Here are some fast facts:
1. Second Hope Circle got its start by entering into the Pepsi Refresh Project contest and winning a $10,000 grant through popular vote!
2. Our most important goal is to show case hard-to-place and special needs animals to help them get adopted! Click here to see them!
3. We have a fund available to participating rescues and shelters that can help out with their emergencies.
4. Subscribe to the newsletter and you will receive a monthly update about what's going on, as well as action alerts when there are emergency situations in Ontario. Go here and click 'subscribe' in the top left hand corner.
6. We are always developing new projects, programs and resources to help us meet our goals of promotion special needs pets, funding participating organizations and providing education and resources to pet owners and nonprofits.
7. Throughout the website you may see the words 'rescue' or 'shelter'. We recognize that they are different types of organizations but the terms on the website are synonymous. We accept any rescue or shelter (or veterinary clinic) who signs the agreement and offers public adoptions so the designation is not always important. We have tried where possible to use inclusive language.
