Who we are:
Dogs Hope.com is "staffed" by two volunteers. . . . Deb and Jan (staffed used loosely).
We both live in Lake County Ohio about 30 miles East of Cleveland, Ohio.
We are not a shelter or facility where the dogs are available for viewing or surrendering. . .we are two individuals with a love for the animals. We are two ladies who try to do everything within our limited powers to help any needy pet.
We are not a 501c3 Charitable Organization. Maybe some day we will be a "real" charity, able to accept your donations giving you the ability to deduct them from your taxes. But for today, we can only say "thank you" when you donate and promise that every donation has gone to a spay/neuter, vaccinations, health check-up, heartworm check, heartworm treatment, worming meds, antibiotics for sick pets and all needed veterinary care for the animals that come into our homes for rescue. Deb and I pay for all the above needed care out of our own pockets.
Through our rescue are key words. . .remember we're not a shelter. When we have space in our homes we foster in our homes. . .when we don't have space in our own homes for a foster, we depend on the angels that have opened up their homes to help us foster. (we really need foster home volunteers)
A little about us:
Deb has been helping the strays, owner surrenders and local pounds try to find good homes for needy dogs since 1977. She has always taken pro-active steps in our local area, she has fostered and placed numerous death row dogs throughout the years.
Deb has a real soft spot in her heart for the German Shepherd and that is how we came to be co-rescuers and friends. I (Jan) have always loved the German Shepherd Dog, I'd grown up with German Shepherds, raised my son with German Shepherds and now find myself a pro-active rescuer with Debbie, we've been working together since 1999.
How we work. . .
If you would like to adopt a dog, you MUST fill out the Adoption Application in full.
If you would like to surrender a dog and have it "featured" on our website www.dogshope.com, we need a description, history and very important we need pictures of your dog.
Please be patient with us, if you haven't heard back from us in a couple of days with some kind note, then chances are we haven't seen your application or received your email. Do try again. . . don't give up on us.
Thank you for visiting our site,
Jan & Deb
