Second Chance relies heavily on both contributions and on volunteers to sustain its life-saving programs. After all, running a humane society is a tough business. In addition to sheltering animals that come to us, we provide resources such as spay/neuter assistance and educational resources that must be maintained in order to prevent the birth of unwanted litters that would otherwise end up in area shelters. Your time, talent and treasure help keep Second Chance going!

Just a few of the reasons of why we do what we do!
