Who We Are

H.O.P.E. (Help Orphaned Pets Everywhere) is a private, non-profit, tax-exempt organization committed to caring for unwanted animals and providing them with preventative medical treatment, food, and shelter until we can find them a new home. Founded in 1992, HOPE is incorporated by the State of Michigan and is supported by Gogebic County, MI and Iron County, WI appropriations, adoption fees, donations and volunteers. HOPE believes that all life should be revered and that all living creatures should be treated with kindness and respect.

HOPE Animal Shelter operates as a "No-Kill" shelter, meaning that dogs and cats in our care reside at HOPE indefinitely. Animals are not euthanized except in cases of unrelievable suffering, terminal illness or a known history of being a threat to the public.
