We are often asked “Who is Jenny?” Well, Jenny was rescued when she was approximately 7 months old, pregnant and malnourished. Jenny was abused by her owners and tied to a chain. Jenny gave birth to 7 puppies but sadly only 6 survived. Co Founder Debbie kept one of her puppies; now known as Kuala and the remaining puppies found their forever homes. Today Jenny is doing extremely well, she has some thyroid problems due to her age now but is living a very happy and healthy life in her forever home. Jenny has been our inspiration and she is why we started the very first ever Super Pet Adoption Event in the Tri-Cities for Jenny’s Hope that all abandoned and neglected animals will find their forever home!
Jenny’s Hope is a registered WA state non-profit organization.
Jenny’s Hope is helping find forever homes for the orphaned pets in our community. We feel all dogs and cats deserve a second chance at finding a loving home to bring you joy and companionship.
We started Jenny’s Hope in 2009 because we wanted to help the local shelters and rescues who were doing such amazing work helping animals. We felt there was a need to create more awareness in the community about the wonderful adoptable animals waiting for their forever homes and believed a Super Pet Adoption Event could do that. Thanks to our dedicated and hard working volunteers and sponsors, it has.
Our Super Pet Adoption gives shelters a way to come together for the same cause; helping animals find their forever home. It gives these animals a chance to shine away from a shelter in a fun and exciting environment and gives families an opportunity to see how wonderful all of these animals really are.
Why is this event important? Shelters work out of kennels, dogs and cats can be scared and timid inside a row of kennels as they are confused as to why they are there. Rescues work from their homes through fosters and are not always immediately available to meet with. This event allows shelters and rescues to bring these animals to a neutral ground where you will see them come out of their shell. They get an entire day to play in the park, be shown lots of affection and hopefully find their forever home (this is important enough). No matter how big or small the shelter and rescue is this also gives them an opportunity to let our community know what they are all about and continuing to educate! How they’re striving to help our community in finding the orphaned pets a chance at a new life! Not only will you find local shelters and rescues we also invite different vendors to attend adding diversity and knowledge.
Our event is held each year on the last Saturday in April at the East end of Columbia Park at the Band Shell Stage.
