Hope Fund

The Hope Fund allows us to go above and beyond what is typically affordable to provide treatment and life-saving surgeries to homeless pets with pre-existing conditions. Donations from the Hope Fund have been used to pay for everything from heartworm treatments to amputations that greatly increase an animal's quality of life. The Hope Fund was started in 2010 in honor of a shelter dog named Hope, who entered our shelter with an untreated injury that had become life-threatening. The fund continues to be used today to treat a variety of ailments and provide a second chance to the homeless pets who deserve it most. 

Help a sick or injured shelter pet in need. Donate to the Hope Fund today!

Hope came in with neurological damage to a leg that had not healed properly. She had been wandering around by the landfill for quite some time until a kind stranger was able to win her over. That one kind act reminded her how much she loved to make friends and it was game on when it came to love time.  Unable to use the limb she had to drag it around with her and it caused severe, life-threatening lesions that meant the leg had to be amputated. The Hope Fund is actually named after this dog, when we asked the community to help her boy did they! We ended up getting the donations for her Surgery with enough left over to help the next sad case that would walk through our doors.  Up and running the very next day we knew this girl was something special. So did her new daddy, he came and adopted her after 48 days of waiting to start her new life that is filled with all the love she could ask for.

As soon as they were settled and had her meet her new hanai siblings she was off to her new life after 44 days here at MHS.
