What is 2nd Street Hooligans?
2nd Street Hooligans  is a southern California Animal Rescue and Sanctuary. We have applied for our 501(c)(3) non-profit status and are awaiting approval. We started our rescue in May 2016 and have rescued, adopted, and fostered all types of animals.

2nd Street Hooligans Animal Rescue and Sanctuary is home to animals who have been abandoned, neglected, abused, and/or released from animal testing facilities. Our mission is to educate the public about the realities of factory farming and animal agriculture and advocate for the rights, safety, and humane treatment of all animals by living a cruelty free lifestyle.

How Did 2nd Street Hooligans Come To Be?
Rachael and Nick O’Neill are the Directors and founders of 2nd Street Hooligans. While living in Long Beach, CA they had two dogs and 6 chickens in a location that was nowhere near a farm community. As they spent more time going to animal rescues and following various accounts on Instagram, they decided that this would be a future goal for them. To their surprise this goal would begin a lot sooner than expected. They came across a perfect home an hour away in a Norco, CA which is a small town known for being a horse and farm community. In a short amount of time they sold their home in the city to move inland to a small farm.

They knew they wanted to adopt a few animals but they had no idea the size and speed things would grow. In the short life of 2nd Street hooligans so far there has been over 30 residents. Additionally, there has been multiple rescues, fosters, and transports of other animals in need. Rachael and Nick have been able to fund 2nd Street Hooligans rescue along with the few donors and sponsors they have which has led to the growth of the rescue.  However, it has now reached a point financially beyond its owners and few sponsors.

Why Does 2nd Street Hooligans Need Funding?
To date, there has been over 40 private farm visits to meet the animals, hear their stories, and be educated on animals, veganism, cruelty free lifestyle, activism, and various other topics. While this has been amazing thus far, we would like to take things to the next level. Our goal is to start with a monthly event where a large number of people can come over and be a part of what the 2nd Street Hooligans does and promotes and to be educated further on animals and their lives in our modern world. We hope to spread knowledge to as many individuals as possible and to introduce those who have not been fortunate enough to be around different species of animals.

Since we have grown so quickly most of our fencing, storage, and equipment is low grade or temporarily in place. To be able to grow our following, events, and knowledge and to be able to take in future rescues we need your help!!! We are starting our Go Fund Me campaign so that we can put the proper fencing and materials in place so that not only our animals are safe but also those who visit. We have so many ideas that we plan on promoting in the future but this is our first major step. We hope to connect with as many people as possible and to bring joy, knowledge, and growth to their lives.
