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

H.O.P.E. is an amazing place to work, and I am grateful to be a part of their dedicated team! The staff are animal-lovers to their core, and they strive to ensure that every single customer receives the attention they deserve. They are so thankful to be able to offer low prices so that pet owners can get the care they need for their pets.

Hope for Animals in Fort Wayne is an outstanding charitable non profit. They have helped to reduce the number of animals in our local shelters by offering low cost spay/neuter and community cat programs. They also have a great low cost wellness clinic for annual vaccinations. Hope does wonderful work for our town and our animals.

H.O.P.E. for Animals provides wonderful services for the community to help people who can't afford the cost of typical vet care. Their new wellness clinic is a godsend for low income people, as well. Now, because of their efforts, they are helping to cut down on the over population of animals, including feral cats with their spay and neuter services. They are very good stewards of their funds. I am a donor and have been since 2012. I will continue to support them as much as I can. Without them, many more unwanted animals would come in to this world and face starvation, disease, neglect, abuse and death. Because of them, many pet owners can afford to get medical treatment for their pets they could not otherwise afford. HIGH FIVE TO ALL H.O.P.E. STAFF!!!

HOPE has been a life saver for us. They provide a transport to our County so we can send pets down to be fixed. Without them there would be no low cost Spay/Neuter in Lagrange County. Staff is always so helpful too.

I had my mastiff neutered there. He loved everyone! The doctor's and tech's are super nice and very helpful. I even brought my older dog who was already neutered for vaccines and a heartworm test in the Wellness clinic - he was very comfortable with the staff. The doctor was so gentle with him. I've enjoyed my experiences with them and will definitely be back!

I took two feral kitties to HOPE to be neutered and was very happy with their professional treatment of the animals! This place is a wonderful place for our pets and for the strays. I still have more feral stray cats that I plan to take there to be neutered - and am sure they will do a fabulous job once again. Can't say enough good about this place, the cleanliness - the caring staff and such reasonable costs.

I have had several cats in to be spayed, mine,some strays, and 2 barn cats where I worked at the time. Great prices and deals and professional! I recommend them to everyone I can. One little gal I took in had a cold and I was to have her seen at the clinic to get her healthy enough for surgery. Always feel the love they have for their 4 legged clients in how they treat them and their human parents! Love H.O.P.E.!
