Hopalong & Second Chance Animal Rescue are committed to eliminating the euthanasia of adoptable animals in Northern California through adoption and prevention services.

Working with our partners at shelters in all the Bay Area and Central California counties, we identify and remove animals at risk of immediate euthanasia and facilitate their adoption into loving homes.

We are passionate advocates for the prevention of animal overpopulation, the direct result of uncontrolled breeding. By preventing unwanted dogs and cats from being born, we can eventually eliminate euthanasia of thousands of animals throughout the country each year.

To that end, every animal we rescue is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and provided with necessary veterinary care before being placed in his or her adoptive home.

Hopalong & Second Chance Rescue also provide outreach services throughout the Bay Area. We believe that educating the public — both children and adults — will result in the kind, humane treatment of animals that they deserve.
