Umbrella of Hope 'Be Our Pet'



12 yr old, 10 lb Toy Poodle NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION

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.

 

Finnigan -- 12 yr old, 10 lb Toy Poodle NEUTERED MALE. He is great with other dogs, kids and cats. He is gentle and unassuming but he still plays like he is younger. He loves to go for walks, snuggle and will do ANYTHING to get petted. He is excellent at the groomer. He navigates around quite well after the first day in a new place.

Finn takes a thyroid pill twice daily (est cost $40/year) and needs to eat a low protein food to keep his kidneys healthy (age related changes that were caught early and should not affect his lifespan if kept on proper food).

We will provide the medication for life if needed. He can either eat a prescription kidney food which we can provide or he can eat a low-protein food OTC like FirstMate Pet Foods Senior/Weight Management Variety which is available at Pet Food Express.

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 beourpet@gmail.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.  Please support these businesses for supporting rescue!

About Umbrella of Hope

About Our Rescue Group...

Umbrella of Hope exists to rescue, rehibilitate, and rehome animals from shelter situations with a focus on East Contra Costa County, California. Our goal is to reduce the euthanasia of adoptable animals through increased adoptions of those animals already born. Help increase public safety by reducing the number of strays and feral animals through population control who might carry disease or pose other dangers to the community. Provide resources to pet owners to enable them to be responsible forever guardians of their companion animals. To increase public awareness of homeless pets, encourage spay and neuter of companion animals, and promote adoption for the acquisition of family pets.
