Our Mission

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 shelter animal.

All animals in our programs are neutered before 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.
  • Early neutering of all kittens and puppies as well as mandatory neutering of 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.
  • Adoption programs that seek to place all LAST HOPE dogs and cats in caring, responsible, and financially solvent homes.
  • Community outreach and public awareness about the cat and dog overpopulation and the tremendous number of unwanted animals, especially Pit Bulls, in the shelters.
  • Free or low-cost rabies and other vaccine clinics open to the public and veterinary assistance to those owners showing dire economic need.
  • Cooperation between rescues and municipal shelters to help solve the Pit Bull problem. We hosted a Pit Bull predicament conference in 2008 and a Bully Breed Brigade in 2011, 2012, and 2013.

2018 marks 37 years of animal rescue for LAST HOPE!!
