Mission: Formed by the desire to save lives, and as advocates for all canine and feline animals, guided in the spirit of being the caretakers of God?s creatures, stewards to young people through example and leadership, entrusted with educating the public on spaying and neutering, empowered through volunteer dedication, and committed in our mission to make a difference.
Target demographics: rescue at risk dogs and cats from high kill shelters.
Direct beneficiaries per year: hundreds of dogs and cats through our spaying and neutering program with Western University's VACS program and by rescuing dogs and cats that were going to be euthanized at high kill shelters. Since 2003 we have placed over 1000 dogs and cats in qualified homes.
Geographic areas served: Southern CA—Inland Empire
Programs: spaying and neutering. We have provided spay/neuter opportunities for dogs and cats of pet owners in the community since 2004.
HOPE is a wonderful group of very dedicated people who go the extra mile trying to save the lives of abandoned animals. Their dedication amazes me...so many of the volunteers spend every weekend showcasing the adoptable pets at different Petsmart locations. They also pull animals out of the shelter and get them adopted. I am very lucky to have them saving the lives of the pets in my area.
I have known H.O.P.E. for about 6 years and have been impressed by their dedication and even more importantly, their organization. Every member has a "job" and is dedicated to it, whether it is volunteering on their weekend day at Petsmart or Petco, bringing dogs and cats to an event, or taking care of pets at the shelter. I have always been impressed by how organized they are. Everyone knows what events are happening and every event is always staffed by dedicated members.
