Hopalong & Second Chance Animal Rescue
provides free spay/neuter services for community animals whose
caregivers can not afford to pay, as well as those community
animals entering our rescue services. We work to stop the
problem at the source—in the community—by recognizing
that rescuing an animal saves a life, but it does not stop
the pet over-population problem.
How it Works:
If you can’t afford to alter or spay your pet, we will
provide the services at low or no cost or refer you to an
appropriate resource. These include Trap/Neuter and Release
of Feral cats and free altering of Pit Bulls. We work as part
of a collaborative to solve the problem.
We strongly advocate Trap/Neuter and Release as a humane
alternative to managing feral cat populations. Feral cats
are returned to their caregivers who release them back to
Funding is needed to continue to offer free spay/neuter services.
