Hope has made a miraculous and complete recovery over the last year. Her treatment, although lengthy and strenuous, did not affect her kind nature. Kit Moncrief said Hope adjusted quickly to her new family and home, where she is pampered and will always know love.
Kit, a lifetime animal lover who has rescued numerous pets, said Hope inspired her and a local group of women to establish the Saving Hope Foundation. The Foundation is focused on animal abuse, animal neglect and overpopulation. It is determined to put an emphasis on education, especially in the areas of spaying, neutering and vaccinations. Saving Hope also wants to help those who struggle to keep their pets because of economic hardships.
The Saving Hope Foundation will celebrate Hope’s one-year adoption anniversary by hosting “The Day of Hope” – an animal adoption and awareness fair. The event will be held at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth on Saturday, June 29. The fair will host local rescue groups, food trucks and will offer vaccination services (first 100 free) and will be held for the general public from 8 a.m. until noon.
The event will be highlighted by the dedication of Fort Worth’s’ first mobile spay and neuter clinic, which is named in Hope’s honor. The free services performed by the mobile unit are funded by The Saving Hope Foundation.
Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, U.S. Rep. Roger Williams and members of the Saving Hope Foundation board will all take part in the dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony.
