[ Second Chance Donations Information ]

Hopalong Animal Rescue could not exist without the extraordinary generosity of our individual donors, foundations and corporations. Every dollar raised provides care, medical services and an opportunity for an animal to have a second chance at a new and wonderful life.

Expenses related to rescue, foster care, veterinary care and placement significantly exceed the money raised through adoption fee donations. Our perating costs continue to rise, including monthly expenses such as phones, gasoline, car insurance, postage, supplies, printing, educational materials, website, and other administrative costs. Each year we are able to rescue more animals in need, but the costs go up proportionately. Rotating testimonial placeholder

Your gift allows us to be a lifeline to unwanted animals when they have run out of time. Our heartfelt thanks for your support.

At Hopalong Animal Rescue, we go the distance for all the dogs, puppies, cats and kittens we save. Sometimes that means managing the unexpected health issues or extended boarding required for some dogs before they can be placed in permanent homes. To provide for the unexpected special needs of our animals, we established the Special Needs Fund.
