Homes for Orphaned Pets Exist (HOPE): Saratoga Dog Lovers Non-Profit Spotlight

HOPE-8x8-olHomes for Orphaned Pets Exist (HOPE), a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization of volunteers from Saratoga, New York, and surrounding counties, helps abandoned, orphaned and neglected animals find their forever homes with loving families. HOPE aims to find these furry pals homes where they can become part of a family, be a therapy pet, or a loyal best friend. HOPE’s ultimate goal is to find suitable adopters who will provide them with a lifelong commitment of love and care.

227026_10150185333505817_7938606_nHOPE maintains a unique commitment to take in animals that are not easily adopted out of shelters. With the donations they receive from caring individuals and businesses in the community, (learn more about HOPE’s upcoming HOPE Gala on Friday, November 6th and other upcoming events!) they are able to accept older animals or animals that may require extra medical attention or care.

All HOPE pet adoptions in Saratoga Springs NY begin with a visit to a local veterinarian prior to adoption, where de-worming, spaying/neutering, vaccinations, and further medical care is given as needed to make sure your new family member begins his or her new life as healthy and happy as possible.

In August 2015, HOPE animal rescue returned to their original mission of rescuing animals, and the former HOPE low cost spay and neuter clinic, located at 4255 Route 50 in Saratoga became part of the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society. HOPE donated a van, contents of the clinic to sustain operations and gave a monetary gift to assist with the transfer of the HOPE clinic operations to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society (MHHS).
