Meet Hopeful Hope!
Hope got her name because any cat that goes into the shelter in the condition that she did and lives to tell the tale gives hope to all animals.
Hope was originally picked up in 2007 by an animal control officer after she was hit by a car. The officer took her back to the shelter, where staff found that Hope’s accident left her with a broken pelvis. But she didn't let that stop her! She was a determined little gal even then, and that day, she dragged her back legs behind her to make it to the litter box in her cage.
We fell in love with this special cat, and we were determined that she could have a new chance at life. With a strong will to survive, some medical care to help her heal, and lots of love, Hope recovered nicely and was ready for a new home. A new family adopted her, but, sadly, it was not to be her permanent family. Only 10 months later, she was dropped off at a shelter -- where her adopters were seeking euthanasia simply because she needed dental services. Luckily, the shelter scanned Hope for a microchip before euthanasia, and they found that she had a No More Homeless Pets in Utah microchip. Here at No More Homeless Pets in Utah, we make a lifetime commitment to all of our animals. So at that time, Hope safely made her way back to us and received a check-up and dental care before moving into her foster home.
Despite the rough life that Hope has had so far, she is a very loving and affectionate gal. She's the sweetest, most gentle lap cat you’ve ever met, and loves other cats and even dogs. She’s a real cuddler and loves to sleep in bed with her people. She’ll snuggle up next to you with a paw always stretched out to touch you while she sleeps. Hope has been patiently waiting for 3 years for a forever home where she will be taken care of and loved for the rest of her life. If you want a feline companion who will return your love for the rest of her life, Hope is your girl!
