In the event that you must surrender a pet, Second Chance can assist you in finding a suitable home. Although the responsibility remains yours, we can help in the following ways:

  • Placing the pet on our Adoptable pets page.
  • Matching you with someone on our "wish-list" searching for a particular pet breed/type.
  • Assessing whether the pet can be accepted into our shelter.
  • Provide you with additional resources/shelters for placing your pet.

CALL US AT 970.626.CARE(2273)

Finding a suitable home can take time - begin the process of re-homing your pet as soon as possible.
