“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.”


Last Hope Dog Division is looking for some Large Breed foster homes for dogs 1-4 yrs old that are 40-70 lbs. We provide food, kennels and leash and collars and even some toys!  You provide the love! You will be working on basic house manners and walking on a leash.

Must be at least 17 with all members of family okay with it! Must be able to come to 2-4 Saturday adoption days every month at the Apple Valley Petco or Burnwllle Petco from  11-3.

Also looking for those that love to make 2 minute videos with your video camera during the adoption day on specific dogs that need a boost to help them find a perfect home. If you have a camera and know how to load a video on UTube, you are it!

Call Angela 651-451-7603 or email for more Info


Also, the Last Hope Cat Division is in need of KITTEN/CAT FOSTERS.  Some cats require short stints to recover from a surgery or are too terrified to be placed in the Petco habitats, and we are in desperate need for persons who can take in those cats just to help them adjust to life outside their old home.  We also have pregnant cats who need a place to birth their babies and be safe until the babies are weaned.   Lastly, we have a need for persons who are home either part or full time to bottle feed little baby kittens until they are weaned at 6-8 weeks. Bottle feeding is time consuming but is so rewarding to see those little babies grow into loveable cats!

                We would like to thank all those who helped make this years garage sale a huge success.

The sale raised over $5,800.00 to help Last Hope save more unwanted, homeless, sick and

injured dogs and cats and give them a better life.

We will continue to accept furniture items that we can sell for Last Hope.

Thank you!

Fundraising/Donation Coordinator


Last Hope animal rescue was started 30 years ago. We are incorporated & tax exempt.  Over 40,000 unwanted cats & dogs have been  placed in to new homes.  Thank you to volunteer fosters, businesses, members & friends that have donated.  All cats & dogs are in foster homes & those available for adoption are brought to Apple Valley & Burnsville PETCO stores each Sat. 11 A.M. to 3 P.M. 

Current needs

As we approach kitten and puppy season, we find our supply of puppy and kitten food almost depleted. We try to feed all our clients Hill's Science Diet or Royal Canin. I you can help our furry friendes, kindly drop off a bag or 2 at our regularly scheduled adoption times. Times

We are always in need of baskets.


Last Hope Needs Foster Homes!

Our fosters are a central part of our success in saving dogs and cats who will be euthanized simply because they were born! To date Last Hope has rescued 43,000 animals!

Last Hope will provide you with the necessary training and supplies as they are available. You simply pick the animal(s) up at one of our local vets, take them home and love and care for them and bring them to one of our weekly adoption events.

If you enjoy meeting new people and making new friends, this can be a way you can make a difference in the the life of a hopeless and homeless dog or cat!
