Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Hi, my name is Kaia, and I came all the way from California.  While the west coast has all the sunshine,  I wanted to see how the mid-west farmers daughters lived.  All the dog volunteers at Last Hope say I am the sweetest little girl, I love to snuggle, and give tons of kisses.  I love to ride in the car and go for walks and I am super good at both! I am a very strong girl and need someone equally as strong.  I am a princess and love all the attention so I will need to be the only pet in the house.  I also need a home that has a privacy fence in case the neighbors have pets.  So if you always wished they all could be  California girls and wanted one of your own, then I am your girl.....  Kaia’s adoption fee is $250 and includes her spay, micro chip and current vaccinations. Last Hope requires that all of our animals be kept on year round heart worm preventative and as indoor dogs only. Our adoption process includes a background check, personal and vet reference checks as well as a home visit. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 26, 2024, 12:14 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Looking for a dog with a winning personality? Luckily you've found Oscar! He's a very social dog who would do best in a home where he can spend quality time with his people and at least one other accepting medium - large dog. Oscar enjoys a short daily walk and lots of plush and chew toys. He is a bit of a juggernaut who doesn't know it, and he greets everyone he meets with love and a wagging tail. He's fully house trained and nondestructive when home with his foster's other dogs unkenneled. People in the home should be teens and older due to his slightly oblivious nature and high food drive. Oscar does have some mild allergies, he' well managed with diet and seasonal allergy medication but may occasionally have some flare ups. Oscar's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives plus a free basic obedience class at Cedar Run Company in Hiawatha. Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets only, be altered and current on vaccinations and preventatives. We look for adopters with current and/or former pets to have a demonstrated history of this. Our adoption process includes reference and background checks, a vet history check and a home visit. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 26, 2024, 12:14 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Friendly and outgoing lady Daisy B is searching for a forever home, her dream home would have a woman and children in the family as this seems to be what she gravitates most towards when we introduce her to new people! We think Daisy is a "momma dog" at heart!  We've learned that Daisy is an escape artist, she can jump a shorter fence so would be best suited to a home with a secure fence. We don't think she intends to run away, we think she just wants to be wherever you are! She can also be dog selective, so might be best suited as the only dog in the home. She has so much love to share with her people, and it's clear she will fill your home with love and laughter.  Don't pass this goofy girl up! She loves to go for walks, and although she can be strong on the leash at first she does settle in quickly.   Daisy's adoption fee is $250 and includes her spy, microchip, current vaccinations/preventatives and free basic obedience course at Cedar Run Company in Hiawatha. Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets only, be altered and current on vaccinations and preventatives. We look for potential adopters who have current/former pets to have a demonstrated history of this. Our adoption process includes reference and background checks, a vet history check and a home visit. Please submit an application for consideration through our website, www.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Hi, my name is Jupiter and I can’t wait to meet you! I love everyone that comes into my home and I will make sure they know it with lots of kisses and snuggles. My favorite place to be is pressed up against someone’s leg so they don’t forget how much I love them. I am loyal to the core. The only thing I love more than my human friends is food. I love snacks and treats. I am a very smart girl and learn new commands very quickly if you offer me a treat for it. I take medicine every day which makes me happy because that means I get a piece of cheese or some yummy peanut butter to hide it in. De-lish!  Since I am a brilliant girl, I love brain puzzles that keep me from getting bored. Sometimes when I am bored I chew on things that aren’t mine, but I’m willing to learn not to. I like squishy rubber toys better than hard ones. I don’t like kennels but if you let me sleep in bed with you, you won’t hear an objection from me. I love people, but dogs make me nervous.  I would do best if I were your only furry bestie. Loud noises also frighten me like big trucks. I am very skilled at walking on a leash when given clear guidance. I had surgery on my back leg that left me with pins and a plate but you would never tell. My legs are nice and strong now and I love stretching them on daily walks. I am very polite and will let you wipe my feet off before coming inside our home if you ask for my “paw.” (I also know ‘sit,’ ‘lay down,’ ‘wait,’ and ‘off.’ Plus I’m excited to learn more if you bring the treat bag.)  Once I get inside I’m quite the couch potato, especially if you will sit with me. As I said, cuddling is my favorite.  I am quite the slobbery gal but that’s part of my charm! Just thinking about my dinner makes my mouth water, no chicken-based dog food please, it makes me itchy.  I know my natural brindle coat is beautiful but I am a fashionista that never says no to being dressed up. I love going on car rides so submit an application and let’s get cruising together on our lifelong adventure.  Jupiter’s adoption fee is $250 and includes her spay, microchip, current vaccinations and preventives plus a free basic obedience course at Cedar Run Company in Hiawatha. Jupiter has TPLO surgery in March 2022 to repair and stabilize a torn ACL. Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets, be altered and current on vaccinations and preventives for consideration.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.DJ is such a happy dude! He had a tough start, he was brought into rescue heartworm positive so has just recently finished treatment to get him healthy. That treatment includes 12 weeks of strict kennel rest so this young guy is all ready to get out and stretch his legs and have some fun as your new adventure buddy! DJ rides great in a car, he makes friends with every single person he meets and while he has good young dog energy, he also calms down very quickly when it’s time to relax! DJ can be dog selective so might be best suited as the only animal in your home, he is not a match with cats. DJ is very people friendly and we think he’s be great with kids, he’s best paired with elementary aged or older. With DJ’s history of having heartworm as a young dog, it’s important that his owner understand the importance of providing year round heartworm preventatives and routine vet care!    DJ’s adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives plus a free basic obedience course at Cedar Run Company in Hiawatha. Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets only and be kept current on vaccinations and preventatives.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.HBC 4/11/23 - partially paralyzedMario joined Last Hope after he was hit by a car in the Davenport, Iowa area in early April 2023. Although Mario is partially paralyzed with very limited use of his back legs and hind end in general, he is a healthy and happy dog with lots of zest for life - he just needs to match himself with the right humans to help him on his journey! He is changing and improving every day, so the future is bright for him! Mario has blossomed in our care, we have learned lots about him including his love for sunbathing and being outside in general! He loves people of all ages, is friendly and curious with all animals, he enjoys a good bubble bath where he can soak his feet and then will gladly roll around on a shag carpet all day long.  Mario is also quite the foodie, and enjoys snacks such as watermelon, sardines and ice cubes!  Mario truly enjoys being where his family is, he does not want to be left behind or miss out on any of the action. He would not be an ideal match for someone that is gone long hours every day.  He is also not a fan of storms or fireworks, and does take calming medication for anticipated loud events like this.  Mario will be happy to be crated when he is left alone, and he does currently wear a diaper or belly band for elimination. Mario is an ideal candidate for a foster to adopt scenario, this will allow the rescue to continue to support Mario's new family as he settles in and they become familiar with his care.  Mario has had diagnostics and imaging,he is currently receiving ongoing chiropractic and acupuncture care with Dr Christine Woodford in the Cedar Rapids, IA area and takes anti-inflammatory pain medication daily. Mario will require care that includes lifting him for grooming/bathing (he is approx. 50 pounds), monitoring his skin for lesions/abrasions and cleaning/providing wound care as needed (this could be on his belly or underside from urine or moisture, or on his legs, feet and tail from dragging his hind end as he tries to walk.  Mario is starting to regain some feeling and muscle tone, he is not yet able to fully empty his bladder without assistance.  He can be manually expressed 3-4 times a day, and a more thorough expression can be done every other day to fully empty his bladder (this is something that is very easy to do and that we can easily train a person on!) Mario is a good candidate for a wheelchair or cart, this is something that Last Hope will provide for him! Mario's adoption fee is $250 and includes his current vaccinations, preventatives and a neuter surgery (this has not been performed yet, but will be scheduled and covered by Last Hope).  Mario is seeking an indoor only home, and an owner who has a history of having kept current/former pets altered, current on vaccinations and preventatives as indoor pets only.  Mario is seeking a home with 1 hour of Cedar Rapids, or with a family that is willing to transport him to this area for routine veterinary care as requested.   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 26, 2024, 12:14 pm
