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

Programs: low cost spay/neuter low cost wellness center Free vaccine outreach programs Community Cat programs Intercounty transports Inner city transports

My son who is 19, took his dog “Titan” to Hope to get neutered. Not only was the price very low but the treatment he received was exceptional. They were kind, caring, nurturing, and informative. Let me say that Titan is a boxer/pit mix, 10 months old, and weighs about 75 pounds. After his surgery he was still a little uneasy and when the tiny girl brought him out, she was carrying him!! She thought nothing of it, she said he didn’t want to walk to she just picked him up. I would recommend Hope to anybody and everybody, a wonderful , trusting place to care for your pets. Thank you Hope!

Came in on an off call in for our kitty neuter. Didn't have enough room for us but still took us to help us stay in our apartment, 100% worth it to be with HOPE. They exceed all expectations :) will be back again for our new kitten coming. :)

I was lucky enough to be a volunteer at HOPE for a summer. I did their laundry. Since I was behind the scenes I got to see the doctors and staff as they really were not just their public faces. I have to tell you I never saw so much love and dedication any where in my life.
One of the vets stayed after her normal time just to hold and sooth a kitten that was dying. The compassion she showed still makes me cry after all this time.
I was impressed how dedicated everyone was to keep the place clean, safe and comfortable for every animal they cared for. I took my dog there to be neutered knowing she was in good hands and I didn't need to worry about her. I use the services they offer and always feel we get great treatment for a fair price.
I love HOPE for Animals.

I am on a very limited income of eight hundred dollars a month. My dogs are not just pets they are comfort /therapy dogs.( I have a letter written by my doctor so I don't pay the normal pet rent.)
H.O.P.E helps me keep my little dogs healthy by offering free vaccines. I could not afford to get them their necessary shots other wise. Thanks H.O.P.E

HOPE treated my anxious dog Artie with kindness several years ago and went the extra mile for kitty Poe who had a little accident in his crate. They took the time to tidy him and his crate and get us on our way quickly so Poe could get back home! HOPE does great work!

This is where I took 17 feral cats and 'accident' kittens to be altered. They couldn't have been more helpful and all were successes. The feral went right back where they came from after recovering and the kittens all found good homes where they were altered when old enough. I couldn't have done it without Hope for Animals' help!

I have been going to HOPE for quite a few years now and I can't say enough wonderful things about it. The staff is kind and professional. I mostly take Community cats but when I do add another furry family member I take them there as well. I have never had to take a cat back due to an issue after a surgery but it is comforting to know that they have a number for you to call and will see them free of charge if there is a medical issue after the spay or neuter. I took a pregnant cat on one occasion but I was having a battle with my conscience. The staff member let me talk and cry out my feelings and in the end I took her back home. There was no judgement on her part and I was not made to feel like I just wasted her time. I will never forget her kindness. I can't imagine taking the fur babies anywhere besides HOPE.

HOPE for Animals serves a hugely important need in the Fort Wayne area. There are so many people who cherish their pets but can't afford to have them spayed or neutered at a veterinarian. HOPE's impact on our community has been immeasurable!
