Adopted in July 2017. Zelda came to HOPE 10 years ago, when the shelter first opened. Our founder and director Susan was at a library, and someone was giving away a litter of kittens in the parking lot.

The kittens were adopted, but Zelda remained at the shelter all of these years...until July 2017.
Adopted in May 2017. This 22lb. senior came to HOPE 2 1/2 years ago with his brother Linus. Linus found a forever home very quickly but because Charlie has FIV he kept getting overlooked.

Harley and Zoe
Harley and Zoey were in a litter of four puppies brought to Hope at four months old by Dr. Daroowalla. She found the pups in Mexico where they had had no socialization, had not learned to play, and were the most frightened of people that I had seen in my eight years of volunteering at Hope. They have learned to PLAY! They chase each other, romp with toys, and come when called. They now take treats from good hearted strangers and lick us.

He was nursed back to health, and waited patiently to find his forever home. Two years ago someone fell in love with Buddy, but couldn't adopt him at that time because of the impact it would have on the two seniors already in the household. He was able to adopt him now!
Adopted in March 2016. At an impressive age of 19, Magpie was one of the oldest members of our senior room.

These lookalike pups hit it off right away, and she will be living a wonderful life with her new family that will include lots of RV traveling.
If you've been a friend of HOPE for awhile, you'll remember this sweet pup (but might not recognize her aged face); it's River! She was with us for a long time, and though well-loved it was hard for her to find a forever home. We were thrilled to hear from her family recently, and so grateful to hear she is still doing well. Her adopter passed away, but the family kept River and love her very much. We know that all of you who knew River will be as happy for her as we are.

Update from Checker's mom: Checkers was adopted in June 2012. Shhh.. but Checkers is the favorite in our family. We adopted Checkers at a Reid Park Dog Festival from HOPE Shelter.

Kiddle has been at HOPE for 6 1/2 years; her adoption reminds us that there truly is a home for every animal. We love our high flying, adventurous girl, and while her beautiful looks have gotten a lot of interest, she had been passed by because of her feisty personality. When Kiddle came to us, we were told she was first found as a kitten when a hawk dropped her. We thought that might explain her high flying ways, as she always found the highest perches in the shelter.
Whisper and Whimsy
