Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Nala really wants to make sure you have room in your bed and on your couch as napping is her #1 priority!  Nala likes to sleep in and has no desire to get up early in the mornings.  Once she decides to get up for her day, she does love a game of fetch, chewing on some toys, and making sure she gets fed.  Nala weighs 100 lbs and a DNA test shows she is 100% American Bulldog.  She does have some seasonal allergies that can flare up, but being fed high quality food has helped keep her mostly itch-free.  Nala does well with other easy-going dogs, as she can get bossy if other dogs are getting too excited or in her face.  She also gets along fine with the senior cat in her foster home.  A 5-6 foot privacy fence would be best for Nala, although other options may be considered. When you first meet Nala, she will be sure to let you know she is excited to meet you!! Nala's adoption fee is $250 and includes her spay, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives PLUS a basic obedience course at Cedar Run Company in Hiawatha.  Last Hope requires that all applicants who have had pets have a demonstrated history of having kept them altered, current on vaccinations/preventatives and kept as indoor pets only.  Please submit an adoption application for consideration if you would like to meet Nala!Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.March 1, 2024, 7:44 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Porkchop!! This handsome dude is around 4 years old, and 60 pounds of personality! Porkchop is seeking a super stable home, with an experienced dog owner.  He can be your couch potato partner if you bribe him with belly rubs, or your backyard companion helping to rid the yard of birds and squirrels (and tennis balls, too!).  Porkchop is super food motivated, so it was easy to train him to sit and we know he'll do great learning lots of other new commands.  He loves to be with his person, and can be somewhat standoffish with new people or situations.  Porkchop will need to be your only dog in the home, or possibly paired with a very docile and confident larger female dog.  Pushy or over friendly dogs don't mesh well with his personality.  No kids or cats for Porkchop, please! Porkchop can be  a vocal dog, he will talk and grumble at you to let you know what he's thinking - we think it’s pretty cute!  Porkchop's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip and current vaccinations and preventatives PLUS a free basic obedience course at Cedar Run Company in Hiawatha.  Last Hope requires that potential adopters current animals be altered, current on vaccinations and preventatives and be kept as indoor pets only.  Our adoption process includes reference and background checks, a vet check and a home visit.  Please submit an adoption application for consideration through our website.  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.March 1, 2024, 7:45 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Hoagie!! We just love this smushy faced boy, he needs an owner who will help him to grow his confidence in the world; introduce him to new experiences and provide slow social introductions to other dogs and people.  We don't know Hoagie's full background, but it's clear he was badly injured before joining Last Hope.  His back end is weak, and x-rays have shown old injuries that have since fused.  Hoagie does take prescription medicine for this and will need to continue on this long-term for pain/joint management. Hoagie might be a fit with another young, playful dog around his size or he would love to be your #1 guy.  He is not a fit with small dogs and is also not a fit with children under 16. He doesn't mind cats, as long as they have their own dedicated space should they want a break from him. Hoagie will love playing in your fenced in back yard, and then cuddling on the couch...but be warned, he's a snorer! Hoagie can be very wary of men, so he needs a patient and kind owner who is prepared for introducing him slowly to new people.    Hoagie's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives plus a FREE basic obedience course at Cedar Run Pet Boarding in Hiawatha.  Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets only, be altered and current on vaccinations and preventatives. Our adoption process includes reference and background checks, a vet check and a home visit as well as multiple meet and greets for dogs.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Cooper! This handsome guy came to us via the Iowa County Sheriff's Office found as a stray near North English. Cooper has quite the personality - he loves attention and will whine when the attention fades. He enjoys his time outside & on his walks. The shelter envioronment can be quite overwhelming for any dog as there are many new caretakers, smells, other dogs, etc. Cooper has adjusted fairly well and seems to be a happy-go-lucky boy. Since he has only been under our care for a short while, he has not been directly introduced to other dogs yet. He does have a loud bark/screech when other dogs have approached his space or while seeing other dogs outside while on his walks. A proper introduction of any current dogs in the home with Cooper would be important for any future adoption interest. Cooper is estimated to be around five years old. He was previously neutered before his arrival. He has been brought up-to-date on his vaccinations, tested negative for Heartworm, has been started on monthly flea/tick & heartworm preventatives - with this being said, Cooper is ready to begin his search for his forever home!If you are interested in meeting Cooper, please complete an online adoption application as the first step of the meet & greet process. The adoption application can be found on our website at www.wesavepets.com. Once the application has been submitted, a Safe Haven volunteer will be in contact to discuss the next steps. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.March 3, 2024, 8:40 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Atlas is ready to be the king of your world! This handsome bridle boy is happiest when he's running and playing fetch.  Atlas is well trained and knows how to sit, shake, stay, lay down, wait, come, leave it and get up. Atlas is also muzzle trained, he prefers to wear this when meeting strangers or doing scary things like visiting the vet's office.  Atlas would thrive in an active home with adults only who are dog savvy and maintain a relatively quiet home life. We don't know all of his background, but we know that strangers in the home are scary to Atlas and he isn't sure if he's supposed to protect you from them or not!  Atlas loves to play, so another playful dog in the home would make for a perfect match! Atlas is kennel and potty trained, and also loves to give kisses. A 4-6 foot high fenced in yard would be a dream come true for ol' Atlas, here he could run and play to his hearts content and maybe learn some more impressive commands with a little help from his new family. If you are interested in learning more about Atlas please complete an adoption application for consideration at www.AdoptHope.org.  The adoption fee for Atlas is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives as well as a FREE obedience class through Cedar Run in Hiawatha.  Our adoption process includes reference and background checks, a vet check and home visit.  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.March 1, 2024, 7:45 pm
