Meet Our Team

People make Hope Highway work and dogs moving to happy homes. If you love dogs you can help – a little or a lot. Think about joining our team.

Founder, President, Treasurer

We are a nonprofit organization with an amazing team of volunteers, fosters, and adopters who are committed to helping animals in our community and communities across the country. We take our convictions and turn them into action, with our main focus being street dogs from southern states. There are so many on the streets that need care and want nothing more than to be part of a family! We also help out our community by taking in surrenders around the Fox Valley area and across the state.

Our loving fosters are on the front line and first stop for each dog before they start their best life with their new forever family! They are beyond incredible!


Please let us know when you’re willing to welcome one (or more) of our dogs into your home. You’ll be saving their lives and helping them start their next chapter and yours too!


Volunteers help us with everything from transports, events, cleaning up dogs, feeding, fundraisers, and more! They are unbelievable!
