 How our adoption process works:
  • All potential adopters must fill out our adoption survey so we can help you find the right pet.
  • During high visitor times, we use a number system to hold your place in line.  We assist as many people as we have staff to accommodate.  This allows us to give you a better, personalized experience by having a dedicated adoption counselor.
  • Adoptions are on a first come, first serve basis.


We recommend checking our Adopt a Pet page for the most up-to-date source for pets available for adoption at Second Chance.


Satellite Adoption Facilites


SATELLITE UPDATE: Due to a successful adoption week, there will be no satellite adoptions on Wednesday, July 17 at Northborough PetSmart.  We hope to have additional cats ready for adoption for our Saturday satellite hours.  Thanks for your understanding.
