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!

H.O.P.E. is truly a class act organization. They take the time to make sure every animal is placed in a good home. Sometimes this creates a longer process or delayed placement; however, the benefit of not having to save the animal again far outweighs the process. The community knows that when they adopt an animal from HOPE, the animal has been loved and cared for beyond expectations. This is proven in approved adopters coming back for additional furry family members. H.O.P.E has amazing volunteers that give their heart and soul and are the biggest asset to this organization.

Growth! Recruit additional volunteers and fosters to support other cities and save more animals.

The HOPE village is an amazing group of people who do whatever it takes to take care of dogs and cats that others have discarded. They see the potential in animals that others don't and persevere until they find the right match for each animal entrusted to them. If you are looking for a great place to volunteer, this group is it!

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 just had a Dog and People Fashion show at the Doubletree Hotel to let people see our dogs that are up for adoption. We all had a wonderful time and the dogs were adorable in their outfits! They are always trying to make more money so they can save more from the "Kill" shelters! Cats and Dogs.. These people are so dedicated to saving the lives of our furry friends. My own dog Gina is now eleven years old and have had her since she was about fifteen months..She is a Border/Collie/Lab and the love of my life! Lillian Kunz..

I have been going over to PetSmart almost every Saturday for a little more than a year. I love to be able to hold the dogs that are up for adoption, to snuggle with them and love them. Some are very young only a few months old and some are over a year or more..I first became involved with HOPE back in 2003 when I was able to adopt my Border Collie/Lab who was then about fifteen months old. Come July, she will be eleven and is the love of my life! She used to go out for walks with my husband but since we lost him almost four years ago she now gets to go for rides in the car! She was trained by some man to be a guard dog and believe me she is just that! When we first got her she wouldn't warm up to my husband for almost a month, but soon they became best friends! And now I leave her here at home so I can go give love to all the dogs that we have up for adoption. Margaret and all the volunteers are so good with all the dogs and cats to see that they will go to just the right new forever homes! Thank you HOPE "Helping Out Pets Everyday" for Gina my baby and forever friend...

Almost nine years ago I had to have my dog put down as she was 14 years old and was very sick.. I called HOPE and they had just the right dog for me, Diamond Lil, who is now Gina! She really has been my love as I was going through cancer and had just lost my sister to cancer. Thank you HOPE for being there with my beautiful BorderCollie Lab now 10 years old. I am thrilled when Saturdays arrive so I can go to PetSmart and get a chance to hold and love the dogs that are up for adoption! They love to snuggle and be held and loved as so many don't have a foster home. I would love it if we had more funds so we could save many more from the "kill shelters". Just a few weeks ago one of the dogs got adopted to a loving family, and when they came in to see the dog it was instant love for all of fhem! Brody was kissing them all over their faces and you just knew it was love at first sight! I was so happy for all of them. .Lillian

I have been with HOPE for 6 years as a volunteer and am still amazed at the care taken to make sure a dog or cat is placed in the right home even if it takes months. HOPE does not give up on any animal and has saved over 1000 animals in its ten year in business. We have adopted three dogs from them and now foster. This is a great organization.

HOPE is the best animal rescue! HOPE saves dogs and cats by rescuing them from high-kill shelters just before they are to be euthanized. Many of these animals have suffered neglect and abuse before they wound up in the shelter, so HOPE provides them needed medical care, which can be extensive and costly, as well as plenty of love and attention. When the animals have been rehabilitated, they are adopted to good homes. HOPE's screening and placement process assures that these animals will never wind up homeless again.

In addition to its rescue efforts, HOPE is also involved in sponsoring spay/neuter programs and other animal advocacy activities. HOPE is a tremendous asset to the community, doing what city and county institutions won't do.

I found HOPE 9yrs ago. I was new to the Upland area and found a dog in an alley. I had nowhere to take the dog except the local shelter. I didn't want to but had no choice. We have all heard the horror stories of the shelters. I was so worried about the dog that I searched for a local rescue that could keep an eye on him in the shelter and let me know if the dog was in any danger.
That's how I found HOPE. I contacted them and they agreed to keep an eye on the dog. It was a happy ending as the owner came for him.
I was so impressed how they really cared about a dog found in the street that I started volunteering with HOPE. And I still do!
This group has amazing people that really care!

Because I know what a wonderful organization HOPE is, I became a volunteer. Every time I have a little extra cash I donate it to HOPE because I know it will be used to save lives. There is so much more to saving a life then just getting them safe or out of the shelter when they are on death row, sometimes it's literally minutes before they are killed. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication and love to save a life. And this team at HOPE has all of that and more!! I am proud to be a part of it!

I found HOPE when I found a lost dog on the street, I had no choice but to take him to the shelter, I could not stand the thought of him getting stuck there if his owner did not come for him so I contacted HOPE.
I sent an e-mail to Margaret, the president and asked her to look out for him &
keep an eye on him so the worst wouldnt happen, she did not hesitate to help!! Luckly the owner did come for him so it was a happy ending. I was so touched that this rescue group cared to help me keep an eye on a dog found in the street that I made a donation and started volunteering!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen many wonderful dogs & cats find forever homes and have even asked HOPE to take a few from people that could not keep their pets any longer, they have never hesitated to help!!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would love to see HOPE expand and get a facility so we could take as many dogs & cats that we could and never have to worry about funding. That would make HOPE unstoppable!

Helping Out Pets Everyday is one of the best rescues in the area. They take dogs and cats out of high-kill shelters to find a new loving home. Adoption is an application process which includes an interview and home visit to find the best match for cat or dog and adopter. Dogs and cats are given a medical disease clearance, vaccinations, microchip, spay or neutering.

H.O.P.E. (Helping Out Pets Everyday) is a unique organization that goes above and beyond for every animal in it's care. They make sure that these animals that have been abused, hurt, scared and unwanted, are placed in forever homes where the rest of their lives are lived out with love and security. I have had the opportunity to volunteer with this group for several events including the Dog-gone-walk-a-thon and have experienced first hand their love and care for their animals. An OUTSTANDING organization!

H.O.P.E. is a blessing for those animals in need. Those that have been left to die by the side of the road, those discarded by people who took them in but got bored with them, those animals that are about to be put down at the shelter... H.O.P.E. has helped get animals spayed and neutered for people who are willing to love an animal but can't afford to have it done. It's an organization that genuinely cares about the care and well being of the animal. They work hard to find forever homes for these animals who so need to be loved. It really does give these animals HOPE! Thank goodness for organizations like H.O.P.E!

I have been a volunteer with HOPE for 4 years and am so proud of that! Our group is led by someone who owns her role and the responsibilities that come with it. With her leadership and the passion and commitment of the entire group, we have made amazing accomplishments in our community including increasing adoption rates, having a new shelter built, and increasing public awareness. Great job to everyone!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

our new animal shelter, set to open in a few months and our increasing adoption faire numbers.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do exactly what Margaret does: establish myself as a leader in adoptions, advocacy, and education and keep the entire group informed of related issues, both on a community and state/national level.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the passion this group shares to help animals in more ways than just finding great forever homes.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

passionate, dedicated and trully a team!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save countless animals' lives through advocacy, education, spay/neuter, and adoption!

Ways to make it better...

not applicable.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money, of course, and the lack of community education/support. It's hard to end animal suffering when thousands of unwanted kittens, puppies, etc. are born because someone couldnt be bothered to spay/neuter their pet.

One thing I'd also say is that...

HOPE is a great team and deserves to win!

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.
