Donate to H.O.P.E. For Animals

H.O.P.E. for Animals is committed to serving the community and reaching our goal of eliminating preventable euthanasia of companion animals and community cats through low cost spay/neuter surgery and wellness care.
Due to the COVID-19 mandates, H.O.P.E. will be be offering services via appointment only and on a limited basis.

How can you help? We are still a local small business and just like the other businesses and nonprofits we have limited income with the restrictions and we have bills. Donations and grants are more important today then ever before.

Now that our clients are able to return, we expect to see many more applications for assistance, and a much higher need for our low-cost services. So, as you consider the effects of this pandemic, please consider making a gift to the clinic and in turn providing options to all the families who will be seeking help from us here at H.O.P.E. to care for the pets they love.

Be safe. We will see you soon

Team H.O.P.E.

“H.O.P.E. saved me from a nightmare! Someone dumped 4 pregnant female cats at my barn & before I knew it I had 20 cats! They came to my barn, caught them & neutered them. They are awesome & we need more people like them. Thank you H.O.P.E.” D. Lovellette Thompson
“Thank you for not only offering a great service at an extremely reasonable price, but for also treating us with care – even calling to follow up after our cat’s surgery. I highly recommend this clinic!” -R. Hanson
“Great place to get care for your pet at affordable, or more affordable, prices. They are great with the animals and really care. They go out of their way to make the animal comfortable. Took in a shy kitty who likes to hide when he is scare. They covered his little head with his blanket so he felt safe while he was examined. Love the care they give.” – A. Hoerger
“The staff is great! And the prices made it worth the hour drive for me and my six month old Lab.” – K. Sweeny Engle
“I ended up with a wild cat that needed to be spayed and get a rabies shot. Didn’t intend on making her a part of our family but we did anyway. Without their services and friendly staff, I never would have been able to afford it at the time. Now I am bringing all of my fur babies back there and cannot believe how wonderful everyone is. These people truly do care about your pets and are wonderful at helping you make sure you can afford the care your pets deserve. They also do a wonderful job advocating for stray animals and shelters! Won’t go anywhere else now.” – A. Elizabeth
“H.O.P.E. for Animals is such an asset to so many communities because of both their local clinic and spay/neuter transport services.

“We went in for the microchipping special with 3 of our dogs. One of the office ladies came and sat in the floor and talked to them while we were waiting. The two ladies who did the chips were very professional and courteous. I would recommend this clinic to clients and friends!” – V. Bailey-Moon Ncg
“I have brought a cat and a dog to get care from these caring professionals. The first time, I came in after a very stressful travel in…my cats were freaking out and getting wildly sick. The staff not only helped me clean it up, but also pretended it was normal when I gagged and got sick in the clinic. The second trip was much less traumatic…my dog was event free. Long story short…THANK YOU for caring so much about our animals.” – C. Shull

Your donations helped Reba!

With help from donations that you made -- H.O.P.E. was able to help this adorable kitten!

Thank you for helping to save a life!

This kitten, Reba, came into H.O.P.E. through our community cat program.
She was un-owned, kind of feral, and in need of our help.

With funds from our assistance programs we were able to remove a parasite from above Reba's eye
(see that there is still a slight wink in the picture).
We spayed her, vaccinated and medicated her, and sent her home with a staff member who fostered her.

Thanks to help from you -- Reba is now healthy, spayed, and living in a forever home.
