H.O.P.E. Celebrates Adopt-A-Dog-Month

What Can An Adopted Dog Bring To Your Life?

There are as many responses to that question as there are dogs in this world! That’s why -- during American Humane Association’s Adopt-A-Dog Month celebration in October -- we’re encouraging people to adopt a rescue or shelter dog and experience the joy of finding their own answers.

Are you looking for

  • an exercise buddy?
  • a best friend and confidant for your child?
  • a dog you can train with to learn animal-assisted therapy?
  • a partner in agility competitions?
  • a constant companion for your favorite senior citizen?
  • a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work?

    An adopted dog can be all these things -- and so much more!

We have friendly dogs looking for a 2nd chance at a forever home. During the month of October we are reducing our adoption fee to $50. An approved application is required and can be completed online or here at the shelter.

If you're not ready to adopt quite yet but willing to help out, Super One Foods of Ironwood is selling "Dog Bones" for a $1 donation. All proceeds will help us with our goal of adopting 10 dogs this month.

Thank you for your support!

@ Ojibway Correctional Facility Training

2 year old neutered male Pit Bull / Lab mix that arrived from a higher kill shelter in lower Michigan. He is a handsome, fun-loving dog that loves attention and playtime. He needs a little more work walking on a leash but does know some basic commands and is eager to please.

4 year old neutered male Pit Bull mix that was found stray in Ironwood. He's friendly, well-behaved and very smart. He would make a loyal companion for someone that doesn't have any other dogs or cats in their house.

In foster

8 year old neutered male Black Lab mix that was recently surrendered. He is friendly but can be protective of his owner. He would make a nice watchdog and would fit in well with other dogs.




1 year old spayed female Shepherd mix that was found stray in Ironwood recently. She's very shy and scared in her kennel but once out of it she warms up nicely. If you have a tennis ball, watch out, she's ready to play!

@ Ojibway Correctional Facility Training

9 year old spayed female Pit Bull mix that was found stray in North Ironwood. She's a spunky girl that is full of love, light, and a zest for life! Kya arrived at the shelter with a softball sized mammary tumor which was successfully removed but was found to be cancerous so it may well return. Our hope is that she will spend her remaining time getting one-on-one attention and hopefully a forever home.


@ Ojibway Correctional Facility Training

1-2 year old spayed female Lab mix that was recently found stray in the Watersmeet area. She is a very people friendly dog that is full of energy but does settle down once she's out of the area of the other barking dogs at the shelter.

In foster

Older neutered male Husky mix that was recently found neglected. He is quite active for his age and, being a Husky, quite independent.

In foster

10 year old spayed female Black Lab that was recently surrendered. She is an extremely sweet, older dog that was well taken care of. She's had maybe a few more treats than she should have but she would make a nice dog for someone looking for a slower companion.

8 year old neutered male Lab mix that was recently surrendered along with BEAR & BUFORD. He is an excellent companion who walks great on a leash, never leaving your side.


2 -3 year old neutered male Chihuahua mix that was recently transferred from a downstate Michigan shelter. He is an extremely friendly dog that bonds instantly to anyone giving him attention. He needs a little time to adjust to a new dog or cat in his presence. He likes to play hide and seek under his bed and blanket and is crate-trained.


10 year old neutered male Lab mix that was recently surrendered along with BUFORD & CHANCE. He is a loveable laid-back dog who knows his basic commands.He likes to be outside and enjoys going for walks.


8 year old neutered male Lab mix that was recently surrendered along with BEAR & CHANCE. He likes to be outside and is very playful for his age. He will show off his obedience (with a treat, of course) and likes being around people.
