The Second Hope Circle Fund
(Last Updated November 2012)
**Please note we are not currently taking in any applications for funding. If you are a participating org and have a funding request for a specific animal please contact us and we will post your request on our social media pages.
The SHC Fund is available to participating rescues and shelters. By using the following application process they can apply for funding when emergency situations arise (like a life saving procedure)! This Fund will help to pay half of the total costs and in this way we hope to assist shelters and rescues without draining all of our funds at once. If you would like to donate to this Fund please use the contact tab, any contribution is greatly appreciated!

To SHC Participating Shelters and Rescues,
Please read the following carefully. I have included important guidelines and questions to help you decide if you would like to apply for funding. Once you have read this you can then download the funding application and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Second Hope Circle fund is available to participating shelters and rescues that have signed and returned the agreement to the Second Hope Circle. At the moment it is only available for emergency situations and procedures. Please list your estimated costs in as detailed a manner as possible. SHC will fund half of the total costs when possible.
Please ask yourself the following questions before applying:
1. Is this a dire emergency?
2. Do we have enough funds to cover the costs already?
3. Without funding what will happen to our rescue/shelter/animal?
4. Will funding that covers half of our estimated costs help us with this emergency?
5. Do we have other funding options available?
6. Will this animal die without this procedure?
