Last Hope Foster Homes Needed!

Last Hope foster homes are the key to our success in saving cats and dogs. Each new foster home saves an animal that might have been mistreated or abandoned and placed at risk of being euthanized.  To date, Last Hope has rescued over 45,000 animals !

Last Hope will provide you with the necessary training and supplies and covers veterinary costs. You simply pick the surrendered animal(s) up at one of our local vets, take them home, love and care for them, and attend our weekly adoption events where the animal will find a new forever home.

You will gain the knowledge of the fostered animals behavior, personality, and training needs, allowing you to be the animals advocate in meeting with potential adopters.

If you enjoy meeting new people and making new friends, this can be a rewarding way for you to make a difference in the life of a helpless and homeless cat or dog.

The Last Hope Cat & Kitten Division and Dog & Puppy Division are in need of new foster homes.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Picked up my little guy from foster mom. She was kind. Gave me all the paperwork, his food, micro chip and sent us on our way. We love our little furbaby and we are aware of all the issues we are tending with. The only issue is we are not sure picture of our guy is same as him. Ours has a defect that is not apparent on the furbaby. I do love what they do and stand up for. Big hugs to this rescue."
    Wendy E.
  • "I dropped off kitty food that my kitty would not eat. My kitty hates liver. I talked to the gentleman there and was told they are in need of dog and cat food for all the animals that are in foster homes. Please adopt or foster animals, and please have you pet spayed or neutered AND chipped."
    Mary L.
  • "I worked with Last Hope to surrender a tiny kitten I found in a ditch on Thursday September 27th. It was a pleasure dealing with you guys and you made the process so easy. When the kitten is up for adoption I would love to swing by during the adoption event to see the kitten. Thanks for taking the kitty in."
  • "Last Hope bought us our loving Calvin (Rugby) He was very sick when they got him and took excellent care of him before and after we adopted. He has filled our hearts with love. Thank you Last Hope for bringing us together."
    Heather D.
  • "I just wanted to thank you. I adopted a dog named Brandi at the adoption event at Petco in Apple Valley. Even though it has been only a day, she has made a big impact on us. She is funny and smart, she has been playing with her new sister nonstop. The Last Hope Foster, Jim, did a great job of teaching her to trust a new human family. Thank you again for being there when these animals need you the most."
