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 meet our cats and dogs and find out how you can get involved — also come visit us at one of our Thrift Shops which support our life saving programs and services!
To support families in keeping their pets happy and healthy for their lifetime. This wellness clinic is a soft kick-off and opportunity to continue evaluating our community’s greatest needs. We will expand our list of services in future clinics but will not be providing emergency care at this time, instead focusing on low cost wellness clinics to keep pets healthy.
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.
