Hope’s 2nd Chance Animal Sanctuary houses pets of domestic violence survivors while the survivors are either in shelters or looking for a better situation. Hope’s 2nd Chance Animal Sanctuary provides a temporary, safe, loving, and free environment for the pets, so the survivors know their pets are safe and do not have to worry about them while they are bettering their own lives.

We provide hope for the future.

Hope’s 2nd Chance Animal Sanctuary, founded by Haley McLean, gained its 501(c)3 status in October 2020 and has been doing its important work ever since!

Mission Statement: To provide a free, temporary, safe, and loving environment to domestic violence survivors’ pets while survivors improve their own situations.

Vision Statement: To provide a dependable and safe animal sanctuary that domestic violence survivors trust so that they can leave their abusive situation earlier with their beloved pets. This will keep more women, men, and children safe, along with their animals. We will provide hope to West Michigan.

Guiding Philosophy

  • Safe
  • Loving
  • Temporary
  • Free
  • Open to all

We currently accept a limited amount of dogs, cats, and other small animals while we also work to purchase land and build the facilities. This will take some time due to funding. Once our facilities have been built we will provide the below services.

Temporary, free, safe housing for domestic survivor pets while they are in shelter:

  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Small Animals
  • Horses
  • Large Animals

Assistance is provided to survivors once they are able to take their animal back, as well, including providing food, services, and any necessary supplies.

This service is provided to survivors using resources and shelters in the following counties: Montcalm, Muskegon, Ottawa, Kent, Ionia, Barry, Calhoun, Eaton, Clinton, Jackson, and Ingham. We hope to expand in the future.
