We have rescued three babies and they are they BEST! They aren't "dogs" they are FAMILY and we are soooo blessed to have our 4-legged babies...

We pamper the two female pups we fostered and then adopted. They have brought us so much joy.

Friends, if you are ready to help a shelter animal in need, we are currently in need of elevated pet beds and other enrichment items to keep them happy for their stay here at HOPE!

We currently need around 160 beds to give every large kennel dog a bed! A bed can make a world of difference!
You can go to Animalrescueaid.org to order a bed for shelter dogs in need (and it comes with a Kong toy for every bed ordered) or to kuranda.com.

If you aren't able to help with a pet bed, please consider donating items such as busy bones, rope toys, any dog/cat toys, scratch posts, blankets, milkbones, or any other dog chews.

We want to send a huge shout out to Pat Hightower for her amazing donation of 10 Kuranda beds!

Can you use towels-I have many!

I'm planning to order one or two to donate. Which sizes do you need most?

I just ordered a couple of beds. I also sent canned food a few weeks ago (from Amazon). Is there any way to check and make sure you received it? Amazon just says “left in mailbox”.

Where are you located at?

Ordered a bed from the animalrerescueaid.org ❤️

I have 2 that I’ll bring by after work Wednesday.

Just bought a bed from @shopmyotherhalf!

Why when you go to the first website and select Hope Humane Society it shows shipping to an address on Rannoch?
