Help Out, Partner, and Engage (HOPE)
Help Out, Partner, and Engage (HOPE) helps animals by supporting the people who love them. We work to address the lack of accessible, affordable pet care resources by providing free services and information. This critical lifeline helps to keep pets healthy, happy, and in loving homes.

Helping People and Pets
Building trustful relationships with people and establishing an ongoing presence in the community is critical to making a real impact. Experience has shown us that when we extend our compassion to human beings as well as animals, we can create long-term and meaningful social change. HOPE embraces the human component of the human-animal equation, while furthering our mission to protect animals and support people's love and compassion for them.
