Together, we are making a difference. From all of us and the direct recipients of those services – our furry friends – we thank you.

PETCO in Marin has generously donated to Second Chance Rescue and Hopalong over the years and many dogs have been adopted at their mobile site.

PET FOOD EXPRESS is a long-time partner in Marin and the East Bay, helping us with donations and allowing us to show our animals at mobile adoptions. They provide financial support through the My Mutt poster program and other incentive programs. They also host Virtual Pet Adoptions which features animals from all the local animal welfare groups in a one-stop shopping website.

WOODLANDS PET FOOD & TREATS provide regular mobile adoptions site the first Saturday of the month from 11:00 to 1:00 pm at this beautiful new pet store in the Strawberry Village in Corte Madera. They offer generous coupons to adopters.

PETSMART has given generously to Hopalong and has provided in-store, permanent mobile adoption sites that have helped place hundreds of cats over the years.

PET VET/PET FOOD has donated food and provides a great low-fee clinic that has served our animals over the years.

YOUR BASIC BIRD in Berkeley adopts out approximately 300 cats a year and was the first permanent adoption site we established 10 years ago. We also do mobile cat adoptions there on a regular basis.
* Your Basic Bird is a host site for our Digital video program that features adoptable animals on a video screen 24 hours a day.

DOGS BY DIANE, located in Richmond, donates grooming for the many neglected small and large dogs that could not be adopted without this special service. creates high quality ID tags tht are deeply engraved using computerized diamond etching for long lasting and superior quality.
