Hope and Second Chances Veterinary Fund

Community Involvement General  

When animals with extreme medical needs are taken in by South Bend Animal Care and Control (SBACC), the 

hope and second chances veterinary fund

shelter staff is often faced with making difficult decisions. Because the funds needed to pay for expensive surgeries and treatments are simply not available, the animals have traditionally been euthanized. Many of these animals would have made wonderful, loving pets if they had only had access to the medical treatment they needed.


That’s where the Hope and Second Chances Veterinary Fund (HSCVF) comes in. The HSCVF was created to give these animals the second chances they deserve. By paying for medical treatment that otherwise would not be available to them, the Fund is saving livesthat in the past would have been lost. Administered by CARE of South Bend (CARE),

the HSCVF pays for lifesaving medical treatment for sick and injured animals at SBACC. These animals get the veterinary care they needto get back on their feet, and then are put up for adoption when they are healthy enough to be placed into a permanent home.​



Over the years, hundreds of animals at SBACC have received medical treatment paid for by CARE. The HSCVF will greatly enhance CARE’s ability to make a lifesaving difference for animals with some of the greatest medical needs.

How Do Weather Events Impact Roads?

When winter hits in Indiana, we all know how downhill road conditions can go. The weather has more impact on our daily lives than we tend to realize—at least until the air turns cold, precipitation turns snowy, and we hit that first “black ice” patch of the season. Staying safe on the roads during the sometimes treacherous winter months really comes down to being prepared for what could happen. It’s important to at least be aware of the worst case scenarios so, if and when they do happen,...

Strange Halloween Law Suits

The Halloween season has a way of bringing out a new round of personal injury cases – ones with an entirely different, somewhat-spooky nature. With kids and adults alike dressed in costumes, pretending to be masked vigilantes or mystical characters, it can be very difficult to know what’s real and what isn’t. It can also make it more difficult to determine whether or not a situation is safe. We’d like to encourage you to stay safe this Halloween as you’re out trick-or-treating or at a...
