Animal Abuses in Farmington

You probably have read or seen on TV news during the past few days that an animal rescue organization in Farmington was discovered to have 60 dead cats in their home and 40 living in deplorable conditions along with 5 dogs.  An additional 50 cats belonging to this organization were found in rooms at an exercise gym operated by the same people. Even more were found in a business building that they were renovating to house the rescue and adoption center in Farmington.  This organization has been named as Minnesota Animal Rescue. 

This is to inform you that Last Hope animal rescue of Farmington does not and never has had have any relationship with that organization or any of the people working in it.  We have operated for over 30 years and take great pride in maintaining a true animal rescue organization dedicated to the welfare of any and all cats and dogs that we help.  Our reputation as such is the foundation that supports the Last Hope animal rescue. 

We at Last Hope are heartbroken when we think about the pain and suffering that all of these helpless animals went through before their death and for those that were living when rescued by the Animal Humane Society. We are offering to give any help that we can to the rescued animals including paying for any necessary veterinary care.

Thanks for being an important part of Last Hope animal rescue.

Cats & Dogs

(Several cats are kept in this store that can be seen & adopted during normal store hours.)


Last Hope Dog Division is looking for some Large Breed foster homes for dogs 1-4 yrs old that are 40-70 lbs. We provide food, kennels and leash and collars and even some toys!  You provide the love! You will be working on basic house manners and walking on a leash.

Must be at least 18 with all members of family okay with it! Must be able to come to 2-4 Saturday adoption days every month at the Apple Valley Petco or Burnwllle Petco from  11-3.

Also looking for those that love to make 2 minute videos with your video camera during the adoption day on specific dogs that need a boost to help them find a perfect home. If you have a camera and know how to load a video on UTube, you are it!

Call us, 651-463-8747 or email for more Info


Also, the Last Hope Cat Division is in need of KITTEN/CAT FOSTERS.  Some cats require short stints to recover from a surgery or are too terrified to be placed in the Petco habitats, and we are in desperate need for persons who can take in those cats just to help them adjust to life outside their old home.  We also have pregnant cats who need a place to birth their babies and be safe until the babies are weaned.   Lastly, we have a need for persons who are home either part or full time to bottle feed little baby kittens until they are weaned at 6-8 weeks. Bottle feeding is time consuming but is so rewarding to see those little babies grow into loveable cats!

Current needs

As we approach kitten and puppy season, we find our supply of puppy and kitten food almost depleted. We try to feed all our clients Hill's Science Diet or Royal Canin. I you can help our furry friendes, kindly drop off a bag or 2 at our regularly scheduled adoption times. Times


Last Hope Needs Foster Homes!

Our fosters are a central part of our success in saving dogs and cats who will be euthanized simply because they were born! To date Last Hope has rescued 43,000 animals!

Last Hope will provide you with the necessary training and supplies as they are available. You simply pick the animal(s) up at one of our local vets, take them home and love and care for them and bring them to one of our weekly adoption events.

If you enjoy meeting new people and making new friends, this can be a way you can make a difference in the the life of a hopeless and homeless dog or cat!
