With the lifting of state COVID restrictions, Second Chance is excited to welcome everyone back inside our facilities. For everyone’s comfort, we have a few temporary rules as we adjust and staff members complete vaccinations.
  • Masks will be required in animal adoption rooms and lobbies (due to confined spaces)
  • Please continue to observe social distancing when possible.
How our adoption process works:
  • All potential adopters must fill out our adoption survey so we can better 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.
