Melissa’s Second Chances is largely a foster based rescue. That means we rely upon foster homes to help us care for the dogs, cats and small mammals in our program. Foster homes help save thousands of animals’ lives every year through rescues across the Kansas City metro area. You can make Second Chances happen by fostering!


We strive to build a welcoming and inclusive community to support our fosters and the rescue. Fosters of all experience levels are welcome and programs like foster mentoring help our fosters have the best possible experience.
