Hope Animal Rescue of Iowa is 100% volunteer run and foster based. We rely on the willingness of our fosters to care and love for our adoptable pets as we do not have a shelter location. We made great strides in 2018, nearly tripling our adoption numbers from the prior year. We have expanded our network of business partners, rescue collaborations and fundraising events to continue to work toward our rescue’s goals of rescuing pets in need. Our foster families are able to keep pets out of shelters, limit the stress during the adoption process and prepare families of realistic expectations of their new furbaby. We plan to use the Challenge as an opportunity to raise funds for vetting costs and pet supplies. We are optimistic the Challenge will bring more awareness to our rescue’s mission of providing HOPE to animals in need.
Hope Animal Rescue of Iowa is a foster-based rescue with temporary homes throughout Central Iowa. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, we do not pay any salaries and 100% of donations go to benefit animals in need. We do not have a physical shelter location, which allows us to save more animals rather than having the expenses a shelter would take away. We made great strides in 2018, nearly tripling our adoption numbers from the prior year. We have been able to extend our community network with business support, rescue organization collaborations, and community events. The Challenge will bring more awareness to our rescue so we may continue to rescue, protect, and provide hope to more animals in need.
