Welcome to Second Chance Humane Society, home to Ouray, San Miguel and Montrose County's lost or abandoned lovable pets. Since 1994 we have been saving lives through our shelter services while developing effective education programs and events. Come say hello, meet our cats and dogs and find out how you can get involved — also come visit us at one of our Thrift Stores! Read more about how Second Chance benefits people and pets throughout the Western Slope of Colorado!
This event took place on March 9, 2019 and will be back again in 2020!
Stay tuned for details on our next major fundraiser - Bow Wow Film Festival in Telluride - July 21st!
Paws for Art is a touring sale of the best artwork donations to our Thrift Shops. This allows art collectors, or those just looking for something new for their homes, a better opportunity to view these amazing pieces. It also allows us to get better prices for these donations - which go directly toward our life saving animal welfare programs and services.

1.3 million people across the nation were able to take a look at some of Second Chance Humane Society’s outreach services. The most watched series on the Animal Planet Channel, Dr. Jeff Rocky Mountain Vet, partnered with Second Chance to provide free spay-neuter and medical clinics in Nucla and Ridgway.

Fulfilling a dream formed since taking residence at Angel Ridge Ranch in 2011, Second Chance Humane Society expanded its community outreach services by hosting an animal-assisted therapy program!
Promoting the human-animal bond is one of the most important things we do here at Second Chance. We believe in the power of unconditional love we share with our pets, and are forever grateful for each one of these furry family members who enrich our lives, even long after they are gone.
