We Need Foster Homes

Who we are:

Dogs Hope.com is  "staffed" by two volunteers. . . . Deb and Jan (staffed used loosely).  

We both live in Lake County about 30 miles East of Cleveland, Ohio.

We are not a shelter or facility where the dogs are available for viewing or surrendering. . . we are two individuals with a love for the animals.  We are two ladies who try to do everything within our limited powers to help any needy pet.

We are not a 501c3 Charitable Organization.  Maybe some day we will be a "real" charity, able to accept your donations giving you the ability to deduct them from your taxes.  But for today, we can only say "thank you" when you donate and promise that every donation has gone to a spay/neuter, vaccinations, health check-up, heartworm check, heartworm treatment, worming meds, antibiotics for sick pets and all needed veterinary care for the animals that come through our rescue.  Deb and I pay for all the above needed care out of our own pockets.

Through our rescue are key words. . . remember we're not a shelter.  When we have space in our homes we foster in our homes. . . when we don't have space in our own homes for a foster, we depend on angels that have opened up their homes to help us foster if there are not fosters available you will be asked to keep your dog until a home can be found(we really need foster homes) 

A little about us:

Deb has been helping the strays, owner surrenders and local pounds try to find good homes for needy dogs since 1977.  She has always taken  pro-active steps in our local area, she has fostered and placed numerous death row dogs throughout the years. 

Deb has a real soft spot in her heart for the German Shepherd and that is how we came to be co-rescuers and friends.  I (Jan) have always loved the German Shepherd Dog, I'd grown up with German Shepherds, raised my son with German Shepherds and now find myself a pro-active rescuer with Debbie, we've been working together since 1999. (I am also the web mistress)

How we work. . .

Please be patient with us,  if you haven't heard back from us in a couple of days with some kind note, then chances are we haven't seen your application or received your email.  Do try again. . . don't give up on us.

Thank you for visiting our site,

Raven is the reason there is a Dogs Hope.  If this wonderful girl had not come into my life, Deb & I would not have met and Dogs Hope wouldn't be what it is today. 

If you have adopted from us or we've helped you place your dog through Dogs Hope, it's because of my beloved Raven. 

It is with a very heavy heart and many, many tears falling on my keyboard that I type this tribute to my beautiful, loving, baby girl  Raven.
