George  Nelly

We have TWO Cats of the Week this week because Nelly (black) and George (orange) are a bonded pair and need to George 3
Nelly 2find a home together.

This bonded pair are the perfect couple! They love to lounge around in the sun and play together all day! They do great with other cats and are quite a curious duo. Nelly loves to climb and explore and George will come looking for love from his human friends as often as he can. They would love to have a house to call their own and a family to get lots of love from every day!

The Happy Tail of Lola and Macy

Lola and Macy Happy Tail

Kegan and Lindsey adopted two puppies from Last Hope recently and generously agreed to share their Happy Tail.

They decided to adopt from Last Hope because they were able to meet the puppies at Petco and were able to take them home for a “trial run.” They chose the puppies based on their temperament, how adorable they are, and because they just seemed to “click.” Kegan and Lindsey decided to name the puppies Lola and Macy. In the picture, Lola is on the right and Macy on the left.

After the first night in their new home, Lola and Macy seemed to realize they were really home and were excited to be there! They are puppies so there have been some mishaps and accidents, as expected, but overall they are very bright dogs and are learning quickly. They love that the dogs can be independent of each other but also get along well and entertain each other. “We love how different they are and each one seems to fit better with one of us, based on our personalities, but they love and respect us both the same as well. They entertain us and brighten our day, every day. Life is never slow or dull now.”

In addition to loving their new family members, they said this about Last Hope: “We would recommend Last Hope to anyone. It was such a great experience and process. We felt as prepared and informed as we could be in the adoption.”

Thank you, Kegan and Lindsey, for taking such good care of our pups and for sharing your Happy Tail!


Dog of the Week: Sassy

Julia D Dog of the Week


Sassy 2Hi! My name is Sassy, but my friends call me Sarsaparilla and Sassafras! I am a medium sized Mastiff mix with a giant-sized personality! 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. They can lie on me and pet me all they want and I will just smile with delight at the attention. I am still learning all of my words. When grown up people tell me to sit, I sit on their lap. I love to be close to them! I really like food too so you could use that to teach me lots of things. I like to please people so it won’t take me long to learn anything you want to teach me.

Sassy 4I am already house trained and I like a 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 or I will go in a crate. I have lived with other dogs and cats before. I get along with most other dogs as long as you introduce me properly.

If you want to know more about me please email You can fill out an application for me HERE. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $200.


Cat of the Week: Sophie

Julia D Cat of the Week


Sophie came from a really bad situation, and was in terrible health when she came into her foster home. She was very underweight and had a terrible upper respiratory infection. However, you should see her now! She is a healthy and happy young lady with a ton of energy! She is afraid of dogs, but gets along well with other cats and children. She is a bit timid around men. She loves to chase a laser pen light and snuggle with her foster family members. Sophie eats well and uses a scratching post. Sophie has the energy of a kitten but is also sweet and loving. Sophie is FIV/FeLV negative, she is spayed and current with her vaccinations.

Please contact for more information about her. An adoption application can be completed HERE.

**June is Adopt A Cat Month and Last Hope is celebrating by reducing the adoption fee on adult cats to $25! Sophie is eligible for this special so don’t hesitate to contact us about her**
