Last Hope is an organization of HUGE hearts. I've had many experiences with them ranging from volunteer, to donor, to client served. It's hard to pick one story when they give 110% every day of their lives. I guess I'll share the story of a little darling I adopted from the shelter. I first came to volunteer at Last Hope when my own elderly kitty became sick and passed. Volunteering at Last Hope was therapeutic for me. I was able to give back to these other cats with no homes for all that my kitty did for me. After volunteering at the shelter for about a year, I became familiar with a female kitty in need of a home. Unfortunately for her, she had a heart murmur which made her a special needs kitty and harder to place. In addition, she was a survivor of the fire that occurred on New Year’s Eve 2011. After some thought, I agreed to see how she would do with my remaining male kitty. They are a happy little pair now (after the introductory period). She is a wonderful kitty and I can’t imagine life without her. Like all cats, she has her own cattitude--but she is such a love! We never replace a loved pet, but our heart always seems to grow for new ones.
