My story



DOB 8/8/21

Meow! Meow, everyone! I'm Rockefeller, but you can call me Rocky, and I’m a sweet, friendly, very sociable, handsomely-marked tuxedo fella who thinks cuddle time is one of life’s highest priorities. I'm a happy-go-lucky guy who likes to sit in laps to give as well as to soak-up Foster Meowmy’s love. When she comes into my room, I immediately run to her and jump up in her lap.

That’s just like the day she rescued me. She had stopped to get a drink at a drive-through, and she glanced out the window to see an orphaned tuxedo kitten (me) coming across the parking lot. She got out of the car and got down on her knees, and I ran to her as fast as I could. She scooped me up, got back in the car with me in her lap, and off we went to my new home to join her other foster kitties.

Don't get me wrong because I’m not always a couch/ lap potato. No sirree! I also adore playing, especially when Foster Meowmy zig-zags the laser pointer. I'm still a teenage kid, so I get the zoomies from time to time. That’s when Foster Meowmy says, "Rocky, you’re such a character!” Luckily I have lots of cat buddies as well as hoomans to give me the playtime and social interaction that I crave.

Although I'm content in my foster home, I realize that it's best for me to have a forever home of my own. I hope that you'll arrange to meet me, and when you do, I promise to leave tiny paw prints all over your heart.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Adopting an animal is a very serious decision and we want to be sure that our potential adoptive families have thought about the impact of this decision carefully. To adopt an animal through HOPE, we request that you complete an Adoption Application, a copy of which is available online for cats at or for dogs at You may fill it out online or print a copy of the application and complete it prior to arriving at an adoption session. This will expedite the adoption process and will also assist our adoption counselors in matching you to a suitable pet.

We at HOPE make every effort to match our foster pets to appropriate homes. If you feel that we are too intrusive, please understand that it is because we care about their welfare.

All animals are neutered or spayed and have received age appropriate shots prior to being adopted. We ask that you provide a $100 donation for cats and a donation of $150 for dogs when you adopt your new family member from us. This donation helps us in defraying the costs of these and other medical needs of our animals.

Mobile adoption sessions are held on the weekends. All adoption sessions run from 12:00 - 4:00 pm at a variety of locations and days as noted on our website For more information, please contact us at

More about this rescue

Our mission is to end the homelessness of cats and dogs through foster to adoption, feral cat Trap-Neuter-Return, and education.

HOMELESS & ORPHANED PETS ENDEAVOR (HOPE) is an all-foster, no kill adoption group based in the Houston area.

HOPE covers the cost of general medical expenses for the animals in the program, such as altering, routine vaccinations and treatment for parasites. Our foster families are asked to provide food, shelter and love to the animals for which they care. They receive no payment for the services that they provide. Without them, and the other volunteers who so selflessly do what is necessary to keep HOPE afloat, it would not be possible to run this nonprofit corporation.

One aim of HOPE is to develop a network of area rescue and humane organizations which will facilitate the rescue and placement of a variety of animals. The goal is to never have to turn away an animal in need. By forming a coalition of humane and rescue groups in the Houston area, we could potentially place all animals who need a temporary home until they are placed into a permanent one.
