The clock runs out for so many dogs. Jenny, our inspiration, lived only with hope, until the lucky day when our founding president discovered her and Jenny's hopes came true! Jenny, an adult puppy mill rescue dog, came with a steep price tag. As a puppy mill pup, bred over and over again, her health was precarious. We knew Jenny was very sick, but there was a great chance of survival and a very happy life filled with the love she never knew. It took several thousands of dollars and many months to restore her to the health she should have always had. And now it's just a matter of maintaining her in the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed.
So many other dogs are not so lucky and that weighed heavily on our hearts and minds. This rescue was born to help others, in shelters, abandoned, tossed out, abused and neglected. See our "Past and Present Rescues" page to view all the sweet souls we have saved.

Jenny's Hope Rescue is very proud of our "Seniors for Seniors" program. We believe that Human Seniors should have a companion close to their side. We believe that Senior Dogs should have the final chapter in their lives be the best of their lives. So many pass up on senior dogs in shelters, we do not. We will pull a senior dog, fully vet him and offer him to a Human Senior at NO COST so they can spend that adoption fee they did not have to pay on something they need. We know you know of someone in your life who qualifies and needs a companion. Send them to our website and look together.
Until you have held a tiny puppy in your arms as it kissed your face with slobbery puppy breath and felt the love,
Until you have held an injured or severely ill dog in your arms and felt their pain
Until you have looked into the eyes of a tired aging senior dog and felt their wisdom
And until you have seen and understood the look in your dogs eyes that tell you their time on earth with you is over .... and you humanely let them go,
You will never understand the life of a rescuer.
We find beauty in the most incomprehensible places and the otherwise homely faces.
It is our gift to see beyond the dirt, terror, sadness and defeat and find the true soul that lies within.
We are Rescue.

Because we want to ensure all of our animals are placed in environments where they can thrive for the balance of their lives, we reserve the right to screen our prospective adoptive owners and to terminate the adoption process at any point. In order to affect a successful and problem-free placement, our adoption process takes into account the temperament, age and condition of the animal and the environment it will be placed in. Family members’ ages and long-term expectations of the prospective home will also be considered. We have only the best interests of the animals and the new pet owners at heart and we seek to avoid misplacements which will end in heartache for everyone. We appreciate your understanding in the event we feel you and a chosen animal are not the right match.
