Frog Prince Fund

frog-webOnce upon a time, in far away in a land called Virginia, a stray Chihuahua named “Frog” suffered from painful and itchy, oozing, infected ears, neglected so long. His ears became deformed, resembling mini-molten volcanoes.  Every moment of every day “Frog” was in distress; yet, he retained his sweet disposition.

Somewhere a wicked witch cast this evil spell on him and turned him out to fend for himself until he wound up in an over-crowded local shelter. Miraculously, he was chosen for a transport up North.

Then “Frog” arrived at Last Hope on Long Island where help was the wave of a wand away.

An expensive operation by specialists on each ear called a TECA* could remove this evil spell and remedy his discomfort.

And “Frog’s” fairy god veterinarians at The Animal Medical Center (AMC) in NYC will be doing something magical. The AMC is providing the surgery plus covering the expenses for one ear through their remarkable AMC TO THE RESCUE program.

Because Last Hope needs to raise several thousand dollars for his other ear, we are asking for your help:

Every dollar; every donation you give will kiss “Frog”, turning him into a “Prince” who can live happily ever after in better health.

To donate to Last Hope’s “Frog Prince Fund” to help “Frog” and other dogs needing medical metamorphosis, please click on the PayPal link below, and add a note designating the “Frog Prince Fund”.

Donations and kisses for “Frog” can also be mailed to:

Last Hope Animal Rescue
PO Box 7025
Wantagh, NY 11793

“Frog” thanks you in advance for your kindness and would like to share some shots from his “Frog Prince Fund” photo shoot with you.

(*TECA stands for total ear canal ablation.)

Hot Rods! Hot Dogs!

SPECIAL THANKS to the members of Long Island Vettes for generously making Last Hope the recipient of vendor registration fees (over $2000) from their fantastic August 3rd  “Classic Car Show” at Bethpage Federal Credit Union in Bethpage. We also raised over $1,000 at our booth during the event.

Members of Long Island Vettes even set up our tent and table while we were parking the Jeep. (Oops, sorry…do not transport tables, blunky stuff or dogs in a Vette). We saw some of our alumni adopted dogs like “Arlo” there enjoying the show too.

“Pollie”,”Ace”, “Walker”, “Vic Tanny”- current dogs at Last Hope, plus “Chevy” from Hempstead Town Shelter (who is recovering from a hit-by-car broken pelvis) got a day on the town to meet and mingle with a crowd of very nice people. “Vic Tanny” has a wonderful adoption application because of the car show and is scheduled to go home soon.

Cuteness overload!

Aug kittensSo last month we shared with you the oodles of kittens we had and were looking for foster homes for…well, now many of them are at our adoption center and satellite locations looking for homes – this is just a sampling of the cuteness that can become a part of your family…or maybe even consider one of our adult cats!

Aug AdultsFYI, do you know which cats have been at Last Hope the longest?

  • Ray has been with us for SEVEN YEARS.
  • Lindsey has been with us for SIX YEARS.
  • Shirley has been with us for FIVE YEARS.
  • Evan has been with us for FOUR YEARS.
  • Dot has been with us for  THREE YEARS
  • Elvis, Flower, Calista, Kildare and Nicole have all been waiting over TWO YEARS.

After all they were kittens once too but still need a loving home and family to call their own!
