Last Hope Animal Rescue is hosting a ‘FELINE FRENZY’ Adoption Event at the Waterloo Petsmart Store, 1506 Flammang Dr. during their National Adoption Event this weekend. Stop out and meet our adoptable animals on Saturday Sept. 14th from 10-5 and Sunday, Sept. 15th from Noon - 5:00! Last Hope has been rescuing animals in the Cedar Rapids area since 2004; they expanded into the Cedar Valley area in 2017 and currently have about 60 kitties in foster homes in Waterloo and Cedar Falls.

2019 has already been a record setting year for cat rescues, with a staggering 131 cats being rescued from 2 Hoarding situations this spring, plus a seizure in Sumner in August, not to mention the abundance of kittens we’ve taken in! Last Hope currently has over 150 kitties waiting for families to adopt them into loving homes!

We have just about any age, color, temperament and fur coat your heart desires! Many of them were just altered and may not be listed online yet, but you can fill out our online application on our website at and indicate what kind of kitty you are looking for and we’ll put our match-making skills to work and find you the kitty of your dreams!

Approx. 40 cats & kittens will be in attendance during this event, as well as several bunnies! All LHAR animals are spayed/neutered and have been treated for parasites with Revolution. Felines have had between 1-3 FVRCP vaccinations, their rabies vaccination, have been tested for FeLV and/or FIV and are negative, and they are microchipped. LHAR registers your microchip at no additional charge, and the chip has a free lifetime registration as well! Our adoption fees are quite a bargain for all the vetting they have had done; but if you adopt a pair of kitties, you will also receive a $25.00 discount!

LHAR does not do on-sight adoptions; you must be pre-approved to adopt. Visit our website at to find their online adoption application; a home visit is part of our adoption process.
