Dog of the Week: Goose

Julia D Dog of the Week

Talk to me Goose! If you’re looking for a handsome medium-sized dog, you’re in luck! Goose is going to love having a fenced-in yard of his own, he wouldn’t mind living with another medium-sized playful dog and he’s good with elementary-aged kids or older. We aren’t sure about cats, he seems curious but hasn’t really been off-leash or in a home setting with one. Goose is not a fan of the kennel, so he would love an owner who isn’t gone long days. He has done alright not being kenneled for short periods of time, such as a half-day (approx 4 hours). Goose is about a year and a half old.

His 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.

Dog of the Week: Lulu

Julia D Dog of the Week

Lulu is a playful young adult heeler/terrier. She’s a perfect size of around 30lbs and LOVES to play tug-of-war with rope toys and also fetch. Lulu has gotten along well with the other dogs in her foster home and absolutely LOVES if other dogs will chase her as she likes to run FAST and outmaneuver her friends.  Lulu has a strong, energetic personality so she would do best with more laid back dogs who will allow her to boss them around a bit and an owner familiar with heeler traits.  She has loved playing with the large breed puppies in her foster home.  She might be good at learning agility or flyball as she is extremely food motivated and smart!  Lulu does best with older kids and adults.  Because Lulu loves food so much, she should be fed in her crate if other dogs are around and put in her crate if food is out.  With some continued training this will improve as she is still young and working on learning better impulse control.  Lulu definitely wants to chase cats, so a home without cats or other small animals would be best for her. If you are looking for some excitement and energy in your life and are willing to keep Lulu stocked up on sturdy chew toys, she would love to come join your household!

Lulu’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.

Cat of the Week: Snow

Julia D Cat of the Week

Snow is a sweet and sassy little mama who is ready to find a home of her own. She came to us with her three older kittens after being found living outdoors. She’s still not super sure about too much attention but when we take it slow with her she really seems to like a good head scratch or pat. She would do best in a home where she is the queen of the castle and there are no other cats. She may be a little too sassy for young children as well. Snow is between two and three years old.

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

Dog of the Week: Billy Bob

Julia D Dog of the Week

Billy is a sweet old man who loves to eat, sleep, and give kisses. Billy does have a heart murmur and takes daily meds for that and a pain med for some soreness in his legs/hips. But don’t worry, he loves to take his meds! Billy has some spotting in his eyes, this has been evaluated by our vet and is just something to monitor at this point and was said to be normal for his age. Billy is happy to lay on the couch with you or sleep in one of his many dog beds. He loves treats and uses doggy puzzles and Kong toys to get them! Now that it’s getting warmer out he is showing us that he loves to smell around the yard, probably hunting rabbits. We are working on potty training and he is learning to tell us when he needs to go out, but he does have some accidents in the house if we go too long without a potty break. He will gladly wear a belly band. Billy would prefer to have someone home with him most of the time. He does not like kennels but has done fine when he’s been left snoozing on his bed for a few hours while his foster family runs errands.  At night they tuck him into his bed on the floor of our bedroom and he goes right to sleep. He is about thirteen years old.

Billy Bob’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.

Volunteer of the Month: Shannon Cornelius

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Shannon began volunteering for Last Hope in 2018 after searching for a rescue for which she could foster dogs. She decided to volunteer at the Adoption Center first and then move on to fostering.

Since she began, Shannon and her family have fostered 11 dogs (one was a foster fail!), she helps with events and intakes, and she likes to take the Center dogs on walks or outings whenever she can.

About her volunteer experience, Shannon says, ” I have become passionate about my work with Last Hope and the rescue in general. I will talk about Last Hope and my doggy friends to anyone who shows interest for as long as they will listen. Lol! I love seeing dogs come out of their shell and grow in their time with us, and there is nothing better than a dog recognizing you and being excited to see you and play or cuddle with you (except seeing them go to a perfect forever home). I have also developed fond relationships with two-legged friends at the rescue. My work with Last Hope is definitely a bright spot in my life.”

In addition to Pepper, the dog that was a foster fail, Shannon and her family have two cats (Lynx and Alex), and a Guinea pig named Mango.

Shannon is very dedicated and dependable and we are lucky to have her as a volunteer!

He is about four and a half years old.

Happy Tail: Momo (formerly Captain Morgan)

Julia D Happy Tails

Samantha was looking for a kitten but when she saw Momo (FKA Captain Morgan) he melted her heart and she knew he was the one. When he came to his new home, it took him just a few days to take over the house! He was an instant couch potato. His life now is full of his favorite things: Naps, snuggling, getting spoiled, and zoomies around the house each morning.

Samantha says, “He is FIV+, which seemed daunting at first but he’s like any other cat and just gets some special vitamins and supplements every day. He’s a handsome and healthy little dude.”

Being FIV+ does not prevent a cat from living a full and happy life, as Momo could tell you. We’re thankful Momo found a soft place to land in his forever home with Samantha!

Dog of the Week: Acorn

Julia D Dog of the Week

Acorn is seeking a playful and active home to match her spirited personality!

She would be fine in a home with elementary-aged children or older.

Acorn’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.

Acorn is a great girl that deserves a great home. If you’d like to meet her, please complete an adoption application HERE.

Cat of the Week: Raksha

Julia D Cat of the Week

This beautiful lady may be a little sassy but all she really wants is a little love and attention!

Raksha came to us with her four kittens. Now that they’re all grown up she is ready to find a forever home of her own. Raksha is about three years old.
