Stay tuned for details about the 3rd Annual Hope for Hannah Rescue Fundraiser scheduled for September 2014. Brothers Michael and Nicholas Gowarty are working on their third event. These boys are barely teenagers and they have managed to successfully put together two fundraising events to
raise awareness about giving rescue dogs a second chance. Plus, their second annual fundraiser topped the first by almost quadrupling funds raised for the Hope for Hannah Rescue. It is a fun event and we hope to see you there in September. More details will follow. Please scroll down for highlights of the 2013 event. 

If you are interested in making a donation to the third fundraiser or donating your time to help with the fundraiser, please email us at hopeforhannahrescue@gmail.com. 
About pet availability and applications
Please note that the adoption list changes very frequently.  A pet may be adopted at any time. We understand it can be disappointing if your pet of interest has already been adopted, but we cannot guarantee availability for any particular pet. 

We update our listings as soon as possible, but the adoption websites may not update their sites until up to 24 hours later. Adopted pets may not show yet that they are adopted and new pets may not be listed yet. If you see a pet that interests you, please fill out an application and we will reply asap.
If you do not see a specific pet that interests you, please fill out an application form anyway so that 
you can give us an idea of what you are looking for and we can help you find your new family member.
If you are interested in fostering any of our pets, please fill out an application form.
(We are always in need of fosters and volunteers.)
Adopters have traveled thousands of miles to adopt our dogs.

We are excited and proud to announce that one of our adopted rescue dogs named Bailey was on TV.
 Bailey was on Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl X Tailgate Party on Super Bowl Sunday

Here's a little bit about Bailey: 
Bailey was rescued by the Hope for Hannah Rescue in May 2011. He was one of a litter of five. Sadly, three of his siblings died from canine parvovirus

Bailey was such a cute little pup, he was adopted within a few weeks. Bailey's mom, Tria Mason proudly told us, "Bailey is the most wonderful dog we have ever had!" 
Bailey attends dog obedience and agility classes. He's been known at these classes as one of the most intelligent, fastest learners they have ever worked with. Bailey passed his Canine Good Citizen test in April 2012 and proceeded to become a registered Therapy Dog with Therapy Dogs International. He regularly visits a local nursing/therapy center and everyone there loves him and they always look forward to seeing him. He sits calmly at the center while the residents pet him and fuss over him. Bailey's quite a star at the center, too. He performs various tricks for the residents. Bailey's tricks had a little something to do with being a star on TV.
Bailey is quite a busy dog. He will also be visiting a local public library where he will listen to young children read. Bailey's attendance will help boost their confidence and help the struggling readers relax and enjoy the process. 

Bailey's accomplishments are amazing. All of our rescued pets are amazing. They are a gift to every adopter, providing unconditional love and affection. As a therapy dog and landing a spot on the Puppy Bowl Tailgate Party, Bailey shows us that rescue pets are capable of doing anything!  The true meaning of all of this is that adopting a rescue pet means that you are saving a life and giving a deserving animal a new and loving home.
