Can you help with the cost or foster? Permanent or Long-Term Fosters Pictures of animals are down below

Some animals are not going to be adopted, for any number of reasons

  • Veternarian recommends the animal not change homes again
  • Animal has chronic medical conditions which make it hard (special needs)
  • Animal has mental, physical, emotional issues which need long-term treatment before it can be put up for adoption
  • Advanced medical conditions (heart failure, kidney failure etc) with a short life expectancy

Once HOPE takes in an animal, it is cared for for life. So HOPE must pay for the care of that animal which includes:

  • Monthly preventives for flea/tick and heartworms
  • Medications for medical conditions and maintenance
  • Special food, treats (grainfree, protein allergies, specialized diets etc)

Rescue Impact due to permanent or long-term foster animals

  • These animals take up space in our foster network, we always need more foster slots
  • Costs for these animals has a constant affect on our budget, we have to manage costs

Your donation will allow us to cover these costs while not affecting the ability to help new animals that need to come into rescue.

We can't keep up with all the latest but here is a snapshot of the permanent or long-term fosters we have as of the creation of this webpage. (No, we are not kidding, all these animals right now are considered permanent or long-term fosters - you can see how this might add up over several years caring for an animal)
