Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals, Veterinary Services

Mission: To end the euthanasia of healthy adoptable pets through education, low cost spay/neuter & wellness services and to support rescue and adoption.

Results: As of August 31st, 2013 over 25,000 pets had been spayed or neutered at a very low cost to owners and shelters. A conservative estimate would be that over 60,000 potentially homeless pets will not be born into short, difficult lives. The intake and euthanasia rates have both declined and will continue to do so, allowing shelters and rescues more space and resources to help those animals in their care.

Target demographics: pet owners in financial distress

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 8,000 pet owners get their animals the care they needed while preventing over 17,000 potentially homeless pets from being born. Last year we helped reduce euthanasia in our area by over 1,000 pets.

Geographic areas served: Northeast Indiana

We unexpectedly had a stray adopt us. He wasn't claimed by anyone, and he was living under our house. We already have 3 cats, but we couldn't just leave him outside. He was less than a year old, but old enough to be neutered. Unfortunately we didn't have the money. We were able to get him neutered for a lower price through H.O.P.E for Animals, which not only helped him, but helped our other cats to accept him. We have a happy, healthy family of cats now! H.O.P.E. for animals made that possible!

They loaned me a live trap, so I could catch a kitten I had been feeding at work. It worked and he is the most loving of the 3 cats I have. They also give my older two their shots through the Wellness Clinic! They are patient with the animals and treat them with love.

HOPE for animals has truly changed our community for the better. Providing low cost spay and neuter services plus low cost vaccines has made it possible for EVERY family to have the opportunity to properly care for their fur babies without having the stress of breaking the bank. I love HOPE and everything that they do!! ❤️❤️❤️

I found 2stray kittens a couple years ago. It would have cost me several hundred dollars per cat for shots, tests & surgery. Thanks to H.O.P.E.'s reduced fees, I was able to provide a home for both. Their staff is very caring & friendly.

I have had all of my furbabies fixed through hope for animals, even my pitbull. When I brought him in they could see he was just a big baby and they treated all my babies with pure kindness and love.

Hope for Animals is one of the greatest organizations in Fort Wayne. All of our barn kitties visit this facility. We are so lucky to have them.

After my German Shepard got fixed, I got a call from hope for animals. The first words out of their mouth was, "your girls are okay," they just wanted me to know their surgery went well. How considerate that they knew I would be worried.

We brought our newly rescued pup in to be spayed. The staff was very interested in her breed. We were thinking husky but small dog. They staff just fell in love with Lolly so when they had her for surgery they spent some time researching her breed. When we picked her up they shared with us they thought she was a Norwegian Elkhound and Whippet. Lolly never grew into a big husky, she's only 18lbs but I think they got it right. They take great care of Boo and Lolly and we love that we have this resource in our area.

I was recently given 2 puppies after my rescue companion of 15 years passed away from Cancer. I was worried about how I will care for them properly since I am retired & on a fixed income. I was able to get all the shots for both of them for about $120. I made an appointment to have them spayed & neutered this month for about $130 total. If I can’t afford to pay it immediately, I can put it on Care Credit for deferred payments. Everyone was so kind & professional. They answered all my questions, & even helped me get them back in the car, which was difficult since I use a cane. I appreciate all they did, & will do for me, and for the whole community! I highly recommend them to everyone. Thanks from Marley & Tess, too!

We love hope for animals! Very professional and friendly staff and a very clean environment. We went to them for our puppy's shots and to get her spayed. We've also visited the wellness center a few times for deworming medicine and to get her nails clipped. We've been recommending them to everyone we know who gets a dog!

I love this place. They're making great strides in combatting overpopulation. I sponsored 4 spays for my shelter fosters for just $20 each one month (which saved one from a very silent pyometra) but don't let the low costs fool you. Their services and facility are top notch because of grants and donations and the people who work there are informative, friendly and caring. A+.
