Who We Are

LAST HOPE, INC. is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization incorporated in 1982, that is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of death-due pound rescued animals in our small adoption centers; the homes of volunteers or at participating veterinarians. We raise money for our rescue efforts through fundraisers such as flea markets, auctions, luncheons, dinners, raffles and mailings.

We are always in need of volunteers to help with adoptions, walk dogs, clean, do light repair work and foster/socialize cats, kittens and dogs. Please contact our office and leave your name and number and days you may be available or visit our website to download a volunteer application.
