Second Chance Humane Society strives to ensure that animals are matched with suitable adopters so that they can remain in their new homes for life. We understand, however, that there are certain circumstances in which the pet you brought home is just not working out. Adopters are given the option to return the animal for a full refund of the adoption fee if the return is made within thirty (30) days of the adoption date1. In addition, Second Chance is committed to each animal for life and if at any time during the life of the animal (and after the 30 days) you can no longer keep your adopted pet, we expect that you will return the animal to us, so that we can find the right home for him/her.

1 Please note that there are no refunds for items purchased from the retail store.
