About us

Last Hope Puppy


Proudly Serving Minnesota Communities for 35 Years



Last Hope, Inc., has been a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization since 1985 dedicated to saving abandoned, unwanted and helpless dogs and cats. Animals received by Last Hope are  immediately examined by one of Last Hope's veterinarian Partners.  Medical care, as needed, is provided before animals are placed in Last Hope's Foster Home Network with volunteers throughout the seven county Minneapolis - St. Paul metro area. All animals available for adoption are spayed or neutered.

Until permanently adopted, our animals stay in our volunteer Foster Homes and receive loving foster care. Our volunteers care for sick or injured animals until they are fully recovered. Animals are not available for Adoption until they have recovered and are in good health.

Last Hope does not believe in destruction of healthy pets. Based  only upon Veterinary recommendation, animals suffering from incurable illness or fatal injury are humanely euthanized.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and reading our many inspiring  Success Stories about rescues of cats and dogs.
