Pet of the Week: Sophia
By West Kentucky Star Staff
METROPOLIS - Hi, my name is Sophia. I'm a very sweet 6 year old spayed female Shih Tzu that recently came to Project Hope after my owner could no longer care for me. I am puppy pad trained. I'm very laid back and easy going. I was treated for fleas when I came in to the shelter which had caused some hair loss from flea allergies. I'm spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and micro-chipped.

My adoption fee is $125 thanks to a partial sponsorship from Paws in Lyon County.

Project Hope is still closed to walk-ins until further notice (as of 6/1/20). They are still adopting out furbabies, but by appointment only. If you're interested in adopting a pet, please contact the shelter staff at (618)524-8939, for an appointment between 1 and 5 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. 

To adopt, download an application on their website at, or email for an application.
