Second Chance Adoption Process

Adoption Application

Thank you for considering adopting from Second Chance Humane Society! Our adoption fees vary depending on age and health of the pet. All animals adopted from the Second Chance Humane Society will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and will have had at least their first set of vaccinations.

To help make the adoption process quick and easy you can:
