Owner Surrender Assistance

The dogs listed on this page are being cared for in their owners' homes because they’ve been found as strays, or are being surrendered by their owners. While we generally only take in animals from shelters, Hopalong & Second Chance Animal Rescue may be able assist in the placement of these animals.

However, we strongly encourage people to explore every possible alternative to surrendering their pets.

All Owner-Surrendered animals are required to be spayed/neutered and have current vaccinations before they can be listed with us. The individuals caring for the animals are fully responsible for their adoption and subsequent consultation. Since these animal are not in our program, we make no representations with regard to these animals.

Please fill out the Owner Surrender Form and submit it to our office if you need assistance finding another home for your animal companion.

Bug is a 9 month old Chihuahua mix who weighs about 10 pounds. Although she came to Hopalong with a broken leg, she's pretty much healed. Running like crazy at the Berkeley Marina, Albany Bulb and Pt. Isabel is her favorite thing, especially if she can entice another dog to play. She walks really well on and off leash. She's particularly good at the commands: sit, stay, come, leave it, car, in the back, kiss. She's working on fetch and settle. She's very loyal, cuddly, friendly, and funny--likes sleeping under the covers. Bug's favorite snacks are apple and carrot slices - a very healthy baby. Bug is also very energetic and wants to go walking about every 3 hours, so she's probably not a stay at home all day dog. Have you room for this little Bug who also loves little kids?
