Umbrella of Hope 'Be Our Pet'
There once was a lady who worked at a vet clinic -- our vet clinic. Sometimes she seemed a bit gruff, but that was just her New York upbringing shining through. She had a heart of gold and LOVED dogs. She was a huge fan and supporter of our mission and had quite a little pack of 'ankle biters' (except the biting part) -- several of whom were adopted from Umbrella of Hope.
Thora eventually retired and got to spend her days with all of her beloved dogs. Eventually, some of them passed on... and last week Thora joined them suddenly and unexpectedly. We are stunned and saddened and we will miss her greatly.
Neilson (pronounced 'Nelson') -- 5 yr old, 10 lb Jack Russell and Shih Tzu Mix NEUTERED MALE. He is good with kids, cats and dogs.
Neilson is sweet and happy and active. He loves to go on walks and gets very bonded to anyone who will give him attention. He has been recently groomed and is more 'fuzzy' when grown out but he does not require grooming outside of the home.
Neilson is not on any special medications or food.

Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 5
Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles.
Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)
Adoptions to veterans of the US Armed Services are ALWAYS free to thank you for your service. Other retired public servants, please let us know what career you retired from and we can let you know if we offer any discounts for your adoption
Please send an email to the Umbrella Of Hope Animal Director with any inquiries at email@example.com. Detailed emails will be answered first.
We thank Maddie's Fund for their sponsorship, Well Pet Vet Clinic for providing most of our veterinary services, Lovely Grooming for our grooming needs, and Delta Dog Camp for training. We thank Memoirs of a Dog and Share the Joy Photography for the beautiful portraits of many of our animals and a special thanks to volunteer photographers Barbara, Kristy, Christine and Natalie.
