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.

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

 Last Hope appreciates any Donations toward our financial needs. All donations are tax

I invite you to join Last Hope as a Foster Volunteer to become part of saving and helping the many cats and dogs in need. Please visit a Last Hope Adoption Event and  say hello to our many furry rescues looking for a forever Home.
