High Hopes® and the Anti-Cruelty Society Help Make the Perfect Match
All Adoption Fees Waived from noon to 5 p.m.!
Love is in the air, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to adopt that new family member you’ve been wanting. On February 14, High Hopes is sponsoring all cat and dog adoption fees at The Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago.
The Anti-Cruelty Society Adoption Center (510 N. LaSalle St., Chicago) will open its doors Sunday, February 14, from noon -5 p.m. and High Hopes will be sponsoring adoption fees for cats and dogs to as many loving adopters as possible. “Our company mission is to help homeless pets, and what better way to help than to host a fee waived adoption event with The Anti-Cruelty Society?” said Paula Etchison, Founder & Pack Leader of High Hopes (www.highhopesforpets.com). High Hopes helps homeless pets 365 days a year by donating a portion from every sale of its products to The High Hopes for Pets Foundation – who in turn, donates to local shelter and rescue groups. To date, forty-five $500 grants have been disbursed.
High Hopes will be sending all dog adopters (sorry, no kitty products just yet) home with a free goodie bag of High Hopes’ dog food and treats. As nutritious as they are delicious, all High Hopes products are natural, made in the USA, and developed by a pet nutritionist with a Ph.D. in Animal Nutrition. You and your new best friend can also pose for a photo and be featured on the High Hopes Happy Tale Endings page on their website.

Seniors Rock! (Waukesha, WI)
Specializing in rescuing senior dogs, Seniors Rocks! gets most of its dogs from MADACC – a holding facility for stray animals found in Milwaukee County. However, they also work with other shelters in Wisconsin. Senior dogs do not typically thrive in a shelter environment and are more difficult for shelters to place with an adoptive family. Occasionally they will take an owner-surrender, but it is their mission to help get the dogs of out animal shelters first, or they provide hospice foster family care to make sure dogs are shown love and compassion through their final days. Completely foster-based, their devoted foster families provide the shelter, safety and most of all LOVE that they need. To learn more, visit them at www.seniorsrocksts.org.

Comments Off on Scooter’s Story: From backyard shelter dog to rescued Movie Star!
Meet Scooter, our High Hopes®’ rescue spokes-dog (also known as Wylie)!
Scooter’s story is a rags-to-riches doggie dream. A backyard dog who had never known a home or a family to love, Scooter was rescued from the Lancaster Shelter in Lancaster, California by the folks at Paws for Effect – a great group of people in Los Angeles who rescue homeless dogs and give them all the love, care and training they need to become stars in TV, movies and commercials.
Only about a year-and-a-half when he was adopted, they were quick to recognize Scooter’s beauty (he is a cutie isn’t he), smarts and special gifts right away. Last summer, Scooter travelled to location for 3 weeks of shooting to appear in his first movie role along with 11 of his BFF dog buddies, and this summer he got to travel again to Louisiana to get the lead dog role along with 13 of his other BFF’s. He always travels to his various locations in style, complete with human family and his doggie friends in a motor home full of all the creature comforts. When he’s not shooting movies, Scooter is busy working on such TV shows as American Horror Story, Various Disney Shows and commercials.
When he’s out of the limelight, Scooter is just a happy-go-lucky dog who loves people and his doggie friends. Some of Scooter’s favorite things include:
Playtime with any 2 or 4-legged companion
High Hopes® dog food
Meat and chicken treats
Find your happiness, and make a dog’s dreams come true at your local shelter or rescue group today.

Hopeful Tails Animal Rescue is a no-kill, all breed rescue rescue group comprised of volunteers dedicated to making a difference in the lives of abandoned, abused and neglected animals. In just 18 months, the group has been able to adopt out over 700 puppies, and they are not afraid to take on special medical needs dogs. Started as a foster-based program, they quickly grew to need a facility. They will be using The High Hopes® for Pets Foundation grant to help install central air conditioning to keep the dogs cool.
