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.September 20, 2023, 7:44 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. My name is Alvin, If you are looking for a buddy to snuggle on the couch with, I am your guy! I also like to play with squeaky toys and soccer balls. I came from Arkansas back in the day, where I had a rough start and I sometimes am selective of my dog friends. After a proper introduction with new dogs though, I love to play with them.    Not to brag, but I am really smart, too! I have completed obedience 1 class and know a lot of verbal commands and I'm eager to learn more!! I like to make my people happy and smile, I'll smile back! I am very food motivated, so if you want to teach me even more it won’t be hard! I Love my food puzzle and keeping my mind and body active. I'd be the best co-pilot in the car! I am also kennel trained and have learned how to walk with a gentle leader so I don’t pull so much. And yes, I'm house trained, what do you think I am an animal?!  I do not like cats and get very nervous around children so I would do best in a home without either. Looking for a mature home that has had some dog experience. I wouldn’t mind being the only dog so I can get lots of love and attention, but I would also be happy with another doggy friend as long as we are a good fit. I’m eagerly waiting for someone to please!    Alvin's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives. Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets only, altered and current on vaccinations and preventatives.  Our adoption process includes reference and background checks, a vet check and a home visit.           Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.September 20, 2023, 7:44 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.September 20, 2023, 7:44 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.
