Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Velvet. I'm about 6 years old and I am a coon hound. I LLLLOOOVVVEE car rides! I am really smart and am kind of obsessed with what’s on the other side… the other side of a door, the other side of the gate, the other side of the wall.. I don't want to miss anything, ya know. . Just like smart people, smart dogs get bored if they don't have something to work on. Did I mention I LOVE car rides? It doesn’t matter how long the ride is. I can also walk nicely on a leash and love to go on walks. Just bring out the leash and I will get very excited! I am up to date on all my vaccinations and have been spayed. I don’t mind other dogs, but I am not a fan of cats. I have kind of a sensitive tummy so I eat only one kind of dog food. I would love to find a home with people who want to teach me things and be my best friends. Please come and meet me and find out why my name is Velvet. Please contact adoptions@adopthope.org for more information about Velvet. Indoor homes only. Adoption fee is $250. All of our pets need to be kept as indoor pets and we do require a home visit as part of the adoption process. Landlord (if applicable), vet and personal references will be called. The adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, microchip and vaccinations.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 300.00. Hi, my name is Shira; named after an ancient goddess of Egypt. I have come all the way from Egypt to find my forever home in Iowa. I love to play with my humans! I have lots of energy and would love a big yard to run in with a fence. I can be very goofy when I am in my playful mood. Since I am young I do jump up and be nippy when I am excited. I get along with other dogs, sometimes I just need a slow interaction and time-outs in my kennel if I get too rambunctious. My foster home has cats and sometimes I get the urge to run after one. I also like to check out their food when I can be sneaky. I like kids, it might not be good if I am around toddlers because I can get pretty excited and forget I am not supposed to play with them. I am very hesitant with new people in and out of my home. Slow and numerous interactions need to occur before I am comfortable. The most important thing, I need a tall fence otherwise I try to climb and get over the fence.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 250.00. This gorgeous girl is Willa! She's a happy little girl looking for a family to give her lots of love and time to play. She had major surgery on her legs and was confined to a crate during her long recovery but she is all healed and ready to find a family to call her own! She isn't a big fan of going for walks yet since she's still getting used to walking, but she loves to frolic around a fenced yard. Her affinity for toys would make her best suited to a home all by herself since she's very protective of them, but could thrive with a family savvy in resource guarding. When toys aren't involved, she loves wrestling with her doggy pals at Cedar Run Boarding! Willa is also crate trained. Willa tends to think cats as fun toys so a home without felines would be her ideal. She is good with kids but with her past medical history we think kids older than 10 would be best for Willa. She takes a daily joint supplement but it’s more like a treat than medicine. If you are interested in meeting Willa, please visit our website at www.adopthope.org and complete an adoption application for consideration. Willa's adoption fee is $250 and includes spay, rabies vaccination, distemper, bordetalla, and heartworm test. Microchip is also included. Last Hope animals are to be kept indoors only and on monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventative. We check references, including veterinary.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Cattle Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 250. Hi, I'm Kelby! I came to Last Hope with several other dogs and lived outside before I came here, but I found that living inside is so much nicer and I'm so smart that I learned right away what house manners are! I absolutely adore my foster mom and love to snuggle up with her on the couch and I get so excited when she comes home. It would be awesome if the people in my new family are home enough that I can bond with them sooner. I do great when I'm home alone-I'm a good girl!-but it will take me a long time to get adjusted if you're gone a lot. I could be the only dog or if properly introduced, I could be around male dogs; I live with a fun dog who's a little bit bigger than me and though it took me a little while to adjust, I like him now. I do okay with older cats who don't try to run away from me, but if they run, I will chase them (sorry, the humans said something about me having some herding breed in me; I don't know what that means). Since I am a little shy, I would prefer that kids in my forever home be at least ten years old and are able to respect my need for space. I can't wait for my new family to find me! If you are interested in learning more about Kelby, please visit our website at www.adopthope.org. and complete an adoption application for consideration. Kelby's adoption fee is $250 and includes her spay, microchip and all current vaccinations. We require all of our dogs to be indoor dogs only and to remain on year round heartworm preventative. Last Hope's adoption process includes reference checks, including vet and landlord if applicable, and a home visit.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $250. Ollie is a very special dog with a very sad background in search of a loving forever family. He was hit by a truck and left for dead on the side of the road, his spine was fractured from the blow. Through the kindness of strangers, Ollie was rescued and received the medical attention he so desperately needed. His spine has healed, although he walks with a limp, he is learning to run and play and just be a happy dog again! Ollie is medically recovered and in need of a loving home that can offer him no stairs - those are still tricky! Ollie is also best suited for a home with older children as he can experience some sensitivity on his underside and wouldn't want to scare a small child if he felt a little pain. UPDATE: Ollie is in foster care and loves to run and play. His foster home has put him on some very inexpensive over the counter arthritis supplement for humans. He is responding remarkably. He will always have a little limp, which is pronounced when he is tired. He has taken it on himself to practice the three steps in the back yard to get a better vantage point to play, so a few steps with lots of patience would work out. He travels fine, but, does not like being picked up so a ramp would help him. He likes kids and everyone, and trips to Petco are great fun. He is very affectionate and gives kisses and head buts for attention. He is a little protective of his food and gets fed in his crate. He insists on 2 walks a day, just a few blocks, but, man does he love those walks. Bunnies beware here comes Ollie. Ollie's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, micro chip and current vaccinations. If you are interested in learning more about Ollie, please complete an adoption application at www.adopthope.org for consideration. Our adoption process includes checking personal and vet references, a background check and home visit.

I just love people and all the attention I can get! I love to follow my foster mom around the house. I love to play but when you settle in on the couch you should probably make room for me too! I'm working on all my commands I know "sit" "come" "go to your bed" and "lay down". I love to go for car rides and walks. When I'm outside I have to be on a tie-out or leash since I like to climb fences. I like to have all the attention and would prefer to be your only pup in the house. My foster mom has a dog I have been getting along with great...but I can be picky about who I'm friends with. I would love to meet you to see if I am the perfect addition for your family!!

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Harrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $250.00. Hi, I’m Duke! I am a charming, happy, Cattle Dog mix, about 2 yrs old. I love to go for walks or runs (and I am really good at it!). I also love car rides, stuffed animals, and playing in a fenced-in backyard. I am completely house trained, crate trained , and am very intelligent. I know what sit, lay down , and stay mean, but I could use some more training to work on those commands and anything else you want to teach me. I love to run and play; I have a whole lot of energy, but I also love to cuddle, give kisses and be loved by my human companion . Basically, I just like to be doing what my people are. I am very cautious of new people. I really prefer to come check you out first, and I really rather you don’t pet me until I know you will treat me with kindness. I may have to meet you a couple times before I know I can trust you . I can’t tell my friends at Last Hope what happened to me before I came to stay with them, but all they know is that it takes me a while to trust people. Because of this, I should not be in a home with young kids or teens. My dream home would be with an adult family who is familiar with my kind of challenges. I would love 1 other playful dog around my size or bigger to play with (I can play a little rough so they need to be tough like me) and a family who is very patient with me while I adjust to new people in my life. I am a very loyal companion and I just want to please my humans! Once I know I can trust you, I just want to be around you and will be your shadow as you go through your day. I have also had my DNA tested! I am officially an Australian Cattle Dog / Harrier mix! I can’t wait to find my forever home. All of our pets need to be kept as indoor pets and we do require a home visit as part of the adoption process. Landlord (if applicable), vet and personal references will be called. The adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, microchip and vaccinations.
