History : Ekko was found alone, pretty skinny & very hungry in one of the communities we work with

Description: Ekko is a very spunky but sweet girl. She’s working hard on learning that puppy teeth belong on puppy toys and that her foster momma only wants kisses not puppy bites lol

She truly is just a typical puppy but with continued training and exercise we believe Ekko will be an exceptionally smart dog!!

History: Stray

I am a sweet girl with lots to learn, but I am smart and try my hardest to understand (especially when a treat is my reward). I know how to “Sit” and have almost mastered “Down” but that is a hard one cause my but is so wiggly it does not want to stay put! I am doing really well on my potty training and learning how to walk on my Leash but there is so many interesting things to see and sniff and try to catch and people and other dogs to meet…… that I will definitely need reinforcement of my walking manners to keep me well behaved on leash.
I am also learning to play fetch, I like my tennis ball and just need to work on giving it back, I return it but I sometimes don’t want to let go of it!! I have lots of energy so going to a Family that likes to be active and go for long walks would be a perfect home for me. I would also love a home with a yard as I think I’m gonna grow up to be a big girl ….. at least that’s what I hear everyone say to me when they meet me! I love getting lots of attention and pets and my Foster Mom thinks I will be a snuggle buddy when I eventually get out of the go go go puppy stage. I am Kennel trained so sleep nights in my Kennel and also stay in there when my Foster Mom has to go somewhere and I settle really well and just nap.
They called me Nova, for November, as I was rescued from being found all alone and left outside during the first cold snap in November, I definitely am grateful to Hope Lives Here for recuing me and I love my warm and cozy foster home. I am a Puppy though and I think my full name is “Nova, NO” as my Foster Mom calls me that a lot, I am just being a Puppy and doing Puppy things though but I do try my hardest to listen and behave! If you are ready for some Puppy love and antics, excited about watching me grow up and teaching me best manners, I will be your best friend forever! Please say “ Nova, YES” to adopting me and giving me my furever home!
Puppy Kisses,

Miss Bowser

History : She came into care with her Momma Ally and siblings from a community we work with when she was 2 days old

Miss Bowser has been a little hesitant about all the new things in the big world! She takes comfort in her foster sisters lead. “If the big dogs can do it, so can I!!!” She is harder to motivate without the older dogs. Having an older sibling would be a big plus for her!

Miss Bowser sleeps through the night in her crate! She is predictable in her bathroom needs, so her only accidents in the house were when her foster mom got distracted with something on the way to taking her outside. Miss Bowser will stick with her person when outside!
She is a playful puppy! She is low energy and loves her long naps in the daytime…. does not want to be in her crate during the day, however. Come meet the sweetest puppy and hear her adorable howl!

Came into foster care with her 4 sisters and her mom when she was 2 days old.

Rosy was the runt of her litter, the smallest of her 4 fur sisters. She grew up to be very playful, and a bit feisty to keep up with her bigger sisters. Rose is almost completely house trained and learning how to ring the doggy bells at the back door to be let out. As long as you get her outside after her naps she won’t have an accident inside. Her foster home has 2 small dogs and her mom and Rosalina loves to play with them! She is also a big fan of playing with her dog toys and stuffies too! She is also working on kennel training and doesn’t seem to mind it too much. She sleeps in there at night and during the day will go in herself to take naps.

Cats available for adoption

History: Annabelle was surrendered from one of our target communities where she was subjected to a lot of rough handling by children and lack of supervision made her kinda shy but once she’s comfortable she’s a very sweet girl

�Description: Annabelle is a bright eyed curious playful girl… she takes a bit to warm up but once she does she seeks her humans out to snuggle and loves to curl up around your neck for maxim closeness. She’s a funny little girl with big ears that make her over the top adorable. She would do best with a quiet home and perhaps one of her fosters siblings she’s warmed up to quite well like Fuzzy 


History : Sylvester came into care as a stray

Description: Sylvester can be shy at first but once he knows you are his person, he is so loving. His motor doesn’t ever stop, his feet are always kneeding, and if he can reach your face, head butts, face rubs and kisses come in abundance.
He gets along with other cats. He will play with them but if given the choice, he will choose people everytime.
Although he likes to cuddle and talk, he does not like to be picked up. Cuddles are always beside you and will only be on you when he deems it’s needed.
As you can tell from his round figure, food is important. Although living outside for the last 8 months, the neighbour keeping and eye on him, made sure food wasn’t an issue.
If you want a loving affectionate companion, this boy is for you. 

Theo & Tigress

History : Theo lived in a garage with little human contact before he came into care with HLH. He is now a happy house cat.
Tigress came in with her brothers and sisters, all feral kittens. She has taken the longest to warm up to people.
Theo is showing her people are ok.

Description : These two enjoy running around the house, playing in boxes and napping together. Theo is a lap cat and Tigress is slowly trying to join him there, she’s still a little skittish. They love treats, laying in their perch, in the sun, watching the world go by.
They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together

History : Bella was found in her foster home’s back yard. We brought her to the veterinarian to have her checked out, that’s when we found out she was going to have kittens.

Bella is grey with light stripes and a pretty face with a pink nose. She has a strange tail which rests on her back when she lays down. Her foster has no kids or dogs therefore not sure if she has ever had exposure to them. She does though get along with the resident cats. Look at that pretty face !!

History: He was surrendered to HLH at just 1 week old with his siblings and mama.

Description: Even though he’s younger than mac and cheese this boy is still the BIGGEST of the litter. He is Brownie’s little mini me and has us all double checking who’s who – a very long and lanky boy. He has a soft demeanor, is very playful and seeks out attention the moment he’s ready to get settled. His bright yellow eyes steal the show and he is the perfect definition of a sleek house panther. He can always be found playing with siblings or his toys and is happy to eat whatever is put in front of him. He would make a great addition to any home and has no fear of humans big or small.
***Pairs well with Banana but would probably do okay alone with lots of attention and toys***

History: This sweet girl was surrendered with her 4 babies. She was previously raised with dogs and children.

Description: This girl is mama extraordinaire, while raising four of her own she graciously “adopted” another two orphan kittens into her litter with ease. She is a little shadow and can always be found near her people. While she may not be a “lap cat” she loves attention and will chirp and roll around for more pets. She loves her food and can always be found napping in funny positions or grooming one of her babies. As she transitions from motherhood her personality is shining more and more, anyone will be lucky to have this sleek house panther in their family.

Midnight was rescued from one of our indigenous communities we work together with to help manage and rescue the stray populations

Midnight is a petite playful girl. She’s happiest when she’s playing with the other foster cat, getting attention from loving humans, filling up her little pot belly, or having a nap. This energetic cutie would love to find her forever home

Originally our volunteer planned to pick fantine up to have spayed from an uncontrolled cat colony outside in downtown Edmonton. However upon retrieval they were told fantine actually has kittens and so the hunt was on to have her help us find these babies of hers. Luckily the kittens made it into care as they were found with burns, a broken leg, and very malnourished. Likely mama and kittens had experienced abuse and fantine was especially shutdown upon initial rescue.

Fantine has the loudest pur and softest meow. She has been on quite the journey and her current foster thinks she is such a good girl going in her litter perfectly, LOVES food, and no bad habits detected so far. Once you gain her trust she is sooooo affectionate 🤗 loving all the pets and head scratches you will give her, laying in your lap or under the blanket with you and sleeps in the bed every night.
She needs time to learn new surroundings, noises or movements. I’m sure you can understand from her history why she might be on the fearful side at first but she grows her confidence quickly with your support.
Her funny quirk is she meows when she playing with her toys. She is loving her foster brothers to cuddle, groom, and play with. She is a calm energy and would do well on her own or properly introducing to other pets in the home.
She is very sweet and did we mention beautiful and hoping to find her forever family ❤️

History: This big guy has had a tough start to life. At the age of 1 his loving owner passed away & he was left with someone who didn’t take care of him. He spent the next 2 years being painfully neglected. Luckily Hope Lives Here was able to step in just in time to save this sweet lovable boy’s life!


If a baby could be personified in a cat, it would be Rogue! He loves nothing more than to be carried around in your arms, sitting on your lap, or snuggling beside you no matter where you are: he even jumps up on surfaces to stand up & put his paws around you to make it easier to pick him up! As Rogue is very smart & curious he will explore everything around him, especially if he sees something shiny or yummy.

The cat that came into our care is not the same as one here today. Since he wasn’t properly cared for during vital years he didn’t learn how to play but now he is a play machine! As he’s still new to playing when he gets in his excitable mode he may think your hand is a toy so we think it’s best that if there are children in the home that they are older. It is also best if Rogue is the only pet in the home as he wants all the human love to himself to make up for the years he went without!

His ideal home will need good upper body strength, be patient in teaching him how to play, & love him as much as he will love you. Will you be the one to pick him up & never let him go?

Bob & Christian Grey

Hiya C Grey & Bob popping in to say hello. We came back into care after being adopted for two years due to absolutely no fault of our own. We are a shy pair of handsome kitties but do warm up. Bob says he’s less of a scaredy cat then C Grey ( which is definitely true) but we both like to be pet and brushed and we do interact with our current fosters. We don’t really enjoy being picked up but sit beside us once we have time to settle in and pet us all you like. We have gorgeous fur and it is irresistible !! We just need a patient family to let us get settled and we’ll show you how sweet we can be. If you are that home please apply today 🙂

Hello! My name is Kitty. I’m approx 3 years old and have lived outside my whole life. I am a really sweet girl who doesn’t cause any problems. I use the litter box, don’t scratch anything and am just a petite sweetheart who would really love a home with a single person or a couple that could have another calm kitty but no dogs, they are for sure scary still. I have so much love to give! I did have 2 kittens a couple years ago (Chunk & Sloth), and after that I was spayed. If you think you have the perfect quiet loving home please apply today

History: George & his sibling, Lexi, were surrendered from a partner community. They haven’t had much human contact before coming into foster care.

Description: George is very shy & skittish. With time, he has come closer & has allowed an occasional pet but prefers to approach you. And when he feels up to it, he will sit next to you or just recently on your lap! Patience & time will build trust and confidence with him. He’s a beautiful kitty who loves playing with toys & snuggling with other cats.

It would be preferred that he be adopted out with Lexi. Or at least a home with another cat.

Mama abandoned pregnant in north edmonton. Dot is one of 6 kittens that were born.

A very affectionate kitten. She has a soft meow which she uses to ask for love or to chat with you. She is great with kids/people and has done well with proper introductions to other pets and loves playing/being with her siblings. She is the last one of the bunch waiting to be adopted at Petsmart so we would love to see her adopted and not having to wait alone for too long
