I have volunteered with HOPE for more than 10 years and am constantly amazed by the selfless dedication of our leadership and volunteers.
HOPE is a wonderful rescue that is truly that...an organization devoted to the rescue and wellness of animals. The team works together in numerous ways to find the right forever homes for homeless animals. In addition, the group is dedicated to education and to helping our community at large. I am blessed to be part of such a great group!
My first experience with H.O.P.E. began approximately 7 years ago. I fostered a cat with the intention of adopting, providing the cat was able to withstand the non-stop activity of my mischievous 4 chihuahuas. I did not choose the cat - I asked H.O.P.E. to suggest one of their rescues, based on my home situation. They presented me with a young male who they felt had the perfect temperament for our family - and they were right! Since that time I adopted a second cat from H.O.P.E. and eventually became a steady volunteer because I was drawn to their continuous and tireless work to save dogs and cats and to make sure these animals go to a loving forever home.
I discovered H.O.P.E. a couple of years ago and was quite impressed by the commitment they have to finding homes for cats and dogs. I did some checking into the organization because I do understand that all rescue organizations are not top notch. I was pleased to find that H.O.P.E. went above and beyond my expectations. They "know" their animals - take the time to determine what environment would be best for each animal to be adopted into- i.e. an environment without kids, or an environment where they are the only animal, recognizing that each is an individual entity who comes with their particular needs. When I decided to get a cat, I asked the organization if I could foster a cat because I had dogs and wasn't sure that a cat would be comfortable in my home. They were completely agreeable and after doing a home visit and meeting my dogs, they actually chose a cat for me that they thought would fit in perfectly....and he did, so I ended up adopting him. When I adopted him, all his shots were up to date, he had been neutered and was in perfect physical condition and I learned that this is the level of care they give all their rescues. Several months later I wanted to find another cat and asked Margaret and Janis who they would suggest that would fit into our family - and again, they were spot on and I have two perfect cats for our family. H.O.P.E. volunteers know all their animals - their quirks, their likes and dislikes, and they are tireless in their efforts to find the right home. They focus on finding the right match for each animal. I appreciate that quality because too many shelters will just give an animal to anyone who will pay to adopt one, not ensuring that the animal is going to the best place possible. I discovered that they work closely with the Upland Animal Shelter and take on as many animals as they can handle. H.O.P.E. does many community fund raisers, not only to raise money for their organization, but to educate the general population about animal rescue. I found their work in the community to be invaluable and am thankful that we have such an organization in our area
HOPE animal rescue is a fabulously thorough rescue organization. They take great pride in placing animals in their forever home for the final time. It's not about moving inventory. It's about finding the right home where the dog/cat knows it's their forever family and never has to fear being on the street or in a shelter again. They work tirelessly to ensure they do best by the animal. Below are a couple of my furry family members that I adopted thru HOPE.
I've had the joy working with HOPE in many capacities: volunteer, foster mama, board member and adoptee. The more you get involved, the more you want to do. This organization and it's volunteers have the largest hearts! They continue to save animals from euthanasia and they figure out the money aspects later. They provide the best care and treatment right down to dental if required. Above and beyond is there motto. You know, hands down, that if you get a HOPE animal they are loved, well taken care of and ready for their forever home. All my furry family members have come from HOPE and I'm grateful for each one of them!
I've adopted two dogs from Helping Out Pets Everyday. This rescue is very diligent about finding the right homes for their rescues. The dogs and cats receive medical care, vaccinations, spayed/neutered and microchipped. They have a group of volunteers that are very helpful in giving a potential adopter information about a dog or cat that they have interest in. I wouldn't hesitate to adopt again through this organization.
I have been a volunteer for HOPE Helping Out Pets Everyday for about seven years! I got my dog Gina back in 2003 when she was 15 months, and she is now 14 years old! I love her and so happy that when my other dog had to be put down she was available for me to adopt and take home! We are a all volunteer group of loving people who take our dogs and cats from the "kill" shelters and get them ready for their "Forever Homes"..We have fund raisers during the year to help with the upkeep of our animals as it is all through donations that we keep going! Next week on Saturday we are going to have our Annual "Walking The Runway" Fashion at the Show at the Doubletree Hotel in Claremont. These are our dogs who are up for adoption or who have been adopted and are back for the show. They are going to have the cutest outfits on to show off, along with our humans to guide them. Can't wait to see them all dressed up! Lillian Kunz
HOPE is a wonderful group of volunteers who love animals. We have a lot of dogs and cats who need a forever home who have been saved from "kill shelters"! Hope makes sure they are matched up with just the right family! You first have to fill out an application and be interviewed then they do a home visit to make sure your home and yard are just right to accomodate our furry friends. We put a lot of love into making sure our dogs and cats are ready to be adopted by just the right family! We have fund raisers to make money so we can save more from the "kill shelters" to go to loving families! My baby Gina is now 12 years old and still going strong!
We adopted our beloved 'Duke' thru HOPE. It was a great experience and they made the perfect match for us and Duke, insuring he got his forever home. Duke is now a certified therapy dog giving back. He is one of only a few dogs that is certified to go inside the veterans hospital at Loma Linda, CA. He visits wounded veterans of all kinds; men,women and veterans of every color and not matter who he visits, it is always with a wagging tail and unconditional love with comfort and compassion. Anyone looking to adopt a dog or cat really must connect with te great folks at HOPE.
I adopted two dogs from HOPE. They do an excellent job matching the people and the dog. The volunteers take the time to make sure that it is best match for all involved. The HOPE volunteers are honest about any known issues (every animal has issues, just like people) with the dogs and the cats. The group welcomes new volunteers and genuinely cares for the dogs and cats. HOPE offers low cost spaying and neutering for the local communities as a way to deal with the problem of overpopulations.
HOPE is an outstanding animal rescue group. The volunteers genuinely care about the dogs and the cats that they are helping as well as the community. They work hard to save as many dogs and cats they can that are at risk of being killed. They also sponsor low cost spaying and neutering for dogs and cats in the local area. They strive to find the best match for the dogs and cats and the people wanting to adopt. Having recently moved out of the area, I am having a difficult time finding another rescue group with the same high standards and practices.
Several years ago I was trying to find a home for an aging stray calico cat that was trying to survive in my apartment complex after her owner died. That's when I discovered HOPE, who took her on and found her a wonderful new INDOOR forever home. Since that time, HOPE has helped me place several other strays, and a litter of kittens. They have assisted with the spaying of two female cats, as well as two kittens. Of all the "rescues" I have dealt with, HOPE is the most honest, caring, and trustworthy. I never fear that a cat will end up in a worse situation when I turn it over to the loving arms of HOPE. Their pets are fosted in the homes of loving people. I think that HOPE should be a model for all no-kill rescues.
We found our beautiful Sydney in June of 2014 through HOPE. We fostered her for a couple of weeks and within a day I knew she belonged with us. I am so thankful for HOPE without them we would not have our little girl.
HOPE is a great all volunteer organization that saves the lives of dogs and cats. I have adopted two dogs from them in the last three years and they have been wonderful additions to our family. The volunteers at HOPE work hard to match the right pet with the right home so that that these animals are not later returned to the shelter.They save lives every day and I will continue to support them by attending their fundraisers and promoting their work whenever I can.
Last year I was looking for a dog that would be a good fit for me and my mom. She/he had to get along with cats and be an indoor dog. She/he also needed to be mellow enough for my mom to walk and work with. HOPE matched us up with the perfect dog. she has been in our home for a year and gets along great with the cats. She is sweet and loving, just the right dog for our family.
