MISSION STATEMENT

Last Hope Inc., a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization incorporated in 1982, is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of death-due pound, stray, and abandoned animals. Our dog and cat adoption center is located at 3300 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh, New York.

Through its many programs, Last Hope is attempting to reduce the tremendous cat and dog overpopulation problem on Long Island, encourage responsible and affordable pet ownership, and transform the public image of the typical pound animal.

All animals in our programs are neutered before adoption so that no Last Hope animal will ever contribute to the cat and dog overpopulation problem.

We support the following programs:

  • Rescue of death-due, abandoned, and stray animals. We make trips to municipal shelters on Long Island, have a waiting list for stray cats and receive phone calls where we advise the public about the various animal problems that they are encountering.
  • Early neutering of all kittens and puppies as well as regular neutering of all adult animals adopted through our programs.
  • Feral cat trapping. Through our Fix-a-Feral Program, we make it financially feasible for the public to spay and neuter the feral cats that they are feeding. Volunteers assist the public with trapping feral cats on Long Island. Traps can also be borrowed directly from the organization with a deposit. Workshops have been held to educate the public about this ever-growing problem, and we offer demonstrations in the use of humane traps.
  • Adoption programs that seek to place the Last Hope dog or cat in caring, responsible, and financially solvent homes.
  • Community outreach and public awareness campaign to make the public knowledgeable about the cat and dog overpopulation problem and the tremendous number of unwanted animals in the shelters.
