Homes for Orphaned Pets Exist (H.O.P.E.)
Homes for Orphaned Pets Exist (H.O.P.E.) is a not-for-profit organization of animal lovers from Saratoga and surrounding counties who are dedicated to assisting animals whose owners have passed away or can no longer keep them. Some of the pets are surrendered directly to H.O.P.E. but others come from various local rescues or shelters which are at capacity. Many are senior dogs and cats or have special needs. H.O.P.E. gives these homeless pets a second chance for a wonderful life; to be part of a family, to be a therapy pet or just to be someone’s best friend. The goal of H.O.P.E. is to find suitable adopters who will provide these pets with a lifelong commitment of love and care.
All H.O.P.E. pets are seen by a veterinarian prior to adoption where they are given appropriate medical care, including spaying/neutering and vaccinations. Veterinarians provide additional medical treatment if needed.
H.O.P.E. also has a feral cat fund with which they help individuals who trap feral cats to pay for their spaying or neutering, and a sympathy fund to help with emergency surgeries needed for pets.
