We recently rescued a dog that was going to be euthanized from a shelter in Moreno Valley, CA. The dog had been sitting there with a broken pelvis and two fractures in the femur. Not until we expressed interest in rescuing her, did the shelter examine the dog. She had been sitting there in pain without the benefit of a medical evaluation. After the shelter examined the dog, they explained to Helping Out Pets Everyday, that if we didn't adopt her, she would be euthanized. We didn't turn our back on this dog. We did indeed bail her out and we immediately got her the care she needed. She needed surgery for the femur break and cage rest for the pelvis break. Well over $2000 later, she is happy and healthy, and ready for a new home. Since we are not funded by any government entity, we raised all the money ourselves to help this little girl become whole again. Our volunteers all dug deep into their own pockets and with the generosity of others who support our mission, Francine has been healed.

Our goal would be to have a facility and the funding to support our mission. We currently foster and board our dogs and cats because we don't have a facility. If we did, we could save more dogs and cats from being euthanized at the high kill shelters in San Bernardino County, CA.

HOPE is celebrating its TENTH year as a nonprofit serving not only the dogs and cats in our community but their best friends, too! Over the years we have rescued, placed and spayed/neutered over two thousand dogs and cats. We have contributed greatly to helping to reduce the pet overpopulation crisis. We are an all-volunteer organization. Our volunteers are all very professional. We share a common bond -- we care about the dogs and cats that are at risk of being euthanized at high kill facilities and do our best to save their lives, rehabilitate, medically care for them, and find them loving homes. I am honored to be a part of this wonderful group of individuals.

As the President of this all volunteer organization, I can attest to our sincere dedication and commitment to not only the dogs and cats that we rescue and save, but also the people whose lives we enrich through our thoughtful and thorough adoption process. Our commitment to the dogs/cats in the community is evident in our FREE spay/neuter program that we have offered to residents since 2005 in order to help reduce the overpopulation of pets in the City of Upland.

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

Helping Out Pets Everyday is a rescue with a heart! We believe there is a perfect home for every dog and cat. We get to know our rescues and are upfront and honest with applicants so that a good match is made, resulting in a happy dog or cat and a very happy family too. It takes time, money and dedication to do what we do.

As a member of the Board and a founding member, I know of the great work that HOPE does. We have rescued over 1000 dogs and cats and placed them in loving homes. We have helped thousands of individuals who could not afford to spay/neuter their dogs and cats. We have helped change lives through our adoption program. We have provided educational opportunities, scholarships and have had a tremendous impact on helping to reduce the pet overpopulation crisis in our community.

HOPE is dedicated to saving the lives of wonderful dogs and cats; educating the public regarding the need to spay and neuter our pets; and assisting residents of the City of Upland through our HOPE funded spay/neuter program. The dedicated volunteers show rescued dogs and cats every week at a local adoption event, and also showcase shelter cats regularly. HOPE is dedicated to finding the best homes for all of our rescues. The passion and dedication of the board members and volunteers is evident. The reward is seeing once-discarded loving pets, happy and safe in their forever homes. At the same time, many families are able to experience the love of a pet as HOPE is committed to matching the right dog or cat to each home. It's very satisfying to know that our efforts result in happy pets and happy people.

I am so proud to be apart of such a wonderful and amazing group..
HOPE is run by dedicated and loving volunteers and we are all committed to giving these precious homless animals a second chance by finding them forever loving homes that they deserve.

Most of our rescues have been dumped by people they loved and trusted and we try to make sure that doesn't happen again by doing home visits and making sure the dog or cat is the perfect match for the family/home and some people may not agree to this but we do not take this responsiblity lightly and feel that it is nessesary for the well being of the animals.

We have rescued and placed over 900 dogs and cats over the past twelve years. And we have spayed/neutered over 800 pets for Upland residents free of charge for seven years. We strive to educate people about the importance on spay and neutering their pets and we continually put on fundraisers to help raise money so we can continue to do what we do best. "Saving Homless Animals" in need of forever loving homes...

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

many, many ways... they are WONDERFUL!!!

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

Not one thing...
