So, grab a cup of coffee and join us on this journey of compassion and community.
Who is Helping Our Pets Everyday?
HOPE is made up of a team of volunteers who are dedicated to improving the lives of pets and their owners.
They work tirelessly to raise funds, coordinate events, and provide support to those in need.
Their mission is to keep pets in loving homes and prevent them from ending up in shelters or being abandoned.
They rehome cats and dogs who deserve a second chance at life. Aside from their sanctuary, HOPE also supports several foster guardians to prepare these animals for adoption.
This charity offers veterinary care to these animals to ensure they are happy and healthy. They also provide these services to pets in the community at a relatively low price.
HOPE also hosts different events and fundraisers to continue supporting more animals.
How Did Helping Our Pets Everyday Start?
Helping Our Pets Everyday began in 2003 when a group of people wanted to make a difference in the lives of the many dogs and cats that were being euthanized in the City of Upland.
Since then, HOPE has grown into a thriving non-profit organization with a network of volunteers, donors, and community partners who share their mission of helping pets in need.
The charity has been making a difference in the lives of homeless cats and dogs and they have rescued thousands of animals over the last two decades.
After rescuing these animals, they rehabilitate them and get them ready for adoption through socialization and medical care.
In 2005, HOPE started providing spaying and neutering for pets in their community. This was made possible through a partnership with Western University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and their VACS mobile van.
They have since spayed and neutered over a thousand dogs and cats for Upland residents, making a significant impact on the overpopulation crisis in their community.
When the HOPE team noticed the decline in the living conditions of the dogs and cats being housed at the old Upland Shelter facility, they became the driving force behind a new shelter construction.
The new shelter officially opened in February 2010, providing a safer and better living space for animals in need.
What Does Helping Our Pets Everyday Do?
Helping Our Pets Everyday provides medical care, vaccines, and sanctuary for pets in their community.
They are known for rescuing homeless dogs and cats in Upland, California, then rehabilitating them so they can find loving forever homes.
HOPE provides all the necessary veterinary care, such as spaying or neutering, to these animals with the help of private donations.
Sometimes, they provide additional medical care for sick, rescued dogs and cats to get them ready for adoption.
HOPE hosts adoption events at the Colonies Crossroads Shopping Center in California. The process includes an application, interview, and home visitation.
The charity also provides low prices for spaying, neutering, and other surgeries for dogs and cats. The VACS mobile vehicle provides service on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
You can find more details about their spaying and neutering services here.
HOPE offers fundraising opportunities, such as SEE’S CANDIES. Check out their website and order candies to help support the dogs and cats in their care.
