Button, Daisy, and Jake

Button, Daisy, and Jake need new homes! Susan would find great comfort in knowing that her three dogs will be placed in caring and loving homes. Although they certainly could be adopted by a single family, they will also do well if placed in three different homes.

Button, a 7-year old female walker beagle mix, is slow to warm up, but loves to play once she gets to know you. She is spayed and microchipped and doesn’t currently need medications for her heart murmur. Button likes extra attention and may nip ankles if she feels neglected.

Daisy, a rescue dog, is a 12-year old lab mix with no health or behavioral issues. She is spayed and microchipped. This friendly, laid-back female gets along well with small dogs.

Jake is a 5-year old neutered mixed breed that was originally rescued in the woods. He has lots of energy and “loves anybody that loves on him.” Jake hasn’t yet interacted with small children, but he’s never shown any signs of aggression and has no health or behavioral issues.

All dogs are housebroken and are a healthy weight for their size. Would you consider opening your heart and home to one, two, or all three of these dogs?

New Love for Lovey

Update Dec 4:
Lovey is now back at the Gulf Coast Humane Society, where she was originally rescued. As of today, Lovey is still available to be matched with a loving new family. Contact the Gulf Coast Humane Society directly for details. We are grateful to their organization for graciously assisting with our pet adoptions! 

Even though, at 11 years old, Lovey is a senior dog, her spirit and good health defy that label. A few months after being adopted from the Humane Society, circumstances changed for Lovey’s family. Walter passed away recently in hospice care and his wife, Dotty, is unable to keep Lovey. Dotty will be moving with her daughter, who is allergic to dogs. Dotty wants to assure that Lovey goes to a new home. Lovey, a mixed breed, is a great companion who loves to be cuddled and loves to play with family members. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and in good health. She weighs about 45 pounds. Being an only dog is important as she doesn’t care for interactions with other dogs. If you are a fan of senior dogs, she would make a wonderful companion. Hope can provide startup supplies and support.

Jewelry Sale Benefits Hope’s Pet Program

To benefit Hope’s Pet Program, Hope volunteer Margot Hill is donating half the proceeds from sales of her hand-crafted Bing Gems earrings, necklaces and bracelets available at #1 New York Nails & Spa, owned and operated by Tony Pham at 25987 South Tamiami Trail in Bonita Springs through Thanksgiving.

Bing Gems is named after Hill’s dog Bing, one of the beloved Jack Russell Terriers she brings to visit and warm the hearts of patients and families both at  Joanne’s House in Bonita Springs and in their homes for more than six years.

“It is truly rewarding work,” said Hill, who retired from the Boston Police Department after 30 years of service. Since 2014, Hill has raised more than $1,500 for the pet program through her jewelry sales.

Hitch Celebrates a Year of Volunteering

Personal Treasures Pillow Provides Comfort

“Thank you and Hope volunteer Rosemary Sowa so much for the beautiful memorial pillows. My oldest cat is always scared of thunderstorms and hides, usually under beds or away from windows. This weekend during the thunderstorms this is where I found her, curled up in “Gramma’s pillows.” My husband and I can’t thank you enough for these wonderful memory pillows.”

Not-So-Plain Jane

Update January 3: Jane went to live with Ester, her kids and other cat. Ester reports that the cats and kids are fast becoming friends and that they have all fallen in love with Jane.  They are so grateful to Hope for the new addition to their family.

Jane is a healthy 12 year old, 15 pound calico cat. Though her claws are intact, she never scratches furniture or other items in the home. She gets along well with other cats, but she has not had interactions with children or dogs. Jane is spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Can you help us find a new home for Jane?
