It's World Animal Day! Grab your fur friends and give them a kiss to show your appreciation for them. Held annually, World Animal Day is an international day celebrated for our animal friends. On this day, we acknowledge both the diverse roles and enrichment that animals play in our lives. It is also where we call to action the welfare and rights of animals.
We couldn't agree more with this celebration of animal-human relationships here at HOPE Dog Rescue. True to the spirit of enhancing animal welfare, we love helping (and have a particular soft spot for) senior and special needs dogs. We are firm believers of giving rescues a second chance at life and are always there to love and care for our rescues, allowing them to be loved and cherished. Our rescue dogs never fail to inspire us with their resilience and determination despite living a life on the streets, to live their lives to the fullest.
We are always on the lookout, 24/7 for our rescues. It is our greatest wish for them to find and settle in loving homes to live out their lives with a family to call their own. Here's a spotlight of our amazing rescues still waiting to be adopted!
|Mathilda is still waiting for a home after 6 years|
Our brindle coat beauty is a playful one. Rescued from a vacated factory, she has come a long way to where she is today. However, due to her past trauma, she is rather skittish and gets easily spooked outside. Nevertheless, her gentle nature never fails to put a smile on your face.

|In a boarding facility, Adora is still waiting for her forever home|
From being abused, abandoned, and neglected, Adora has seen the negative. Coming to us emaciated, Adora has since healed and become her true self. However, her anxiety and distrust still take centre stage due to her previous experiences. With enough love and care, she will soon find her way to how every dog should be: happy, and loving life.

|Harper has taught us so much about positivity, living in the moment and dogs with special needs|
Our poster girl. What more can be said about her? Born with a severe handicap, she now takes life's little blessings and has become so much happier. Sweet natured, affectionate, and loving, what's there not to love! Our precious Harper puts a smile on anyone who meets her.

|Sharpei is still waiting for his forever home|
This gentle natured boy melts even the coldest of hearts. A previous victim of bullying by other strays, he tends to defend himself as a first instinct whenever he meets other dogs (he needs to be slowly introduced). He is however, great with humans! A very friendly companion to humans, he now waits in his boarding facility for a new home.

|Chloe the small grandma is waiting for her forever home|
Affectionately called 'ajumma' here at HOPE, she remains jovial despite being blind and deaf. Living in the moment, she loves playing with other dogs and spends most of the day catching her well-deserved beauty sleep.

|Zeus, the miracle dog, is waiting for his forever home|
Usually seen with his trusty wagon, this gentleman underwent a spinal surgery to treat multiple slipped disks. His sweet nature would charm anyone who meets him. The dearest dog anyone could lay their eyes on. He could even be a motivational speaker if he wanted to!

|Chelsea is waiting for her forever home|
Starry eyed Chelsea is a true sweetheart. Despite making very regular trips to the vet for various concerns, she takes them like a champ! Getting all the love and care she needs is our utmost priority, and it is surely appreciated by her as she returns our affections.

Our resident trooper. Also, a frequent face at the vet, he doesn't let that affect his quality of life. He lives every day to the fullest surrounded by love. The epitome of putting his best paw forward, Mantou will definitely find his way into your heart.
Our exemplary eight, our pride and joy, our family, are in our hearts this World Animal Day. We call for everyone to demonstrate what you can do to stand up for animals.
