Important Update About Shelter Hours and Adoptions

In order to protect our animals and the public, Second Chances will not have open hours until further notice. While this was a difficult decision to have to make, properly sterilizing our facility following each human visitor would too greatly strain our already limited resources necessary for animal care.

We are still taking adoption appointments! Appointments can be made to meet an adoptable animal either at our shelter building or off-site. If you are interested in adopting (and we hope you are!) please email to meet animals living at the shelter! To meet an animal in one of our foster homes please apply using ‘Forms’ in our website’s main menu. The adoptions team will coordinate a meet and greet between you and the foster family. We will be able to complete most of these adoptions via email.

We appreciate your flexibility and support during these uncertain and difficult times. While it is not ideal, we know each animal in our care is looking forward to a brighter future thanks to each of you.

Thank you for making Second Chances happen!
