H. O. P. E. for Animals
but this precious gift must be protected in order to thrive.
H.O.P.E. for Animals is committed to improving the lives of unwanted and homeless animals.
By promoting education for pet parenting, behavioral modification (both human and animal companion), spay and neuter programs, and working in conjunction with other shelters and animal rescue groups, we hope to reduce the number of animals euthanized every day.
H.O.P.E. stands for
for the Prevention of Euthanasia
But what does that mean?
Last year in Allen County, over 14,000 cats and dogs were taken in by the animal welfare orgainzations in this area.
Almost 10,000 had to be euthanized.
In some cases euthanasia is the best option for these animals. If they are sick or injured or pose a serious danger to humans, euthanasia is a humane way to end their suffering.
But the fact is that the majority of these animals are being euthanized because we as pet owners and responsible community members have failed them.
H.O.P.E. for Animals' mission is to reduce the number of animals being euthanized unnecessarily.
