping together. They would love to find a quiet home together to call their own. They can be a bit timid and would do best in a home with no kids or crazy dogs. They would likely adjust ok to a quiet dog who would give them their space. They will need a patient mom or dad – someone to give them time to come around and learn to trust in their new environment. They’re still a little shy here at our Adoption Center. But once you earn their trust their purrs and love will be worth the wait!

Shakira has been spayed and Matteo has been neutered, they are both up to date on vaccinations and preventives, and both come with microchips with free lifetime registration.
