Editorial: Last Hope makes a difference
When Last Hope got its start nearly 30 years ago there wasn’t much to the organization. Founder Bev Orr grew up with an interest in helping animals, and Last Hope, a no-kill animal rescue, was her way of following through.
Back in the early days there were maybe 20 or 30 volunteers to help things run. They would take in stray or abandoned animals, nurse them back to help when necessary and get them ready for a home that could take them in permanently.
