About Last Hope

Last Hope is a non-profit, no kill, foster based animal rescue organization which helps animals in the south-metro area of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. With the help of volunteers and members, Last Hope has placed more than 38,000 animals in good homes since October of 1985.

Animals received by Last Hope, Inc. are examined by a veterinarian and given medical care as needed. If over 5 months or older animals are spayed or neutered. Until permanently adopted, our animals stay in our volunteers homes and receive foster care.


Last Hope, Inc., has been a registered non-profit organization since 1985 dedicated to saving abandoned, unwanted and helpless dogs and cats. Animals received by Last Hope are examined by a veterinarian and given medical care as needed. If old enough, animals are spayed or neutered.

Until permanently adopted, our animals stay in our volunteer's homes and receive foster care. Our volunteers care for sick or injured animals until they are fully recovered. Animals are not placed in permanent homes until they have recovered and are in good health.

Last Hope does not believe in destruction of healthy pets. Only animals suffering from incurable illness or injury are humanely euthanized.

Become a Foster and Save a Life

Our fosters help to save the lives of dogs and cats that would otherwise be euthanized, for no other reason than just being born! The more foster homes we have, the more we can rescue off of death row at impounds, plus abandoned, sick, and injured pets.

Last Hope will provide you with the training and as many supplies as we have available. You simply pick the animal(s) up from one of our local vet's office and take them home, love and care for them, and then bring them to one of our weekly Saturday adoption events that are held in Apple Valley, Eagan, or Burnsville.

Enjoy meeting new people, making new friends, and knowing that you are a part of saving these helpless and homeless dogs and cats.

Questions and Answers

A list of commonly asked questions from our adopters and potential adopters and the answers to them. Have a question for us? Go tot he Contact Us page to ask us your question!

Why are the adoption fees so high? Our adoption fees help to offset the cost of caring for dogs and providing full vet care for them before they go into their new homes. Our adoption fees do not cover everything we put into our dogs. Local vet costs in 2011 were as follows: Vet Exam $38, Distemper 4 way shot $28, Heartworm/lymes test $45, Bordatella vaccine $20, Rabies shot $26, Worming $18, Spay for a medium size dog $300, Ear meds for dog with infection $25, Frontline $18, Heartguard tablet $15, Antibotics $35, This does not include broken legs, x-rays etc, cherry eye surgery, kennel cough, blood tests to find out problems, etc. Small dogs, especially those removed from puppy mills, often need extensive dentals which cost $300-350.

Where do you get your dogs from? We get our dogs from owner surrenders (such as divorce, allergic, too big, not housebroken, not good with preschoolers, foreclosure, landlord issues, moving, too many dogs etc.). We pull dogs that are not claimed from the local impounds when the dogs are strays and owners do not find them or do not pay the impound fee and fines. Pounds we pull from are South St Paul which covers Inver Grove Hts, St Paul Park , and West St Paul; Lakeville Impound; Burnsville, Apple Valley, New Brighton, Farmington and St Paul. When other rescues get full we help Lyon County Humane Society in Marshall MN, Wilmar, Second Chance, Cannon Falls, Long Prairie We also work with Blount County in Tennessee as well as we are a part of the Pets for Paradise Program in the Virgin Islands which helps to save and find homes for the many random-bred street dogs there!
