With over 15 years of saving lives, HOPE was launched in March of 2005 in an effort to help more homeless dogs find their way into forever homes.
HOPE is a program of the Central Pennsylvania Animal Alliance (CPAA), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization

The HOPE Program


Shelters are overflowing with homeless dogs in desperate need of forever homes.


Create a program that pairs inmates with homeless dogs who need training by supporting them with professional trainers, volunteers, and prison staff.


Abandoned dogs are now trained and ready to be adopted into forever homes. Inmates are given a sense of meaning and purpose while being able to make a positive impact in society.

Why Adopt a HOPE Dog?

We offer free training for life for each HOPE dog. This means that at any point of time, adopters may contact us about behavioral issues and we will send a trainer to their home at no cost to them.

Neiko (3-13-19)

Neiko is loving the warmer weather. We spend the afternoon outside in the dog runs. Neiko and Tawny play together in the runs. He takes it easy on her compared to how he plays with Ace. They love to play rough together. Tawny will nudge him with her nose until Neiko plays with her, play bowing and running around.
