Hooray for "OPERATION SANTA PAWS"! Many, Many Thanks to hard-working Students from Forest Lake Elem. School in Wantagh for collecting & delivering a mountain of supplies for Last Hope dogs & cats. WOW! What a Huge Amount! Tons of Paper Towels, Pet Food, Toys, Beds, Leashes, Collars, Blankets, Treats.... Four classes organized this whole school collection drive. Yesterday Mrs. Torrellas' 6 & 7 yr old students WALKED from Forest Lake to Last Hope with their special holiday delivery following by car. Mrs. Schiavetta's, Mrs. Laliberte's and Mrs. Nicolosi's class helped run "Operation Santa Paws" too. Yes, Mrs. Torrellas' class WALKED both ways. The class was so well-behaved meeting our ambassadogs-TIMMY & PAMMY SUE... and then touring Last Hope. Mrs. T explains more about "Operation Santa Paws": "We were so happy to find a local need we could supply. It made it so real for the kids to actually come to you at Last Hope with the donations and see where they were going to be used. Thank you! A little bit about us: We read a kid friendly newspaper every week called News2You. A few weeks ago we read about Operation Santa Paws and decided to participate. Our 4 classes made posters to put up around the building .... and made announcements over the school loud speaker in the morning to remind kids to bring in the supplies that were listed on a flyer that went home. We were so happy to find-Last Hope- a local need we could supply. It made it so real for the kids to actually come to you with the donations and see where they were going to be used." Such Kind Kids! Last Hope is so grateful. SHARE #TeachingGiving. #PperationSantaPaws #ForestLakeElementarySchool #lasthopeny

R.I. P., FROG- our FROG PRINCE... "Frog" was proof of how stoic and loving a dog can remain despite prolonged suffering. This Chihuahua mix came to Last Hope in 2014 from a Virginia shelter with painful, itchy, oozing ears that had been infected and neglected for so long. Via the AMC to the Rescue program at the Animal Medical Center in NYC, "Frog" received complex, double ear canal surgery (called "TECAs") to relieve his discomfort. This surgery is quite expensive. The AMC covered costs for one ear and partially for the other, so Last Hope raised the rest from generous supporters like you via our "Frog Prince Fund". The little Prince convalesced in a wonderful foster home. Though hearing impaired because his ear canals were removed, "Frog" got along quite well. To complete his fairy tale happily ever after, "Frog's" wonderful foster parents- Maryanne & Walter- adopted him and gave him a glorious life...He was treated like royalty every single day. FROG PRINCE became a snowbird and wintered in Florida. When his parents drove there, they would stop in Maryland and FROG visited his dog cousins. He attended a Blessing of the Animals & the Bellmore Fall Fair with other Last Hope dogs and did a Santa photo ad. Yesterday we received very sad news from the PRINCE's Mom Maryanne: "It is with deep sadness that we tell you that our beloved Little Prince passed over to the Rainbow Bridge today. It was the right time to let him go after he spent the last several months with a loss of appetite and on lots of medications. He was 12 years old and lived four of those with us loving him through all his many medical problems. He loved being in Florida and yesterday we took him to some of his favorite places: walked with him on the Legacy Trail, took him to his quiet spot by the pond here in Pelican Pointe and gave him lots of his special liver treats. We will miss him very much but the memories we have of him will always be in our hearts." We send sincere sympathy to Maryanne & Warren, the Prince's pet parents and our everlasting gratitude for taking a dog who went through hell before his rescue and giving the opportunity to experience never ending love and a pet paradise on earth.
