HOPE animal rescue is a fabulously thorough rescue organization. They take great pride in placing animals in their forever home for the final time. It's not about moving inventory. It's about finding the right home where the dog/cat knows it's their forever family and never has to fear being on the street or in a shelter again. They work tirelessly to ensure they do best by the animal. Below are a couple of my furry family members that I adopted thru HOPE.

I've had the joy working with HOPE in many capacities: volunteer, foster mama, board member and adoptee. The more you get involved, the more you want to do. This organization and it's volunteers have the largest hearts! They continue to save animals from euthanasia and they figure out the money aspects later. They provide the best care and treatment right down to dental if required. Above and beyond is there motto. You know, hands down, that if you get a HOPE animal they are loved, well taken care of and ready for their forever home. All my furry family members have come from HOPE and I'm grateful for each one of them!

I've adopted two dogs from Helping Out Pets Everyday. This rescue is very diligent about finding the right homes for their rescues. The dogs and cats receive medical care, vaccinations, spayed/neutered and microchipped. They have a group of volunteers that are very helpful in giving a potential adopter information about a dog or cat that they have interest in. I wouldn't hesitate to adopt again through this organization.

I have been a volunteer for HOPE Helping Out Pets Everyday for about seven years! I got my dog Gina back in 2003 when she was 15 months, and she is now 14 years old! I love her and so happy that when my other dog had to be put down she was available for me to adopt and take home! We are a all volunteer group of loving people who take our dogs and cats from the "kill" shelters and get them ready for their "Forever Homes"..We have fund raisers during the year to help with the upkeep of our animals as it is all through donations that we keep going! Next week on Saturday we are going to have our Annual "Walking The Runway" Fashion at the Show at the Doubletree Hotel in Claremont. These are our dogs who are up for adoption or who have been adopted and are back for the show. They are going to have the cutest outfits on to show off, along with our humans to guide them. Can't wait to see them all dressed up! Lillian Kunz

HOPE is a wonderful group of volunteers who love animals. We have a lot of dogs and cats who need a forever home who have been saved from "kill shelters"! Hope makes sure they are matched up with just the right family! You first have to fill out an application and be interviewed then they do a home visit to make sure your home and yard are just right to accomodate our furry friends. We put a lot of love into making sure our dogs and cats are ready to be adopted by just the right family! We have fund raisers to make money so we can save more from the "kill shelters" to go to loving families! My baby Gina is now 12 years old and still going strong!

We adopted our beloved 'Duke' thru HOPE. It was a great experience and they made the perfect match for us and Duke, insuring he got his forever home. Duke is now a certified therapy dog giving back. He is one of only a few dogs that is certified to go inside the veterans hospital at Loma Linda, CA. He visits wounded veterans of all kinds; men,women and veterans of every color and not matter who he visits, it is always with a wagging tail and unconditional love with comfort and compassion. Anyone looking to adopt a dog or cat really must connect with te great folks at HOPE.

Several years ago I was trying to find a home for an aging stray calico cat that was trying to survive in my apartment complex after her owner died. That's when I discovered HOPE, who took her on and found her a wonderful new INDOOR forever home. Since that time, HOPE has helped me place several other strays, and a litter of kittens. They have assisted with the spaying of two female cats, as well as two kittens. Of all the "rescues" I have dealt with, HOPE is the most honest, caring, and trustworthy. I never fear that a cat will end up in a worse situation when I turn it over to the loving arms of HOPE. Their pets are fosted in the homes of loving people. I think that HOPE should be a model for all no-kill rescues.

We found our beautiful Sydney in June of 2014 through HOPE. We fostered her for a couple of weeks and within a day I knew she belonged with us. I am so thankful for HOPE without them we would not have our little girl.

HOPE is a great all volunteer organization that saves the lives of dogs and cats. I have adopted two dogs from them in the last three years and they have been wonderful additions to our family. The volunteers at HOPE work hard to match the right pet with the right home so that that these animals are not later returned to the shelter.They save lives every day and I will continue to support them by attending their fundraisers and promoting their work whenever I can.

Last year I was looking for a dog that would be a good fit for me and my mom. She/he had to get along with cats and be an indoor dog. She/he also needed to be mellow enough for my mom to walk and work with. HOPE matched us up with the perfect dog. she has been in our home for a year and gets along great with the cats. She is sweet and loving, just the right dog for our family.

We adopted 2 cats, at separate times, from Hope. They were very thorough of their adoption process and their expectations. They don't just get pets adopted, they make sure it's a great match between the family and the animal. They care so much for the animals they want them to have forever homes. We had adopted one cat, and thought of adopting another a few months later, and there was no question, we went back to Hope.

I love HOPE. Every time I look at the beautiful, loving rescue laying at my side as I read, watch tv or work at my computer I am filled with joy and thankfulness - so thankful because if not for HOPE my spunky terrier mix with the "face of a thousand expressions" would have ended up another casualty of an overcrowded, high kill shelter. Thank you, thank you, thank you HOPE!!!

We were devastated when we lost our Aussie 6 years ago. And we were not sure we would ever want another dog. After 6 months, my husband walked into PetSmart and "found" Gracie, a 5 year old Golden mix. It was love at first sight. After some conversation, we decided to proceed with her adoption. We were impressed with the thoroughness of HOPE-the fact that they wanted to visit our home to make sure Gracie would be in a safe and loving environment. Gracie continues to be a delight.

What I love about this organization is their obvious love for what they do. The animal that is to be adopted out and their future home, is their utmost concern. They insure a great fit not only for the animal, but also for the individuals adopting. Can’t say enough wonderful things about H.O.P.E.

I adopted a 7 month old terrier mix named "Charlotte" from HOPE in July 2012. I was very impressed at their concern that she go to the best possible home, not just that she got adopted. After interviewing me and a home study, I was approved. HOPE's passion for the animals in their care is inspiring and I am so grateful to them for letting me have this sweet little girl in mine and my family's life. HOPE is doing great things for the animals and people of the city of Upland, and we are blessed by all they do. Margaret Coffman and ALL of the volunteers are amazing and passionate about what they do. Thank you HOPE for all your hard work.

We took in our dog Pepper on 2/8/11 to get spayed and get her shots updated. I just have to say that my husband and I were so pleased and satisfied with the staff, Dr. and students. They were so reassuring, attentive, and comforting. I would definitely recommend all my fellow upland friends and neighbors to HOPE. Thank you so much for your wonderful services.

I was doing my usual pet food shopping when I spotted an adorable tabbly cat in the "kitty condo". He looked right into my eyes and I knew I had to bring him home. I was so impressed with the interview process, and home visit. This organization is truly dedicated to making sure your new pet is being placed in a loving and forever home. He has blended well with my other furry kids.

I had been looking for a bigger dog for a few years. As I was leaving a dog class with my little rat terrier mix we ran into four HOPE dogs who were returning to the doggy daycare they were being foster at. One was a 3 month old lab/german shepherd mix who just laid down in front of me, licked my little dog's face and then licked me. That was the day I learned about HOPE. I was amazed by their committment to animals, the interview process and the home checks they did in order for anyone to adopt one of their animals. The people at HOPE were helpful and supportive and very nice. Because of them I have a petite 93 pound dog who loves everyone and now works with abused children. I am grateful to HOPE for helping me have an amazing dog that brings daily joy to my life and his little sister.

I thank them for all there good work.

We have had numerous stray cats come to us starving. My husband and I took in two, but when the third one came we couldn't keep anymore as we have two inside cats already. HOPE took in the third stray and is attempting to get her a new home. HOPE also helped us with shots and the spay and neutering of the strays. When no one else in the I.E. would help Upland residents HOPE came through.

They are the most devoted, caring group of volunteers. Any financial help given to them goes to see these rejected animals live a full healthy life.

Please help H.O.P.E.

My name is Camilla, but my people friends call me Cami. I am about 4 years old and came to the animal shelter as a puppy with my mother. She was adopted but it took a long time for me to find my forever family. I would like to thank the people at HOPE for taking care of me until that day finally came!
Hi. I am Cami's new mom. We adopted Cami through the HOPE organization about 3 months ago. We were very impressed with the through adoption process and their concern that Cami was going to a suitable home. She is such a sweet, loving little dog! We are enjoying every day with her & she is a perfect fit for the two of us. Keep up the good work HOPE!

Our family is complete since we adopted our adorable Cocker Spaniel puppies from H.O.P.E. It was a chance encounter that we met H.O.P.E. and one of the puppies (the other puppy was being cared for after having cherry eye surgery) at an adoption on a Saturday afternoon. A few days later we began the adoption process and were impressed with the thoroughness of the questions on the application. This was followed by an interview and then ultimately an in-home visit where the puppies had an opportunity to meet our loving lab. Throughout the process we were impressed with the thoroughness H.O.P.E. takes to ensure the puppies would be safe and secure in a loving forever home. We are so very happy to have stopped by the adoption that Saturday afternoon, the puppies are an integral part of our family. We highly recommend H.O.P.E.
