Five months in a municipal pound 3 hours away..his time was up! So he came home with me!
Ewiee adopted on April 20th and Phoebe adopted on July 10th from HOPE Humane Society
This is Misha. He came to HOPE 11 months ago with an extremely swollen face and a swollen and lame arm. During surgery it was discovered that he had a fish hook embedded in his arm. The vet had to amputate his arm and shoulder blade. I adopted him two weeks later. Now he's a year old and nothing but trouble. He eats everything (his favorite is shoelaces). He beats up my other cat but I catch them secretly playing sometimes. He trills when he's playing and meows when he's hungry. He has the biggest yawn you've ever seen. He climbs the curtains and destroys the blinds. He has the cutest sleepy-eyed look and if he's out, he's out. He loves to get pets and scratches but don't you dare try to hold him. He plays fetch and has a love/hate thing with water. We call him a puppy-cat since he's so dog-like. He doesn't miss his fourth leg and I can only imagine the havoc if he had it. He's smart. You can always see the wheels turning. He's Misha.
The picture on the left was one of the first I ever saw of my Lucy. My Mom found her in Elkins, AR in their yard. She wanted to keep her, but already has 2 pits that wouldn't be too keen on another dog in the house. Reluctantly, Mom took her to Elkins PD, but also started sharing her info with everyone. I knew from the moment I saw her that she needed me. Or maybe I needed her?? She was starving and had been dumped and wandering for about a year. The picture on the right is from a couple weeks ago. Now she's fat, spoiled, hogs the bed, thinks all hot dogs are hers, and she has to constantly be touching whoever is home. It breaks my heart to think that this beautiful girl spent most of her life chained to a tree and being used as a means for some bastard to capitalize on. Her teeth are broken and worn down to her gums with only one incisor left, her back right leg was lost in what we were told was a hit and run, her poor tummy shows just how often she was bred, and her poor paws are callused. Despite all the suffering she endured, she still loves unconditionally. Some days she makes me crazy, but most days I'm just grateful that she chose me to be her human. 💛 #adoptdontshop #whorescuedwho
Gracie (left) adopted Feb 2014 from the Charleston dog shelter and Chloe (right) adopted Sep 2016 from Hope. Love my girls 🧡💛
We adopted Corbin for my birthday almost 2 years ago. He had been returned to Hope before we adopted him, and as soon as I saw him I knew he was the one. He absolutely adores our other rescue Stella, and has adopted my 5 year old nephew as his own. He loves cuddles, and is extremely playful. He is a tripod, but doesn't have any trouble keeping up with our other dogs. He is amazing.
Atticus came from Little Rock, after he had to retire as an autism service dog due to his family not caring for him properly. He was a heartworm positive baby, had several other parasites and was seriously underweight, but now he is full and happy and will do any tricks for his squeaky pig.
MARLEY (AKA Johnny) was adopted 8-5-18. He has filled out and grown an inch and a half😍 and is currently in Service Dog Training.. LOVED AND Spoiled like he deserves! SO HAPPY HIS FIRST ADOPTION DIDN'T WORK OUT, Their loss OUR GAIN😍❤❤❤
Still waiting to officially adopt her, but she was a foster baby we got when she was only 5 weeks old. She’s now four months and the official date is happening soon! 😁
Daisy Mae has been in and out of the shelter a few times when we wanted to take her out on a tails and trails walk but she was out at an adoption event. When we returned from our hike with another pup, we stopped by to see Daisy Mae when Amber Neal twisted our arms and convinced us to adopt her, even tho I already had 4 at home. Little did we know that she was going to be the one that woke us up when our daughter had a seizure in the middle of the night! She’s a perfect fit for our family!
Katie, my former heartworm positive foster who came into the shelter as a stray. I walked in to foster a heartworm dog and picked her sight unseen. I chose a small breed to foster because I was partial to larger breeds and thought it would be easier to return her after about three months of fostering. 😂. She never went back. She is the sweetest little love bug with a bit of a sassy streak. She is our pretty, pretty princess.
Zoe and Jerry! We adopted Jerry in February 2017. He was considered a difficult to adopt dog. But, there was a video posted on Hope's site of him playing. I watched over and over, and made my husband watch it. I just knew he was my fur baby. He still has some fear issues , but he is a 1000 times better. In March of this year we decided that Jerry could use a friend to play with. And I knew the humane society was over filled, so Jerry and I went and met Haven (now named Zoe). There was some food aggression issues with her, but gosh is she open for correction. She is so smart and easy to teach. She and Jerry play so well together. And she is a perfect member of our family. We love her so much.
My sweet Jasmine. After seeing her photo from a friend who had been trying to warm up to her at the shelter, I brought her home for a doggie weekend away and never took her back. She was stray brought to the shelter with her 9 puppies. She was extremely scared and timid and I can only imagine how terrified she must have been in the shelter. It literally took her months to trust and love each member of our family. She still retreats to the bedroom when we have guests, keeping quietly to herself. But she absolutely LOVES every animal I have brought home, particularly the baby kittens I fostered last year. She must have been a great momma to her babies. She is now my constant shadow and I’m so grateful we found each other.
This is my sweet boy, Sox that I rescued and he passed away a year ago. He came to me and had been shot and was scared of a collar and leash. He never totally got over some of his issues of being abused. But he was my baby and always knew I saved him. He was spoiled and loved once I got him. So glad I saved him. He was the best. 🐶❤️.
This lazy girl, Molly, was adopted back in early May. We got her for our daughter to have a best bud, and a best bud she has. Her favorite thing is to brush her and make sure that she eats every day
This is Barry! He is the the real “owner” of Bookish: downtown. He greets customers when they walk in and LOVES kids. We are so glad he lets us work with him! 😂
This is Athena, we started fostering her and she has claimed my husband as her person. She has to see him or be near him all the time she is loving and as sweet as they come We failed as a foster and adopted her she is now a member of the family.
This is our rescue, Violet Jane.💜
Our forever traveling rescues. Tilly (brown cutie) was adopted from Hope a couple years ago and loves traveling just as much as we do!
We have 6 rescues...3 from Hope. This is Darwin. He was returned after not getting along with other pets, but happily he is now best buddy to Sophie, Ziggy, Maggie, Alfie and Janey.
Rocky (Rambo when I adopted from Hope). Living the couch life! Grateful, loyal and is madly in love with me!! ADOPT!! Don’t shop!!!
My rescue guys. Couldn't imagine life without my boys.
My two great Dane girls one has a bite history the other chases cattle these are 2 of 10 Danes I have rescued rescue dogs rock

Many thanks for helping us continue our work. #ittakesavillage #raisethemfundsThe art is of our friend @hesjustaboyd. The words reflect what we believe in. The mural was put together by @rachelrodemann. The wall is at @hopehumanesociety. We are using proceeds from your purchases to pay for the product, printing, and shipping of 100 “Be Kind. Work Hard. Rescue Dogs” tees and tanks to their facility so they can use them to raise money to continue their mission. The donation will be sent out next week. Each tee/tank can be sold from $25-$30 dollars at their facility, hopefully meaning $2500-$3000 in funds.
A Rescue Strong Rack effort made possible by a beautiful community. Thanks for your support. Thanks for sharing our mission. Thanks for being part of the Rescue Strong Community.

I absolutely adore this mural, thank you to everyone who played a part in this! It's a perfect depiction of our shelter and what we stand for. And the pibble is adorable!❤️
Why rescue pit bulls? They maul and kill more humans and pets than all other breeds. There are other breeds also.
Our adoptable babies had some visitors today from Classical Conversations homeschool group who dropped in to read them all a story!

Can't even imagine so many empty kennels 😲We will not stop until we get leash and/or spay/neuter laws.
What about a license law to go with it????
This is why we need to pass a spay/neuter law.
thetruthaboutpitbulls.blogspot.com/2010/08/there-are-three-kinds-of-lies-lies.html?m=1 Pit bulls need the truth told about them so adopters are prepared for these dogs. it is not true that 86.8% of pit bulls have passed temperament tests. That's not what the stats are saying. It says 86.8% of the pit bulls tested passed - and only dogs who have been trained and have a chance at passing will have an owner/shelter pay for them to take the test. Many shelters train to the test to get pits to pass in inflated numbers. And even if they pass, it doesn't mean they are a safe dog because of their genetic unpredictability. You also can't use the stats to compare breeds, it simply does not work that way when you have uneven samples and a test that is scored differently based on individual dogs. Telling the truth about pits is not punishment, its about safety and getting the right home for what the dog needs. The public is well aware of what pit bulls are, and they won't adopt form shelters that they feel lie to them.
Love my sweet baby!!! Ppl please understand it's not the breed it's the owner's! I've had pitties in my family for yrs and they have been nothing but loving big old babies!!!
Just because you would like the American Temperament Test Standard to be a temperament test for a balanced pet, it is not. It was developed by Alfons Ertelt in 1977 as a screening test for potential Schutzhund candidates - ie dogs that do bite work like police dogs. He was not an animal behaviorist, he was a schutzhund fan. He wanted a quick way to screen dogs to see if they were bold and aggressive enough to do police work. As much as you wish otherwise, it is not in any way an indicator of a safe pet. The test itself only takes 15 minutes and as a screening test, was designed only to weed out the most unlikely candidates for attack dog training. A dog that panics when it hears a gunshot will fail this test. A dog that balks when asked to walk on wire fencing will fail this test. No part of this test looks at how the dog reacts in a home or with children or with other animals. These are things that are immediately obvious to anyone who takes even a cursory glance at the test. Why would you be attempting to prove pit bulls make great pets based on this test? thetruthaboutpitbulls.blogspot.com/2010/08/there-are-three-kinds-of-lies-lies.html?m=1
How often do we actually see the deed punished? There was no justice served in the death of Joan Kappan, no justice for Ayden Evans, no justice for De’Treck Omar Johnson, I could go on and on with victims just from Arkansas alone. These folks are dead, the dog owners are not punished. You lose respect when you post untruthful platitudes.
I wish people would become aware. Pit bulls killed three times as many people last year as ALL other dogs combined. They have been the number one canine to kill humans for decades all over the world. Another baby was killed today and these pit cultist are saying HORRIBLE things about the mother and they dont even know her. Pit freaks are NOT animal lovers.
We need to enforce our laws. Animal abandonment should be punished.
Must have spay and neuter laws. Protect these animals.
Do you still need a foster home? We are kitty lovers! We also have dogs, so any kitty will be able to get accustomed to dogs and other cats 😀
How can people do this Hope you find a foster
They are the most loving cats I’ve ever had! Please foster or adopt!!! I adopted, too.
Did they get a foster
Thank you for Rescurin g Them
