House of Hope Animal Rescue is foster based.
We are not a shelter and do not own a kennel where our dogs are kept, all dogs are in foster homes. Once your application is approved, an adoption coordinator will assist you in scheduling a meet and greet with the dog(s) you’re interested in. You must be willing to travel to the foster’s home to meet the dogs.
Want to adopt from us? To get started, make sure you’ve read all of our adoption info, then fill out an adoption application that our volunteer adoption coordinators will review!
At times, there may be a waiting list for new furry family members. While this is great news for rescues like ours, we understand it can be frustrating for potential adopters. Please be patient with us, and keep in mind that we are entirely volunteer operated.
A NOTE ABOUT ADOPTION COST:
Adoption fees do not usually cover the amount House of Hope spends on each dog! All of our dogs have an intake exam with a vet, and receive vaccinations, deworming medication, and blood/fecal testing, along with any other treatments/medications recommended by our vets. Most dogs we take responsibility for also need to be spayed or neutered at the expense of the rescue. Many of our dogs are originally from crowded shelters in other areas of the country, and transporting them requires time, effort, and expenses. We also often commit to dogs that are Heartworm Positive – the treatment runs to over $1000 per dog.
