Volunteer of the Month: Leah Williams

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Throughout the six years of volunteering with Last Hope Animal Rescue Leah has fostered 28 dogs and cats, organized/helped with countless events , completed/scanned paperwork, started/switched/folded hundreds of loads of laundry, attended adoption events, assisted with intakes, given her love to hundreds of cats and dogs, and many more things because she is always willing to jump in wherever when it comes to the animals.

Leah started off by searching for a dog to adopt and found Last Hope and saw the option to foster. She thought it would be a good way to find a dog that would get along with her current dog, Precious, and her daughter Rebecca who was six at the time. They fostered a couple of dogs, then Cisco came along. He was very timid at first but with love from Leah and her daughter, he slowly came around to the point where Rebecca could carry him around the house like a baby doll. When foster families end up adopting their foster dog we affectionately call that a “foster failure.” Cisco was Leah and Rebecca’s first foster failure.

Margie was their second foster failure. She started out very afraid of human interaction but through lots of patience and love, she now begs for attention and will paw at Leah’s hand to be petted and get a belly rub.

And the third foster failure was with Shira, a dog from Egypt. She had a couple of bouts with flu-like symptoms and Leah and her family nursed her back to health. It took Shira six months to get used to Leah’s now husband, Troy. She used to bark at every move he made in the house. But she came around and now she’s part of one big, happy family.

Leah says, “My life would be SO different without all of the dogs who have come and gone through my life and Last Hope.  Each of them has literally left an imprint in my heart.  It can be hard to let my fosters go, but I also know that when we find their forever home I can begin to save a new one!”

Leah and her family are true foster family gems. We know we can count on them to take in even challenging fosters and have the patience and love to help turn them around and get them ready for adoption. Thank you Leah, Rebecca, and Troy!

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi! My name is Sassy, but my friends say I’m more sweet than I am sassy! My favorite thing in this world is people! I love them all big and small. I get so excited when I meet them my whole body wiggles to show off my excitement. I have lived with kids before and am quite fond of them. I am house trained and I don’t mind my crate so I will go in there and wait for you to come back if you have to go to work. I am happy to sleep quietly at the end of a bed all night, too!

I get along with most other dogs as long as you introduce me properly.  I have graduated a basic obedience class and am working my way through obedience 2, I’m a fast learner and treat motivated! I’m looking for an owner that loves to go on adventures and is looking for a new best friend to join them!

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

Happy Tail: Piper

Julia D Happy Tails

Mary was searching online for a kitten when she came across Piper (FKA Lulu). She was particularly interested in adopting an orange tabby and Piper happened to be born on Mary’s birthday so it seemed like fate.

The adjustment period was pretty easy because Piper is a very outgoing cat. She gets along well with the other cat and dog already in the household.

Piper is very affectionate and everyone who meets her wants to take her home! She loves to sit on laps, snuggle with the dog, do food puzzles, eat, and of course knock over glasses of water.

Mary, Shaun, and Alec are loving having Piper in their home.

Thank you for giving her a loving forever home!

 

 

Dog of the Week: Rina

Julia D Dog of the Week

Meet Rina, also called Remy. She came all the way from Egypt to find her forever family. She is 8 months old and all puppy! We are working on house training and she is very close and she is crate trained. She is super sweet, playful, energetic, and cuddly. Her ideal home would have another playful dog to romp with and learn from and a physical fence is required for her as Remy loves being outside exploring, watching, and relaxing; sun, rain, or snow, that is one of her favorite places to be. Remy is very loving and loves to cuddle, give kisses, and be with her people.

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

Dog of the Week: Gunner

Julia D Dog of the Week

Meet your new sidekick! Gunner is a playful, energetic and affectionate guy who never turns off the charm. This smart cookie knows several commands and responds easily to direction. Gunner loves people and dogs alike and wants to play with everyone he encounters. He will need leash training as can pull pretty hard during walks. He is a very animated dog and will need help learning to not jump on people. Because he can be quite bouncy, Gunner would do best in a home with older children. A physically-fenced yard is also a requirement for this young guy.

Gunner’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: Jack

Julia D Cat of the Week

Hi! My name is Jack. I arrived at my foster home around Halloween time so my full name is Jack the Pumpkin King. Can you tell… I was named by my foster mom’s great grandkids.  My foster mom bottle fed me for about 3 weeks. After I got a little bigger I decided I liked my big foster cat brothers better than my brothers and sister. So my foster mom says I would be a good kitty for someone looking for a friend for their other kitty. But she says I would also do really well in a home with kids. Whenever she has kids come to visit I like to be right where they are. I pick up my ball and go play by them. I even like a house full of noisy people and love to be right in the middle of everything! I am a curious boy and like to check things out. At my foster home, I live with Katie (the dog) and 3 other kitties in the foster home. My foster mom says I am a really good boy.

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

Dog of the Week: Bella

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi, I’m Bella! I’m a sweet ol’ gal that will love sharing a comfy spot on the couch with you. I know you will adore me once you see me smile. I enjoy meeting new people and greeting them at the door. I get along with other dogs but I prefer bigger dogs that are confident. If you want a silly and playful girl that enjoys belly rubs then let my friends at Last Hope know!

Bella’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: Margo

Julia D Cat of the Week

Margo is super sweet, very playful, loves to be held and snuggled, and purrs all the time! 3/7/19 Margo update from foster mom: Margo rules the roost, she came into my house and showed the other six cats who was boss. When I clean the litterbox, she likes to “help”, it’s like she has supersonic hearing and the second I take the first scoop, she’s right there overseeing my efforts. When the boys are playing their video games, you can usually find her laying right next to them wanting to be petted or sleeping, when I’m cooking dinner, she’s under my feet supervising me. She’s great with other kitties, as long as they are ok with her being boss.  She’s also good with my two small dogs.   She may be small, but she’s mighty and has a personality to match!!!!! If you’re looking for a cat with sass, Margo’s your gal.

Margo’s adoption fee is $100 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip with lifetime registration.

Dog of the Week: Kaiya

Julia D Dog of the Week

Kaiya is a beautiful young pitbull terrier mix. She was found by a Sheriff’s officer running free with an unfortunate injury to her left eye which required that it be removed. She has made an excellent recovery and gets around without any problems or fearfulness. Kaiya has wonderful leash manners and she knows “sit” and “kennel” and is eager to learn more (especially for treats)! Kaiya has loved all the people she has met and gets along well with her fur “big brother.” However, we do recommend her forever home have a submissive male dog or she be an only dog. Kaiya likes to chase cats, but will not harm them.  Kaiya has young dog energy and will do well in a home where she has space to play and people to play with. Kaiya will thrive with someone to teach her continued obedience skills and will repay in limitless cuddles.  Kaiya will do best with older children.

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