Back in 2012, Jessica Dial discovered a small rural community in Alberta that had a dog overpopulation problem. After witnessing countless litters of puppies suffering from preventable contagious diseases such as mange and parvo she decided to do something about it and formed Hope Lives Here Animal Rescue.

Initially, the focus was to rescue, rehome, and rehabilitate dogs in need from this community but over time the mission evolved to help dogs from various other communities and situations.  

Jessica stepped down from Hope Lives Here Animal Rescue in 2016 to focus on her new and growing family.  She passed the torch to Alayna Astle who has been a committed volunteer with HLH since its inception in 2012

Hope Lives Here Animal Rescue works with field volunteers in several rural communities across Alberta to rescue dogs in need.


Adopting a dog is a life time commitment.

We will not adopt out our dogs on a first come first serve basis but rather on a best fit. As a result, we reserve the right to deny an adoption application.

Please review our adoption qualifications prior to submitting an adoption application to ensure you qualify.





HLH would like to thank our sponsors. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!!! Without your ongoing support and food donations, we couldn't help so many animals in need!
